Victoria Beckham was apparently right on the money with the birthday gift she gave her husband this year, because David Beckham recently cashed in the tattoo voucher and got some brand-new ink on his chest! Adding to the large Jesus and cherubs tattoo he got inked on the left side of his chest in 2011, Becks revealed tattoo number 33 during a California beach vacation with his family last week. The actual design of the tattoo, which is inked on the right side of the model and former soccer star’s chest, remains a mystery, although it looks like it might include an outdoor scene with trees and one or two people. We’re thinking David Beckham has either gotten inked with another religious tattoo, or he may have finally gotten that “romantic” anniversary tat he has been hinting at!
Beckham Keeps it All in the Family
Most of David Beckham’s tattoos are tributes to his wife and four kids – Romeo, Brooklyn, Cruz and Harper – and he has been quoted as saying the inkings inspired by his family are the ones he cherishes the most. The tattoo enthusiast has quite a few pieces dedicated to his sons and daughter, including the “Romeo,” “Brooklyn” and “Cruz” tattoos he sports on his back, and the elegant “Harper” tat he had inked on his collarbone shortly after his little girl was born in July 2011. In past interviews, David has been quoted as saying: “[My tattoos] are all about the people in my life, my wife and sons, who I want with me always. When you see me, you see the tattoos. You see an expression of how I feel about Victoria and the boys. They’re part of me.” It’s not a stretch then, to assume that David Beckham’s chest tattoo may be another tribute to his loved ones.
It’s hard to believe that David Beckham only has 33 tattoos, considering the fact that he has two full sleeves already and has now completed a full chest tattoo as well with his latest ink. Until David speaks out about his chest tat (or until we can get a better close-up of the image), we can only speculate about the meaning, but our guess is that the model’s new tattoo is a tribute to his wife of 14 years, Victoria. The celebrity couple already has quite a few matching relationship tattoos, so if David’s new tat is an anniversary tribute to their lasting love, could there be a new Victoria Beckham tattoo in the cards as well?
