History of David Beckham Tattoos

His body is covered with different tattoo designs all of them bringing some meaning and importance to the player. Victoria Beckham’s husband and a father of 3 children David Beckham has tattoos for each of them. The first tattoo he got was in 1999 – the name of his first son Brooklyn is inked on his lower back. After one year huge guardian angel tattoos got a place on his back to guard Brooklyn, but  when the second child Romeo was born his name was added on David’s upper back above the angel and the 3rd son’s name ‘Cruz’ got its place below  the feet of the angel. So that’s not an angel to guard himself – that’s an angel to guard his children. Later one more protective tattoo was added on the back of his neck – the cross with wings.

His wife Victoria also has got several signs on his body. Firstly, he decided to ink the name ‘Victoria’ on his left hand, but he didn’t want this word to be too confusing for other so he chose to ink it in Hindi. Unfortunately, it is misspelled in Hindi, so it actually is written as ‘Vihcktoria’. Below her name is a phrase in Latin “Ut Amem Et Foveam” meaning “So that I love and cherish”. The picture of his wife is also inked on David’s left arm together with „Forever By Your Side”.
