Earlier today we learned that David Beckham recently got a new tattoo inked onto his arm in celebration of his 10 year wedding anniversary with Victoria Beckham. During his interview with Matt Lauer on the Today Show this morning, Becks revealed that he had 10 roses tattooed around his arm … one rose for each year he’s been married to Vicki B. Here is what Becks‘s new rose tattoo looks like:
David Beckham was obviously keen to show off his new tattoo. Dressed in a sleeveless vest which revealed his toned biceps, he posed for the cameras as he returned to the pitch for the first time for team LA Galaxy following his loan to AC Milan. But with his body already covered in numerous inkings only the most eagle-eyed of fans would have spotted the newly added ‘ring o’ roses’ on his left arm. As with many of his etchings, there is a romantic reason behind them – each rose symbolises a year of his marriage to wife Victoria. Beckham is said to be planning a pair of ‘tattoo sleeves’, covering his right and left arms. And the new roses will certainly help the 34-year-old on the way to his goal. The rose tattoo was acquired recently as they were not visible when Beckham starred in his recently unveiled advertising campaign for Emporio Armani. The new ink comes after the couple celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary on July 4 with a luxury getaway to a private island in the Seychelles. While Victoria may be pleased with his latest romantic etching, David was said to have caused angry scenes when he ignored his wife’s advice and added a biblical proverb to his arm. The design – created by Beckham’s regular artist Louis Malloy – was a Hebrew translation of ‘My son, do not forget my teaching but keep my commands in your heart.’ It accompanied another Hebrew phrase on the same arm which reads: ‘I am my beloved and my beloved is mine’. But a source said: ‘Victoria doesn’t think David should have any more tattoos and tried to stop him having another. She likes them but wants a bit of his skin to be left, but David went ahead with it anyway.’
Aww … what a cute gesture. While I personally think that Becks should prolly cool it with the tats, I find it hard to believe that his wife VB has any problem with his decision to get as many tattoos as he likes. The couple made it thru 10 years together … which is a very good indication that the couple will be together for many more years to come. I don’t really love the roses … do you?
