David Beckham is really fond of getting tattoos on his body to mark special occasions … like the birth of his sons, his wedding anniversary … Tuesday … so it should come as no surprise that he has, apparently, already gotten a new tattoo to commemorate the birth of his 3 week old newborn daughter Harper Seven. In a new interview filmed this week, a new tattoo can be seen peeking out of the top of Becks‘s shirt. Now the full tattoo is not visible … but it looks like he had the name Harper Seven tattooed in script on his collarbone.
He’s famously already got body art dedicated to his wife Victoria and sons Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz – so it was only a matter of time before David Beckham got a new inscription to mark the birth of daughter Harper Seven. The couple’s first baby girl was born earlier this month and proud father David gave a teasing glimpse of the new inking on his neck this week during a television interview for his club LA Galaxy. The new design appears to be of curled lettering, suggesting he has had Harper Seven’s name inscribed in a fancy font. The inking sits just above his tattoo of Jesus being carried by three cherubs, which are meant to symbolise sons Brooklyn, 12, Romeo, eight and Cruz, six. Beckham said at the time: ‘It’s Jesus being carried by three cherubs and obviously the cherubs are my boys and so my thought of it is that at some point my boys are going to need to look after me and that’s what they’re doing in the picture. It means a lot.’ The 36-year-old LA Galaxy star is known for his array of tattoos, many of which are dedicated to his family. As well as the cherubs David already has the names of his three boys and an inscription of Victoria’s name written in Hindi. He also a six-inch tattoo of Victoria as an angel, accompanied with the words ‘til death do us part.’ David has previously said his tattoos are a way of expressing how he’s feeling, explaining: ‘Most of my tattoos are memories and things that mean things to me. There’s not one tattoo that I’ve got on me that doesn’t mean something.’
It is very likely that in addition to Harper‘s name in script, Becks added another cherub to his Jesus tattoo. Becks sure does love his tattoos so it really is no surprise that he was itching to get a new one in honor of Harper … but he must’ve really been anxious to get it done. The girl isn’t even a month old yet. I’m sure we’ll be seeing a photo of Becks‘s newest tattoo soon enough. Can’t wait to see it.
