Brooklyn Beckham shares picture of first tattoo
Brooklyn Beckham has shared a close-up picture of his first tattoo.
The 18-year-old aspiring photographer – whose parents are David and Victoria Beckham – had an inking of a Native American chief inscribed onto his forearm at the Shamrock Social Club in Hollywood and he took to Instagram to reveal the finished product.
Sharing an image of the tattoo on the picture sharing website, he wrote: "And we are done".
Brooklyn’s tattoo was completed by the legendary tattoo artist Mark Mahoney at his Shamrock Social Club on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood.
Mark is the owner of and the principal artist at Shamrock Social Club, which is hugely popular with celebrities and he has also worked with Lana Del Rey on two of her music videos.
Brooklyn wrote: "Honoured to have my first tattoo done by dads friend Mark Mahoney(sic)," and added: "Thank you so much Mark x just like dads.(sic)"
While Brooklyn got his inking on his forearm, David has the same tattoo on his side.
And they are clearly following a Beckham family tradition as David and his father Ted also have identical tattoos.
Explaining the tattoo of a ship he has etched just below his armpit on his torso, David previously said: "The ship. My father has exactly the same tattoo."
And that’s not the only tattoo David has to remind him of his family, as he has a number of inkings dedicated to his children – Brooklyn, Romeo, 14, Cruz, 12, and Harper, five.
Speaking about the word ‘Buster’ he has tattooed on his neck, David said: "My first son, I’ve always called him buster."
On his torso, David has the words "we love you daddy", written in his children’s handwriting.
He said: "My children actually wrote the words ‘we love you daddy’."
David also explained the meaning behind the tattoo on the palm of his hand, which is based on a drawing done by his daughter Harper.
He explained: "I was watching Harper draw one day, and I thought ‘I’m gonna have it tattooed on me.’
"The story of my life is written on my skin. Don’t expect to read it on my face."
