David Beckham and his dad have matching tattoos
David Beckham and his father have matching tattoos.
The 41-year-old former England soccer star has multiple etchings all over his body, and has revealed the story behind a few of them in a new commercial for his new collaboration with skincare brand Biotherm Homme.
Explaining the tattoo of a ship he has etched just below his armpit on his torso, the star 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, 17, Romeo, 14, Cruz, 11, 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 star – who is married to Victoria Beckham – previously debuted the tattoo on Instagram in October.
The caption at the time read: "Apparently Harper is allowed to scribble on daddy (sic)"
And David closed the commercial by explaining that his story is "written on [his] skin".
He said in the video: "The story of my life is written on my skin. Don’t expect to read it on my face."
