David Beckham, football (soccer) player for Los Angeles Galaxy and former captain of the English team, is an athlete who has multiple tattoos (at least twelve), three of which commemorate his three sons.

A lot of David Beckham's tattoos were drawn by Louis Molloy including the name of Beckham's third son Cruz, three cherubs on the inside of his biceps to represent each of his children and a grey-work sleeve.

Beckham is also the husband of Spice Girl Victoria Beckham.


  • Funnily enough, and I know it might sound strange, but I actually enjoy the pain. But I won't have something done without meaning. It must have something to do with my family, or something I believe would protect myself or my family.
  • I like the feeling that those two boys [Brooklyn and Romeo] are with me even when I'm away from home. And not just in my heart. I had their names tattooed on my back after each one was born. There's a guardian angel there, too, looking after them both. My dad had three tattoos of his own and so the idea has been with me since I was a kid .... The idea came to me much later, a little while after Brooklyn was born. I was talking to Mel B and her then-husband, Jimmy Gulzar, and the subject of tattoos came up. I ended up going to this Dutch guy who'd done all of Jimmy's. I'd finally realized what I wanted a tattoo to represent. Mine are all about the people in my life, my wife and sons, who I want with me always. When you see me, you see the tattoos. You see an expression of how I feel about Victoria and the boys. They're part of me.
