Beckham the Birthday Girl

Happy Birthday, Vix!!

Superstar couple David Beckham and Victoria Beckham shop in Paris together on Tuesday, snatching up items to help celebrate today, Victoria‘s 33rd birthday.

The pair were spotted browsing through Azzedine Alaia and Colette stores.

For insider info and pictures about Becks new tattoo, read on!

The story behind Beckham’s amazing new tattoo

David Beckham has had an unsightly 2ft-long tattoo etched over the entire surface of his right arm.

The marking, which he has showed off in its entirety for the first time, joins a clouds and cherub design over his shoulders with numerous other tattoos on his arm and wrist to make one continuous piece of ‘artwork’.

Beckham revealed the design as he took his wife Victoria on a romantic break in Paris to celebrate her 33rd birthday – her last in England before the pair move to California.

The new monster tattoo: Joins up all Beckham’s previous artwork on his right arm

The design was needled in two sittings by Manchester based tattoo artist Louis Malloy on Sunday 11th March and Tuesday 13th March, the day Beckham bid farewell to Manchester United fans.

It consists of two ‘symbolic’ pieces that reflect the ‘deep turmoil he feels about going to LA’ said a source close to the former England captain.

Most significant, said the source, are the words ‘Pray For Me’ inscribed on the inside of his right wrist.

“This is how he feels about the massive move from being an English boy through and through, who has represented his country for many years and is now turning his back on England to embrace America,” the source said.

“The move was never an easy decision and it wasn’t really David’s, it was Victoria’s from day one.

“The tattoo is not something Victoria wanted him to go ahead with as she felt it would not be a good start to their time in LA, but David was adamant that he would show his true feelings about the move and stop covering it up, even if it is rather cryptic,” the source added.

The three words are inscribed next to another symbolic piece Beckham apparently wanted to reflect who he feels he has been for the past ten years – a Knight Templar, symbolised by a cross.

The Templar Knights, recognisable by their white mantle with distinct red cross, are for David the symbols of him and the England team.

He asked the tattoo artist to etch the Knight Templar on his arm as he “feels the knights were the best equipped, trained, and disciplined fighting units of the Crusades, just as he has always tried to be as a footballer representing his team of knights”.

The main tattoo on the forearm is a giant angel sentinel, holding a flame in her hand so that her face is illuminated from below. The wings spread round Beckham’s arm and merge with the existing tattoos

The second tattoo across his arm is a quote by the Roman Emperor Tiberius and also used by Caligula.

It reads: “Lets them hate (me) as long as they fear (me).”

It is written in English though Beckham originally wanted it written in Latin.

The reason he was advised not to do it in Latin is because the middle word would have been ‘dum’, which he is understood to have been adamant he did not want on his arm for fear of cruel jibes about his own intellect. The new tattoo’s detail is difficult to make out, since it is merged with tattoos which were already there.

The end result is a rather unpretty mess.

Already on the arm are the words ‘Perfectio In Spiritu’ which means ‘spiritual perfection’, and the roman numerals VII – which relates to Beckham’s No7 shirt.

Beckham’s left arm carries wife Victoria’s name in Hindi plus the words Ut Amem et Foveam (So that I love and cherish). On his back he has a huge angel in the shapoe of a cross and his three sons’ names Romeo, Brooklyn and Cruz.

  • J3$$!C@

    Very sexy guy.

  • JessicaRay

    it looks like it says “i play for me” or “play for me” which would fit better with the “let them hate so long as they fear” bit. i duno, but it still looks hot.

    and that article is from the uk paper the daily mail – they absolutly hate the beckhams so anything from them id take with a pinch of salt.

    becks looks stunning and posh looks like shes filled out a bit more – well a little bit! her dvb jeans are gorgeous – i soo want a pair now!

  • tiffany9

  • *louisa*

    that article is taken from the daily mail – they hate the beckhams coz the becks sued them a few years back – so most of what they write on them is aload of rubbish!

    yesturday they claimed they were in london when in actual fact david was training with real madrid and victoria picked the kids up from school!

  • bobee22

  • Lara

    WOW,i have to say that i dislike her but she does have an amazing style.Simply great.She never fails to make a statment and it looks so effortless on her.This outfit is perfection,the Birkin,amazing jeans and that sexy top-its just great.
    I think she and Kate Moss have amazing styles,Sienna Miller is a hack these women are the real deal.

    Still not totally convinced by her,though.I need to see her tallk,to see how she behaves.etc.
    I am happy she is coming to US.Nicole Richie,Lindsay Lohan.etc have nothing(style wise)on this woman.She is probably like any self-absorbed celeb but at least she has style and a great one at that.The fact that she dosent have a stylist-is amazing,just wow.
