David Beckham: My Jesus Tattoo Represents Me

David Beckham hits the field during a training session with the LA Galaxy on Friday (February 25) at the Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif.

The 35-year-old soccer star recently posted some new pictures of his chest tattoo on his Facebook page.

“It’s Jesus being carried by three cherubs and obviously the cherubs are boys,” David said in a video message about his new ink.

“My thought of it is, at some point my boys are going to need to look after me and that’s what they’re doing in the picture,” he explained.

David added that the tattoo took more than eight hours to complete but it was well worth it.

“There’s not one tattoo I’ve got on me that doesn’t mean something,” he said.

WHAT DO YOU THINK of David Beckham’s Jesus tattoo?

    What happens if he has another son? does he have to add a cherub?

  • Allie

    They’re all horrible. I remember watching him play in 1995-98 when he was fresh faced and didn’t have a tattoo on him – he looked great. And it freaks me out that his oldest wants a tattoo because his dad does. He can’t even wear a suit without seeing the tattoos creeping out. And we know David isn’t the smartest, but he does know he’s got another kid on the way? Just means that he’s going to have to get another tattoo.

  • Allie

    He looks horrible. I saw a video of him playing in 1996 the other day – I can’t believe its the same guy . What worries me the most is his oldest wanting to get tattoos because his dad does. That should be reason enough not to cover your body.

    And he does know he’s got another kid on the way – another tattoo then.

  • James

    @Allie: Why does it worry you? Do you know them or their children? They seem to be doing alright with their parenting so far, and he’s said he’s kept one of his arms free if he has another child.

    1. Noone cares.
    2. The tattoo is lame.
    3. His sham of a marriage to his freaky wife lasted surprisingly long.

    How to ruin a body.

  • Iffy Miffy

    The guy is so dumb it’s painful … hello, 4th kid on the way?! But hey it’s a girl supposedly so she must not matter huh?

  • RL

    too many.. after 2-3 tattoos on one body its all get blury and just look messy. i dont like that !

  • Lisa


  • maxwell

    So David thinks he’s like Jesus? Wow, he’s not just a cheesedouche, he’s a deusional cheesedouche.
    @XYZ: Vikkie won’t divorce him, despite the fact that he’s a philanderer, because they’re marriage is more like a business contract. She’d go to being nothing, and he’d be just another cheating dirtbag athlete.

  • Mikado

    The tattoo is a marvellous piece of Art, if it were not on a human skin. It may be fashion, but I do not like tattoos.
    And Beckham—> Jesus????

  • Mikado

    Good one.

  • sisie

    That tattoo looks like he’s god and his children are just his subjects… I don’t know, but what a piece of nonsense

  • shubert

    Bwahahahahahahahahaha. Tool.

  • Annie

    Hella creepy. Looks like a couple of baby cherubs are massaging his shoulders while another one rips off his loincloth. And it’s supposed to represent him and his sons? Er, can we say yucko.

  • Sede

    It is always amazing to hear how judgmental everyone is. If you don’t like his tattoos simply don’t look at him. For those ignorant fools who think he is implying that he is God due to the tattoo that represents his boys being there for him have no idea of what symbolism in art is; but maybe that is why he will achieve more in his lifetime than the whole community of “moral know it alls” collectively plus their next five generations. if you think he is doing this tattoos for you, get over yourself it is his way of staying true to his beliefs.

    I like the comment’s referencing Beckham’s lack of intelligence, apparently you know nothing about the guy: but I am sure you are an expert on marketing and earn 40k -100k a year vs. well over $50MM a year with endorsements. If you think he is arrogant read the ridiculous list of comments. . . I couldn’t imagine dealing with a public like this on a daily basis.
