David Beckham has quite an extensive reported that his mother Victoria previously clarified that Brooklyn was conceived in England — not New York.

Another ode to his father: A “seven” inked on the upper part of Brooklyn’s left wrist. The likely significance? It was David’s jersey number when he played for Manchester United and England.


A budding photographer, Beckham solidified his place in the art world with a book and a tattoo that simply reads, “click.”

We’re safely assuming this is Beckham’s favorite number for one reason: his dad. (See: tattoo #9.)

Celebrity tattoo artist Dr. Woo showed off Beckham’s latest set of ink, which comes int he form of a cherub in the center of his chest. Unsurprisingly, his father also has three cherubs tattooed on his chest as a tribute to his sons. We’re noticing a pattern here…

His recent ink comes with a surprising tribute to the entire family. The minimal design reads “020511” — each number representing the birth years of all his siblings. Romeo James was born in 2002, Cruz in 2005, and Harper Seven in 2011. But one Instagram commenter pointed out another potential meaning behind the tat: David’s birthday is May 2, a reverse of “02” and “05” on Brooklyn’s arm.

As DJ Khaled would say: Beckham is back with yet another one. This time it’s his nickname, “buster,” etched right above his navel.

Keeping it all in the family, Beckham got yet another tattoo in tribute to someone special —the numbers “1975,” the year his dad was born.

After dedicating several tattoos to his father, Beckham decided to make his newest —and largest — addition an homage to his mother, Victoria.
