Carve her name with pride! David Beckham has new inking on his neck in tribute to baby daughter Harper Seven


Love you tattoo much: David Beckham gave a tantalising glimpse of his new tattoo dedicated to new daughter Harper Seven in an interview for his club LA Galaxy this week

He's famously already got body art dedicated to his wife Victoria and sons Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz - so it was only a matter of time before David Beckham got a new inscription to mark the birth of daughter Harper Seven.

The couple’s first baby girl was born earlier this month and proud father David gave a teasing glimpse of the new inking on his neck this week during a television interview for his club LA Galaxy.

The new design appears to be of curled lettering, suggesting he has had Harper Seven's name inscribed in a fancy font.

The inking sits just above his tattoo of Jesus being carried by three cherubs, which are meant to symbolise sons Brooklyn, 12, Romeo, eight and Cruz, six.

Beckham said at the time: ‘It’s Jesus being carried by three cherubs and obviously the cherubs are my boys and so my thought of it is that at some point my boys are going to need to look after me and that’s what they’re doing in the picture. It means a lot.’

The 36-year-old LA Galaxy star is known for his array of tattoos, many of which are dedicated to his family.

As well as the cherubs David already has the names of his three boys and an inscription of Victoria’s name written in Hindi.

He also a six-inch tattoo of Victoria as an angel, accompanied with the words ‘til death do us part.’

David has previously said his tattoos are a way of expressing how he’s feeling, explaining: ‘Most of my tattoos are memories and things that mean things to me.
‘There's not one tattoo that I've got on me that doesn't mean something.’

The last time David went under the needle was in February, when he had the Jesus and the three cherubs drawn into his skin.

David also posted a video on Facebook explaining why he had the tattoo and what it represented

That tattoo was the handy work of one of LA’s biggest tattoo artists, Mark Mahoney, who has worked on a long list of famous names who include Johnny Depp, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie and it's likely that the Harper Seven inking was courtesy of his hand too.

Masterpiece: The tattoo took 12 hours in total
