David Beckham has another new tattoo!
The ink-crazy soccer great took to Instagram on Wednesday to debut a new ankle tattoo featuring classical male and female figures. The artwork blends nicely with the many previous Renaissance-styled tattoos that cover the athlete's body.
Beckham, 40, thanked his longtime tattoo artist Mark Mahoney at Shamrock Social Club in West Hollywood, and said the tattoo took five hours from start to finish.
The former LA Galaxy star has at least 40 tattoos covering his 6-foot frame, and he's never been shy about showing them off.
The proud family man is famous for his many sentimental tattoos honoring his wife, fashion icon and former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham, and their four kids, sons Brooklyn, 17, Romeo, 13, Cruz, 11, and daughter Harper, 4.
Just last August, Beckham debuted a neck tattoo of the word "Buster," his nickname for Brooklyn, with a tiny heart next to it, on Instagram.
"I've always called Brooklyn (Buster) since the day he was born.... Love you Bust," he wrote.
A month before, he shared photos of a neck tattoo featuring the words "Pretty Lady" with another small heart, a tribute to daughter Harper. That tattoo sits above an earlier one of Harper's name.
Beckham also has ink of one of Harper's precious doodles on his palm.
The athlete's tattoos honoring Victoria are legendary, including one of her name next to a hummingbird, another of her name written in Sanskrit, an image of her done up like a 1950s-era pin-up girl, and the number 99, short for 1999, the year the couple was married.
