Ink-loving David Beckham unveils the intriguing latest addition to his huge collection of tattoos

It’s less than a fortnight since he had his last tattoo done but David Beckham has already gone and added ANOTHER inking to his vast collection.

Whilst the meaning of his ‘Pretty Lady’ design from last month was obviously intended for daughter Harper though (cute!), we’re less certain of the sentiment behind this one…

Becks unveiled the image of an eagle spreading its wings last night and mysteriously wrote: ‘Just another… RISE ABOVE @shamrocksocialclub’

Hmmm, intriguing! Could it mean that David knows how to rise above criticism? Or does it refer to the sportsman’s plans to start his own Major League Soccer franchise in America and his hopes that they’ll rise to the top?

Or maybe he just really likes eagles?

Whatever the true meaning of the tat is, David’s fans certainly seem to approve of it and many posted positive comments on Instagram.

‘Sick tattoo bro!!!’ one wrote, whilst another added: ‘I love it! I think you look even more gorgeous with tattoos!! x x x’

It was initially uncertain exactly where the inking was on David’s already heavily-tattooed body, though it’s become clear that it’s under his left armpit as pictures of him at the gym in Los Angeles earlier this week show the bird’s wings peeking out from under his vest top.

The former footballer now appears to have more than 40 etchings and has previously said how they are all very special to him.

‘I don’t regret any of them,’ David told CNN back in 2013, when his collection stood at a, um, measly 32.

‘They all have a meaning. I think that’s what’s important about tattoos, if they have a meaning you’ll never regret them.

‘My favourites are my children’s names.’

Awww! Becks does indeed love to pay tribute to his four kids Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and Harper with his skin ink and has additionally had designs done honouring his wife Victoria.

As well as having his Harper ‘Pretty Lady’ etching last month, just a few days earlier David had the number ’99’ tattooed onto his little finger. He admitted that the year 1999 brought back lovely memories for him, as it was when he married Victoria, became a dad for the first time AND won three titles with Manchester United.

Something tells us that his latest addition to the collection might not be the last…
