Prepare to have your heart melted when you see what David Beckham has done for Harper

It’s fair to say that David Beckham has something of a tattoo addiction. The former footballer is covered in inkings and has previously spoken of how they’re all very meaningful.

So we were quite taken aback to see that David, 40, appeared to have added a slightly less, erm, poignant design to his collection in the form of a Minion.

Yes, a Minion. As in those little yellow creatures in goggles and overalls, made famous by the Despicable Me movies.

Wife Victoria unveiled her man’s latest body art in a picture posted on Instagram this morning and revealed that the couple’s young daughter Harper, nearly 4, chose the image. Cute!

‘Harper has just added to Daddie’s tattoo collection x happy Tuesday in the sunshine! X vb,’ Victoria, 41, captioned the shot.

The fashion designer’s followers were soon cooing over the photo, with one commenting: ‘Great choice, harper’

Another wrote: ‘Omg! Hahhaha i love him for that’

Turns out that David won’t have to model the Minion for long as his rep confirmed that it’s just a transfer. But who knows, maybe if he likes it enough he’ll consider getting it inked for real!

We wouldn’t bet against the dad-of-one having to take Harper to the cinema to see the new Minions spin-off movie either!

David has tattoos all over his chest, back and neck and they’ve always been very special to him. Back in 2013 the retired sportsman revealed that he has more than 32 inkings and is most proud of the ones that represent his family.

‘My favourites are my children’s names,’ he told CNN. The doting dad also confessed that he doesn’t regret any of his extensive collection.

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

Hmmm, probably for the best that that Minion wasn’t real then…
