Brooklyn Beckham Is Following In His Father's Footsteps With His Latest Tattoo

In 1999, international soccer player David Beckham went under the needle for his first tattoo. He got his son's name, Brooklyn, written in classic Gothic script on his lower back to commemorate his birth.

Eighteen years later, Brooklyn, paid homage to his famous father by getting his arm inked with an illustration of a Native American chief, which is an exact replica of David's torso tattoo.

“Honoured to have my first tattoo done by dads friend Mark Mahoney,” Brooklyn wrote on Instagram.

Taking a page out his father's book, Brooklyn followed up his "controversial" tattoo with six more, including the "Made in England" in old type font that confused the internet.

According to some internet users, who seem to know Brooklyn’s origin story better than he himself, the tattoo is wrong because although he was brought up in England, he was “made” in New York, which inspired his name.

Turns out, they were wrong. Brooklyn's mother, former Spice Girl-turned-fashion designer, Victoria Beckham said she "became pregnant in Denmark."

"We were on tour with Spice Girls and had come to Copenhagen,” Victoria said in an interview. "David visited me and yes ... so it happened," she added.

However, none of the hoopla surrounding Brooklyn's body art seems to phase him. The teen continued to add to his collection, and he may soon catch up to his dad's record of 40 tattoos.

Brooklyn just got one of the most painful tattoos on his sternum, and it is something you'd never expect.

The aspiring photographer recently got an image of cupid and his bow etched on his chest right on his heart by celebrity tattoo artist Dr. Woo. The placement of the artwork emulates his father's large chest tattoo.

The cherub stands for love and desire, but Brooklyn did not reveal what the inspiration behind the tattoo is. Some fans are speculating that he got the ink in honor of his girlfriend, actress Chloe Grace Moretz.

In addition to his tattoos mentioned so far, Brooklyn also has a few more located all over his body, including the words "Mama's Boy" on his chest and "Seven," which is his dad's jersey number and sister's middle name, on the back of his wrist.
