LONDON - Soccer ace David Beckham has got a new tattoo that depicts Jesus being carried by three angels, which he says stand for his sons.
The British star, who got the tattoo made on the left side of his chest, underwent two sessions over 12 hours to get the image, which includes three cherubs representing his sons Brooklyn, 11, Romeo, eight and Cruz, six.
“It is 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,” femalefirst.co.uk quoted him as saying.
Beckham already has a number of body art pieces, including a topless depiction of his wife Victoria and an inscription of her name in Hindi language.
He says he never plans to get the artwork done but often wakes up inspired with an idea.
“I had it done before I left Los Angeles. I don’t plan on having a tattoo, just sometimes I wake up and I have an idea of an image I’d like on me. It’s just something that I’ve found kind of expresses how I feel or thoughts I have or memories. There’s not one tattoo I’ve got on me that doesn’t mean something,” said Beckham.
