“I’ve just had ‘Posh’ done … any of the tattoos I’ve got are of the family,” he told The Sun in a story published Friday. A recent close-up photo of the soccer star’s hand revealed the word “Posh” written in cursive on the lower part of his middle finger, right next to the finger on which he wears a gold wedding band.
The new tattoo is of course a nod to Victoria's pop star past as Posh Spice of the girl band Spice Girls. David may have been inspired by his son Cruz, who got his own “Posh” tattoo on his arm in February to honor his mom, 49. On Sept. 3, the tattoo artist Certified Letter Boy shared black-and-white photos on his Instagram showing the 18-year-old's forearm with the word “Posh” written in cursive.
David, 48, already has a “Victoria” tattoo on his arm as a tribute to his wife, plus the names of the four children he and the fashion designer share: Brooklyn, 24, Romeo, 21, Cruz and Harper, 12.
David has numerous tattoos on his chest, arms and fingers which are visible in the upcoming ad for his new fragrance where he is shown shirtless. On Thursday, the Inter Miami co-owner shared a behind-the-scenes clip on social media of the making of the commercial. "Behind the scenes with @cotyinc...Always fun shooting with @cassblackbird. Exciting things coming with #DavidBeckhamFragrances," he teased.
The new fragrance will join the retired athlete's other scents, which include David Beckham Homme, David Beckham Instinct, Intimately Beckham, and a his-and-hers collection with Victoria.
The doting dad said that on his left shoulder there is a reclining angel with the motto "in the face of adversity." He had Brooklyn's name tattooed on his lower back after his eldest child's 1999 birth. The names Romeo and Cruz bracket a large angel, and Harper's name is tattooed on his neck.
