Everyone’s favorite soccer stud just showed off his new tattoo of wife Victoria yesterday. David Beckham’s 11th tattoo is of a Brigitte Bardot-esque photo that Posh posed for in Pop magazine a while back. Beckham actually keeps a personal tattoo artist around incase the mood ever strikes. The Mirror puts the price tag of the tat at about $5,000. Not too shabby. Victoria was seen sporting (poshing?) a bandage recently, so the could have gone matching again.
Why do we mention this? Slow news day? Maybe. But we haven’t covered soccer’s first family for a while. The only thing they’ve really done lately was Posh having her breast implants removed to make her more agile onstage.
What a nice present, though. Getting a picture of another person pressed into ink on your body is a pretty big gesture. But who is it really a present for? If a lady gets cosmetic surgery is it for her or her fella? And if he pays for her to get a tat of his initials, who is the present for? This is very confusing, tattoos of as presents. And permanent. Getting someone tattooed on your body may be a bigger commitment than getting married. It’s probably somewhere between having a kid and getting married on the commitment scale. Maybe this new age of laser treatment has made the tattoo a little less permanent. But if you don’t have the time or patience to get a tat removed you have to either suck it up or only date people with the same name.
