David Beckham, the much loved British soccer celebrity, has a couple of new interests since he retired. The 38-year-old just got his 33rd, yes – 33rd, tattoo!
The latest body art addition to adorn the soccer legend is a chest tattoo, which is a little hard to make out but apparently is a portrait of Jesus looking like Beckham being lifted from a tomb by three cherubs. He proudly showed off his new tattoo on Malibu beach on Thursday along with his kids. The paparazzi were out in force to catch a glimpse and perhaps the odd snap of David Beckham.
The Daily Mail in Britain reports that that Beckham’s new chest tattoo is meant to represent his three boys, Brooklyn, aged 14; Romeo, aged 11; and Cruz, aged 8. The Mail also reported that daughter, Harper, aged 2, isn’t feature in the scene but won’t be too dismayed as she does have her name scrawled in body art on David’s left side.
Apparently the new tattoo was a gift from his wife, Victoria Beckham, who got him a voucher in May for his birthday. Beckham was grinning from ear to ear as he boogie boarded on the beach with his sons, taking pictures of them in the ocean.
As well as the new tattoo, Beckham seems to want to keep busy since his official retirement from soccer. It was recently reported that he invested in a Mediterranean-themed restaurant, which will be opened on September 16 in London by Chef Gordon Ramsey.
However, It now seems that Beckham decided not to invest in the new Ramsey venture, instead opting to open a pie-and-mash cafe in London as part of a worldwide chain.
Pie-and-mash is a traditional British dish which is comprised of mashed potatoes, a meat pie of some description, and a special gravy called “liquor.”
The Sun newspaper spoke to a personal friend of Beckham’s: “David was just looking around Gordon’s new restaurant and it’s been mis-interpreted that he was investing in the place. There was an option for David to invest early on but he wanted to stick to opening somewhere that would sell his own favorite grub.”
David Beckham and Gordon Ramsey registered the name “PM,” which stands for pie & mash back in 2010. The new chain will hopefully be in operation before the end of the year.
