Love you tattoo much: David Beckham gave a tantalising glimpse of his new tattoo dedicated to new daughter Harper Seven in an interview for his club LA Galaxy this week

He's famously already got body art dedicated to his wife Victoria and sons Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz - so it was only a matter of time before David Beckham got a new inscription to mark the birth of daughter Harper Seven.

The couple’s first baby girl was born earlier this month and proud father David gave a teasing glimpse of the new inking on his neck this week during a television interview for his club LA Galaxy.

The new design appears to be of curled lettering, suggesting he has had Harper Seven's name inscribed in a fancy font.

The inking sits just above his tattoo of Jesus being carried by three cherubs, which are meant to symbolise sons Brooklyn, 12, Romeo, eight and Cruz, six.

Beckham said at the time: ‘It’s 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.’

The 36-year-old LA Galaxy star is known for his array of tattoos, many of which are dedicated to his family.

As well as the cherubs David already has the names of his three boys and an inscription of Victoria’s name written in Hindi.

He also a six-inch tattoo of Victoria as an angel, accompanied with the words ‘til death do us part.’

David has previously said his tattoos are a way of expressing how he’s feeling, explaining: ‘Most of my tattoos are memories and things that mean things to me.

‘There's not one tattoo that I've got on me that doesn't mean something.’

The last time David went under the needle was in February, when he had the Jesus and the three cherubs drawn into his skin.

David also posted a video on Facebook explaining why he had the tattoo and what it represented.

That tattoo was the handy work of one of LA’s biggest tattoo artists, Mark Mahoney, who has worked on a long list of famous names who include Johnny Depp, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie and it's likely that the Harper Seven inking was courtesy of his hand too.

David is just another in a long line of celebrities who have only good words to say about Mark. He added: ‘He’s not a tattooist who goes on and does TV programmes. He’s low key and stays out of things and is very talented. ‘

Mahoney works in West Hollywood at the Shamrock Social Club on The Sunset Strip and says he prides himself on making his customer’s experiences as memorable as possible.

‘It’s called the Shamrock Social Club, not the Shamrock anti-social Club. People come here to relax and have a good time. People always remember the night they got tattooed. That’s one of the things you always remember in life, so I wanted to make that as memorable and as nice an experience as it ever could be.’

David first posted a picture of Mahoney working on his new tattoo back in December of last year. He Tweeted: ‘I want to let you all in on something. Just had a new tattoo done by the legendary Mark Mahoney.’

He added: ‘I had it done 3 months ago, before I left LA. I don’t plan on having a tattoo, but just sometimes I wake up with an idea or an image of what I would like on me.

‘It’s my way of expressing the way I’m feeling. Most of my tattoos are memories or things that mean a lot to me.

‘It was an 8-hour session which lasted until about 3 o’clock in the morning. I then went back a few weeks later and we did another 4 hours. It’s really is amazing.’

Masterpiece: The tattoo took 12 hours in total

David has also revealed that his new baby daughter is already a stylista in the making.

The Beckhams’ first little girl already has a growing collection of fashionable garments, according to her proud father.

Mother Victoria, 37, has her own fashion range that has proved a big hit with celebrities, and yesterday her footballer father David revealed that baby Harper’s wardrobe was already packed.

Speaking about the two-week old baby girl, the former England captain, 36, said: ‘Everything Victoria’s put on her so far looks amazing, she's got a great wardrobe already.

‘My wife is going to definitely take care of that.’

And even though Victoria had to have a fourth caesarean, Beckham said the couple were still keen for ‘one more’ baby.

Speaking in a post-match interview, the LA Galaxy footballer said the couple would like to complete a five-a-side 'Team Beckham'.

He said: ‘Are we done now or will we see any more in the future? We'd like one more.

‘We've always said we'd love a big family and five was the number. If we're lucky enough, then we hope to have one more.

He added: 'Victoria's doing amazingly well. So we'll see.'

When asked how Harper Seven's older brothers were liking the family's newest addition, Beckham replied: ‘All the boys won't leave her alone, which is amazing.’

Despite currently working away from home, Beckham said he has been Skyping with Harper, adding: ‘I can't wait to get home to see her and my boys and my wife.

‘It's different having a little girl. She's elegant. She sleeps in an elegant position.’

As for her genes, it appears Harper takes after mum Victoria.

'She's a mixture of all three of the boys actually. She's got Victoria's nose thankfully,' Beckham said.
