David Beckham splashed out on a new tattoo during LA Galaxy’s recent tour of the Far East and has been taking the opportunity to flash it around for the cameras. The top-of-the-range tat was done using a technique which is apparently not available outside Hong Kong and appears to have been brushed on to the skin.
Becks’s latest tattoo is a Chinese proverb running from his nipple to his groin (that’s not the proverb, by the way) which reads: “Death and life have determined appointments. Riches and honour depend upon heaven.” Well, he has spent most of his life in tattoo parlour appointments so there is no reason why that would change in death. Riches and honour depend on whether Adidas sponsorship money and 99 England caps are allowed in heaven.
