David Beckham’s new tattoo depicts him as Jesus, naturally

From David Beckham’s Facebook page: I know some of you like them and some of you aren’t so keen, but I wanted to share my new tattoo with you all on Facebook first…

Thanks!

I suppose only David Beckham could wake up one day and say, “It’s about time I got a tattoo of myself as Jesus.” Well, at least it wasn’t a centaur. In the video found on his page, you’ll hear Beckham explain that it took two sessions with a tattoo artist — one for eight hours, the other for four — to get this done. It depicts, he says, Jesus being borne to Heaven by three cherubs, the latter who are supposed to represent his three sons. “Because,” Beckham said, “They will have to look after me one day.”

A touching sentiment. But where’s Posh Spice as Mary Magdalene?

    I’d hate to think that you’re playin’ loose with the truth again, Rick. So can you link the info that says Beckham portrayed himself as Jesus. Because the video linked here simply says that it is a tattoo of Jesus being carried to heaven by 3 cherubs, and Bekham thought of it because he has 3 boys who may have to take care of him someday.

    Before I go off on you again, I want to make sure that I’ve got the right video…lol.
