David Beckham has always been one to express himself through his personal appearance.

We've seen the former midfielder sport a string of different hairstyles over the years, display questionable outfits, and dabble with the length of his facial hair.

What he has also come to be known for, away from the football pitch, is the number of tattoos which he has sprawled across his body.

But where are they, and what do they represent? Goal takes a look.

Beckham's neck tattoos

We'll start with Beckham's neck tattoos.

Possibly the most famous of the former England captain's body ink is on the back of his neck; a Gothic-style outline of a cross with wings, placed above the name of his son, Romeo.

Below the angel is a filler of clouds, with another angel below that. Beckham also has the words 'Let them hate as long as they fear' written on his arm, a quote synonymous with former Roman emporer Caligula.

Beckham's body tattoos

In 2011, Beckham had a large chest-piece added to his collection. He opted for an image of himself as Jesus, with three cherubs representing his sons, Brooklyn, Romeo, and Cruz.

“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," Beckham previously said. "It means a lot.”

What the Giants should do with Odell Beckham Jr.

  What the Giants should do with Odell Beckham Jr. Odell Beckham Jr.’s four-plus years in New York have been marked as much by highlight catches as they have been by dramatics on and off the field. Sometimes it’s the silliness of messing with a kicking net on the sideline to celebrate touchdowns. Sometimes it’s having a party on a boat with teammates days before a playoff game, which, being the NFL, erupts into a scandal that reinforces the notion that fun is antithetical to winning. Unfortunately Unfortunately now, that wild side has manifested itself in a Snapchat video leaked online that shows Beckham partying in a hotel room while also appearing to have been partaking in weed and cocaine.

Victoria Beckham tatoos

David's love for body art is obviously shared by his wife, Victoria, as the former Spice Girl has a number of tattoos herself.

She has five stars printed across her lower back, a Hebrew piece running down the back of her neck, and various other pieces on her arms and hands.

Victoria has David's initials on her left wrist, as well as another Hebrew phrase which translates as 'Together, forever, eternally'; a mark of her 10 year marriage anniversary with David.

She has the same VIII-V-MMVI tattoo which David has on her other wrist, and the words “De Integro" next to it.

Who is David Beckhams tattooist?

While a few tattooists have worked on Beckham over the years, it is Mark Mahoney of Shamrock Social Club who is the recent go-to man.

His parlour in Los Angeles has seen some of the biggest names in the world walk through its doors, with Johnny Depp, Lady Gaga, and Rihanna all regulars.

“I have a a handful of people who will get tattooed all the time, but not as much as David,” Mahoney told the Daily Star last year. "He is the only one who doesn’t feel pain. He sits amazing and is the ideal customer. He makes for good conversation at the same time. It’s as if he’s at one with the universe when he’s getting tattooed. He is very tough.”

The majority of Beckham's tattoos have been produced by Louis Malloy, however, one of the most highly-regarded tattoo artists in the country. Molloy owns a studio in Manchester and was the artist behind Beckham's early body art.

Other artists who have worked on Beckham's body are a tattoo artist named Gabe, owner of Ace Dragon Tattoo in Hong Kong, and LA's Dr. Woo.
