The Sizzle Query: Tattoos & Ballers
After you have returned from your personal bronzed and buffed David Beckham fantasy (he’s currently in Brazil opening a football school or something, we can’t be arsed to check as we need to continue staring at this picture and sipping our Piña Colada), take a moment to consider David’s new ink. (Left arm).
Freddie Ljungberg, Fabio Cannavaro, Christian Vieri, Fernando Torres, Marco Materazzi – the list of hotties with tatts is endless. That said, the list of design disasters and bad ink is also long and uncute. We know our readers love ballers with a bit of rough just as much as those with designer chic and/or moisturizer, so we’re curious to hear the stance of the Kickette crew on boy-tattoos. Yes or no?
We think David Beckham’s tattoos are quite sexy – except for that nasty ass one on the back of his neck which is best suited for those about to smash a pint glass over someone’s head in the Queen Vic – but dude, you’re running out of skin. At what point do you call time on the ink? We would suggest now.
UPDATE: David’s new tattoo includes a half-naked Victoria Beckham drawing. Er, what?
