It seems just about anything will tick Posh Spice off, and particularly when it comes to her hubby David Beckham. And this time, Victoria Beckham is furious with husband David for getting another tattoo. But why?

The former Spice Girl had apparently told the soccer superstar to stop adding body art to his already heavily-inked frame, but he couldn’t resist squeezing another onto his left arm. A friend close to the couple tries to explain Victoria’s anger:

“Victoria doesn’t think David should have anymore tattoos and tried to stop him having another. She likes them but wants a bit of his skin to be left, but David went ahead with it anyway.”

The tattoo - which was created by his regular artist Louis Malloy - is a biblical proverb written in Hebrew which reads: “My son, do not forget my teaching but keep my commands in your heart.” It accompanies another Hebrew phrase on the same arm which translates: “I am my beloved and my beloved is mine”. Victoria has the same tattoo.

David, 33, is known for his obsession with tattoos and his upper body is covered in etchings. He has Victoria’s name in Hindi, the number seven - his shirt number for Manchester United and England - in Roman numerals, a guardian angel across his back and a Michelangelo angel on his right arm. Victoria, 34, is said to be worried her husband is addicted and won’t be able to stop adding tattoos to his already impressive collection.

The source added to Britain’s The Sun newspaper: “She is worried he is hooked and she doesn’t know where it will all end. He is a very healthy guy. He doesn’t smoke, barely drinks and looks after his body very carefully. But his outside is far from clean.”
