David Beckham's tattoo artist said that the footballer neglected his advice to think twice before having inkings done on highly visible parts of his body.
Louis Malloy says that for two years, he tried to talk the father of four out of some of his body art because he doesn't like etching designs on necks or hands.
"I spent two years trying to get David not to get the neck one.
"He'll even tell you himself. I don't like to do them on the neck, face or hands normally, but let's face it, he's not going to find himself out of a job because of it, is he?" Contactmusic quoted Louis as telling Daily Star newspaper.
Louis believes the soccer star is happy to overlook his advice.
"He must like it because he never had it removed," he added.
The Los Angeles Galaxy player's most recent tattoo was the world 'love' written on his left hand.
David has over 20 tattoos, including the name of Harper etched in script along his left collarbone and a design of Jesus being carried by three cherubs, which is dedicated to his three boys.
