Beckham already has 40 inkings on his body and admits he still wants to add to more artwork because it makes him happy, reported Female First.

"The tattoos are a way of me expressing deeper feelings, about the things I care about and love. Am I done? Probably not.(I) think Victoria’s given up on telling me to stop now.

She used to. She used to say, ‘Do you have to?’ But she knows it makes me happy," the 40-year-old former Manchester United star said. Known for his his sense of style, Beckham said he enjoyed dressing up and "looking smart" from a young age.

The nice life
"Even as a kid, seven or eight years old, I liked to wear nice shoes. I liked to wear a nice suit my mum or dad bought me. It wouldn’t have been expensive, but I always liked to dress up. I
liked to look smart.

"Later, I liked having the nice cars... And luckily I was able to have it pretty young. Every penny that I earned went into something nice," he said.
