(Newser) – David Beckham got himself a new tattoo for Christmas—a biblical proverb written in Hebrew—despite objections from wife Victoria, who thinks he's sporting enough ink already, the Sun reports. “She likes his tatts but wants a bit of his skin to be left,” a source said of the former Spice Girl.

“She is worried he is hooked, and she doesn’t know where it will all end,” the source continued. “He is a very healthy bloke. He doesn’t smoke, barely drinks, and looks after his body very carefully. But his addiction is tattoos.” The latest addition, rendered on his left arm by his regular tattooist in London, reads: "My son, do not forget my teaching but keep my commands in your heart."
