Football heartthrob David Beckham is a huge fan of body art and his latest addition, an image of Jesus and angels on his chest, took a painful 12 hours to complete.

The tattoo is of Jesus being lifted by three cherubs, and the 35-year-old says that it symbolises himself and his three sons Brooklyn, 11, Romeo, 8, and Cruz, 6.

"It's Jesus being carried by three cherubs and obviously the cherubs are my boys and so my thought of it is that at some point my boys are going to need to look after me and that's what they're doing in the picture. It means a lot," said Beckham in a video posted on Facebook.

The tattoo is the handy work of one of Los Angeles' biggest tattoo artists, Mark Mahoney, who has worked on a long list of famous names including Johnny Depp, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.

"It was an 8-hour session which lasted until about 3 o'clock in the morning. I then went back a few weeks later and we did another 4 hours. It's really is amazing," said Beckham.
