London: Soccer ace David Beckham has got a new tattoo - the word "love" on his left hand.

Beckham, 36, has reportedly paid an apparent tribute to his wife Victoria and four children, sons Brooklyn, 12, Romeo, nine, Cruz, six, and 13-week-old daughter Harper with his new tattoo, a website reported.

"You may have seen that I've got a new tattoo, hope you like it...," Beckham posted on Twitter.

The singer-turned-fashion designer Victoria also posted a picture of her husband's new tattoo on her Twitter page showing baby Harper grabbing his index finger.

"Harper loves Daddy's new tattoo of love," she said.
