Don't get me wrong. I would extend my "massive dobber" description to pretty much any top flight football player. Or anyone who appears in hello/OK/heat bleurgh....

It just amuses me why people get so worked up about other people & their tattoos.

Narcissistic is a new one though. Its usually low self esteem that makes us social degenerates mutilate our bodies, right?

I suppose that the difference between tattooed people & non tattooed people is that tattooed people really don't care whether you're tattooed or not.

I'm with Nigel. I actually quite like David Beckham, at least from what I see of him in interviews and his footy skillz.

[QUOTE=eightball;618321]Thought I'd share this with you guys in the hope that some of you might share my disgust.

This is an article in the SPORTS section of the Evening Standard (a free London "news"paper):

NOW BECKS THINKS HE'S THE MESSIAH
With the exception of Tiger Woods, David Beckham is the world's most recognised and celebrated sportsman. He is also increasinhgly one of the most bizzare, as I have said before. It must be a terrible burden to live as he does, in such a condition of acute self-watchfulness.
The man is a true victim of fashion - and of fashion's absurd addiction to ostentatious display and novelty: the next look, the latest haircut. Long ago Beckham turned his smooth, toned, hairless body into a canvas on which assorted tattooists could practise their inky craft. But is fondness for tattoos is becoming more than simply a harmless distraction; it's a kind of sickness, an outer reflection, perhaps, of his inner-conflict and confusion.
A look at me plea! A cry for attention from a man approaching the end of his career!
His latest stunt is to have scarred into his lower torso a representation of a bearded and haloed jesus, from the painting The Man of Sorrows by Matthew R Brooks - and then show it off whenever he can.
Beckham is obviously a narcissist. Now he seems to be developing a Messiah complex as well.
If he does not resemble one already, he is fast becoming a kind of fairground grotesque, with the body of a Thomas Harris villain. How many more tattoos can his body take? At least his face remains clean, for now.



Does this guy not realise that the only inner-conflict and confusion that us tattooed lot suffer from is what to have next and where to put it???

Is that the actual quote, or a misprint? cause;
" is fondness for tattoos is becoming more than"

should it not be "his fondness.."

I had to type it up, so it's my bad typing!

I think people dislike Beckham mainly because he has made a huge success of his life, earns a fortune, has a beautiful wife (allegedly although she don't do it for me) and a happy family.

With regard to their bashing of his tattoos, it is really nothing new, it simply scares people that someone who has been a pretty positive example can also be such a deviant

The following is from Jeremy Clarkson in 2004.

Same stuff is still being recycled.

get half way down that Clarkson article and you see why he doesn't like them - he's bitter. He tried it once with an empty needle and it hurt so he said no. Now he's bitter that he can't get one.

I honestly don't know why people get so worked up about what other people do - if it does not affect you direclty then don't let things bother you. There's always people trying to tell you how to do things.
