Default Beckham's tattoos cost 10 grand...

...according to the Sunday Mirror, anyway.

This is not meant as a slight on Louis Molloy's work, but there's no way his tattoos cost 10 grand.

Yet another example of bad journalism when it involves tattoos.

TAT'S MEAN BECKS

May 8 2005

He bans his tattooist from £500,000 deal

EXCLUSIVE By BEN TODD Showbiz Editor

DAVID Beckham’s tattooist has really got the needle with him – after the soccer star banned him from signing a £500,000 deal to sell his designs in the Far East.

Louis Molloy was delighted when he was approached by Japanese businessmen wanting to buy the rights to 10 designs he has tattooed on the England captain over five-and-a-half years.

They had plans to use the famous angel on his back for a range of clothing and other merchandise.

But when Louis, 41, who runs the Middleton Tattoo Studio in Manchester, contacted Beckham’s aides he was told legal action would be taken.

He said: “I was called by three businessmen. They were talking about a six-figure sum. But when I got in touch with David’s management people I was told that they would sue. I couldn’t go on with the deal.” Louis gave Beckham his tattoos – which feature Latin phrases and a Hindu symbol – after he was recommended by the midfielder’s then Manchester United colleague Roy Keane. All the tattoos were paid for only at the going rate, estimated at a total of around £10,000.

Louis said: “David’s people offered me some money to buy the copyright of the angel design, but it was derisory.

“I have mentioned it to David when he’s been here but he just shrugs it off.”
