Los Angeles - David Beckham has huge new ankle tattoo.

The 40-year-old retired soccer star already has around 40 inkings on his body and he has now unveiled his latest design, which took five hours to complete during a visit to the Shamrock Social Club in Hollywood.

He uploaded a photo of his etching, which depicts two classical figures running with cloth floating behind them, to his 21.1 million Instagram followers.

Alongside the image, he wrote: "Great new piece from Mark Mahoney at shamrock ... Always nice to sit and listen to marks conversation for 5 hours whilst watching him work ... True artist @shamrocksocialclub (sic)"

David has multiple tattoos that show his devotion to his family; children, Brooklyn, 17, Romeo, 13, Cruz, 11, and Harper, four, and wife Victoria Beckham.

In honour of daughter Harper he has the words "Pretty Lady" and a rose inked onto his skin. Recently, David had "99'" inscribed onto the little finger of his right hand to commemorate the year of his wedding to Victoria.

It was 1999 when he first went under the knife to get a permanent tribute to his son Brooklyn, who was born the same year.

Speaking previously about his tattoo obsession, he said: "The tattoos are a way of me expressing deeper feelings, about the things I care about and love. Am I done? Probably not.

"[I] think Victoria's given up on telling me to stop now. She used to. She used to say, 'Do you have to?' But she knows it makes me happy."
