David Beckham

Symbolically overreaching? Yes. Nonetheless gorgeous artwork by Mark Mahoney? Definitely.

In the celebrity world, where "rich and famous" and "family man" don't often go together, soccer star David Beckham is a refreshing anomaly. He's hailed as one of the best footballers on the planet, having played for four celebrated teams in four countries: England's Manchester United, Italy's AC Milan, Real Madrid of Spain, and the Los Angeles Galaxy in the U.S.

David is also one-half of an A-list celebrity marriage. His wife Victoria, the former Posh Spice of Spice Girls fame, is now a fashion designer. They've been married since 1998, and are so respectable that they attended Prince William and Kate Middleton's royal wedding in April 2011.

He's also a devoted father of three boys (and by the time you read this, possibly one daughter as well). He even had his three boys tattooed on his chest -- in a way. The tattoo is a stunning rendering of three cherubs lifting Jesus from the tomb done by artist Mark Mahoney. David says it represents how his sons will care for him in his old age. A touching thought. But even if you are a world-class sports figure and caring father, comparing yourself to someone whom many people consider the savior of the world is overreaching, to say the least.

Our next entry proves the rhyme "I scream, you scream we all scream for ice cream." Especially when it's being emblazoned into your skin.
