London:

Footballer David Beckham has added another tattoo, a black and white image of Jesus Christ, to his huge collection of body art.

Beckham, 34, already has 17 tattoos on his body but decided to get the latest one to pay a tribute to his grandfather Joe West, who died recently. The footballer was very close to his grandfather.

The new image, drawn on Beckham's lower right abdomen, is based on a painting called 'The Man Of Sorrows' by Catholic artist Matthew R Brooks, reports said.

The AC Milan striker revealed his latest piece of body art at the weekend when Beckham removed his shirt in triumph following his team's 3-0 victory over Juventus.

The former Manchester United star's body art include an angel with the text 'In the face of adversity', a crucifix on the back of his neck, just above a guardian angel, arms fully covered with tattoos and all of his son's names have been added to his back.
