London - David Beckham has revealed his brand new chest tattoo - symbolising himself as Jesus.

The intricate design shows the son of God being carried by three tiny cherubs.

According to The Sun website, Beckham says it represents how his three sons - Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz - will support him one day.

He said: "Obviously the cherubs are boys so my thought behind it is that at some point my boys are going to need to look after me and that's what they're doing in the picture. Everything has a meaning."

England legend Beckham, 35, revealed the intricate design to the world via his official Facebook page.

Legendary US inker Mark Mahoney carried out the work, which took 12 hours to complete in two sittings.
 
Fans have been waiting since December to see the final design, when he posted a shot of it getting underway.

Beckham now has at least 19 tattoos across his body, including extensive works on his arms, chest and back.
