Victoria Beckham got David a tattoo voucher for his 38th birthday.
Although the fashion designer doesn't think her husband - who already has 32 tattoos across his body - needs another inking, she was happy to spoil the retired soccer star who celebrated his birthday on May 2.
Victoria is quoted as saying: ''Not that he needs another tattoo. I also bought him some Ralph Lauren T-shirts, which he loves.''
Among David's many tattoos are tributes to his four children - sons Brooklyn, 14, Romeo, 10, Cruz, eight, and two-year-old daughter Harper - and Victoria's name written in Hindi script along his forearm.
The former Los Angeles Galaxy player has the name of Harper etched in script along his left collarbone and a design of Jesus being carried by three cherubs, which is dedicated to his three boys.
He has Brooklyn's name running across his lower back, Romeo on the base of his neck and Cruz across the middle of his back underneath an image of a guardian angel.
David has admitted the inkings that relate to his four kids are the ones that mean the most to him.
He recently said: ''My favourites are the ones about my children.''
