Brooklyn Beckham Has 70 Tattoos Dedicated To His Wife Of Five Months Nicola Peltz
As Brooklyn Beckham and Nicola Peltz continue to make their high society debut as Mr. & Mrs. Wifey Peltz Beckham, the pressure is mounting for Brooklyn to distinguish himself as an adult man with a distinct personality who knows his business and what he’s about. And since Nicola’s way ahead of him in this regard, he’s got a lot of catching up to do. Brooklyn has settled on Wife Guy for his personality and he’s gonna keep “chef” as his occupation. And what he’s all about is getting tattoos that prove both. As we’ve learned in his recent Variety interview, Brooklyn is a married, tattooed man who took his pandemic hobby of cooking and turned it into an empire. An empire so vast that at just 23, Brooklyn was able to purchase a $1.2 million McLaren P1 with the proceeds from just one poorly-edited 30 second cooking video that features a closeup of a pair of disambiguated hands risking it all by ripping apart a piece of fried fish as a volcano of hot grease comes gushing out, threatening to obliterate the word “married,” which Brooklyn recently got tattooed onto his hand. Brooklyn’s new ink is just one of 70 tattoos Brooklyn has on his body dedicated to his blushing bride. I mean, I’d be mortified too if I were her.
Nobody knows better than Brooklyn that love hurts. In all, he’s got 100 tattoos, though you wouldn’t know from looking at him. Unlike a professional love ‘em and leave ‘em type like Pete Davidson, whose tattoo garden is about as unhinged and random as Willy Wonka’s hothouse of horrors, Brooklyn’s tattoos have a light hand behind them. There are wispy flourishes of devotion meant to thrill and delight his lady love. As part of their societal debut, Brooklyn and Nicola attended Variety’s Power of Young Hollywood event where he gave a red carpet interview about his wife and career. According to USA Today:
For some people, showing love means cooking homemade meals.
This is also true for Beckham, who says he loves to make his wife Nicola Peltz’s favorite food, angel hair pasta.
But another way the chef shows his affection is by surprising his wife of five months with new ink. Speaking to USA TODAY on the red carpet, Beckham estimated that, of the 100 tattoos on his body, about 70 are dedicated to his wife.
These include his wife’s name, located on his neck, as well as the word “married” on the side of this left hand.
“I kind of was just like, ‘Oh, we’re married, why not?’ ” Beckham said of the inspiration for his “married” tat. “It wasn’t a thing I thought about for months. I got married five months ago, why not?”
When Beckham surprised his wife with the new ink, he said she “got tears in her eyes.”
“She always cries when I get her another tattoo,” he said. “I always love to surprise her with new ink.”
If he was married to anyone other than Nicola I’d question the true origin of her tears, but given what we know about these two, this checks out. One does not allow their affianced to do this to themselves then proceed with the nuptials as planned if one is not personally behind it. In this case, literally.
I’m pretty sure in his head he’s a badass chef like Carmy from The Bear (which Brooklyn has not seen, per Variety) only instead of having to sweat and work hard, he’s got a hot billionaire wife and several jet skis. But I suspect that deep down inside, Brooklyn is just a simple mama’s boy who loves nothing more than to stand at his mother’s side watching her do her makeup in the hopes that she will affectionately reach down to tousle his hair and give him a distracted kiss on his cheek, leaving behind a bright red tattoo of her lips as proof he was loved, if only for a moment, before she leaves him behind. It’s kind of sweet actually.
