Victoria Beckham mum-shamed over son Brooklyn's tattoos

Ah, the internet. A place where people gather to share information, swap stories, and judge celebrities for everything they do — even when it is out of their control.

Victoria Beckham shared a photo of her son, Brooklyn, as he drove his mother to her destination. Brooklyn appears shirtless in the snap, and his many tattoos are on full display.


However, critics have taken it upon themselves to offer some advice to the former Spice Girl. Many fans are writing to let her know that they feel Brooklyn has too many tattoos, even asking the fashionista: “Did you approve of those?”

Brooklyn is 19, which means he is legally allowed to tattoo whatever he wants on his body. And one tattoo is even dedicated to his loving “Mum.”


Nevertheless, jabs from the haters include, “Don’t have too many tattoos Brooklyn you’re stuck with em when they’re no longer fashionable,” and “Why kids does parents mistakes ? Horrible tattoo. Looking very old fashion.” Perhaps this comment was trying to address the fact that Brooklyn’s father, David Beckham, has a sea of tattoos himself.

Victoria Beckham has not always been so supportive of her son’s body art. It was his father who took Brooklyn to get his first tattoo, when he was 18, suggesting that their son would have headed to the tattoo parlor whether not his parents had given their support.

Victoria Beckham herself has regretted her tattoos and has undergone laser removal to remove them, as Allure reported last year.
