David Beckham has revealed that his sons want to follow his lead by getting tattoos - but he has urged them not to.
The ex-England football star - who has full sleeves of artwork among his vast collection - has told the youngsters they should dare to be different by shunning the ink.
In an interview for ITV chat series The Jonathan Ross Show to be broadcast tomorrow, father-of-four Beckham said his boys had already expressed an interest.
"They've already said they're having tattoos done. And I said, 'Well, be different, don't have any tattoos'," Beckham explained.
"And they said 'No, we're going to have one. We're going to have Mum and Dad.' So I can't really say no to that."
In the interview, he told Ross that he was not always so proud of some of his looks over the years. He was not fond of the plaits he once had, photographs of which were dusted down last week following the death of Nelson Mandela.
He recalled: "I think I was in France at the time, I'd had a glass of wine or two. It was really painful to have done. I had it done at the wrong time as well, because it was when England were in South Africa and we ended up visiting Nelson Mandela, I ended up going with cornrows, and I really regretted having that done."
Meanwhile, the footballer also admitted he reduced his son Romeo to tears after giving a penalty against him while refereeing a children's match.
Beckham, who had his own occasional run-ins with match officials during his playing career, had to step in during a recent training match to penalise his own 11-year-old after he fouled an opponent.
He said: "I had ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)
Actress and pin-up girl Farrah Fawcett was the star of an auction of celebrity memorabilia in Dallas on Thursday as a shiny red swimsuit she wore for a magazine shoot and 64 other personal items brought in nearly $200,000 (£122,399).
Sharing top billing with Fawcett was Gene Kelly and the water-soaked suit he wore in the 1952 movie musical "Singin' in the Rain" as he danced in a deluge. The gray-wool suit went for $106,250 in the auction, Heritage Auctions said.
The suit belonged to a retired postal worker in California, who bought it at an MGM studio auction for $10 in 1970. It was bought at auction by Planet Hollywood, operator of restaurants worldwide and a hotel-casino in Las Vegas.
The red vinyl swimsuit, which Fawcett wore for a 1995 photo spread in Esquire magazine, sold for $4,062.50.
Fawcett's 1980 passport sold for $17,500, and a script from her 1984 TV film "The Burning Bed" sold for $8,750. A People's Choice Award won by the Texas-born actress went for $20,625.
"The intense competition for Farrah's items in this auction speaks to how popular she continues to be with collectors," said Margaret Barrett, director of entertainment and music auctions for Heritage. Fawcett died of cancer in 2009 at age 62.
Meanwhile, a portrait of Fawcett painted by Andy Warhol that could be worth millions of dollars is at the centre of a civil trial in Los Angeles over its ownership.
The University of Texas, to which the actress donated all her artwork before her death, is suing Fawcett's former partner, actor Ryan O'Neal, to recover the portrait. The actor said he took it from Fawcett's Los Angeles condominium after her death because she was keeping it for him.
The university sued O'Neal ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

The divorce of US rock star Jack White and British model and singer Karen Elson has been finalised.
Court records show the agreement was signed by a judge on November 26.
It names Elson as the primary residential parent for the couple's two children and White will get around 150 days a year with them.
White - one half of The White Stripes until the group broke up in 2011 - also retained rights to all his musical businesses, including The White Stripes, The Raconteurs, Dead Weather and his record label, Third Man Records.
Elson married White in 2005 in Nashville, but she filed for divorce last year.
Although the separation started off amicably, earlier this year Elson filed for a restraining order, accusing White of threatening her and saying she feared for her safety.
White denied the accusations.

Five months after Glee star Cory Monteith died, his co-star girlfriend Lea Michele has spoken about how she is dealing with the loss.
The actress appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show where she described how hard it is being without him but that she knows he would want her to keep moving forward.
The 27-year-old was dating Monteith, 31, when he died in a hotel room in Vancouver on July 13.
"I'm still trying to figure out all of this. It's been only a few months, but my mom has experienced a lot of loss in her life and she told me at one point she said there is an empowerment that comes with grief, at some point you find it," she said.
"It's very hard but you will find it and I think at a certain point you can choose to sort of fall from this or you can choose to rise.
"And that's what I'm just trying to do my best for him because I know that that's what he would have wanted and to just do my best and to you know, hopefully make something positive for where I go in the rest of my life."
Monteith himself was interviewed by DeGeneres where he revealed his relationship with Michele for the first time.
Michele said one of her favourite memories is when he came home from that interview and told her how proud he was to have told the world they were a couple.
A post-mortem examination showed Monteith died of a toxic combination of heroin and alcohol.
A tribute episode of Glee which celebrated the life of Monteith's character, Finn Hudson, was broadcast in October.
Sandra Bullock has entered talks for George Clooney's Our Brand Is Crisis.

Clooney will produce the movie under his Smokehouse banner.
It was first mentioned as the company's next project in 2011, but Argo and the upcoming Monuments Men have following since that announcement.
The Men Who Stare at Goats' Peter Straughan has written the Our Brand Is Crisis script.
Bullock's upcoming projects include The Minions.
Taye Diggs and Idina Menzel have announced their separation.
The musical theatre couple confirmed via People that they have decided to split after 10 years of marriage.
"Idina Menzel and Taye Diggs have jointly decided to separate at this time," their representative said.
"Their primary focus and concern is for their son. We ask that you respect their privacy during this time."
Diggs and Menzel met when appearing in the original production of Broadway musical Rent in the mid-1990s.
They later married in 2003 and had a son named Walker in 2009.
Earlier this year, Menzel said of her marriage to Diggs: "We work at it. I'm not going to glamorise it or glorify it - we go through tough times like everybody else, but we love each other very much.
"We try not to be away from each other for more than two weeks at a time, and we try to find new ways to communicate."
