Victoria Beckham left fans “fascinated” after they noticed she removed her wrist tattoo in tribute to husband David Beckham in a beauty video.
The fashion designer, 48, took to Instagram last week to give fans a glimpse of the new Bitten lip tint, Je t’aime, from her range and as the former Spice Girl took a sample of the makeup on her arm , her body art was noticeably lacking.
The discoloration on her wrists – which she had done to celebrate milestones with husband David – has progressively faded in recent years after she decided to undergo laser surgery to have it removed.

But some of her social media followers were stunned, with one asking: “Why did you have your tattoo removed Victoria? Just fascinated x.’
Posh, who launched her successful fashion label in 2008, is believed to have opted for laser resurfacing after fears the tattoos of an influential businesswoman weren’t appropriate.
Next to the Roman numerals VIII-V-MMVI representing May 8, 2006—the date she and David renewed their wedding vows—her right wrist bore the Latin phrase “De Integro,” which translates to “from the front.”

This is said to have marked her new start with husband and family in the United States after the former England captain left for club LA Galaxy in 2007.
On her left wrist, she also had her husband’s initials, DB, and the words “Together, forever, ever” written in Hebrew – chosen to celebrate their tenth wedding anniversary.
However, the tattoos were no longer visible in Victoria’s latest beauty video.

Another Hebrew tattoo on her neck once read, “Ani l’dodi li va’ani lo haro’eh bashoshanim,” meaning “I am my beloved and my beloved is mine.” Her husband has a matching design on his arm.
She also had five stars on her lower back, one for herself, her husband and each of the couple’s three sons – Brooklyn, 23, Romeo, 20, and Cruz, 17. The Beckhams also now have a daughter, Harper, 11, born in 2011.
Laser tattoo removal uses beams of colored light to break down the ink into tiny fragments, which can then be absorbed into the bloodstream and excreted through the liver and digestive system. Private clinics charge around £150 per session for a small tattoo and up to £800 for a larger one.
Large tattoos typically require eight to ten sessions.

The procedure can cause temporary discomfort, blistering, and redness, and the tattoo almost never goes away completely. Figures show that almost a fifth of Britons have at least one tattoo.
It comes after Victoria’s daughter-in-law Nicola Peltz-Beckham sensationally claimed the former pop star hid her for days after offering to design her wedding dress.
The move reportedly dashed the bride’s plans, as Victoria said her studio couldn’t actually make the dress.
Tension: It comes as insiders claim Nicola Peltz is spreading a “false narrative” about mother-in-law Victoria Beckham being “confused” about why she “keeps stoking rumors of a feud”.
Insiders have said the 27-year-old model is promoting a “false narrative” which leaves Victoria “confused” as to why she continues to “foment rumors of a feud” rather than closing it down.
A source told The Sun: “Honestly, the most interesting thing about Nicola is that she married into the Beckham clan.
“David and Victoria have both reached out to her to try and make peace and find a way to get along.
“David and Victoria would love to spend more time with their son and his wife and have the opportunity to welcome them into the herd, especially given that Brooklyn practically lives with his in-laws.”
Nicola wore a stunning couture dress by Valentino instead on her special day with Brooklyn in April, but she claims the original plan was for her to wear Victoria’s custom-made dress.
The model-actress said she was thrilled at the prospect of wearing a Victoria-designed dress, but hadn’t heard from the former Spice Girl, 48, for days before calling to say she wasn’t wearing the dress would make her big day.
The devastating news left Nicola stumped as her stylist Leslie Fremar and mother Claudia also wanted to join the design dream team. The plan was shot down in a phone call between Victoria and Nicola’s mother.

In a bombshell interview with Grazia USA, she revealed: “We connected to start designing the dress and then a few days went by and I didn’t hear anything. Victoria called my mother and said her studio couldn’t make it.
Doting husband Brooklyn clarified his position amid the family feud, telling the publication that Nicola is his “number one priority” and that they are “100 percent back to back.”
Nicola, the daughter of New York billionaire Nelson Peltz, tried to set the record straight when she explained: “I was planning to wear Victoria’s wedding dress and I was really so excited to be able to wear a design that my future mother-in-law created .
“I thought it was so beautiful and such a beautiful story.”
Following Victoria’s revelations that she couldn’t make her daughter-in-law’s dress, Nicola recalled, “So I spoke to my mum and Leslie and said, ‘Well unfortunately that can’t happen. What’s the next step?’
“I’ve been a fan of Valentino and her couture for so long. I was really lucky to be able to travel there [the atelier] to try on the dress. That really happened.”
