The 'Boyfriend' hitmaker posted a picture of the tattoo to his Instagram account but later decided to take it down, although a Facebook account - which appears to belong to Banksy himself - had reposted the image with the caption "controversial" beforehand.

A source said: "Having dabbled with classic painting in the past he now wants to do street art style."
The 38-year-old sportsman will use his fashion designer wife, Victoria Beckham, as his muse for his first piece but will also take inspiration from some of h...
