  • Dan Osborne gets new tattoo for baby Ella

    When Dan Osborne became a dad for the first time last year, he got his now son Teddy's name etched across his side. But now his daughter Ella with EastEnders actress Jacqueline Jossa, is almost 2 weeks old - Dan has decided to add to the ink that takes pride of place next to his *ahem* rippling abs.

    "Thank you SO much @tattoo_mart for tattooing Ella on my ribs underneath Teddy. Love it!!" he commented on Instagram, posting up a still-sore looking chest..

    But the TOWIE star isn't the only celeb dad to show his dedication to his children with tattoos on his body...

  • David adds Harper to his tattoos

    David Beckham has tattoos dedicated to his three boys, as well as an inking tribute for Harper, which he had done just a few weeks after she was born in 2011.  

    In a campaign poster for his new Intense Instinct fragrance, the dad-of-4 posed topless with the ‘Harper’ tattoo clearly displayed onto his left clavicle.

    The tribute to his daughter, 3, sits just above a tattoo of Jesus being held aloft by 3 cherubs, which, Beckham says, represent his three sons Brooklyn, 15, Romeo, 11 and 9-year-old Cruz.

    Explaining the tattoo for his boys, he previously said: "It's Jesus being carried by three cherubs and obviously the cherubs are my boys, and so my thought is that at some point my boys are going to need to look after me and that's what they're doing in the picture!"

    Becks has got 30 tatts all over his body but recently when Harper asked him to add another to his collection, how could he refuse?  Victoria took to Instagram to show off the latest design - and what would a three-year-old choose? A Minion of course!  It's only a transfer though (we think)...

  • Kanye West gets North West's birthdate tattooed

    Kanye West decided he wanted his 20-month-old daughter North West's birth date tattooed on his face. Luckily his wife Kim talked him out of it and he got the roman numerals inked on his wrists instead.

    "I talked him out of getting a face tattoo....for now," Kim posted on Instagram.

    As well as his daughter's birthdate, Kanye also got his late mum Donda's birthdate etched at the same time. "He got it on his wrists instead. His mother's birthdate and North's birthdate in Roman numerals," Kim explained as she shared photos.

  • Michael's handy Noah tattoo

    He comes across as pretty clean cut, so Canadian crooner Michael Buble might be a bit of a surprise entry on the tattoo list!

    The inking on the singer's wrist says ‘Noah’: the name of his son.

    Michael, 38, had his first child with wife Luisana Lopilato in August 2013.

    The crooner captioned the picture: “I know some have been asking about it... So here it is, my new tattoo!! #Noah #ontour #family #mbworldtour #tattoo”

  • W for Winston Fox

    Lawrence Fox also wanted to show what a dedicated dad he is with a tattoo tribute.

    The actor, who’s married to former Doctor Who star Billie Piper, showed off an inking of a small “W” behind his ear, a tribute to his eldest son, Winston who was born in August 2008.

    The Inspector Lewis actor and Billie are also parents to Eugene Pip, who they welcomed into the world in April 2012. It seems Lawrence hasn't been tempted to get an 'E' tattooed behind his other ear.

  • Robbie has a Teddy tat

    Robbie Williams welcomed his daughter Theodora Rose into the world in September 2012.

    For a man with many tattoos, the former Take That singer took a surprising 18 months to reveal a 'Teddy' tribute tattoo.

    The tattoo in his daughter's honour is a teddy bear marked with a 'T'. 

    Following the crazy antics the 40-year-old singer got up to at the birth of his son, Charlton, we're expecting an equally wild tattoo, coming soon...
