Monday 26 September 2022 10:38 PM Victoria Beckham's wrist tattoo tribute to husband David missing in latest ... trends now
The fashion designer, 48, took to Instagram last week to give fans a glimpse at the new Bitten Lip Tint, Je t’aime, from her range and, as the former Spice Girl made a swatch of the make-up on her arm, her body art was noticeably missing.
The inkings on her wrists – which she had done to celebrate milestones with husband David – have become increasingly faded in recent years after she decided to undergo laser treatment to have them removed.
Vanishing act: Victoria Beckham, 48, left fans 'fascinated' after they noticed she'd had her wrist tattoo tribute to husband David Beckham removed in a beauty video (pictured in March)
But some of her social media followers were left baffled, with one asking: 'Why did you get your tattoo removed Victoria? Just fascinated x.'
It is understood Posh, who launched her successful fashion label in 2008, opted for laser treatment after becoming concerned the tattoos were not befitting of a high-powered businesswoman.
As well as the roman numerals VIII-V-MMVI representing May 8, 2006 – the date she and David renewed their wedding vows – her right wrist had the Latin phrase ‘De Integro’, which translates as ‘again from the start’.

This is said to have marked her new beginning with her husband and family in the United States, after the former England captain moved to the club LA Galaxy in 2007.
On her left wrist she also had her husband’s initials, DB, and the words ‘Together, forever, eternally’ written in Hebrew – chosen to mark her tenth wedding anniversary.
However, the tattoos were no longer visible at all in Victoria's latest beauty video.

Another Hebrew tattoo down the back of her neck once read ‘Ani l’dodi li va’ani lo haro’eh bashoshanim’, meaning ‘I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine’. Her husband has a matching design on his arm.
She also had five stars inked 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 now also have a daughter, Harper, 11, born in 2011.
Laser tattoo removal uses beams of coloured light to break down the ink into minuscule fragments, which can then be absorbed into the bloodstream and excreted via the liver and digestive system. Private clinics charge around £150 per session for a small tattoo and up to £800 for a larger one.
Eight to 10 sessions are typically needed for large
