After public acknowledgement that he is partly Hebrew, David Beckham, the most well-known world footballer, minded his own new heritage by the favorite citation from Bible, that he tattooed on his forearm. However, David Beckham, the superstar of Real Madrid, is not the only representative of small, but growing company of the stars, that appear to have Hebrew letters and Hebrew symbols forever depicted on their Hebrew tattoo designs.
The magazines about celebrities are surprised – in some cases – even in irritation, because the tattoos have peculiar, negative meaning for Hebrews after Holocaust and for ages have always been and still remain forbidden by Hebrew law.
David Beckham, the hero of tabloids in England, preferred not to comment in public on the contradiction between his new Hebrew pride and new Hebrew tattoo design that became the addition to collection of the others, including the names of two of his sons and even small crucifixion on the back of his neck. However, despite this contradiction, the new example of body art of Beckham was evidently chosen with great enthusiasm if not with understanding of Hebrew history and culture. The citation from the song of the songs, tattooed on Beckham, sounds as following: "I belong to my loved one and my loved one – to me".
This phrase – not the first for Beckham in the foreign language – is neighboring on the body of the superstar with the Hindus translation of the name of his wife, and it is considered to contain spelling mistakes.

After 80 years the most well-known pupil of Cabbala Center produced a video with the song that became the theme of the 20th film about James Bond – Die Another Day.
In the video clip the singer fights her second herself on swords and halberds.
The great popularity of Hebrew tattoo designs among the Hollywood stars was very much spoken about and very often laughed at, but considering Madonna, Hebrew mysticism that Cabbala Center offers, influenced her a lot. The singer proceeds learning from her own ravine, and visits Israel.
Britney Spears went even further and became the first celebrity to have a permanent Hebrew tattoo. In comparison to Madonna, who had a temporarily tattoo, Britney appeared in public with permanent Hebrew tattoo representing the name of the god, situated on the back of her neck.
However Britney Spears once suffered from the wrong meaning of the tattoo too – the Japanese one.
