David Beckham turns two of his kids' drawings into tattoos.

David Beckham is a pretty perfect dad. In fact, if there was a "perfect dad checklist," we're pretty sure it would look something like this:

  • Is super-involved in kids' lives
  • Is the ideal soccer coach
  • Immortalizes kids' drawings on his own body (seriously!)
  • Happens to be super-hot

Okay, that last one was for us moms (sorry, Victoria!). But the star definitely checks all the boxes when it comes to being an awesome dad to his four kids, Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz, and Harper.

Recently, the former professional soccer player posted some brag shots of his kids' artistic talents on Instagram, using a slightly unconventional canvas.

"Apparently Harper is allowed to scribble on daddy," the hunky model captioned one sweet shot of a stick figure his daughter penned on dad's palm.

Another image shows his boys' message of affection for their famous father: "We Love You Daddy." Awww.

But the British icon didn't just let his kids doodle on his skin to suds the sketches off in the shower. Beckham actually had the drawings tattooed on his (very admirable) physique. Now that's adorable! Go ahead, you can "awww" again.

It isn't just about fun in the Beckham household, however. The dad-of-four recently said he runs a tight ship, and insists on perfect manners for his brood. Clearly this is one family who knows how to balance structure with silliness.

We wonder: What the famous kiddos will draw on daddy next?
