Brooklyn Beckham is following in his famous father's footsteps.

The budding photographer and son of David Beckham got his first tattoo on Saturday, after turning 18 years old on March 4. Brooklyn opted for an image of a Native American on his right forearm, inspired by a similar work on his father's torso.
