David Beckham is partying like it's 1999...with a brand-new tattoo!

The 40-year-old soccer stud recently got some new ink on his pinky—the number 99.

"99 was a good year for me..." he wrote on Instagram, alongside a black-and-white pic.

In 1999, his team at the time, Manchester United, became the first U.K. team to win "The Treble"—the Premier League trophy, the FA Cup and the UEFA Champions League trophy in the same season. Oh yeah, and also that year, he married that lovely Spice Girls singer...

David and Victoria Beckham, who is 41 and now also a fashion designer, wed on July 4, 1999 at a castle near Dublin. The two played king and queen, sitting on red velvet thrones throughout the evening, and were entertained by Elton John.

They recently celebrated their 16th anniversary.

"16 years ago today was our special day... 16 years on we have our beautiful children..." David wrote on Instagram. "Thank you for giving me our amazing little ones .... Happy anniversary."

The two share four children—sons Brooklyn Beckham, 16, Romeo Beckham, 12, and Cruz Beckham, 10 as well as daughter Harper Beckham, 4.

"Happy anniversary," Victoria wrote on her Instagram page, alongside a pic of the group. "I love u so much x I'm so proud of our beautiful family x."
