Angelina Jolie Got Painful Couple's Tattoo With Brad Pitt Before Split
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt got matching tattoos during the filming of "First They Killed My Father" movie February last year. The news came weeks after the two officially announced their divorce.
Mirror reports that Jolie and Pitt reportedly got their tattoos from a Thai tattoo artist named Ajarn Noo Kanpai. The "Salt" actress got three Sak Yant tattoos on her back while the actor got a Buddhist symbol inked on his stomach.
The tattoo session was said to be painful as the Thai artists who had to be flown from Thailand to Cambodia used a traditional inking method. He used steel rods with a surgical needle and inked away at Jolie and Pitt.
The tattoos of Jolie and Pitt symbolized longevity for their marriage. However, the binding tattoo didn't save the two from their split months later in September 2016. Mail Online reports that some of Jolie's new tattoos also has commemorative references to those who died under the reign of the Khmer Rouge which is fitting during that time.
Ajarn is reportedly a self-professed master of the Sak Yant spiritual tattoo. Jolie is a regular client of the ex-monk as she had her first ink with him in 2003 and then got another tattoo in 2004. His works reportedly cost thousands of dollars and have worked with other celebrities like Cara Delevigne apart from Jolie and Pitt.
Jolie is reportedly preoccupied with showing the film "First They Killed My Father" in Cambodia despite the ongoing divorce with Pitt. The movie will be shown for free in different parts of the country before it will be released on Netflix.
Jolie and Pitt have their lawyers deliberating over the care of their children since the actor was accused of being physically abusive of one of his children. The Oscar-winning actress wants sole physical custody while giving Pitt scheduled visits while the actor wants physical and legal custody.
