Angelina Jolie at the “Maleficent” World Premiere at El Capitan Theater on May 28, 2014 in Los Angeles, CA
Angelina Jolie has the birthplace coordinates of all seven children inked on her left arm. As she’s added new lines to the list, she also added a swirl on the top right corner.
Inside Angelina Jolie’s left elbow are the words “A prayer for the wild at heart kept in cages,” the subtitle of Tenessee Williams’ 1941 play Stairs to the Roof.
The tattoo on Angelina Jolie’ left shoulder blade honors her first son Maddox Chivan Jolie-Pitt who was born in 2001 and adopted by Angelina in 2002. Maddox was born in Cambodia and the tattoo is written in Khmer, Cambodia’s official language. It is a prayer that reads “May your enemies run far away from you/If you acquire riches may they remain yours always/Your beauty will be that of Apsara/Wherever you may go, may will attend, serve and protect you, surrounding you on all sides.”
On the side of her left forearm, Angelina Jolie has a tattoo of the Roman Numeral “XIII V MCMXL,” which represents the numbers 13/5/1940. It is a tribute to Winston Churchill, for the “blood, toil, tears and sweat” speech which he gave on May 13, 1940.
She also has some swirling lines to connect it to a neighboring tattoo on her elbow.
