Angelina Jolie Tattoos

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.”

    With the faded silhouette of her laser-removed dragon tattoo still visible, Angeline Jolie had a new tattoo done on top of it. This tattoo pays homage to her children, listing the latitude and longitude coordinates of their birthplaces. Shown in this photo from 2007 are the birthplaces of her first four children, but she has added onto the tattoo as she and Brad Pitt have welcomed more children into their family.
