Protection Tattoos

Lynn Gunn


Lynn Gvnn celebrated her 24th birthday on March 15, 2018 by getting a tattoo.  Her band PVRIS was on tour in San Antonio, TX so they met up with local artist Mason Chimato, who also gave drummer Justin Nace a tattoo of Roman numerals on his wrist.

Lynn opted for an intricate Eye of Providence design on her upper back. The all-seeing eye of God has a halo of emanating lines which represent rays of light.  This particular drawing of the symbol, with four shooting arrows and a leafed branch below the eye, is a replica of a woodcut print created by American engraver Alexander Anderson in the early 1800s.

Angelina Jolie


Angelina Jolie  has a Yant ViHan Pha Chad Sada tattoo on her back.

This tattoo is an original Sak Yant created by Ajarn Noo  Kanpai especially for Angelina and it was inked ob her back by the ex-monk using steel rods mounted with a surgical steel needle.

The complex design consists of two yants, the upper is a square box with magical text inside of it.  Sak Yant Talisman square represents the four continents and  the four elements of earth, water, wind, fire. Each box contains text but the order of which direction within the square make it impossible for anyone to really know it’s meaning except for Ajarn Noo.

For this special ink, Ajarn Noo Kanpai was flown from Bangkok to Siem Reap in Cambodia, where Angelina was filming. The three Sak yant tattoos she got that day were applied to her back while her ex Brad Pitt was given a Buddhist symbol on his stomach. Ajarn Noo drew designs on both stars using the same ink “to symbolically bind them as husband and wife”, but their marriage fell apart just months later and they separated in September 2016.

    Dua Lipa


    Dua Lipa got this homemade stick-and-poke tattoo of an eye in her own kitchen in March 2017. It was done by Amy Bowerman who is the wife of Dua’s drummer William Bowerman. After sketching out multiple versions of the eye on paper,  Amy used a needle and ink to tattoo it onto Dua’s inside right ankle.

    “@williambowerman has come over for dinner and as a house warming gift his wife is giving me a stick n poke tattoo,” Dua Lipa wrote on Twitter.  She said the “all seeing eye” is there to protect you.
