Angelina Jolie has had at least 16 known tattoos:
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.
