Angelina’s tattoos have received a lot of media attention and journalists often ask her about it. While not opposed to nude scenes in films, she says that the many tattoos on her body force filmmakers to be more creative when planning nude and love scenes. Cosmetic creams are used to cover her tattoos in some of her productions. Jolie currently has, as far as we know, thirteen tattoos. One of these, on her back, read: Know your rights , and on her forearm she kept a Tennessee Williams quote a prayer for those with a wild heart , when she was with her mother. Furthermore, his tattoos with the Arabic term العزيمة (“willpower”), the Latinproverb quod me nutrit me destru (“that nourishes me, destroys me”), and a Jantragebed written in ancient Khmer and Pali – for her eldest son Maddox. On her left arm are four sets of GPS coordinates, indicating the places where her children were born.
Over the years, she has had other laser tattoos removed or hidden, including “Billy Bob”, the name of her ex-husband Billy Bob Thornton, a Chinese symbol for death (死) and a window at the bottom of her back. She explains that she got rid of the window because she “spent all her time looking through windows, wishing she was outside, but now she’s living outside all the time”.
