Some celebrities become cults in their own right as their celebrity and prominence rise. Angelina Jolie is an actress who has built a name for herself in a variety of ways. She has been a source of inspiration for her humanitarian efforts, but it is also the fact that she has huge tattoos covering the majority of her body that keep her in the limelight.
Angelina Jolie has been in the headlines a lot lately due to her tattoo obsession. Angelina Jolie, who has over a dozen tattoos on her body, is a proponent of self-expression, and the reasons behind each of her tattoo choices are intimately linked to her life and relationships.
Almost all of her tattoos are covered with makeup while filming. Depending on whether or not the position necessitates displaying the tattoos. Her impact as an actress is well-known in the tattoo industry.
Angelina Jolie has multiple tattoos on her back that join to form a lovely symmetrical piece of body art.
1. Goth Lettering
The actress had ‘know your rights’ tattooed on her back in English in 2004. This is said to be a reference to Angelina Jolie’s favorite band, The Clash.
2. Left shoulder blade
This tattoo was done by Noo alias Sompong, a well-known tattoo artist, on her left arm’s shoulder blade. She had this tattooed at a hotel 16 miles north of Bangkok. This hotel is in Pathum Thani, where she frequently gets tattooed.
This tattoo was created using the Khmer script, which is a Buddhist Pali incantation. This is a Cambodian dialect. Maddox, her eldest son, is Cambodian, and she got this tattoo to protect both her kid and herself from ill luck.
This tattoo translates to:
May the people who are against you run away from you
If you become rich, may these riches stay yours forever?
Your beauty will resonate with the beauty of Apsara
Many will serve, attend to and protect you no matter where you go
They will surround you completely.
3. Yant Kraw Petch tattoo
Angelina Jolie has a ‘Yant Kraw Petch’ tattoo on her right shoulder, which was done by Thai monk Ajarn Noo Kanpai.
The tremendous attributes of Buddha are highlighted in this yantra. It aids you in matters of fortune, virtue, riches, and commercial success. This Yant protects those who receive it from ill luck and failure in life.
The Temple where this artwork was constructed also states that those who say this Kata every day will have their bodies coated in Diamond Armour and will be safe from all perils, never being able to be destroyed by their foes. Furthermore, the opponent will be annihilated by a weird occurrence caused by the magical Diamond Armour’s reflected outcome.
4. Sak Yant Yant Phutson tattoo
The Yant of the Five Gods, or Sak Yant Phutson, promotes sincere faith in the qualities it embodies. From the past to the present, this has been a highly famous and well-known symbol for Thai people.
It is the most powerful and multi-purpose talisman (A Master Talisman). The Sak Yant symbolizes possessing and acting with great charity toward yourself and others, as well as accumulating enormous wealth in both the physical and spiritual realms. Wearing this charm brings good fortune and career advancement.
5. Angelina Jolie’s Sak Yant Yant ViHan Pha Chad Sada tattoo
This is made up of two yants, the first of which is a square box with magical lettering within. This is a unique Sak Yant made specifically for Angelina by Ajarn Noo, and it’s been a challenge to figure out what it means.
The four continents, as well as the four elements of earth, water, wind, and fire, are represented by the Sak Yant Talisman square. Except for Ajarn Noo, each box has text, but the arrangement in which the text appears within the square makes it difficult for anybody to truly understand what it means.
6. The Bengal tiger
This tattoo is located on the bottom part of her back. It’s a 12-inch tattoo that’s one of her most recent. It was tattooed in the same spot as her Buddhist incantation tattoo in 2004. Sompong Kanhphai, the same tattoo artist, did it for her, and he sanctified it with an old ritual. It took about two hours to do this tattoo. This tattoo was required in order for her to recognize her Cambodian citizenship. This tattoo was created utilizing Thai traditional needling techniques.
7. Tennessee Inspired
I have a tattoo “A prayer for the wild at heart kept in cages.” I got it when I was 20. I was with my mom one evening, and I was feeling lost. I was restless—always. I still am.What she did for me that night was to remind me that the wild within me is alright and a part of me. pic.twitter.com/qkks6t0xjv

A Tennessee Williams quotation is tattooed on her left arm. This quotation comprises a prayer for free-spirited people whose right to freedom is restricted by cages. This tattoo is meaningful to Jolie since she got it done in front of her mother.
“A prayer for the wild at heart kept in cages”
8. Roman numerals
While the number “13” is associated with a lot of superstition, Angelina does not believe in it. On the inside side of her left forearm, she got the roman numeral 13 tattooed. She later changed her tattoo by adding details from Winston Churchill’s well-known speech, in which he addressed the audience and stated that he had nothing to offer but tears, sweat, toil, and blood. It is frequently stated, “I have nothing to contribute but blood, toil, tears, and sweat.” She completed the date of the speech by adding “V MCMXL” tit to the existing roman numeral 13.
10. Swirling lines
She also has some swirling lines to connect it to a neighboring tattoo on her elbow.
11. Buddhist swirls tattoo
On her left forearm, Angelina Jolie has a Buddhist swirls tattoo, a sign that Buddhists believe provides good luck and protection from evil.
Angelina Jolie evidently enjoys learning new languages, as seen by the numerous tattoos she has on her body in various languages. Despite the fact that this tattoo does not have a joyful tale, it means a lot to her. She got this tattoo with her ex-husband Billy, and in English, this Arabic word signifies determination. It’s positioned just below the elbow on her right forearm.
13. The Holy Cross
The day before Angelina married Johny Lee Miller in 1995, the actress got a cross tattoo on her hip, to hide a little dragon with a blue tongue she had from a trip to Amsterdam. Next to the cross tattoo is the Latin phrase: “Quod me nutrut me destruit” that means “what nourishes me, destroys me.” This was a symbolic decision on her behalf, with no negative connotations.
14. Rune Style
Many of her followers have been perplexed by her tattoo. This tattoo is simply the letter H, however Jolie does not disclose where it came from. It might be her brother James Haven or Timothy Hutton, her previous boyfriend.
15. Death Symbol in Japan
Angelina is reminded to live each day to the utmost by this sign of death. It’s tattooed on her left shoulder blade and represents a death sign in the Japanese language. This was a sign she had tattooed previously, but she has since replaced it with an incantation tattoo for the protection and safety of her son and herself.
Angelina Jolie has always advocated promoting adoption as a noble cause, giving homes for children who have been abandoned by their parents or who are in need of a loving family. She has tattooed the coordinates of the precise areas where she initially adopted each of her children onto her body since this is a cause near to her heart.
- N11 ̊33’00” E104 51’00”
These are the coordinates of the location where Angelina adopted Maddox from in Cambodia.
