Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt found out the hard way that getting matching tattoos doesn’t equal an unbreakable bond. The estranged married couple were secretly inked by a Thai tattooist with twin tats just months before their shocking split! The pics of their intricate ink are incredible!
Did Angelina Jolie, 41, and Brad Pitt, 52, learn nothing from the “Wino Forever” fable? Even in the most stable of relationships, getting matching tattoos is almost always a bad idea; when things go south, both parties are stuck with a permanent reminder of their ex! That’s what happened with Brad and Angelina after they reportedly received fresh ink from renowned Thai tattooist Ajarn Noo Kanpai just a few months before their brutal public split.
Terrible timing, right? Angelina, who has a known affinity for tattoos, wanted to get inked by Ajarn so badly that she flew him out from Bangkok to Los Angeles in February 2016 to get one of his prized designs. She went through the rigorous process of getting tattooed with a huge Buddhist symbol that covered a large portion of her back, and then-husband Brad got his own during the same session!
Brad chose to get a large Buddhist symbol of his own on the left side of his stomach. The tattoos were reportedly intended to “to symbolically bind them as husband and wife,” but as we all know, that really didn’t work out. CLICK HERE TO SEE THE PICS. Although their marriage is over, Ajarn’s beautiful tattoos are thought to “protect” their recipients, so Brad and Angelina will be safe and sound in their separate lives.
This isn’t the first time that Angelina’s gone down the “tattoo for my ex” route. While married to ex-husband Billy Bob Thornton, 61, Angelina had a massive “Billy Bob” tattoo on her bicep. That baby was removed promptly. Her beautiful back tattoo has no mention of Brad, so it’s possible it’s there to stay.
