Angelina Jolie Tattoos

Angelina Jolie's tattoos chronicle how the actress rose from the young girl who appeared in music videos to an Academy Award-winning leading lady and acclaimed humanitarian. Though some of her tattoos have been removed, the faint outlines remain as a reminder of where she's been and how far she's come throughout the years.

Some of the earliest Angelina Jolie tattoos were done when she was just starting out in the entertainment business and appearing in films like "Cyborg 2" and "Hackers." Just like some of Angelina Jolie's movies have faded into history many of her early inkings have since been covered up or removed.

Perhaps her most notable tattoo was the name "Billy Bob" to honor her one-time husband, actor Billy Bob Thornton. After their marriage ended in 2003, Jolie had the tattoo, and an accompanying image of a black dragon, removed. She quickly covered over the area with a new set of heart-felt tattoos, for her children.

Rather than tattooing their names, Jolie added the geo-coordinates of the birthplaces of her six children on her upper left arm, the spot formerly occupied by the "Billy Bob" tattoo. In 2011, she added a seventh set of coordinates for Oklahoma, the birthplace of her longtime partner and biological father to three of their children, Brad Pitt. This extra step to honor her family in a unique way easily qualifies as one of the best celebrity tats.

What tattoos does Angelina Jolie have, and what's the meaning behind Angelina Jolie's tattoos? As the actress has stated she is open to adding more children to her growing brood, we can expect that her tattoo collection, at least those which honor her family members, will continue to grow as well. Other famous actors that have tattoos who are as famous as her include Chris Evans body art and Johnny Depp Ink
