These never-seen-before photos show Angelina Jolie getting tattooed by a Thai ex-monk. Famed tattoo artist Ajarn Noo Kanpai was flown from Bangkok to Siem Reap in Cambodia, where she was filming. The mystical ink was applied using steel rods mounted with a surgical steel needle more accurate than a tattoo gun, but also much more painful.
According to Sunday Mirror, the three Sak yant tattoos were applied to her back while her ex Brad Pitt was given a Buddhist symbol on his stomach.
The photographs were taken as Angelina directed Netflix movie First They Killed My Father in February last year.
The two designs were intended “to symbolically bind them as husband and wife”, but their marriage fell apart just months later. They separated in September 2016.
