Angelina Jolie's kids are obsessed with tattoos, according to a new report. The Maleficent star has quite a bit of ink of her body, and her six children apparently really like the look of her tattoos. According to Us Weekly, Jolie's kids are always asking questions about their mom's markings, and they like to learn about what each tattoo means.
An insider revealed:
"[The kids] are obsessed with her tattoos and always ask what they mean."
Angelina Jolie's kids are obsessed with tattoos, and her son Pax is already thinking about getting his first one. The insider says that Jolie tells him that he has "plenty of time" to get inked (he's only 10-years-old). Obviously Jolie and her beau, Brad Pitt, wouldn't let their kids get tattoos until they were of age, but it's not surprising to hear that the kids are curious and already thinking about adding ink to their own bodies.
According to MSN, Jolie has 13 tattoos. Her first tattoo was back in 1993. The Japanese kanji symbolizing death is inked on her left shoulder blade and reminds her to "live life to the fullest." She then got a dragon tattooed on her stomach which she covered with another tattoo of a Gothic cross in 1996. She later added the Latin words, "Quod me nutrit me destruit," which means "What nourishes me, destroys me."
In 1997, Angie got the letter "H" tattooed on her arm in honor of her brother, James Haven. After her mother passed away, Jolie got the letter "M" inked on the palm of her hand (her mother's name was Marcheline Bertrand). Jolie has a Tennessee Williams quote on her left arm that reads, "A prayer for the wild at heart kept in cages." She has a dragon on her arm and once had not one but two tattoos of her ex's name (Billy Bob Thornton, both of which have reportedly been removed). She also has the words, "Know your rights" tattooed on the top of her back.
Angelina Jolie's kids are obsessed with tattoos likely because their mother is obsessed with tattoos. Each one of Jolie's tattoos has a meaning near and dear to her heart. She likely tells her children that getting a tattoo is serious and that they should have a strong reason for etching something into their skin. Jolie knows about the painful process of tattoo removal, so she's really the best person for her kids to talk to about this kind of thing.
As previously reported by The Inquisitr, Jolie's latest film, Maleficent has outperformed at the box office. Perhaps a Disney-inspired inking is on her "to do" list, who knows?
