Angelina Jolie has tattoos all over her body and her kids reportedly want to get inked just like their famous mother. The director of the upcoming movie, Unbroken, tells Radio Times that it will be hard for her to say “no” when they are old enough to get a tattoo, but her husband, Brad Pitt is “horrified” at the thought.
Jolie and Pitt have six children who range age from 6 to 13, so they will have a few years to wait before they are of legal age to get a tattoo in the U.S. The legal age to get a tattoo in California, where the couple owns a sprawling mansion in Los Angeles, is 18, so their oldest child, Maddox will have to wait five more years if he wants his own inking.
“My kids rebelling would be if they all became brain surgeons. They’re already asking me about tattoos. How do I say ‘No’?”
The Daily Mail reports that Jolie, 39, is said to have at least 18 different tattoos on her body, with her most recent design — an inscription on her arm — added in 2013. Brad has his share of ink on his body as well, sporting as many as a dozen tattoos, including several on his arms and Angelina’s birth date written in Khmer (the official language of Cambodia) on his stomach.
Even if Brad does warm up to the thought of his kids getting tattoos, it may be a bit harder for the girls to get one than it will be for his sons. Angelina states that her daughters, Zahara, 9, Vivienne, 6, and Shiloh, 8, “can do no wrong” in Brad’s eyes, but he’d be more sensitive about the ink than he would be with the boys.
“It’s especially hard for dads and girls. For some reason men get a little more sensitive when the daughter gets a tattoo. And Brad thinks the girls can do no wrong. He’s mush in their hands!”
Although the kids are only asking and it’s going to be several years before they can legally get their own inkings, Angelina Jolie makes it clear that she won’t be forking over the cash to pay for them when the time comes, telling the Radio Times that if they want ink, “they’ll have to find a real job at the same time.”
