Despite rumors suggesting that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are fighting a lot and may be headed toward a divorce, the couple shushed them all by getting similar tattoos, a report by Radar Online said Sunday. The divorce rumors of the couple, together for over 10 years, began last month and said that they have been fighting a lot and may get separated this year.
However, the latest report by Radar Online said Sunday, citing Australian magazine Women’s Day, that the couple asked Thai artist Ajarn Noo Kanpai to get their tattoos while Jolie was in Cambodia, shooting for her film “First They Killed My Father,” which is based on the memoir of human rights activist Loung Ung. The film, set to be released this year, also stars their 14-year-old son Maddox.
Pitt and Jolie reportedly opted for a tattoo that would hold significance to her recent health struggles, Radar Online reported. Jolie found that she had genes that leave her predisposed to cancer and recently had her ovaries and both her breasts removed. Kanpai had also inked Jolie twice before — once in 2003 on her shoulder and the second in 2004 when she got a tattoo on her lower back.
“The tattoos are composed of grids with pyramids at the top… they help to give the wearer protection and health,” a source told Radar Online, adding: “Angelina is a very spiritual person and has long believed her tattoos are more than just designs on her body — that they actually hold some meaning, power and influence over her."
Pitt’s tattoo on his ribcage, also shows the Thai Buddhist symbol just below his previous tattoo saying: “We live, we die, we know not why, but I’ll be with you.” The phrase is reportedly tattooed in Jolie’s handwriting.
The Radar Online report also cited Women’s Day to say that the tattoos were hand-poked using bamboo tubes and sterilized needles, instead of tattoo guns.
Kanpai said, according to Radar Online, “I only work with people who are clean and moral,” adding: “My tattoos have a great deal of spiritual meaning and significance, so I hope they have blessed her.”
A report last month also said that Jolie, Pitt and their six children may be looking to move to London, U.K., with a motive of helping the refugee crisis in the region. Reports had said that their plan was to “focus on political projects” linked directly to the refugee crisis.
