Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt tried to work things out before filing for divorce, according to a new report. The A-list couple got matching tattoos in hopes of binding them as husband and wife prior to their split.

Jolie is known for her passion for tattoos. In fact, she already has 15 tattoos, most of which she got when she was still a teenager, Daily Mail reported. However, aside from these, never-before-seen photos of the “Maleficent” star recently surfaced showing that she got new ink with her now-estranged husband, Pitt.

Jolie and Pitt got their matching tattoos in Siem Reap, Cambodia. She was shooting her Netflix movie “First They Killed My Father” in the country when she decided to visit a tattoo artist from Bangkok to work on the symbolic tattoos for her and Pitt during their break.

Former monk Ajarn Noo Kanpai did three intricate tattoos, called “sank yant,” on Jolie's back. The style was comprises of animal shapes, lines of script and geometric patterns, Comic Book reported. Meanwhile, Pitt had a Buddhist symbol tattooed on the left side of his stomach using Jolie’s ink to “symbolically bind them as husband and wife.”

Kanpai previously did tattoos for the "Salt" star back in 2003 and 2004. Jolie opted to have Kanpai do her ink as he is a master of an ancient handheld method that uses steel rods mounted with a surgical steel needle. The ink is applied to the skin using the instrument, which is more painful but more accurate than a tattoo gun.

This was not the first time Jolie opted to get a tattoo in honor of her ex-husband. She used to have a tattoo bearing the name of her ex, Billy Bob Thornton, on her left arm. However, the “By the Sea” star had it removed via laser in 2003 following their divorce, Yahoo 7 reported. Jolie replaced the tattoo with the coordinates of the birthplaces of her six children, including her biological kids with Pitt.
