Does anyone have a definitive list of all Angelina's tattoos. I believe she has had more since I did the biography ( http://www.alexander-the-great.co.uk/angelina_jolie.htm )

Thanks.

I believe she got a Tibetan prayer tattooed in the old fashioned way (needle and small hammer) on her left shoulder-blade for her adopted son who is from Tibet.

Here is a picture of the tattoo on her left shoulder blade.
Link to picture of Script Tattoo
She had a Buddhist monk in Thailand tattoo five columns of sacred text on her left shoulder blade. It was etched into her skin with traditional foot-long needles. Angelina says that it is a prayer of protection for her family.

As far as I know the Japanese symbol for death was on her left shoulder blade, so that one must have been removed.

She also has 13 in Roman numbers (XIII) on her left arm.

Her son Maddox is from Cambodia, not Tibet.

Here's a complete list of all of her tattoos:

1. tribal signs on her lower back
2. a small blue wibow tattooed on her spine on her lower back
3. a dragon tattooed on her lower back located above the tribal designs (I'm not quite sure if it is a dragon, but everyone assumes it to be and that's what it looks like.)
4. 5 columns of Buddhist scripture located on her left shoulder blade
5. a lower case, rune-shaped "h" on her left wrist
6. "A prayer for the wild at heart kept in cages" ATennessee William quote. Located on her left forearm
7. Roman numerals for the number 13 (XIII) also located on her left forearm directly beside her Tennessee Williams quote.
8. A dragon located on her upper left arm
9. an abstract design (looks like wavelengths) located on her right forearm
10. wavelengths located a little below her belly button
11. A large cross located on her lower stomach/hip bone on the right side
12. "Quod me nutrit me destruit" Latin for "What nourishes me also destroys me" Located on her lower stomach
13. a box design on her hip (don't know which one)

Also, there's a Billy Bob tattoo located *ahem* "down there" that was tattooed in a light ink so that it would eventually disappear. Now, I know the one on her shoulder is in the process of getting lasered off, but I'm not sure about that other located in such a personal area. Anyway.....hope that I helped. Can you tell I'm a huge fan?

My mistake, I read she did it to link herself with her adopted son's culture, so I assumed he was Tibetan.

Thanks for the tattoo information. In addition I have done some more research and hopefully now have an up to date list of her tattoos. The updated info can be found here: http://www.alexander-the-great.co.uk/angelina_jolie.htm

The Chinese symbol for "courage" tattoo she had on her right forearm is removed.
She got it because her ex-husband Jonny Lee Miller had one just the same. But she felt it didn't fit her, so she removed it.

Thanks, although I have mentioned in my list of her tattoos (#16) that it was removed (although I didn't know it was on her right forearm). Very Happy

Also, the Kanji symbol for "Death" was removed as well.
And you need to add that the columns of Khmer script on her shoulder blade is ancient Khmer script.
