Angelina Jolie’s tattoos record how the actress rose from the young girl who performed in music videos to an Academy Award-winning leading lady and acclaimed humanitarian. Though some of her tattoos have been removed, the faint outlines remain as a souvenir of where she’s been and how far she’s come through the years.

Some of the initial Angelina Jolie tattoos were done when she was just starting out in the entertaining business and appearing in films like “Cyborg 2” and “Hackers.” Just like some of Angelina Jolie’s movies have faded into history many of her early inking’s have since been covered up or removed.


Perhaps her most distinguished tattoo was the name “Billy Bob” to honour her one-time husband, actor Billy Bob Thornton. After their marriage ended in 2003, Jolie had the tattoo, and an accompanying image of a black dragon, removed. She rapidly covered over the area with a new set of heart-felt tattoos, for her children.

Rather than tattooing their names, Jolie added the geo-coordinates of the origins of her six children on her upper left arm, the spot previously occupied by the “Billy Bob” tattoo. In 2011, she added a seventh set of coordinates for Oklahoma, the birthplace of her long-time partner and genetic father to three of their children, Brad Pitt. This extra step to honour her family in a unique way easily qualifies as one of the best celebrity tats.
