Angelina Jolie is a famous actress with a serious love for tattoos, she's regularly featured in celebrity news magazines and websites with one of her new tattoo designs. This tattoo on her left shoulder blade was, just like the tiger tattoo, done by tattoo artist Noo (aka Sompong) Kanhphaiin in a hotel in Pathum Thani, 16 miles north of Bangkok.It is a Buddhist Pali incantation written in Khmer script, the language of Cambodia.
Angelina Jolie had the cross tattoo done the day before she married Johnny Lee Miller in 1995. The coordinates tattoo covers the place where the dragon tattoo and name of her ex husband Billy Bob used to be before they got lasered off. This 12-inch long, 8-inch wide Bengal tiger tattoo on her lower back is Angelina Jolie's latest. This abstract lines tattoo design on Angelina Jolie's right arm is a custom tattoo created by herself and Billy Bob Thornton. This tattoo on Jolie's left shoulder blade is the Japanese symbol for Death and it reminds her to live.
Angelina Jolie had an Asian dragon tattoo with the name of her second husband Billy Bob Thornton above it (added later).
It took 5 visits to the tattoo removal clinic to erase the dragon and you can still see it a bit. She also had a dragon tattoo with blue tongue on Angelina's hip is covered up by the cross tattoo (see above).
Angelina has the letter M tattooed on the palm of her hand, a remembrance for her mother Marcheline Bertrand, who passed away. The idea of religious tattoos may seem counterintuitive, for several reasons – not only is tattooing prohibited by some religions, such as Orthodox Judaism, but until recently, tattoos were associated with a vaguely disreputable counterculture that seems at odds with religion. Nowadays, because tattooing has gone mainstream, religious tattoos are not just for gang members – not by a long shot.
Christian tattoos are the most popular form of religious tattoos, especially in North and South America.
Sometimes lettering is added to the image – such as the chapter and verse number of a certain Psalm or Bible verse.


Besides the obvious religious meaning, Virgin Mary tattoos are also a symbol of strength and virtue. The Virgin Mary tattoo is also popular in the Latin world and used to be popular among seafarers, for whom they symbolized the longing for their wives on their long trips abroad.Mary is not only a Christian symbol, she is also honored in Islam. Of course, not all religious tattoos are Christian at all, though symbols from the other major religions are rarer. Orthodox Judaism forbids tattooing, though this is not an edict that everyone follows – occasionally, you might see a Star of David or a menorah tattoo, but they are the exception rather than the rule. Another factor is that tattooing is considered disrespectful to those who were tattooed by the Nazis in the Holocaust. The Indian religions have their own traditional body art, but tattooing is fairly uncommon. The Hindu deities are very extravagant and colorful, what makes them ideal for a tattoo design.
Sak Yant (aka yantra tattoos) is the art of sacred tattooing as done by Buddhist monks in Thailand and Cambodia.
Buddha tattoos have a certain popularity in the West though and most of them depict Buddha sitting in a meditative position. Allen Iverson: NBA player with a praying hands tattoo on his chest accompanied by his mother's and grandmother's names. Cross Tattoos: Celebrities with a cross tattoo include Justin Timberlake, Robbie Williams, Lenny Kravitz and Britney Spears. Hebrew Tattoos: Celebrities with a Hebrew tattoo include David and Victoria Beckham, Madonna and Christina Aguilera. She has at least a dozen tattoos over her body and she also has quite a lot experience with tattoo removal (see the end of this article for the tattoos that she had removed). It covers up the abstract lines tattoo she had done together with her ex Billy Bob Thornton.
It was done in Bangkok on July 8, 2004, during a 2 hour session by tattoo artist Sompong Kanhphai who also blessed it by chanting an ancient hymn.


Her ex husband Johnny Lee Miller had a matching tattoo, that's why she had it removed, it didn't feel like her own. Besides identification, decoration and social ranking, early tattoos definitely had a spiritual purpose. Mexican and other Latin gangs have been using Christian symbols in their tattoo art for generations, believing in the protection that these images can give.
The crusaders had a small cross tattoo on their hand or arm to ensure they got a Christian burial when they died in some foreign country. In some tattoo designs Jesus is pictured on the cross, making the whole design considerably more complex. It is written in the Devanagari script, a very elegant script that lends itself very well to tattoo designs. Sak Yant tattoo designs came from India together with Buddhism and were tailored by the Khmer. Religious tattoos are, in short, far more common and versatile than you might think, and for many people they are a powerful, personal way of expressing their faith.
It's also very popular as a tattoo design in all kinds of languages like Farsi, Arabic, Hebrew, Sanskrit, Chinese and Japanese. And it doesn't stop there – people use religious tattoos to express a great variety of religious views. Other Jesus tattoos are a close up of his face with or without a crown of thorns or a halo. A tattoo of Buddha might be a bit contradictious because Buddha discouraged the use of images. Wiccans and other neo-pagans are great fans of tattoos, and many religious symbols can be found among their favored tattoo images.
