Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie has gotten three new Yantra tattoos. The wife of famous actor Brad Pitt showed off her new body writings while working on her new film, ‘First They Killed My Father,’ in Cambodia on Sunday, February 7.
Yantra (or sak yant) tattoo style is a traditional Buddhist form of body art that originated in Southeast Asia. Yantra tattoos are typical hand-etched by Buddhist monks and special Ruesi practitioners, requiring meticulous skill.
A source tells People magazine that Mrs. Brad Pitt did indeed get three new tattoos and that they are Buddhist blessings for peace, love and a prosperous life. However, it is unclear if they were technically Yantra tattoos or simply in that style. Jolie has numerous tattoos, including a large tiger on her lower back from famed Thai tattoo artist Sompong Kanphai. She recently displayed a new piece in December – a geometric design on the inside of her left arm.
