Angelina Jolie Pitt has added three new tattoos to her already inked back. The 40-year-old actor was spotted with the new inkings while working on her new film First They Killed My Father in Cambodia.
The designs are said to be in the yantra style, which is a traditional Buddhist form of body art that originated in Southeast Asia. They are typically hand-etched by monks, reported People magazine. The new tattoos are reportedly Buddhist blessings for peace, love and a prosperous life. However, it is unclear if they were technically yantra tattoos or simply in that style, the magazine added.
In the photos, Jolie’s upper back appears covered in intricate geometric designs. The actor already has a number of tattoos on her back and arms.
Jolie’s new directorial venture is based on a memoir about life under Cambodia’s Khmer Rouge regime. Her eldest son Maddox was born in Cambodia. Maddox and Pax are working with their mother on the project.
