Angelina Jolie Bares Buddhist Tattoos in a Backless Dress While Her Youngest Kids Steal the Show

Angelina Jolie attended the Dumbo premiere with four of her children, wearing a backless dress that reveals her Buddhist tattoos.

A Twitter post by AP Entertainment shows the 43-year-old actress in a rare public appearance with her children.

Jolie has had a tumultuous life in recent years. She separated from actor Brad Pitt in September 2016 after two years of marriage. The former couple were together for 12 years.

Jolie came to the Dumbo premiere in a backless cream gown. The event took place at the El Capitan Theater in Los Angeles on March 11, 2019.

Camera people and spectators could not help but notice the "Mr. and Mrs. Smith" star’s extensive tattoo collection.

The designs include a Buddhist prayer, a Tennessee Williams quote, and geographical coordinates of where her children were born.

MEANINGFUL TATTOOS

Added in 2016, Buddhist mantras were inked down her right shoulder blade, as well as a temple in the center of her back. Below the temple is a grid design known as Yantra, which is believed to bring good luck.

Back in 2004, Jolie also had a large Bengal tiger inked on her back to celebrate her Cambodian citizenship. Done in Bangkok, the tattoo was made in traditional Thai style with a manual needle, with the tattoo artist chanting an ancient hymn.

THE BREAKUP

Jolie has had a tumultuous life in recent years. She separated from actor Brad Pitt in September 2016 after two years of marriage. The former couple were together for 12 years.

Their split resulted in a custody battle for their six children; Maddox, 16, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 11, and 9-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.

Shiloh has been reportedly the one most affected by the breakup. An unnamed source close to the family claimed that the 11-year-old girl even wrote a letter to her father letting him know that she misses him.

“She wrote that she misses his bedtime stories and him tucking her in at night. It no doubt brought tears to Brad's eyes,” the source said.

Shiloh is reportedly the only one desperate for her father to return home.
