Brad Pitt’s Tattoos
As mentioned earlier, Brad Pitt has multiple tattoos inked across his body, but the total number of tattoos he has is not known as the father of six prefers to keep that info private. Still, from random sightings in public, we have been able to narrow down some of his tattoos and will be revealing them. But before we do so, you should know that tattoos could either be decorative, symbolic, or pictorial. Decorative tattoos have no concrete meaning, while symbolic tattoos possess a meaning that is personal or specific to the wearer. Pictorial tattoos are just representations or depictions of a person or thing. As we’ll be showing in the next few paragraphs, Brad’s tattoos cut across all of these.
Tattoo Locations, Design, and Meaning
The first and most recent of his tattoos, we will be exploring, is an image of a man standing beside his shadow located on Brad’s right arm. The all-black tattoo was first sighted at the 2019 Venice Film Festival, where the actor’s Ad Astra premiered. The meaning of the tattoo is unknown, but speculations are that it might relate to his former wife, Angelina Jolie.
The second tat and in the same region as his most recent tattoo is an ink of a quote from a poem by a Persian scholar and poet known as Rumi. This tattoo was gotten right before his marriage to Angelina Jolie in 2014 and reads, “There exists a field beyond all notions of right and wrong. I will meet you there”.
The third tattoo, located on his left forearm, is a tattoo of the words “Absurdites de l’ existence,” which is French for “Life is absurd.” This notion is one that we cannot argue against. Life is definitely weird as it is unpredictable
Brad Pitt’s fourth tattoo is a Sanskrit blessing tattoed on the left side of his lower back. This tattoo has been said to be a kind of protection tattoo for his son, Maddox.
The fifth, which is also on his lower back, is a tattoo of scribblings drawn by his ex-wife Angelina Jolie. This tattoo was misinterpreted as having various deep meanings until Jolie debunked them in an interview with Entertainment Weekly.
The sixth one is a drawing of Otzi, Europe’s oldest mummy on his left inner forearm. The meaning of this tattoo is also unknown, as Brad hasn’t been forthcoming with its meaning. Close to this tattoo is another ink of the word “Invictus”, which is Latin for “undefeated” and is also a possible reference to a poem by William Earnest Henley of the same title.
The seventh one is a tattoo of a motorbike on Brad’s left bicep. This tattoo is obviously symbolic of his love for the mode of transport.
The eight tattoos are tattoos relating to his family members. On his right forearm is a tattoo of a thin-lined cross consisting of alphabets representative of the initials of his individual family members that is his ex-wife and kids. Also, there is the tattoo of Angelina Jolie’s date of birth on his abdomen written in the Khmer language, which is Cambodia’s official language.
Some of these tattoos are visible in the clip in this Instagram post.
Brad Pitt definitely loves tattoos and flaunts them as often as he can.
