Angelina Jolie gets questions from her kids about her ink because they are obsessed with her tattoos. They just can’t get enough of her body art, and Jolie has to tell them the meaning of each symbol and text.
According to The Inquisitr, her son Pax is already thinking about getting his first one. An “insider says that Jolie tells him that he has ‘plenty of time’ to get inked (he’s only 10-years-old),” the site said. Obviously she and husband Brad Pitt wouldn’t let their kids get them until they are of age.
Jolie says that her six kids — sons Maddox, 12, Pax, 10, and Knox, 5, and daughters Zahara, 9, Shiloh, 8, and Vivienne, 5 — can’t get enough of their mom’s extensive tattoos, so much that it has created an obsession.
“They are obsessed with her tattoos and always ask what they mean,” the insider says, adding that Jolie, 39, is “happy to explain her tats to the kids.”
Jolie has 13 tattoo designs that includes an etching of the birth coordinates for each of her children, who were born all over the world, in Cambodia, Vietnam, Ethiopia, Namibia, and France.
The source notes that Shiloh is especially fascinated by her mom’s art.
Jolie is enjoying her recent success from her film Maleficent after a three and a half year absence from the big screen. She plays the titular role, Maleficent, the main antagonist from Disney’s 1959 animated feature Sleeping Beauty. The film showed the original story from the character’s perspective and background.
The film received mixed reviews, but her performance was singled out for praise. Critic Sheri Linden of The Hollywood Reporter found her to be the “heart and soul” of the film,” He added that she “doesn’t chew the estimable scenery in Maleficent — she infuses it, wielding a magnetic and effortless power”.
The film grossed $69.4 million on its opening weekend in North America, making it the largest opening performance in Jolie’s career, and the third highest opening weekend for a solo female star, behind the two films in the The Hunger Games series.
