Dame Angelina Jolie’s kids are ‘obsessed with her tattoos,’ they want ink too


Here are some photos of Dame Angelina Jolie (YES!!), Brad Pitt, Zahara and Maddox arriving at LAX on Saturday after their week-long stay in London. And what a week it was – Angelina launched an enormously successful Global Summit and she was made an honorary Dame by Queen Elizabeth. Perfection. Black sacks for everyone!

Is anyone else wondering about the young girl who seems to be part of their group? She doesn’t look old enough to be an employee, nor does it seem like she’s the same age as any of the Jolie-Pitt kids, like…maybe she’s Maddox’s little girlfriend? But she looks like she’s a few years older than Madd. Who is she? Is she some adopted Jolie-Pitt that we’ve never seen? Is this our long-lost Fax Cannes Jolie-Pitt? (Fax Jolie-Pitt = a really old joke about how difficult it was to ID Vivienne, Knox and Shiloh several years ago, so I just made up a mystery Jolie-Pitt child named Fax Cannes J-P.)

Meanwhile, Us Weekly has a cute story about how the kids are obsessed with Dame Angelina’s many, many tattoos:

Angelina Jolie’s children are drawn to her ink! The Maleficent star’s six kids with Brad Pitt — 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 body art and are constantly asking questions about it, a source reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly.

“They are obsessed with her tattoos and always ask what they mean,” the insider tells Us, adding that Jolie, 39, is “happy to explain her tats to the kids.” (Among the 13 designs is 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 ink. And Pax is already eager to get his own. “Angie tells him he has plenty of time,” the insider says.

My favorite Dame Angie-tatts are the Cambodian prayer one on her shoulder and the coordinates of her kids’ birthplaces on her upper arm. My least favorite is that gigantic tiger on her lower back. But I imagine the kids like the tiger. But what about Brad’s ink? He’s got a lot of ink too, and he’s gotten a lot more in the past decade, since he’s been with Angelina. Hm. Maybe mom’s ink is just better?

PS… Zahara’s pink kicks give me life. And Mr. Dame Angie looks really good in this ensemble – so much hotter than his usual beige linen uniform.

    Brads lost some weight, he looks good!

  2. Bead says:

    That girl has been in other pics with them, usually with Zahara & Shiloh.

    She is probably a friend of theirs. I know people want to refuse to beleive they actually have friends….ugh

  3. I’d actually believe that this was true–it’s the sort of thing that kids do. I remember when I was little, I would pretend I had tattoos because my mom had a few. Plus what kid doesn’t like those fake, apply with water tattoos?

  4. lower-case deb says:

    i read in the tumblrs that the unidentified girls is Z’s friend? poor friend having to run the pap gauntlet. she looks game and okay though, so i guess they did give her a good prep ahead.

    my favorite tat of hers is also the prayer tattoo. it looks nice and it has a deep meaning too. i guess the tiger tattoo has a meaning too (wasn’t it a Thai sacres ritual thing? maybe not), but it’s too big for me.

    also, i have a feeling Us Weekly is just recycling old news. during the Kungfu panda press rounds, AJ mentioned that the kids find it funny that she has a tiger tattoo and now plays a tiger in the cartoon. they wAnt tattoos too, but she said they can get the washout tattoos for now. i remember this interview because Jack Black was egging her on and he asked her whether she’d be Po instead if she had a panda tattoo.

    i can’t find the interview anywhere now. i swear i saw it on youtube not a while back.

  5. Frida_K says:

    Hooray for Dame Angie!

    And Z just gets cuter and cuter all the time. All their darling children do.


  6. lisa2 says:

    I bet the kids love the tiger. Anyway you don’t see most of them depending on what she is wearing. The thing I like about both of their tats is none of them have color. I don’t think Angie nor Brad have any color ink. And They both have tats for each other and their children. Not bad. I could see some of the kids getting them when they are of age and others not maybe into it. Individual thing.

    I think Brad look amazing and yes HOT.. even better in motion. The man has a sexy gait. And his body is tight. Better than man half his age. I never get when people here claim he is not aging well.. I don’t know what scale they are using but this man is hot for any age.

  7. Talie says:

    That girl is probably the daughter of Angelina’s long-time assistant.

  8. Ag says:

    my toddler son is also obsessed with my tattoos. when he was really little, he wanted to eat them. now he wants to scratch them off sometimes. :)

  9. serena says:

    Could be Maddox’s girlfriend, seems about the same age. Aww I love reading Jolie-Pitt’s gossip!

    • Kim1 says:

      That same girl has been pictured with them for years.I remember seeing her in Prague when AJ was directing her first film.I believe she is a friend of Zahara.
      As for tattoos Brad has more than Angie.
      US(eless) Weekly never has any real insider info.We have seen many pics of the kids with fake tattoos including Zahara just weeks ago.
      In great news Maleficent Worldwide BO is $436M it should surpass OZ this week .It has only been out less than a month.It already beat Snow

  10. Alarive says:

    I hope my kids will be as obsessed about my piercings phase. I used to get a new one almost every month or so, sometimes repiercing the same body part if the first attempt failed. Only three remain now, all hidden. It will be nice to make them understand that tattoos and piercings are not a gauge on which to measure and judge others.

  11. Kali says:

    Yes, Brad IS Mr Dame Angie. Because the lower-ranked person takes on the name/title of the higher-ranked person when they’re together…. ;)

  12. Andrea1 says:

    Brad doesn’t look 50 at all!
    He looks super hot and sexy for his age.

  13. Rose says:

    Interesting that we only see Shiloh when she travels with the whole family. We never see her alone with her mother. I guess that`s probably because she has some problem with her passport.

    • Emma - the JP Lover says:

      @Rose, who wrote: “Interesting that we only see Shiloh when she travels with the whole family. We never see her alone with her mother. I guess that`s probably because she has some problem with her passport.”

      Shiloh has spent time with Angie (sometimes alone, but mostly with Ms. Zee). Google is our friend. :)

    • Kim1 says:

      Zahara and Maddox took this trip.Where was your concern when AJ took Zahara and Shiloh to Amsterdam. Were you upset for Pax ?Brad took Shiloh and Zahara to Spain. Were you concerned about Maddox?

      • Rose says:

        Amesterdam? that was a long time ago. I was just asking. You dont need to be angry because I asked about the Golden Child also known as the Blob . I like Pax .He is so cool.

      • Jen2 says:

        @ Rose. Gwen Stefanie also called her child a “blob” so….. We don’t see pap photos of any of the children much, (except when traveling) alone with their parents or otherwise. The rare lone traveler is Maddox (though Pax went with Brad during WWZ promotion to Asia), otherwise, they seem to go in twos, threes, fours or more.

      • Rose says:

        Whats the problem with the brangaloonies? I didnt know that she was canonized by the Pope. So , since she is a “Dame”, she cant be criticised ? Good Lord. Thats what I call Staning.

      • abby says:

        @ Rose.

        Oh yes, “The Blob” LOL!!!
        I loved that endearment. Cause newborns do sort of just blob around don’t they? Unlike older babies who can lift their head, roll over, crawl, etc. Poor Angie, only having Z and Madd at the time, she never had a newborn prior to Shi and had no idea of the taboo – **whispers** never call the baby a blob. and boy didn’t people go nuts.

        Oh the memories!

        Keep driving them batty Angie.

        ETA: and Rose, please do not be obtuse “that Angie cannot be criticized.” As though the internet is not teeming with websites full of vile, slanderous invective about this woman, and where an endless free-for-all is zealously encouraged.
        CB is one of the few places where her fans can post somewhat peacefully, and it’s not as though there are not dissenting voices.
        No one is denying your freedom to criticize but please do not act as though you are being persecuted.

      • The Original G says:

        I don’t understand your comment? How does a passport issue affect who a person can travel with? i.e. they can travel with their whole family and not their mother? Could you explain that?

      • lisa2 says:


        actually you seem to be throwing a lot of untrue things as fact. Angelina never called Shiloh a blob.. the interviewer made a comment that newborns were kind of a blob; she didn’t say the word but that obviously was not the story that has been thrown out.

        so your aka the blob is wrong.. You can call the fans loonie if you like. I guess a part of posting is YES you can have your opinion and others have a right to state their opinion of yours.

        I get you are not a fan; fine.. but maybe deal in opinions based on facts and not fake gossip would be best.

      • Bennard says:

        @Rose you sound ridiculous you made statements that are not true and they are correcting you and then you say what’s wrong with the brangeloonies. God I hate that term. And who says you can’t criticize AJ and what are you going on about shiloh’s passport??
        You need to chill.

      • Kim1 says:

        Oh I am not angry @Rose just curious why the concern is always about Shiloh’s whereabouts .She is one of six JP kids.I see you brought up some BS from over seven years ago .Do you call Kingston a Blob because Gwen did.

  14. Tiffany says:

    And what a week it was – Angelina launched an enormously successful Global Summit and she was made an honorary Dame by Queen Elizabeth. Perfection. Black sacks for everyone!

    This Kaiser is why I Love You.

  15. Tippy says:

    Does she still have the “Property of Billy Bob” tat ?

  16. bettyrose says:

    Since I have tats but no children, I mostly clicked to scan the comments for anything saying tats are a bad influence on children. Just out of curiosity because I’ve heard that comment before. I do advise youngsters (those over 18) to only get tats that can be covered up at interviews until they’re professionally established (and, obviously, to take it seriously as a lifetime commitment) but otherwise I see no reason kids shouldn’t let their fantasies take hold. It’s cool to make adulthood seem fun rather than a terrifying future of grunt work and crushing responsibility (as it was presented to me as a child).

  17. andypandy says:

    Whats with the straight weave/extensions in Zaharas hair ??? esp when she she has the most beautiful Ethiopian curls !
    Yes some Black women wear extensions rarely is it ever used in 10 yr old childs hair.This seeming assimilation of eurocentric ideals of hair /beauty is not good and is something often not dealt with properly by some parents of kids who are biracial or transnational adoptions

    • Hissyfit says:

      I bet you were the first to complain when Jolie left Zahara’s curly hair free and wild. And now she did something which if I remember correctly, she mentioned in a maleficent interview that her daughter requested still makes her a bad / ignorant mother. Dame Jolie can never win.

      • andypandy says:

        @hissyfit “I bet you were the first to complain when Jolie left Zahara’s curly hair free and wild” ..Uhm NO I m actually a big fan of free natural curls that fact that you also use “wild” to describe Zahara’s hair is well …telling
        when a white mother has a black child asking for “hair like yours ” it is a perfect teaching moment to say you dont have hair like mine yours is beautiful in its own way (which it is ) rather than putting a jacked up weave in a 10 yr CHILDS hair
        But as alluded to by another poster above anything that isnt 100% fawning about Angie( who I Like actually) is sure to bring out a ” hissyfit

      • Hissyfit says:

        Lol. I like Jolie but I could care less if people dislike her – after all, it’s her haters, not mine. I just don’t get why you’re so upset over a child’s hair that doesn’t even belong to you.

        Did it ever occur to you that she probably told her daughter that her natural, curly hair is just perfect and beautiful as her mother’s or sisters but she didn’t care and still insists on having her hair done? Of course it didn’t. Because you strongly believe that Jolie is discouraging her daughter in accepting her “true beauty” according to your book, right? And why does it matter? The kid looks very happy and seems to love her new hair. Maybe she’ll take it off (if it’s really a weave) once she gets sick and tired of it. What’s the big deal?

    • Kim1 says:

      It’s not a weave.Millions of Black girls with Black parents have their hair straightened. This has nothing to do with transracial adoption.Zahara looks lovely with straight and curly hair.

      • andypandy says:

        Please its a weave (which is different from straightening hair) its even more obvious in this earlier CB post


      • Kim1 says:

        If you are so concerned about Black girls hair post your concerns on urban blogs.Stop trying to make this an issue with just Black girls with White mothers. Zahara looks fantastic.

      • BNA FAN says:

        I believe ZZ is wearing a clip on hair extension. Clip it on, clip it off, just for style. Also little black girls wear extensions for length when wearing brads, no big deal.

        I believe the little girl in the pictures with Angie and family is the daughter Of one of her body guards.

      • abby says:

        ITA BNA FAN.

        Considering AJ is very low maintenance (and tends to keep the kids that way as well) I do not see her going with a full on weave. A clip-on is more AJ’s style imo, easy on and easy off. Simple. It reminds me of those blue little braids Z had in for a few days or so and then they were out in no time.

        Z strikes me as though she likes experimenting with her look (within boundaries of course) – she has her own style with clothes and I think she enjoys trying different things with her hair (but I do not think anything permanent or weave-like has been done).

        And really, too many people want to make hair extensions about insecurity. Sure, that can be one reason but it’s not the only reason. Besides, it’s not only women of color who wear them so why should that be their only motivation? Am I to assume that white women who wear extensions are insecure too? That does not apply to everyone so please do not paint an entire race of women with that brush.
        Some people actually see it as embellishment/playing dress up. And frankly, given all the tattoos (real and fake), face-paints, nail polish and hair dyes these kids already wear – not to mention their parents are frequently in costume – a little clip-in hair extension is not exactly earth shattering or unexpected.
        I am sure Z will be back to her darling curls once she gets bored with it.

        ETA: Z is not the only person of colour in her family. She has Ethiopian cousins adopted by Brad’s sister and of course one of their nannies is a woman of color. Granted, that is not ideal but it’s not as though she is isolated from people of similar background to herself.

    Angie got her left shoulder and back tattoos from Thailand though.Same place where Michelle and Cara went on their thai vacation.


  19. Paige says:

    Gosh I cant get over how defensive some fans are. So intolerant of another’s opinion! Not everyone sees AJ in the same light. Hopefully some good comes out of this Summit as I believe Angie is well meaning but at the same time there are those who love the world stage and are only there for the exposure. Will anything get done? One can only hope.

    • Cecilia says:

      Hopefully they got the ball rolling. I wonder how long we will have to wait to find anything out — what action is going to be taken.

      • abby says:

        Damned if they tell us and damned if they do not.

        If they publicize their progress – people like Paige will accuse AJ and others of famewhoring and being there entirely for the exposure.
        If they keep it quiet and simply allow the legal framework to take its course (which could take years to bring offenders to trial) then people will say they failed and this Summit was nothing but a bunch of grandstanding.

        Personally, I hope they achieved they goals – only one of which was to determine a universal protocol to collecting samples in the field from survivors. Samples that could be used as evidence given the limited conditions. This is one of the major problems when rape kits are not available in the middle of a warzone and as a result there is a lack of physical evidence (little or no DNA, semen, etc) to prosecute the offenders and eye witness accounts can be shaky or hard to come by. It makes a guilty verdict that much difficult to achieve. The gang rapes are exponentially worse.
        Whether the public is updated or not,, I hope the objectives are successfully implemented and progress made on this longstanding issue.

        @ abby

        I must say I enjoy reading your posts very much.

        I think it’s funny that the person “concerned” about Shiloh not traveling with her mother is curiously leaving the father out of the equation.
