Brad Pitt got a new forearm tattoo to honor Angelina & the kids: sweet?

Last weekend, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie made two big public outings. They took their kids to an ice skating rink and then they took the kids to Subway (you can see some photos here). Those pics were pretty exclusive so that’s why I didn’t post them! Anyway, it took several days for news outlets to really analyze the crap out of the pics and finally realize that Brad is sporting a new tattoo these days! You can see it on the Twitter photo above – it’s on his right forearm.

The tattoo seems to be a line up his forearm, with an “A” for Angelina on one side of the line, then the first-name initials of all six kids on the other side of the line. The initials are in descending order of age – MPZSVK. Vivienne is older than Knox? I think I remember that – Vivienne is a few minutes older than her twin. It’s sweet, but I still think my favorite kid-related tattoo art is Angelina’s tattoo on her left bicep with the coordinates for all six kids’ birth places. The last set of coordinates – which I only recently found out she added – is for Brad’s birthplace in Oklahoma. I still think that’s really cool! But A || MPZSVK is pretty cool too.

We actually get some requests here and there for more tattoo coverage, but in all honesty, I rarely pay attention to celebrity tattoos unless they’re really bad or really good. Brad has so many tattoos, just like Angelina. He also has some of Angelina’s drawings (??) I think made into a tattoo. He has Angelina’s birthdate tattooed on his torso. And he has this Rumi quote on his right arm: “There exists a field, beyond all notions of right and wrong. I will meet you there.” Perhaps the best one is Angelina’s inner thigh tattoo, Whiskey Bravo, for William Bradley. . TATTOOS.

    Brad also got a haircut, looks like. Happy about that. My favorite tattoo one of them has is probably Whiskey Bravo- I think that’s so cute

    • Maya says:

      Yeah – but got a haircut and that’s all it took for him to look hot and handsome. No beauty treatments or anything is needed fir Brad – a simple haircut.

      Lucky lucky Angelina…

      • qwerty says:

        lmao you gotta be kidding. He’s had fillers and all kinds of tretments for his face. There was a time a year or 2 ago when he was looking very puffy (didn’t gain weight though) and lots of people commented on it. Also, sometime in the past 2 years he was papped leaving some sort of beauty place, Lainey posed those shots and then had to remove them cause the agency got a call about them. So, yeah…

      • Artemis says:

        Oh qwerty, these lies. You know that celebs just happen to age less quickly and just happen to be naturally slender/toned. There’s is absolutely 0 effort to their looks and their resources have nothing to do with their ‘lucky genes’. Nothing whatsoever.

      • lisa2 says:

        So true Maya.. he does look great..

      • V4Real says:


        Opening the flood gates huh?
        But yeah Brad has had things done to his face. Even someone as handsome as Brad needs help maintaining his looks.

      • Emma - the JP Lover says:

        @Qwerty, who wrote: “Also, sometime in the past 2 years he was papped leaving some sort of beauty place, Lainey posed those shots and then had to remove them cause the agency got a call about them. So, yeah…”

        What ‘agency’ are you talking about?

      • pwal says:


        That instance from two years about was during the filming of Fury. Yes, his face looked fuller, but his body was beefier too. Still shredded, but nice and… it was damn nice!

      • minx says:

        I don’t know or care what he is doing to look good–just keep doing it!
        He has a fulfilling career, a dynamic partner and great kids, and it shows. He’s happy.

      • qwerty says:

        The photo agency that Lainey got the pics from.

        No, he didn’t look puffy cause he got “beefier”, it was fillers. Here’s a pic from 2012

      • qwerty says:

        Another pics from that year cmon. Do you also believe he naturally has those blonde highlights while hi facial hair has been grey for like 8 years now?

      • Neah23 says:

        @ qwerty

        I don’t know if he had work done or not, but in the links you posted Brad also looks heavier/ Buff in this photo than he dose in the nose post above. So those are not good examples of what you are trying to prove.

        In regards his hair or guys facial hair in general. A man can have gray facial hair without having their hair being gray it’s a fact. Just like my grandma for example, is 80 and only has a patch of gray while the rest of her hair is its national black color.

      • V4Real says:

        Oh guys please. Brad has had work done just like a lot of aging celebs. Brad and AJ are not above this no matter how great we think they are

      • gina87 says:

        So true- despite trying to “prove” Brad’s all fake young one day (no fillers- look at ALL the pictures from that set- geez) and saying the NEXT DAY that he’s too old to be allowed to live, he keeps being alive & HAPPY. And looking great, IMO. However, the only person who need to like how Brad looks is Angie & she seems to like him okay– through long hair, shaved head, weird beards, dark hair (for role) and grey hair. She actually even says that she loves him- hmmmm- let’s give it 10 more years & we MIGHT believe her. It’s so rude of Hollywood to keep paying this old man money and for him to keep succeeding- he should have been frozen at 30 and made the naysayers happy- it’s very rude of Brad to live his life & AGE- the nerve!

      • Bridget says:

        I’m a little confused. Is ‘Hollywood star gets fillers and colors his hair’ a debate?

      • qwerty says:


        That argument makes perfect sense….I might as well say his highlights are natural cause my dog has grey hair only under her chin.

        He’s a 50 y.o. man,a smoker at that, with no nasolabial folds. Let’s be real here.×1024.jpg

      • Suzanne says:

        After reading what confirmed my suspicions about him being grungy in the personal hygiene department….I no longer consider him hot or even remotely sexy. They both strike me as greasy…and in need of their hair being washed.

      • Anna says:

        Thank you Cleo (the page wouldn’t let me reply to your post directly)! 🙂

      • qwerty says:


        It is but only because it’s a man we’re talking about. Apparently women are all fake, starving lying plastic dolls while men just happen to age like fine wine.

    • Anna says:

      Could someone please explain the meaning of “Whiskey Bravo” to me?
      I’m not a native speaker and I don’t get it at all. Thanks so much!

      • Cleo says:

        Hi Anna,

        ‘Whiskey Bravo,’ means letters W and B in what I think is military lingo. Over the air/radio when youre calling things in you say words when calling in plane numbers or car license plates so the person on other end won’t mistake a B for a D fir instance. William Bradley, WB are Brad’s name/initials.

        Also to people yapping about Brad’s beautiful face that is still devastatingly handsome. Yea its well knownknown that Brad had bad skin when he started out, and continued to, early in his career…in fact when he was with Aniston they BOTH got some award from an HD society as having the worst skin in HD. They both had facial, presumably laser treatments, I think it was the one area they had common ground in. Maybe still share a dermatologist or facialiat to this day, both have improved skin due to resyracing treatments.

        Regarding Brad, I believe that’s the extent of it. Its clear in pics that he has wrinkles and as for nasal labial folds – many people with thicker skin prone to cystic acne dontbhave them, or its just genetics. If you didnt have them at 35 they won’t be way deep at 50. Some kids even have nasal labial folds. Its just DNA not even necessarily a sign of age.

      • Doodle says:

        In Chinese face reading, nasal labial lines are called purpose lines. They show you’re living in accordance with your life’s purpose.

  2. Nev says:

    Big Daddy YUM.

  3. Toot says:

    That tat is sweet, but not really new. I think I first noticed it at least a year ago.

    • jen2 says:

      Yes, I agree. I remember seeing it during the beer toss in New Orleans last year with Matthew Mc. Very Sweet, very Brad, but not new.

    • neer says:

      I agree. I think the news are somewhat late already in noticing Brad’s so-called latest tattoo for his family. Many fans have already mentioned about this two years ago. It is not the first time that his forearm tattoo is seen by keen observers. Nevertheless, I love it.

      My favorite tattoos on AJ & BP are (because I really find them romantic & I love its significance) :

      1) Angelina’s birthdate (June 4, 1975) tattooed on Brad’s torso written in Khmer (their Cambodian son first language);

      2) Whiskey Bravo tattooed on Angelina’s upper, inner inner thigh. It’s in military code that refers to William Bradley, the real name of Brad Pitt.

    • Catelina says:

      Oh really? Haha I feel so oblivious for never noticing it before. Then again, new tattoos aren’t something I generally pick up on.

      • janeh says:

        Unlike so many “stars” neither Brad or Angie have PR, purposefully go to pap parading around for coffee & clothes, and/or have social media so that they can instagram their every move. If you look at pictures, you could have seen it long ago, but it’s okay that you missed it. The media ALWAYS tries to diminish/suppress anything cute or positive about Brad, Angie or their kids- instead, they manufacture lies and spread awful rumors about them- it’s the price they pay for making the PR world (which is clearly in bed with the media) so angry by not having PR.

      • jen2 says:

        @janeh. It is like Angelina changing her name. No muss, no fuss, no pronouncements, no press releases. Just appearing in all her official media and press. Some (especially tabloids and gossips) have not noticed that either.

      • minx says:

        jen2–she changed her name? To what? I missed this.

      • jen2 says:

        @minx: All of her official media in the past few months has her name as Angelina Jolie Pitt. It is how Universal stated her name in the preview information about By the Sea and all of her UN work and in People mag articles.

      • minx says:

        Thanks jen2, I didn’t see that.

    • V4Real says:

      Wow I never noticed it before. Still it’s a sweet gesture for the one you love but , yes there’s a but, it’s not an attractive tattoo.

      At least he only put her initial. You know a lot of people frown on other people tattooing their SO or spouse name on their body.

  4. Jules181 says:

    He’s had that tattoo for at least a couple of years and it reads A MPZSKV because Knox is older than Vivi by a few minutes.

  5. Luca76 says:

    They are such a great couple. There isn’t much more to say about them anymore because they seem so steady and happy good stuff!

    • Erin says:

      They do seem like a nice couple, but I’ve never found him to be good looking. His face is naturally very jowly. Work he’s had done on his face has probably been to try to correct that particular feature. As for his acting, I don’t think I’ve seen any of his films. He doesn’t make the kind of movies I care anything about.

      • Cleo says:

        No offense Erin, but I find some people today don’t really know what words actually mean..”jowly?” Jowly means loose, saggy, hanging flesh offthe jaws…it can be connected to a double chin, and often is because overweight people and overweight older people often have jowls. But jowls are loose.

        That said, I think u see where I’m headed.

        Brad Pitt has a very defined jawline, it’s why people liken him to Redford who today at damn near 80, barely has a jowl. When you have a strong jaw, your bones hold your skin up and those folks typically will never see a jowl form in their lifetime.

        I think you mean to say brad has pronounced jaws, NOT jowls. A defined or large jaw is preferable, especially if you’re a man.

  6. Mrs. Ari Gold says:

    It’s a cross – isn’t it? I know they may be agnostic or even atheist but this looks like a cross to me. It looks hot! And it’s so sweet!

    • Maya says:

      Comment deleted

    • BNA FN says:

      It’s not a cross. From what I remember it has something to do with trees in the redwood forest, his favorite place, he says. I believe The newest tattoo is “There exists a field, beyond all notions of right or wrong. I’ll meet you there”. Angelina has that same tattoo. I remember seeing that tat while they were in Australia.

      • lisa2 says:

        I don’t think her tat says the same. IIRC one of the fans translated it and it is a Rumi quote but not the same one.

    • xboxsucks says:

      It s a variety of tree, i dont remember the name and the measure are from the longest one on earth

  7. Flounder says:

    MEh. He’s cute either way

  8. xboxsucks says:

    That sweet and all but the only tatoo i will get is one honouring myself(i shouldnt give Kim kardashian ideas).

    • Jib says:

      Really. What happens if there is a divorce?? And I am saying this being married 28 years. I would never get my husband’s name on my body. One never knows, and then you are stuck with that unless you want the pain and expense of lasering it off.

      Nope, no man’s name on me. Maybe my kids, though.

  9. Maya says:

    I love the picture of them when Angelina was heavily pregnant with the twins and wore that beautiful green grown – she looked stunning and glowingly happy. Every time I see that dress I also remember the story Jack Black’s wife (who is a good friend of Angelina’s) said – how when she said she liked the grown, Angelina gave it to her as a gift.

    The tattoo actually looks like a tree (family tree) more than a cross – maybe he wants to add his future grandchildren’s names under the children’s names.

    I am not a fan of tattoos but I have always loved Angelina’s children’s and Brad’s birth coordinations – very touching and unique.

    PS: when will the trailer for By The Sea release? I don’t think I can wait any longer…

  10. Shambles says:

    I didn’t know he had a tattoo of a Rumi quote. Right on! Rumi is my go-to for inspiration.

  11. Sparkly says:

    I didn’t know he had a Rumi tat! That’s one of my favorite verses, although I think I like the Coleman Barks translation better.

    • lower-case deb says:

      didn’t Angelina had that same phrase but in Arabic script?

      some gossip blog (can’t remember which) said that it was a “couples tattoo” for their wedding, only that AJ has it in Arabic and BP has it in English?

      • Neah23 says:

        Yes she does I think it was pointed out around the same time the media figured out what Brads ment.

  12. lisa2 says:

    The tat is at least 2 years old. I remember seeing the lines when he was in Paris promoting WWZ.. That is not a cross.. it is a tree..

    Regarding their tats.. I want know what the one his tummy says and he has one on the back of his calf muscle.. that is one I have only seen a few times.

    and Brad did get a haircut. You can’t see in these pics.. but the ones when they were at Subway.

    • lisa2 says:

      just checked it is for a Sequoia tree. This is what he said in Details about it…

      “I will always be most comfortable in the outdoors. I grew up in the Ozarks — something resembling Mark Twain country. The woods, rivers, bluffs, lakes, and caves have all left an indelible mark on me,” the 50-year-old actor explains. “And I’m quite reverential when it comes to a tree. On my forearm, I had tattooed 94.9m (311.4ft) — the height of the largest sequoia.”

      • Esmom says:

        Lol, I don’t know…the idea of the tree measurement as a tattoo makes me laugh. A little bit cheesy. And I’m NOT a Brad hater. So his tattoo of AJ and the kids initials isn’t a tree then? Because it does look more like a cross of some sort to me.

  13. really says:

    Knox IS older than Viv and that is reflected in Brad’s tattoo- he should know, he was there! Not sure where you got the mixed up order, probably from the same tabloids that are only noticing it years later. The press almost always lies, gets stuff wrong about Brad & Angie, but facts can be found.

    Dr. Sussman says the baby’s father, actor Brad Pitt, was instrumental in the birthing process, and that he even cut the babies’ umbilical cords. Sussman said Pitt never left Jolie’s side, joking, quote, “He was my assistant.” He also described Pitt as “very moved and very emotional” at the birth of his children. A birth certificate displayed at the press conference indicated that Knox was born at 6:27 p.m. on July 12th and that Vivienne arrived a minute later.

  14. Peggy says:

    That tattoo is over two years, and V is the last letter on it.
    He had the tree first and people were calling it a cross, then he had letters.
    After ten years of writing BS, the tabloids are running out of ideas, and they wrote some wild stories.

  15. bns says:

    My favorite Angelina tattoo is “Know Your Rights”.

  16. Vampi says:

    They are BOTH my forever crush. *sigh*

    • Shambles says:

      Seriously, they’re SO HOT. It’s abnormal. But you won’t hear me complaining. *swoon*

    • minx says:

      Me too. I never thought that much about him before he got with Angelina; thought he was sort of a Ken doll. AJ I always liked, although I didn’t really follow her. But when the two of them got together, wow. Spontaneous combustion.

      • jen2 says:

        I did not think much of either of them. I agree that he seemed like a Ken doll to Aniston’s Barbie, but Angelina was a bit too out there with Thornton. Then they both shed their baggage, got together and Boom.

      • KellyBee says:

        I’m felt the same way and yes ken doll was a perfect word for it. I thought he was too pretty before for my taste I didn’t get it until I saw him in Oceans/Mr & Mrs Smith movies on w I do.

      • Cleo says:

        Maybe I’m older than you Jen2, but having been around back in the olden days of Brad and Jen, I can tell you almost NO ONE thought of Aniston as a “barbie,” (to Pitt’s Ken). Aniston looked even more like Dustin Hoffman in tootsie then, than she does now. Just stating facts.

        Everyone knew Pitt was considered the pretty/or beautiful one in the relationship. Brad was seen as having done the meh TV girl who wasn’t a movie star a favor. Many practically said this to Aniston’s face. Also… Remember what Kim Stewart said when they split that got everyone in an uproar? They were in an uproar because it was true and sheshe rudely said it aloud. Lol

        Aniston, on the other hand, had bagged the #1sex symbol movie star and all around great guy. He was nice, and not shalllow or superficial bec he didn’t care about the fact she wasn’t beautiful and wasn’t a movie star.

        Also, no one really thought of Pitt as a Ken doll, yes he was quite handsome-beautiful, but his rep from movies like seven, snatch, fight club even legends had him playing guy guys with grit, not refined perfect people.

      • SunnyD says:

        Cleo – you’re stating your opinion, not a fact.

        I am not particularly a fan of Jolie, Pitt or Aniston but I don’t recall Aniston being the “meh TV girl” at the time they got together. She was probably the biggest star of probably the biggest TV show in the world. The pretty girl next door who married a handsome pretty boy actor. I can remember genuine media excitement when they released their wedding pictures – I think they only released two.

      • Cleo says:


        You’re confused sunny, I’m sharing a consensus, which yes, I do happen to agree with – about the perception of aniston and her ensemble tv sit com fame at the time.

        They got together in 1998 and split in 2004. Do u really think the ‘friends,’ tv sitcom was some worldwide phenom back then? You can use adjectives like pretty all u want, but even aniston (and her mom) will tell u that’s not true, and not how she was perceived. Its a major reason she started dropping trou and icing nips. Kudrow was getting emmy nods, and Courtney cox was seen as the beautiful one, so her ‘thing,’ becamebecame baring her body – it deflected from her big nose, small beady eyes and very large leno-ish chin. Her rollinstone cover with the bare azz pre-dated Kim.kash.

        Point is, even as she was frantically trying to be the hot one going around bra less, she was still being told by interviewers, much to her rudely expressed horror, that she reminded them of Streisand.

        I actually think the younger Streisand was way more attractive than aniston, now THAT is my opinion. 😉

      • SunnyD says:

        Yes I do think it was a worldwide phenomenon. I am from London, it was huge here and it’s still on TV most days. I watched the last ever episode in a packed bar in a tiny town on the South Island in New Zealand in 2004. The only other communal viewing events I’ve experienced like that are World Cup football matches.

        I don’t have an opinion on Jennifer Aniston as a person but my point was that as the popular star of an incredibly popular TV show, she was more than just an obscure TV personality bagging a movie star.

  17. bettyrose says:

    I love the concept but as tats go this seems kinda bland, like a notebook doodle.

    • lisa2 says:

      I suppose…but sometimes the simplest things can be the most beautiful; especially when there is great meaning behind them.

    • I like Angelina’s better….I like words/script better than objects/things–which is what Brad has a lot. His are a lot more personal, I think, in terms of him knowing exactly what they are, versus the world being able to look at them and go…oh, that’s a flower or whatever.

      • Esmom says:

        Yes, it’s clear that his have deep meaning to him, which is sweet. An acquaintance recently posted on FB about her tattoo-acquiring experience and it seemed like she just went and picked something from the artists’s suggestions and then sort of made up a connection to how the image symbolized her love for her kids. Blah. She clearly cared more about getting a tattoo, any tattoo, than really commemorating anything important in ink.

  18. zut akors! says:

    Why was there such a big deal made of them going to Subway? It wasn’t their first time. Angelina has always struck me as being pretty down to earth even though she wears designer clothing and carries designer purses. She doesn’t seem to be disdainful of mixing with the hoi polloi.

    • KellyBee says:

      I have no clue. Just like the media is making a big deal out of Brads two year old tattoo and making it seem like its new.

    • pwal says:

      No, it wasn’t. They went to a Subway a couple of months ago and they’ve been to McDonalds, KFC, Taco Bell, etc. over the years. I’m sure this trip to Subway will earn Angelina on Star Magazines quarterly world’s worst celebrity mom cover, much like when the kids were spotted eating Cheetos or what not.

      Angelina has a regal air about her, but she is a human being, which the press seem to have a hard time accepting. I remember that Vogue article from years ago when the journalist was ‘utterly shocked’ to see Angelina eat a slice of pizza. I mean, like seriously?

      • minx says:

        She has good posture, something other women should emulate. Goopy, for example, is one who doesn’t stand up straight.
        Shoulders back, chest out, chin up.

    • Carmen says:

      Angie said in an interview a few years ago that one of her favorite places to eat is Taco Bell.

  19. Colette says:

    Like others have said ,he has had that tattoo for a couple of years.Yet I’m sure it won’t stop the clueless tabloids from writing some article about it.”After Angie slapped him and kicked him out for never telling her he slept with his prom date in 1980.He started crying,walked outside and jumped on his motorcycle.Days later he came back , apologized, and showed her the new tattoo.She admitted she overreacted and all is forgiven.Until they have another fight next week”

    • minx says:

      And then he called Jen and asked her to take him back.

    • jen2 says:

      He never just walks out, he “storms” out. And that fight will be the “fight that ends all fights”…until the next fight after they make up of course and call the divorce off then go adopt that Syrian child then travel over to Kenya for the Kenyan child and then she will be jealous of his next co-star and kick him out again and he storms out into the rain on his motorcycle until he comes home and begs for her forgiveness for something he never did. Always the same with a few tweaks.

    • Paige says:

      Thanks for the laugh 🙂

  20. Twink says:

    I like that they went to Subway, now I can say I eat at the same place Brad and Angie do! Lol Brad is just so hot, I can’t believe he’s 50ish.

  21. DiamondGirl says:

    I wonder if she still has that tattoo on her lower belly, or if the two c-sections messed with it. That’s pretty close to where the incisions would have been.

  22. Frank Gallagher says:

    Isn’t the skeleton one on arm his for Angie too?

  23. Vava says:

    I’m not into tats at all. Whatever floats your boat, though.

  24. naturegirl says:

    My Lady & my Movie Star boyfriend

  25. They are such a great couple.
    There isn’t much more to say about them anymore because they seem so steady and happy good stuff!

  26. K says:

    I wouldn’t call it sweet. I mean it’s a tattoo, it’s whatever, personally I don’t get the appeal of tattoos but if you like them have at them.

    What I think is sweet and admirable about Brad is he seems to really love being a dad and husband and is a hands on father & present partner at least from what I have gathered, no one rip me apart if I’m wrong.

    But to me it’s easy to get the tattoo but to be present and active and devoted to a family you created that is work and not easy and a lot more mentionable then a tattoo.

  27. MAC says:

    That is one of my favorite quotes.

  28. Courtney says:

    Angelina Jolie’s coordinate tattoo is actually on her deltoid not her bicep
