Is Angelina erasing Brad?
Following her shock divorce announcement, Angelina Jolie’s said to be considering a major move
No sooner had we recovered from tom and taylor’s split than brangelina came along and broke our hearts too. angelina Jolie filed for divorce from 52-yearold brad Pitt just days after the pair’s second wedding anniversary. and insiders say ange, 41, is taking charge of the situation by erasing brad from her body for good.
‘ange’s tattoos are very symbolic for her. she’s a passionate soul who leads with her heart and loves dramatic displays of affection when she’s in love,’ says our source. ‘it’s the ultimate statement of love and dedication. sadly, not for the first time in her life, she’s thinking of having the procedure reversed.’
angelina has already had one of her rumoured 17 tattoos removed. after getting hitched to actor billy bob thornton in 2000, ange had his name and a dragon inked on her left arm. but following their 2003 divorce the actress had it erased and later covered with a new design, reportedly the coordinates of her children’s births and brad’s too, inked by ajarn noo kanpai, a longtime friend of ange. ajarn claims his tattoos can spiritually protect a person, adding: ‘i don’t know if my work has helped angelina in her life but i hope so. i hope they have blessed her.’
in february, ange flew him to cambodia to tattoo her and brad on set – hers were two inkings on her back, while brad was said to have had a buddhist symbol tattooed on his stomach. it’s these declarations of love that ange is apparently ready to get rid of – not that it will be a quick and easy process, as dr tijion esho of le beau ideal explains: ‘during treatment, pulses of light from the laser breaks down the ink. it can be painful, depending on the size and colour, and can take several sessions, four to six weeks apart.’
‘i think ange wants this done as soon as possible,’ says our source. ‘she’s insists the pain is worth it in order to erase any negativity. it seems final, but she’s an all-ornothing kind of woman.’
