Billy Bob Thornton and Angelina Jolie’s brief relationship in the early 2000s was distinguished by their intense and unorthodox love. Their matching tattoos, among the many other features of their love, attracted a lot of attention. As a sign of their close relationship, Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton are known for getting tattoos of one other’s names on their bodies.
This special and audacious act of love came to represent their close bond and readiness to express their love in front of others. Their love story—tattoos and all—remains an iconic tale in the annals of Hollywood.
Angelina Jolie Billy Bob Tattoo
Although Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton split after just two years of marriage, she nonetheless received permanent ink to symbolize the union. She had a tattoo of a dragon on her left arm with the words “Billy Bob” above it.
Naturally, she was left with the difficult chore of taking down the provocative artwork after they split up. Jolie said of the incident, “I’ll never be stupid enough to have a man’s name tattooed on me again.”
Even Jolie was taken aback by the breakup with Thornton. She told Vogue (via E! News), “It took me by surprise, too, because overnight, we totally changed.” She added that because of their hard-acting schedules, they were separated for months at a time, and during that time, they developed in separate directions to the point that there was no longer any sense of a connection.
She said, “I think one day we just had nothing in common.” She then cleverly designed a succession of fresh tattoos to cover up the “Billy Bob” artwork.
The Coordinates of Each of Angelina Jolie’s Children Are Now Permanently Inked on Her Body
The actress first had the tattoo as much as possible removed from her left arm before getting a replacement for the one she received for Billy Bob Thornton. Of course, it wasn’t quite gone, so she covered the remaining pieces with the latitude and longitude of the places where her children and her ex-husband, Brad Pitt, were born.
The “Tomb Raider” actress knows the coordinates for the birthplaces of Zahara Jolie-Pitt in Ethiopia and Maddox Jolie-Pitt in Cambodia. The site of Shiloh Jolie-Pitt’s birthplace in Namibia is shown after that. Jolie gave birth to her there.
The location of Knox and Vivienne Jolie-Pitt’s birth in France is next, followed by Pax Jolie-Pitt’s coordinates for Vietnam. Last but not least, she also has a tattoo with Brad’s Oklahoma location on her arm. There is undoubtedly enough there to hide the old dragon.
This wasn’t the actor from “Fight Club”‘s only tattoo, though. According to The Sun, Jolie had intricate tattoos on her back in Thailand in 2016 that represented her relationship with Brad.
If the tattoos are a mistake, “you can always cover them up,” Thornton said in jest. Thornton stated that if one needed to conceal a lot of skin, they may create their own flag or cover faults with flesh color. Well, that’s a thought! He is not far from the grid of Jolie’s birthplace.
