Tattoos of Brad Pitt
William Bradley Pitt, whose stage name is Brad Pitt, under the influence of his wife Angelina Jolie, has been tattooing for many years. Let us find out the secrets of his tattoos together.
It seems that the famous Hollywood actor Brad Pitt's tattoo was born out of love. It looks like that he became passionate about artistic tattoos when he began a romantic relationship with the tattoo angel Angelina Jolie in 2005. Some of his tattoos are absolutely top notch, even if the number is no more than 8, his tattoos have caused a lot of discussions about him and his true passion. Although some are still a mystery.
Brad Pitt was born in Oklahoma, but grew up in a rural area of Springfield, Missouri. Most of his youth was surrounded by nature and developed a kind of influence on it. Great love also produces a kind of "addiction." Pitt claimed that he couldn't bear staying indoors for long periods of time, and he felt the need to go out.
Brad Pitt’s Nature Tattoos
The great enthusiasm for Brad is what prompted him to get at least three tattoos.
The first one is a number, or more precisely: “94.4m”. The height of the largest sequoia in the Sierra Nevada (not yet named) far exceeds the famous General Sherman Tree. This tattoo is located on the forearm and expresses Pitt's respect for the trees.
The second one is on the back and is a series of horizontal lines, some of which are connected together while others are separated from each other. They will represent part of a map of New Orleans to commemorate the tragic experience of Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
Pitt's third and most iconic Mother Nature tattoo is on his left forearm.
Brad Pitt’s Ötzi Tattoo
Represents the stylized silhouette of Ötzi. The Similaun mummy is a very important anthropological discovery. It was discovered in 1991 in the Veneste Alps on the border between Italy and Tyrol in Austria, which happened to be in Oetztal in the province of Bolzano.
Ötzi is also known as the "Iceman" and is widely known among tattoo artists all over the world because he is believed to be the first tattooed man to be discovered. In fact, he seems to have 60 tattoos on his body.
Pitt pays tribute to nature in this situation, and also to artistic tattoos and their long history. Ötzi is actually more than 5,000 years old! Brad Pitt's tattoo bears the words "absurd existence" or "absurdity of existence".
Brad Pitt's Other Tattoos
Under the tattoo of the mummy, we found another Latin book tattoo: "Invictus".
It literally means "never fail" and is dedicated to Nelson Mandela, who drew inspiration from the verses of the poem of the same name composed by the British poet William Ernest Henley to alleviate the pain of his long imprisonment during apartheid. Invictus is also the title of Clint Eastwood's 2009 film, which is adapted from John Carlin's novel Playing the Enemy: Nelson Mandela and the Game That Made a Nation.
Among Pitt's tattoos, the most eye-catching tattoo is definitely the one covering the wrist and left hand. It is about a tribe, and Pitt never reveals its meaning.
Finally, inside the right arm, there is an excerpt from the English in the poem of Gialal al-Din Rumi, a Persian poet living in the Middle East in the 23rd century: "There exists a field, beyond all notions of right and wrong. I will meet you there." Similarly, for this kind of tattoo, we don't know the true meaning, and the most important thing is who these words refer to.
