Jolie flew tattoo artist and ex Thai monk Ajarn Noo Kanpai to Cambodia when she was directing her film, First They Killed My Father, to work on the matching ink for she and Pitt, as their marriage was crumbling in February 2016.

Jolie had three new "mystical sak yant" back tattoos, according to reports. She sat with the artist to have the elaborate ink painted on her during a lengthy procedure.

Kanpai used the ancient handheld method for the process, a procedure considering more painful since the artist uses steel rods mounted with a surgical steel needle.

Jolie had the art placed in the middle of her back, while Pitt had Kanpai tattoo the left side of his stomach with a Buddhist symbol.
