Kanpai had already tattooed Jolie twice before, on her shoulder in 2003 and her lower back in 2004. This time, the 40-year-old and her husband, who also has previous ink, opted for something new, which holds special significance in light of Jolie's recent health struggles. As Radar reported, she recently had both her breasts and her ovaries removed upon learning that she carries genes that leave her predisposed to cancer.

“The tattoos are composed of grids with pyramids at the top… they help to give the wearer protection and health,” an insider said.

Brad liked his wife's tattoos so much, like this one on her shoulder, that he also got a Thai Buddhist symbol inked on his ribcage, just below his previous tattoo, which says “We live, we die, we know not why, but I’ll be with you."

The tattoos were made not with tattoo guns, but rather, were hand-poked with bamboo tubes and sterilized needles, Woman's Day reports.
