Jolie inks two new swirl tattoos around Roman numeral on left arm
Posted July 6, 2010on:
Angelina Jolie has added two new swirl tattoos to an old Roman numeral tattoo on her left arm.
Jolie flashed her new tattoos at the premiere of ””””Salt”””” in Cancun, Mexico.
The 35-year-old actress had the Roman number 13 inked because she doesn””””t believe in superstition, reports the New York Daily News.
She later added V MCMXL to the end of it to signify the date of Winston Churchill””””s famous speech on May 13, 1940 in which he said: “I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat.”
Though swirl tattoos can have a variety of meanings, Jolie””””s could be a Tibetan “heading” swirl, which acts to accentuate the importance of a character.
The fact that it sits over both halves of the Roman numeral tattoo could mean the actress simply wants to underscore its meaning.
