That is so un-feminine...

Tattoos probably look fashionable when you are young, but I gaurantee she will not be showing off her back when she is in the 60's...

Tatanka, how many women in their 60's show off their back, regardless of tatoos...?

Har! I often see this word.. what does it mean?

On TV they said this dress is Versace... I like the verse tattoo but not the picture tattoo. I would like to engrave a poem on my skin too.

The trouble with tats is that they're permanent and unmovable. There're probably some outfits she can wear that show them off tastefully, but what she's wearing in this pic isn't one of them. It's similar to if the top of her knickers was showing over her skirt, or her bra strap was showing. It looks thrown-together, with no thought to the overall effect.

Either show them properly, or cover them up.

What's wrong with a woman in her 60s showing her back? Don't 60-year-olds go to the pool, or the beach?

She once had a tatoo on her arm: "Billy Bob" referring to her ex-husband Billy Bob Thornton. It has since been lasered off and covered with a dragon tatoo, but it speaks volumes on her common sense to have been put there in the first place.

She was great in Mr.& Mrs. Smith:

Jolie ( after taking a few shots at hubby Brad with a shotgun ): Hey, baby, you still alive?

I wonder how many Japanese consider her a yakuza member cos of her tatts?

Had a sick armband put on in Thailand when I was young. Was kicked out of a few gyms in my time here too. Super black ink not dark blue....scared the Japanese to death. Ten years later my kid was being born and I wanted it removed. Its called a YAG laser and black ink takes about 5 sessions over a course of 8-10 months to take off. My point is Angelina can have these tattoos removed but it comes at a cost which she can afford and its very painful.... hurts worse coming off than on. The scabbing and bandages with showers sucks too. I can easily see this Supermom getting them zapped. She did 20/20 or Primetime live a few years ago.... seems very happy and mature compared to her Billy Bob drug days.

She looks old.

Angelina was born in 1975, now age 35 years, thus she is old. Her domestic partner, William Bradley "Brad" Pitt, is nearly ancient at 46 years old.

I think Ms. Jolie (and her publicity staff) knowingly wore this low cut (or did she just put it on incorrectly?) dress in order to get even more media attention during her Japan tour. This was all over the morning news shows and will probably be a hot topic on the Japanese websites for a few days. For example, she has been featured as the 'Picture of the Day' for the second time this week here on JapanToday website.

Not thrilled with the dress choice, she has looked better... and 35 is not old, clears throat..unless your like 18, then it might seem that way, but the tattoos are fine, I have one small tat of a butterfly on my ankle hovering over a rose, I see nothing wrong with them as long as it's done in a tasteful manor..I do not think she is the most beautiful woman but she is very pretty...

Has anyone seen her new film?

The world nearly ends as the American nuclear bombs shall be dropped over Islamic countries all done by Russian spies of which she is the best and kills them all and is left free at the end by black guy to kill the rest of the Russian sleepers.

Who comes up with such stories?

Luckily certain online portals allow to see this film before falling for the man-made hype of "best action film" and actually wasting money on a cinema ticket.

tattoos or not, Angelina is always a woman to me. I have loved her since Hackers, Girl Interrupted and her work for the United Nations. Truly an amazing woman.

The tatoo really lowers her "class" level to a tramp. It is ugly and irreversable. Why would anyone disrespect their body like that.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

I have paid for my share of girls and if I see even a small tatoo on their ankle or anywhere, I wouldn't pay 5000 yen no matter how good she looks otherwise. It destroys everything sexual about a woman, like bad breath or unshaven legs or dirty teeth... I have absolutely no attraction to a woman with a tatoo. I knew a girl for 5 yrs in Okinawa, she left for the states for one year to study english when she came back she had a small tatoo on her breast, she totally went from innocent smart girl to tramp in my eyes. I never talked to her again and lost all feeling for her in an instant. Garbage.

Who cares about her tats?! Angelina is an amazing actress and philanthropist and she has adopted children from developing countries. I think she is an angel!

Guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder, I for one see tattoos as art..they do not appeal to everyone, but yes they can be erased..read my2sense, post..

I disagree....I love tattoos. I think if they are tasteful and have some meaning behind them, I find them attractive. I don't think your body should be covered in them, that's gross. ....but Angelina's, especially the one on her upper left back is sexy.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Dolphingirl, she adopted children from developing countries because Madonna (their secret heroine) did it. Sandra Bulock did it also. It makes for good press. Now when singers like Cheryl Crow adopt two blonde haired boys, people wonder if she is a racist. I give no credit for adopting children of color, over any other race. I do think it is political though and feel they are actually being raised by nanny's. I'm surprised you had to mention the "developing countries" adjectives. She adopted.. point blank.

Well I have to agree with alphawolf on this one, though I might sound like a conservative. In fact, when I was in DisneyWorld, Florida two years ago, EVERYONE, mothers of 20, 30 even, had tattoos. I was the weird one for not having one. But the point I have to say, is that maybe the tattoo looks good when you are 20 and 30, but gain a little weight at 40 and that dragon looks like puff the magic dragon. Laughable. Then at 50 when you add on more weight and WRINKLES and then puff the magic dragon becomes, WTF is that!!!!! Stupid. Another issue is WHY do you feel the need to have a tattoo. My sister summed it up perfectly, people want attention, they want people to look at them. Sad really, to go down to this level. And maybe in two or three years tattoos will be out of fashion and then it is off to the laser treatment. Another problem I have with Jolie was that she was bisexual, or quite lesbian. Had to give it quite a chance, you see. I just don't think I could marry someone no matter how famous she was if she was that before. Now that is a chicken bone that sticks in your throat. Makes the tattoos look small.

funny how ppl can look down on women with tattoos but dont look down on "paying for women",lol...I personally could care less but really one isn't better than the other..

Angelina Jolie, adopted before Madonna did.. and besides what do most of the ppl in hollywood and the big musicians do? They mostly hand the children over to the nannies, biological or not...so what, at least they live better lives then they would have anyways..

TheRat: Angelina is openly bisexual. It's not like 'she was that before' and now she's not. I am sure she is still bisexual and Brad could be getting some enjoyment from that too!

Truly an amazing woman.

Why is it that if a woman chased after a married man, people are lterally ready to stone her but when it comes to this woman, it is not considered serious? Is it because they are all from the showbiz world?

she is a cool chick. all you haters really need to get a life. i'm quite sure she could care less about haters...only makes her stronger.

Different strokes for different folks I guess? umm no. lol

Me and the wife think Jolie is not only a gorgeous woman, but who is very successful and lady like....even with a tattoo. I bet she is a master at role play. ;P

I mean, if you think a tattoo is trashy while other traits are not. Please educate yourselves. Can almost bet you have a better chance of catching something "not so nice" from a $50 call girl than a woman who go some ink work done.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Whether tattoos are 'art' or 'trashy' or irrelevant is just a function of culture and the times. As they are generally very popular in the USA right now, Jolies tats are just "normal" and neither make her 'trash' or 'artistic'.

In Jolies particular case however, I think the tats also say "I am no delicate little flower - I kick ass". Brains, beauty, eros and strength - a dangerous (yet irresistable) combination. Mr. Pitt had better always be on his best behavior :-)

As so much in the world seems increasingly impermanent and intangible, literally welding moments in ones life to your body seems to be a way of staking a placemarker, a solid indicator of a time, place and state of mind. Laser-erasure of tats has led some to go even further - scarification or branding - to achieve "permanence" and tactile tangibility.

Aside from being a huge waste of money, tattoos are lowbrow narcissism pure and simple, and everybody over 40 I've ever met who had one told me they wish they 'hadn't been so stupid' when they were younger.

Angelina Jolie has accomplished more in her 35 years than probably all of you anti-tat crusaders combined. Your whinging sounds a lot like whiny, crybaby jealousy. What, did she steal your teddybear? Geez. And do you think she cares if you think she looks old or is trashy? She'd never have slept with you anyway. Get over it.

Also, when you claim tats make women low-class or trashy, it says way more about you than the women. (+2 loserdom if you admit to buying women in the same sentence!)

I guess you got me on that one... at least I admit it. Still I guess I will pull a "perspective" and defend myself when I know it's twisted. Ahh, okay how's this... paying for it ahhh.. hmm. Okay, you got me.

I think the "Rats" sister is right... the girls want to be looked at. They do other thing they do to be looked at is do something like adopt a child of a different color. So the profile fits Angelina, she has a tatoo and adopted a black child. All for the media attention and fan attention.

She's hot !!! Her tattoos are hot !!! What's wrong adopting kids that are a different color than your skin color ? She's smart, beautiful, great actor, mysterious, exotic, sexy, independent,makes her own money, doesn't care what you think, strong minded kind of lady with 4-5 tattoos. She's great & does her own thing. I just hope when the kids are not cute anymore and become teens/20 yr, olds she can help them and be a good mother. I hope she is dedicated and love them for life. I wish I can adopt children but I'm not making that much money.

I've always wondered how much time they spend CGI editing for her movies to hide the tattoos. What a stupid thing to do to oneself.

Tatoos don't bother me. Give her a credit. She is a great actress that can command $10 million for a film.

In any case, fashions come and fashions go, and sooner or later, tattoos will be so "LAST YEAR" and then all of these people will be lined up at the laser doctors to get the stupid things off. If one has to have a tattoo because they just HAVE to HAVE someone LOOK at them, better to do a henna tattoo and get it changed to something else a few weeks later. But, frankly, if Jolie is openly bisexual, I just do not know how her husband BRAD can like "take" that. Wow!!!! If the shoe was on the other foot, I wonder how many women could have a similar situation if their husband was "bisexual" and getting some extra fun on the side. I guess the mentality at Hollywood is really different, and to think that I am a liberal too! Just can't go this far though.

The Rat: Just because she is bisexual it doesn't mean she can't be in a committed relationship. Your sexuality and whether you are faithful or not are unrelated.

Angelina Jolie is downright gorgeous, but I'd rather see her without all those tattoos. IMO, the human body (especially hers) is beautiful without anything extra. I respect those, like the Maori, who do it for cultural reasons, but celebrities are definitely only doing it for narcissistic reasons.

I hate tatoos, they look ugly. Especially to get such a HUGE tatoo which Jolie has on her back, that will look really terrible as she ages. People are so stupid, so many get tatoos in the teens and 20s but most will regret it later in life. There is a reason God told the Israelites to not tatoo themselves. The barbaric tribes in asia and africa used tatoos, it is a sign of debasement.
