What’s Up with Brad Pitt’s Tattoo?


A mysterious outline of a figure on tattooed Brad Pitt’s forearm had bloggers all a-speculating what it could be. Initially, it was suspected to be an outline of the character played by Angelina Jolie in “Tomb Raider,” but now it’s been pointed out on Celebitchy that the figure is in fact, iceman, Ötzi, Europe’s oldest natural human mummy, discovered in a glacier in Italy back in 1991. That’s like some CSI-type shit right there, which I would NOT have the patience to do myself, so I’m glad there are other, more ambitious (less lazy) bloggers out there doing it. However, as the blog does point out:

The tattoo does bear a resemblance to the swinging ponytail image of Angelina Jolie’s Tomb Raider character, and maybe that was deliberate.

I do think it’s great that Brangelina are such a politically-aware and active couple, when it comes to getting their humanitarianism on, but this tattoo thing just seems to matchy to me. Like the “cool kid” version of wearing matching air-brushed sweatshirts.

An even more thrilling partial view of the tattoo is after the jump.
