Brad Pitt – Ötzi the Iceman Tat, Broken Levees

Brad Pitt is one of Hollywood’s golden boys; the star of Oceans 11, Se7en, Fight Club, Snatch, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, and World War Z has had one of the most successful careers in the history of the big screen. He’s also had a very interesting personal life, highlighted by his charity work and his highly publicized romance with fellow superstar Angelina Jolie; his body art reflects this. Brad Pitt has three tattoos, two on the back of his left forearm, and one on his right kidney area. His forearm work is an outline of Ötzi the Iceman (the oldest full fossil of a human ever found), and a quote in German that translates to “absurdities of the existence” (from philosopher Friedrich Nietsche). His back tattoo is a little bit more complicated, and took some people with a lot of time on their hands doing a bit of research to figure out. What at first appears to just be a bunch of random lines, is actually a representation of the New Orleans levees; he got the tattoo in honor of the town that he’s worked so hard to help rebuild in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. Brad Pitt; great actor, nice ink.
