Think Twice Before You Get That Tattoo

​Don’t get the tattoo blues after a break up. What we can learn from Brangelina split

News is that with Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s divorced pending, the Hollywood actress is now looking to have her tattoos removed – only to join the increasing number of us regretting our inky tributes to ex partners.

It was only a year ago that Brad showed off his latest inking – a design dedicated to his wife and kids that involved a cross on his right arm with the letter A and the initials of his children intertwined.

Brad, 51, also has separate tattoos on his back, arms, calf and on his stomach and Angelina has a design on her upper arm of the birthplace coordinates of her children – a tattoo that at the time replaced the name of her ex-hubby Billy Bob Thornton.
Also this month, Eva Longoria documented the removal of her wrist tattoo on Snapchat, warning us all that although it may be painful having a tattoo inked on, it hurts more to get it removed.

And this serves as timely reminder for us all to think before we ink.
Recent figures reveal that revenue for tattoo removals has climbed 440% to an estimated $75.5 million over the last decade.

In fact, we are spending an increasing amount on tattoo removals with new technology in tattoo removal techniques driving up demand.

Anouska Cassano is a micro-pigmentation practitioner who specialises in chemical tattoo removal and is Densdome online partner.

She says: ‘Relationship break-ups and job-hunting have led to a surge in tattoo removal – they’re the two major reasons for regret. It’s particularly important for those with job opportunities and I’ve had people people beg for removal in shortest time, without caring about potential scar damage.

‘There are more tattooed people than ever before and the numbers are rising, particularly 23-45 age group – most of us will have family members or friends with tattoos and this helps normalise them – or can make it feel that tattoos are something most people have.’

However, she warns: ‘My strong advice is that if you want a tattoo, do your research! Think about what you are looking to portray through your tattoo and, most importantly, make sure you can cover it with work clothes! Not every country, not every career and, maybe, not even you will want a visual permanent reminder of the time in your life you opted to have your tattoo or design.’

Despite new technology making it easier to remove tattoos, Anouska suggests that new trends for white or fluorescent tattoos make this impossible with laser.

She adds: ‘There are also some colour tattoos that have a “shine” and which promise long-lasting vibrant colours – which they certainly deliver – but, be warned, it’s the shine that makes laser removal virtually impossible.’



Brad Pitt Fires Back! Releases Statement On Divorce

​Brad Pitt didn’t wait long to add his two cents into the divorce announcement mix, releasing a statement shortly after soon-to-be ex Angelina Jolie issued her own.

“I am very saddened by this, but what matters most now is the well being of our kids,”the actor said in his statement to PEOPLE magazine. “I kindly ask the press to give them the space they deserve during this challenging time.”
As Densdome readers know, Jolie filed for divorce earlier today, citing irreconcilable differences. 

The 41-year-old, who stated that the couple separated September 15, is seeking full physical custody over the couple’s six children.

“Angelina will always do what’s in the best interest to protect her children,” Geyer Kosinski, Angie’s manager, revealed to Radar. “She appreciates everyone’s understanding of their need for privacy at this time.”

Later, attorney Robert Offer added: “This decision was made for the health of the family. [Angelina] will not be commenting, and asks that the family be given its privacy at this time.”

Shortly after tying the knot in 2014, the couple moved to Malta and the island of Goza to film their joint venture By the Sea, which Jolie had called their “honeymoon.”But it was a disaster from the start!

A correspondent told Densdome that Pitt was drinking and this greatly affected production. Filming was stopped “because of how he was acting, he wouldn’t be ready for shoots, he was late.”

“They would see how he was a mess,”the source told Radar. “People were worried that he was an alcoholic.”

To make matters worse, sources close to the pair say the split comes after Angelina strongly disagreed with Brad’s parenting style, claiming the actress was “extremely upset with his methods.”

JUST IN: Angelina Jolie speaks out on Brad Pitt divorce

​Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from husband Brad Pitt in order to “protect her children,” the actress’ manager revealed, raising new questions around the couple’s shocking split.

“Angelina will always do what’s in the best interest to protect her children,” Geyer Kosinski, her manager, revealed to Radar. “She appreciates everyone’s understanding of their need for privacy at this time.”

As reported earlier, Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt, citing irreconcilable differences. The 41-year-old is seeking full physical custody over the couple’s six children, which would leave Pitt with visitation rights.

Jolie is being represented lawyer Laura Wasser, who was hired in her divorce from Billy Bob Thornton in 2003 and is currently representing Johnny Depp in his scandalous split from Amber Heard.
Sources close to the pair say the split comes after Angelina strongly disagreed with Brad’s parenting style, claiming the actress was “extremely upset with his methods.”

“This decision was made for the health of the family. She will not be commenting, and asks that the family be given its privacy at this time,” attorney Robert Offer later shared in a statement.

Meanwhile, Angie’s father Jon Voight exclusively revealed to Radar new details on the devastating breakup.
“I don’t know much about it except it must be something serious,” Voight told Radar. “I just got the news and I’m concerned.”

The couple first got together in 2005, after starring in Mr. & Mrs. Smith together. The controversial relationship closely followed Pitt’s high-profile split from then-wife, Jennifer Aniston.

How Angelina hired investigators to spy on Brad

Angelina Jolie hired a private investigator to spy on Brad Pitt on the set of his new film amid fears he was having an affair with co-star Marion Cottilard, it is claimed.

Pitt has been at the centre of rumours for months about growing close to the French actress while filming “Allied,” prompting Angelina to act.

A source told the New York Post: “She hired a private eye because she felt he was fooling around with her on the set”

The film, which Brad and Marion shot in February in London, is based on a true story about two assassins who fell in love during a mission.

Remarkably, Brad and three-times wed Angelina met and fell in love on the set of 2005’s Mr & Mrs Smith, in which they played married rival assassins who are unaware of each other’s job.

And it seems the end of Brangelina was also played out on screen in 2015’s By the sea which Angelina wrote and directed in which they starred as a couple with relationship problems.

Marion, who is with 43-year-old actor Guillaume Canet, has yet to respond to the claims, but a source said she would be “absolutely devastated” by them.

The star, 40, is said to be expecting her second child with Guillaume, who she has been with since 2007. They have a five-year-old son, Marcel.

A source close to Marion’s family in her hometown Paris said: “Marion and Guillaume are blissfully happy, and these kind of claims are not what Marion wants to be hearing.

“She’s said that all she wants to do is to enjoy some quality time with Guillaume and their boy.

“Claims that she’s now cheating on Guillaume with Brad will leave her absolutely devastated. This doesn’t sound like her at all.”

Marion gave birth to Marcel, five, while still working extremely hard at her career, but she has recently indicated that she wants a ‘quieter life’, said the source.

“She guards her private life, and wants to enjoy more of it,” said the source. “All this fuss will be a huge shock to her.”

Marion, who turns 41 at the end of this month, has been hugely busy working on up four films this year.

A source close to her also denied the affair rumours to the New York Post.

Stunning actress Marion played Brad’s wife in Allied, which tells the tale of an intelligence officer in North Africa, who meets a female French Resistance fighter on a deadly mission.

When the lovers reunite in London, their relationship is forced to deal with the pressures of war.

Unfortunately, it’s alleged that Angelina was not happy with some of the romantic scenes.

Oscar-winning Marion is one of the most successful actresses in recent French movie history, and has built up a multi-million pounds fortune.

Her greatest triumph to date was best actress Academy Award for her portrayal of French cabaret singer Edith Piaf in the 2007 film La Vie en Rose.

It meant she became the second actress to win an acting Oscar performing in a language other than English.

Pitt is no stranger to growing close to his co-stars having been romantically involved or linked to several.

In 1995 he met and fell in love with Gwyneth Paltrow while on the set of Seven getting engaged before splitting two years later.

In 2005 he grew close to Jolie while filming Mr & Mrs Smith despite still being married to Friends star Jennifer Aniston.

Brangelina have six children together – Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 8.

Angelina is said to be upset over Brad’s parenting skills and doesn’t want him to have physical custody of their children, only joint legal custody, TMZ said.

Jolie has been repeatedly telling him that he is “not in his 20s anymore” as details have emerged of Pitt’s boyish antics around the world.

On Father’s Day earlier this year Angelina was in New York with Knox, while Pitt was in France at the Le Mans race.

On June 26 Pitt attended the Born-Free Vintage Chopper and Classic Cycle Show, where the actor was “getting up close and personal” with fans.

One insider at the time said that “seeing Brad at this event with all these woman has sent Angelina over the edge.”

The couple have been together since 2004 after falling for each other on the set of Mr, and Mrs. Smith – while Brad was still married to Friends star Jennifer Aniston.

A year later, they went public with their relationship but only tied the knot on August 23, 2014 in a surprise ceremony at their French estate, Chateau Miraval.

There was speculation their marriage was beset by problems as early as the honeymoon when the couple moved to Malta and the island of Goza to film their joint venture By the Sea

In June this year, the couple reportedly fell out over plans to put their Chateau Miraval property in the South of France on the market.

Pitt reportedly refused to part ways with the property, but she wanted to sell up to enable her to become a member of the House of Lords.

Celebrity power couple set for divorce

​One of Hollywood’s ‘power couples’ Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie popularly known as ‘Brangelina’ by their teeming fans, have decided to end their 12-year relationship.

According to popular gossip site TMZ, the couple who dated for ten years before getting married in 2014, have cited ‘irreconcilable differences’ as the reason for their split. The proud parents of six children met on the set of a movie ‘Mr and Mrs Smith’ and began dating in 2004.

According to TMZ, Jolie who filed for divorce, says she wants the court to only grant her soon-to-be ex-husband joint legal custody of their children, and visitation rights as well. She also refuses to accept spousal support from her movie star husband.

The couple whose date of separation was listed as September 15, 2016, were last seen together in July, when they took their twins out for a birthday breakfast.
Here’s what a source told TMZ:

“Our sources say, Angelina became “fed up” with Brad’s consumption of weed and possibly alcohol, and mixed with what she believes is “an anger problem” … felt it became dangerous for the children. We’re told there was no alleged “third person” … her decision to file was solely over Brad’s interaction with their children.”
