Jolie adds Thai tattoo

Jolie has a number of tattoos
Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie has gone under the needle again on a trip to Thailand, having a traditional Khmer tattoo etched on her shoulder.

The Nation newspaper reported the tattoo, which features five vertical rows of Khmer script, is designed to ward off bad luck and to avoid accidents.

The Tomb Raider star is a frequent visitor to Asia and last year she adopted a young boy from Cambodia and donated $100,000 (62,822) to a Thai refugee camp.

She also has a selection of tattoos, including one with the name of her ex-husband Billy Bob Thornton, which she hid with make-up when she attended the Bafta film awards in London in February.
