Jolie has said that her husband was left feeling uneasy when their daughters, Vivienne, six, Shiloh, eight and Zahara, nine, asked if they could get inked themselves, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
“They’re already asking me about tattoos. How do I say no? It’s especially hard for dads and girls,” Jolie, who herself has some tattoos told Radio Times.
“For some reason, men get a little more sensitive when the daughter gets a tattoo. And Brad thinks the girls can do no wrong. He’s mush in their hands,” she added.
However the couple, who is also parents to three boys, six-year-old Knox, 11-year-old Pax and Maddox, 13, agree that their children should pursue a different career to their own.
“We’ve always said, if they want to act, we won’t let them only act, because it’s not enough. They’ll have to find a real job at the same time. But I’m hoping that when they see all the other things in the world, they’ll be inspired to be writers, politicians, activists.
“They are very individual people. So I imagine they’re not going to follow their mum and dad,” Jolie said.
