Brad Pitt is slowly trying to move on in his life, after split from Angelina Jolie. The actor is reportedly trying to remove the tattoos he got in honour of his wife.

Brangelina fans around the world were shocked when the 41-year-old actress filed for divorce from him on 19 September 2016, citing irreconcilable differences.

A source told Star magazine: "He's making appointments to remove the tattoos he got for Angie. He's ready for a fresh start and wants that reflected on his skin."

"It's going to take at least a year to get rid of them, and they'll leave scars," the insider added.

"He may just cover them up, but he has so many about Angie, he'll end up needing a lot of huge pieces," the source shared.

Meanwhile, during a recent interview with GQ, the 53-year-old actor revealed his priority right now are the couple's children. He said: "Family first. People on their deathbeds don't talk about what they obtained or were awarded."

"They talk about their loved ones or their regrets—that seems to be the menu. I say that as someone who's let the work take me away. Kids are so delicate. They absorb everything. They need to have their hand held and things explained. They need to be listened to. When I get in that busy work mode, I'm not hearing. I want to be better at that," Pitt added.
