Hollywood celebrity and film star Brad Pitt sported a new tattoo to the media recently, but nobody could interpret the symbolism behind the design.

The single colour tattoo, made up of lines, seemingly represents the levee system which failed when Hurrican Katrina struck New Orleans in 2005.

Brad is said to be heavily involved in a re-housing project in the city and has a home there himself. The tattoo is his dedication to the charitable cause and acts a remebrance of those who lost their lives and homes.
