1. ‘Marilyn Monroe’ Tattoo

Tattoo: ‘Marilyn Monroe’ Tattoo on her right forearm.

Meaning: One of the most adorable tats of Megan Fox is the portrait of Marilyn Monroe. Megan has idolized Marilyn Monroe since her childhood and also claims to have cried every time hearing Marilyn’s voice when she was a kid. She got this when she was 18 years old, but in 2011, she decided to go for the laser treatment to get this portrait removed to avoid negative energies in her life. In an interview in 2012, she discussed the painful laser treatment she is taking to get rid of this tattoo. She said,

Getting them is not that bad. Your skin sort of explodes and looks like little kernels of popcorn popping up. They can’t numb it enough to make the pain go away. When I was 19, everyone told me that soon I am not going to love my tats, But I was stubborn and I thought that I would love it forever, or that it would be like a book of my life, all the things that I loved when I was younger, And it’s not that at all.”

Megan decided to get this tattoo removed because she felt that the portrait of Marilyn Monroe was attracting negative vibes in her life due to which she would end up in depression and will have a tragic lifelike Marilyn Monroe. She said,

I just feel like there are better things to have inked on your body than someone who suffered so much. So in getting older, I just decided that is something I wanted to get rid of.”

On December 13, 2019, she uploaded a picture of her on her Instagram account in which the tattoo of Marilyn Monroe is merely visible.
