Megan Fox has got an incredible collection of body arts that makes her even hotter. All her body tats aren’t simply for decoration but each one of them holds a specific story. According to Megan Fox, her tats are a celebration of who she is and are mostly dedicated to the important things in her life. Here is everything you need to know about Megan Fox’s tattoos and their meanings.
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.

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 in order to avoid negative energies in her life. In an interview in 2012, she discussed the painful laser treatment she is taking to get rid off 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.”
