However, as the years have passed Megan has decided that she is no longer in love with the forearm tat. Megan Fox’s Marilyn tattoo was inked when the Transformers star was 18, and now that she is 25, she says she is just plain “over it.” More specifically, Megan said, “You outgrow things that you love when you were a child. I got it when I was 18 and now I’m 25 and it just doesn’t make sense anymore. [Laser removal] is a hundred times worse than the tattoo itself.” Now that Megan Fox knows how painful getting a tattoo removed is, maybe she will put more thought into her body tattoos in the future!
Megan Fox’s Marilyn Tattoo Meaning
Marilyn Monroe has been Megan Fox’s idol since she was a little girl. As Megan recalls, “She was one of the first people I saw on television, like, literally moments after I was born. Every time I heard her voice growing up I would always cry. I wouldn’t know why when I was younger but I had my own theories. I’ve just always empathized with her.” Apparently, Megan Fox’s Marilyn tattoo has always been her favorite tat, not only because of her love for the sex symbol, but also because of the forearm tattoo’s sixties theme.

In the past, Megan Fox has discussed the similarities she sees between herself and Marilyn Monroe, even once revealing that she was afraid she might die early like the on-screen siren. “I basically read every book ever written about Marilyn Monroe,” says Megan Fox. “I could end up like that because I constantly struggle with the idea that I think [I have] borderline personality [disorder] – or that I have bouts of mild schizophrenia. I definitely think I have some kind of mental problem and I haven’t pinpointed what it is.”

I do not want to attract this kind of negative energy in my life.”
