One of Megan Fox’s newest tattoos is a quote inked on her right ribcage that may or may not be a quote by German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche. Who knew that Megan was interested in Nietzsche, never mind willing to get a quote of his permanently inked on her body. But that’s not the only interesting thing about Megan Fox’s rib tattoo. Find out what Hollywood vet the infamous tat was inked in honor of!
Megan Fox Nietzsche Quote Tattoo
What seems to be Megan Fox’s newest tattoo is a large quote she has inked down her right side, onto her ribcage. Megan Fox’s rib tattoo is written diagonally across her ribcage, and reads “And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.” Wondering what that’s all about? Mickey Rourke, of course! As Megan says, “I actually got a tattoo that is sort of in honor of him. It’s on my ribs. I don’t know if it’s been photographed yet, but it’ll come out eventually, I’m sure.” Megan Fox has faced plenty of criticism in recent years because of her abundance of tattoos and their sometimes seemingly random meanings. But as Megan says, “All the tattoos that I’ve gotten are things that I got on the spur of the moment and that I’m very passionate about.”
Megan Fox Tattoo Meaning and Mickey Rourke
Believe it or not, Megan Fox’s newest rib tattoo was inked in honor of the actress’ Passion Play co-star, Mickey Rourke. The 24-year-old actress felt such a connection with 57-year-old Rourke that she wanted a reminder of their special bond inked on her body. According to Megan Fox, the rib tattoo has to do with marching to the beat of your own drummer and not being afraid to do so. As Megan said, “Mickey is such as beautiful, wonderful human being. He’s so genuine and so sweet and so talented. I just love him to death.” And it seems Megan has big plans for Rourke in the future. “I keep telling him that he needs to have kids, because I think he is going to be an amazing dad,” Megan Fox says. “I hope he does that soon.” Does Mickey Rourke return the sentiment? Of course: “She’s the most talented actress I’ve worked with,” says Rourke of Megan Fox. “When she cries in a scene, I get emotional.”
Megan Fox Rib Tattoo Controversy
Although many people have attributed Megan Fox’s rib tattoo to German philosopher and poet Friedrich Nietzsche, others insist that the quote belongs to a poet named Angela Monet. It would be an understatement to say that Miss Monet is a little-known poet; she actually seems to not exist at all! Staff at the Poetry Society have never heard of her, and the Poetry Library has no record of her in the library’s database. Some people think that Megan Fox’s rib tattoo may actually be an adaptation of a verse from the 13th century Persian poet, Rumi: “We rarely hear the inward music but we’re all dancing to it nonetheless.” So the Megan Fox tattoo mystery continues.
More Tattoos for Megan Fox?
Megan Fox’s ribs tattoo is just one more ink job to add to her collection, which doesn’t seem to be nearing any kind of lull. In fact, Megan Fox plans to get a sleeve inked on her arm once the Marilyn Monroe tattoo is completely removed. “Everyone’s gonna have a heart attack about it,” Megan Fox says. But that certainly won’t stop her. People are already up in arms about Megan Fox’s rib tattoo, claiming that it was a profession of Megan’s love for Mickey Rourke. Not exactly. “It turned into, even though I was in love with Brian, it turned into that I was secretly in love with Mickey Rourke and got a tattoo to release the angst. It was not about that.” What was it about exactly? “I just love [Mickey Rourke] very much and think he’s very special,” Megan says.
