Somewhere along the line during her tattoo collecting, Megan got a tattoo inked on her right ankle, which is the only colored ink she has on her body so far. Megan Fox’s ankle tattoo is also one of the only hints we have regarding the superstar’s relationship with her father, Franklin Fox. Do you know what tat Megan Fox has inked on her ankle to remind her of her father?
Megan Fox’s Moon & Star Tattoo
Megan Fox’s only colored tattoo is the overlapping crescent moon and star the actress has inked on the inner part of her right leg, near her ankle. Megan Fox’s ankle tattoo features an orange and yellow crescent moon with a face, inked on top of a blue five-point star. Upon getting the moon and star tattoo, and several other body tattoos after that, Megan Fox only adds to her growing tattoo collection. Although Megan Fox loves tattoos and has said, “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,” the star also recognizes that not everyone is thrilled about her love for body ink. Megan has a plan in place though, if Hollywood higher-ups decide her tattoos just aren’t for them anymore; “I’m not kidding when I say that if I ever lose a role because of my tattoos, I’ll quit Hollywood and go to work at Costco.”
Megan Fox Tattoo Meaning
Moon and star tattoos are pretty popular tattoo designs, and their meanings typically vary depending on the individual. The star in Megan Fox’s ankle tattoo looks like it could be a starfish because of the shape of the design, which would make sense given her love for the ocean and surfing. “I have one on my ankle,” says Megan Fox about her tattoos, “an upside-down star and a moon because my dad used to read me a book when I was little that had a moon and star on the back.” Since Megan is known for altering tattoo designs to suit her own personality, as she did with her Shakespeare tattoo, perhaps the moon and star from the children’s book became a moon and starfish to more aptly represent Megan Fox.
Megan Fox’s parents divorced when she was young, and she was raised by her mother and stepfather, whom she says were “very strict.” Megan Fox lived with her mother until she made enough money to support herself, and moved to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career at 17. Although Megan makes little mention of either of her parents in public, the actress did call her father after she married Brian Austin Green in Hawaii and even sent him a picture of the couple from her iPhone. What a sweet daughter she is! According to Megan Fox’s dad, Franklin Fox, he is “really thrilled” for the happy couple. He also said, “We are in regular contact and I usually go see her when she visits her sister in Florida.” Isn’t it strange that Megan and Brian’s wedding was small, “with only half a dozen guests,” and her father wasn’t one of them?
Megan Fox’s Tattoo Obsession
Ever since Megan Fox got her first tattoo, the Chinese symbol for strength on the back of her neck, she says she constantly thinks about what her next tattoo is going to be and where she is going to put it. Megan Fox’s back neck tattoo was inked when Megan was 18 and recovering from a bad breakup. She says, “I got the symbol for strength on the back of my neck, which is pretty cheesy. I was really scared, but it didn’t hurt at all. So now I’m addicted.” Since then, Megan Fox’s new tattoos have included a Shakespeare quote, a self-written poem about heartbreak, a Nietzsche quote, a portrait of Marilyn Monroe, a tribal wave tat, a tattoo reading “Brian,” and the moon and star inked on her ankle. What does the future hold for Megan Fox’s tattoos, you’re wondering? Once Megan Fox’s Marilyn tattoo is completely removed, which she is in the process of having done, she plans to get a full sleeve inked on that arm! “Everyone’s gonna have a heart attack about it!” Megan Fox says. It looks like Megan may be working at Costco sooner than we think.
