It’s hard to imagine Megan Fox as anything but the powerful seductress that you’ve seen in the movies, on the cover of men’s magazines, and on the poster in your bedroom. Admit it, you’re even a little afraid of her. It seems like the true Megan Fox may be hiding behind the personality she puts out in Hollywood though with her strength tattoo. Find out why Megan Fox chose a Chinese symbol of strength to have inked on the back of her neck.
Megan Fox Strength Tattoo
What is believed to be Megan Fox’s first tattoo is the small Chinese symbol inked on the back of her neck that stands for strength. Megan Fox’s back neck tattoo is inked in black and is rarely seen by the public, since Megan’s long dark locks typically cover the strength symbol tattoo. Although Megan Fox seems like this extremely powerful female figure in Hollywood, especially since she has been voted the #1 sexiest woman in the past, the model and actress admits that she has developed a sort of alternate identity to help her deal with the difficulties of life in the Hollywood spotlight. In a kind of shocking quote, Megan Fox says, “I’ve learned that being a celebrity is like being a sacrificial lamb.” She continues, “And I created a character as an offering for the sacrifice. I’m not willing to give my true self up.” If that’s not strength, I don’t know what is!
Megan Fox’s Tattoos and Her Take on Hollywood
Megan Fox considers herself to be a very open person and she is proud of the fact that she always speaks her mind, no matter what. One of the most personal things that she has shared with the public about herself is that she sometimes struggles with image issues and actually thinks that she may have “some kind of mental problem.” Megan has also expressed her feelings about being a part of Hollywood and how that has affected her life to this point. “I’m kind of a recluse,” she admits. “I’m a hermit and it’s because I do have a great fear of Hollywood, just watching what it does to people.” She continues, “You have to be a really strong human being to survive it, as a girl especially.” And does it bother her that the public makes such a big deal about Megan Fox tattoos? “People do comment on them in Hollywood all the time,” she says. “But I’m not going to stop getting them just because it’s going to keep me from getting work.”
Megan Fox Tattoo Meaning
Megan Fox has no problem voicing her opinion about Hollywood in general. As she says, “Hollywood is the most superficial thing you could possibly be a part of, and if I weren’t attractive, I wouldn’t be working at all.” In fact, one of Megan Fox’s most famous quotes includes a promise that the sexy actress will quit Hollywood altogether if she ever loses a role because of her tattoos. Since we now know how Megan Fox feels about Hollywood and the image most people have of Hollywood celebrities, it’s not difficult to figure out Megan Fox’s strength tattoo meaning. Although it’s hard to image the her needing it, Megan Fox’s back tattoo that she got at age 18 is obviously a very personal token intended to give her strength and remind her to stay centered.
Megan Fox on Being a Role Model
Because Megan Fox is seen as this pinup girl-type sex symbol and because has eight tattoos and counting, few people see the Transformers actress as a realistic role model for children and aspiring young female actresses. As Megan says, “If your idea of a role model is somebody who’s gonna preach to your kids that sex before marriage is wrong and cursing is wrong and women should be this and that, then I’m not a role model. But if you want your girls to feel strong and intelligent and be outspoken and fight for what they think is right, then I want to be that type of role model.” Speaking of role model, did you know that Megan is a stepmother? She has reportedly looked after husband Brian Austin Green’s son Kassius since he was three years old, and enjoys every minute of it. Apparently, the foxy actress has always dreamed of having kids of her own. “No one believes me when I talk about this, but I’m really maternal,” Megan says. “I worry that because I’ve always wanted [kids] so much, as the world goes sometimes, I won’t be able to have them.” Who knew?
