The 'Jonah Hex' star sparks speculation she has undergone laser treatments to remove the ink after she was recently spotted with a lighter version of the permanent portrait on her right forearm.
Megan Fox may have undergone laser treatments to remove one of her trademark tattoos. The "Passion Play" actress generated the buzz after she showed up at a New York City party celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Jaguar E-Type on April 20 with a lighter and less-detailed design of her Marilyn Monroe ink.
Back in 2009, the 24-year-old beauty explained to Bunte magazine what inspired her to permanently etch Marilyn's portrait on her right forearm. "I really admire Marilyn Monroe but I would never try to emulate her," she said. "I got the tattoo as a warning. It warns me not to let myself be treated so badly by the film industry so that it breaks me down."
Megan still has a number of other tattoos emblazoned on her skin. Some of them are engraved words. One placed on her right shoulder is a line adapted from William Shakespeare's play King Lear that reads, "We will all laugh at gilded butterflies", another one is a poem etched on the left side of her rib cage, and the other one on her lower hip bears the name of her husband Brian Austin Green.
