Say Goodbye to Megan Fox’s Marilyn Monroe Tattoo

You may remember Megan Fox. She’s a lovely girl who was once the Next Big Thingâ„¢ but kind of blew it when she developed the nasty habit of being honest during interviews, which wouldn’t have been so bad if it didn’t seem like she was trying so hard to be cool and different and outre.

Then she compounded a public-perception problem by trashing her “Transformers” director, who’s largely credited with being the one who made her a star. Which was, you know, rude, so she seemed like a spoiled brat. Oddly enough, other directors haven’t been all that anxious to work with her since then.

Now she seems to be trying to reinvent herself a bit. She got married, started keeping her mouth shut when microphones are around, and she’s been taking smaller roles and working on her acting skills.

Along with that, one of her famous tattoos — the one on her right arm of Marilyn Monroe — seems to be fading into oblivion.

When asked about it by Italy’s Amica Magazine, she said:

I’m removing it. It is a negative character, as she suffered from personality disorders and was bipolar. I do not want to attract this kind of negative energy in my life.

Fox has also ditched her navel-ring:

I did it when I was 16-years-old because I was a fan of Britney Spears. The only time I tried to imitate someone else. But then I thought it was tacky and so I removed it when I turned 20.

Which is all well and good, but saying it’s “the only time” she’s tried to imitate someone else may be a bit of a stretch. Every time I’ve seen her, she looks like a little more like the second coming of Angelina Jolie.
