Back in April we discovered that actress Megan Fox was undergoing the process to have her infamous Marilyn Monroe tattoo removed from her arm and today we learn why, exactly, she decided to have it removed. According to new comments published in the Italian magazine Amica, Megan believes that Marilyn Monroe was a “negative character” who had a lot of problems in life and she now regrets having her face tattooed on her body. Fox believes that having Marilyn tattooed on her person will bring negative energy into her life … and that is why she is now having it removed. Um, ok.
Megan Fox has revealed she is removing her tattoo of Marilyn Monroe in a bid to avoid attracting ‘negative energy’. The 25-year-old actress, whose acting career has floundered in recent years, began laser treatment on her forearm inking earlier this year. She was quizzed about her etching of the iconic blonde bombshell, who died in 1962 at the age of 36, by Italian magazine Amica. Fox, who was spotted on the set of This is 40 in LA today, explained: ‘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.’ It’s not the only body adornment she has grown to regret. When asked about her navel piercing, she said: ‘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.’ Former Transformers star Megan has around nine tattoos – other inkings include; a quote on her shoulder reading ‘We will all laugh at gilded butterflies’ and a tribal mark on her left wrist. She also has a tribute to her Passion Play co-star Mickey Rourke, 57. The tattoo, over the right side of her rib cage, reads: ‘Those who danced were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.’ She told MTV.com: ‘Mickey is such a beautiful, wonderful human being. He’s so genuine and so sweet and so talented. I just love him to death. I actually got a tattoo that is sort of in honour of him. It’s on my ribs.’ While the Passion Play actors hit it off, the film was not such a success – it flopped in spectacular fashion and went straight to DVD. It was yet another blow to Megan’s acting career, which has nosedived since she parted ways with the successful Transformers franchise.
LOL! I mean … I guess that makes sense. Let’s just hope that Megan doesn’t one day find Mickey Rourke to be a “negative character” as well otherwise she might have to undergo more painful laser tattoo removal in the future. I mean, I’m not even going to get into the whole Marilyn being a negative character thing … that’s just, funny. It sounds like Megan is blaming the negativity in her life on Marilyn Monroe. But let this be a lesson to all of you. Think carefully before you get a tattoo. Laser tattoo removal, I understand, is insanely painful. Think before you tat. Don’t be another Megan Fox.
