The Tattoos of Megan Fox
Not only did she start out in modeling before moving to film, she’s being courted by Warners Bros. to take on the role of Lara Croft in the upcoming continuation of the Tomb Raider movie franchise. However, that’s not the only thing that actress Megan Fox has in common with fellow thespian Angelina Jolie. Much like her action heroine predecessor, Megan Fox has a growing collection of tattoos.
Fox’s personal ink collection is fast approaching the one dozen point. At the present time, estimates put her collection as being around eight or nine tattoos. Most of her collection is just blackwork, but one small piece of a star and moon on her right ankle is in color. One of her boldest and most visible tattoos is a sizable portrait of icon Marilyn Monroe that is on the inside of her right forearm which takes up about half of her lower arm. Fox has said in interviews that she had been a fan of the actress since she was a young girl and empathized with Monroe’s experiences.
Some of her tattoos which are fan favorites are quotations. One on her right shoulder is a line fragment from Shakespeare’s play “King Lear” which reads “we will all laugh at gilded butterflies.” What is probably her largest tattoos is another quotation which is rendered all down the left side of her ribs. That particular piece reads “there once was a little girl who never knew love until a boy broke her HEART.”
Megan has been dating fellow actor Brian Austin Green for many years and has a tattoo of his first name down on her bikini line. She’s also got a small tribal piece on her wrist, the kanji for “strength” on the back of her neck and is in the process of having a bad tribal design removed from her arm. She says she made the mistake of having a poor artist do the work and won’t make that mistake again.
Most recently, Fox’s mother has been quoted in the media as saying she’s not fond of her daughter’s tattoo habit and wishes she would stop so as to not harm her career. However, Fox herself has stated that she feels getting tattoos “is a little (expletive deleted)” to people who don’t like them. She commented that as a teen she was always resentful of authority figures and has maintained this attitude in Hollywood where many in the movie industry attempt to control how actors look and act.
