You are here: Celebrity Tattoos » Megan Fox
Megan Fox is a big fan of tattoo art, she has about 9 designs on her body. People have certain reasons why they have tattoos or text permanently imprinted on their bodies, and Megan Fox is no different. Each of her tattoos has a special meaning for her and marks a certain point in her life.
Megan's Opinion About Tattoos
Megan Fox is certainly a woman of her own mind. She issued a statement about why she continues to get tattoos, even when Hollywood tells her to stop.
My tattoos are a little f-you to anyone who tells me not to...
She enjoys the way getting a new tattoo feels, and each one of her tattoos has a special meaning to her. She considers tattooing an art form, and has told several people that she will quit Hollywood if she ever does not get a role because of her tattoos. The actress herself has stated she does not see an end to her tattoo collection.
Megan got her first tattoo at the age of 18 after the end of a long-term relationship. It is the Chinese symbol of strength (or force), and it sits in the center on the back of her neck. The public rarely gets to see this tattoo because her hair covers it completely.
"We will all laugh at gilded butterflies," an adaptation of a quote from King Lear by William Shakespeare is one of Megan's text tattoos. The quote is scripted primarily in the Old English font. She got this tattoo on her right scapula to remind her to stay grounded and not get trapped in all the glitz and glamour of Hollywood.
Megan has an exceptional Marilyn Monroe tattoo on her right inner forearm. She has idolized Marilyn since she was very young, and knows a great deal about the actress. Her placement of the tattoo was so she could look at it and be warned not to let Hollywood treat her as badly as they treated Ms. Monroe.
Update: Megan has started laser surgery to remove her Marilyn tattoo. She's afraid the design will attract negative energy into her life because of Monroe's personality disorders...
Crescent Moon and Star
The crescent moon and star tattoo is the only color tattoo showing on her body and is located above her inner left ankle. What it symbolizes for Megan Fox remains a mystery, since the actress has kept mum about the reason she got that particular design inked.
Megan grew up surfing and has a great love for the ocean, which inspired her to get a tribal tattoo with two waves that resemble the yin and yang symbol. Unfortunately, the tattoo artist was, to quote Megan, "not all there." She has stated she is considering having it removed, since it would be difficult to cover up that particular tattoo. Of all the Megan Fox tattoos, this one is indeed the least impressive.
In 2005, while dating actor Brian Austin Green (now her husband), she introduced the world to her newest tattoo: the scripted word "Brian" located on her lower right abdomen area. When asked about what she would do if she and Brian ever separated, her reply was that she could always name a son Brian.
The text tattoo on the side of Megan's chest is a poem she wrote herself:
"There once was a little girl who never knew love until a boy broke her HEART".
She had it inked in the Old English font across her entire left ribcage.
Tribute to Rourke
Megan Fox's latest ink another side tattoo, this one in honor of Passion Play co-star Mickey Rourke. The phrase is a quote from philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche:
"And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music."
Other Megan Fox Tattoos
It is rumored that Megan has 2 more tattoos, but that they are not visible to the public. Some rumors hold that she has an "I love Steven Johnson" tattoo on her inner left thigh, others say that she has text on her buttocks
It is also said script tattoo on Megan's right breast, but both rumors are unconfirmed at this point.
The Cover Up Fail
Hollywood is not very fond of tattoos and if an actor or actress has one or more, they are usually covered up in a movie. Usually this works well, but in Megan Fox's movie Transformers: Revenge of The Fallen, the make-up people failed, as you can see in this still:
