Megan Fox Breaking Up With Her Marilyn Monroe Tattoo

It's a true stretch, calling anything about Megan Fox "iconic" as People does. But taking away the former "Transformers" and "Jennifer's Body" starlet's one most distinguishing physical signature? It certainly does strip her of something that makes her "Her."

Fox told People that she's apparently "over" the signature Marilyn Monroe portrait tattoo that's adorned the actress' right forearm since she was but a lass of 18, and has been gradually having it stricken from her record.

“You outgrow things that you love when you were a child. I got it when I was 18 and now I’m 25 and it just doesn’t make sense anymore," Fox said.

The photo above clearly depicts Marilyn's faded glory about Fox's immaculate skin after what Fox claims has been a lone laser-removal session.

She adds that with her fair complexion, the ink is coming away far easier than it would were she a tad more bronzed. She estimates that it will take another three or four sessions before Marilyn is but a memory.

"(Laser removal) is a hundred times worse than the tattoo itself," remarked Fox, echoing more than a few ink aficionado's post-laser sentiments.

If she takes the pain that badly, here's hoping Fox had her remaining tattoos done while in a more mature place. There's still the Shakespearean verse on her shoulder, the text running up both sides of her ribcage and husband Brian Austin Green's name on her hip. She apparently plans on keeping Marilyn's former canvas blank, once she's gone.
