No doubt Megan Fox is passionate about her tattoos, but what exactly has she had inked on her skin and what do they each mean to her. During an interview Megan expressed that her tattoos are a way to say F.U. to Hollywood, here’s what she had to say.
“Every time I get a tattoo, it’s a little fuck-you to anyone who tells me not to. I like the way getting a tattoo feels. It’s weird to be part of Hollywood, which tries to control every aspect of people, from what they say to the color of their hair. And I like the way getting a tattoo feels. If I’m depressed, it’s nice to get one and deal with the pain. I have one all the way down to my ribs. It hurt, but it felt good like twisting a loose tooth. I’m not kidding when I say that if I ever lose a role because of my tattoos, I’ll quit Hollywood and go to work at Costco.” “Everyone hates them because people are so closed-minded about tattoos”
Megan Fox’s first tattoo was the one on the nape of her neck, she got it after a bad breakup when she was only 18. The tattoo is a Chinese symbol for strength done in calligraphy and do to it’s location, is hidden in most of her public pictures. “I got the Japanese symbol for strength on the back of my neck, which is pretty cheesy. I was really scared, but it didn’t hurt at all. So now I’m addicted.”
Megan’s next tattoo is a star and moon symbol on her left inner ankle. “I have one on my ankle – an upside-down star and a moon because my dad used to read me a book when I was little that had a moon and star on the back.” This is Megan’s only tattoo with colored ink to date.
The tattoo on Megan Fox’s left wrist is not one of her favorites, a ying yang tribal tattoo of two waves. She has said that she regrets getting it because, “The guy was smoking weed while he tattooed me and he didn’t do it correctly. Now it’s nothing and I’m gonna get it removed. I was told he was a really amazing tattoo artist but he wasn’t on his game that night. He was distracted.” The Transformers actress has hinted that she may have it removed in the future, although she has yet to start the process.
Megan also has a tattoo of her husband, Brian Austin Green’s name tattooed just south of her waist by what she refers to as her “pie”. She got the tattoo in 2005 of her then fiance, and when asked what she would do if they ever broke up responded that she would keep it, because she could always name one of her children Brian!
Megan’s next tattoo is that of her idol Marilyn Monroe inked on her left forearm. She has said that the actress was the first person she was ever exposed to on the television and when she would come on the young girl would cry upon hearing her voice. It was inked by famed LA artist Mark Mahoney, who has done Fred Durst and Angelina Jolie.

Megan’s next tattoo reads; We will all laugh at gilded butterflies, and is located on her back, behind the right shoulder and is an Old English font. The quote is adapted from a Shakespeare’s piece called King Lear. Here is the full quote by King Lear to his daughter, Cordelia:
No, no, no, no! Come, let’s away to prison.
We two alone will sing like birds i’ th’ cage.
When thou dost ask me blessing, I’ll kneel down
And ask of thee forgiveness. So we’ll live,
And pray, and sing, and tell old tales, and laugh
At gilded butterflies, and hear poor rogues
Talk of court news; and we’ll talk with them too-
Who loses and who wins; who’s in, who’s out-
And take upon ‘s the mystery of things,
As if we were God’s spies; and we’ll wear out,
In a wall’d prison, packs and sects of great ones
That ebb and flow by th’ moon.
When Megan was asked what it meant, she replied “to not get too caught up in Hollywood because people will end up laughing at you.” Which in our opinion is very ironic considering the actresses latest plastic surgery tweaks!
The next textually prominent tattoo Megan got was a poem she wrote and tattooed it along her left ribcage. The poem reads: there once was a little girl who never knew love until a boy broke her HEART. This tattoo is also done in Old English and is a tribute to a friend who died in a car crash. She has said that the tattoo itself was very painful, but liked the whole process, and even compared it to pulling a tooth.
Megan’s latest tattoo to date (April 2011) is a quote from Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche – And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music. Fox stated “I actually got a tattoo this is sort of in honor of [Mickey Rourke]. It’s on my ribs. I don’t know if it’s been photographed yet, but it’ll come out eventually, I’m sure. I just love him very much and think he’s very special.”
Megan Fox definitely cares what the public thinks of her regardless of her “F.U.” attitude. If she didn’t why would she be getting so many look altering plastic surgery procedures? Is this all part of a “I wanna be the next Angelina Jolie” plot? What do you think of all her ink, is it genuine, does it suit her, or is it superficial?
