Megan Fox Trying to 'Will Away' Marilyn Monroe Tattoo

Marilyn Monroe may be in this season, but Megan Fox wants her gone.

The actress — who’s “over” the Monroe tattoo she’s had on her right forearm for the last several years — is in the process of removing the ink, but admits it’s slow-going. Asked when her tattoo will be gone, she told PEOPLE, “When I have the nerve to go and get my next laser treatment.”

Speaking to reporters in New York Monday night at the People StyleWatch and Cinema Society screening of her new film, Friends with Kids, she said that the tattoo removal process (she’s been to one session so far) is “extremely painful.”

Luckily, she has someone who feels her pain: husband Brian Austin Green. “We’re both removing tattoos that we don’t necessarily need anymore,” he shared. “It sucks — it’s not fun at all.”

Fox has covered her ink with makeup when shooting films in recent months, but she’s also experimented with an alternative removal system, as well. “I’m trying to absorb the ink just through willpower, trying to make it go away on its own,” she joked. “And it’s kind of working!”

I heard there is a more effective way to remove tattoo’s….something with salt and a few treatments.
Looked like a pretty good one though, maybe just needed some refreshing color.

Don’t need anymore? Oh, hold on a second, logic is knocking…

You never needed it in the first place, you dumb broad.

Cue the fools that think because one person doesn’t want their tattoo anymore it means that the rest of us (in the millions) regret ours too.

I do not know whay she is removing her tattoo especially of Marilyn Monroe. I have a tattoo of Msrilyn and would never think to remove it. Plus Megan is so not worthy to watch on the screen as she is one of the dumbest females to be in the business. She may have a pretty face, but that is it. She is too skinny though in my eyes.
