Megan Fox's Tattoos

  • Author:
  • Updated date:

The Body is a Canvas

This leading lady is best known from the hit science fiction movie, Transformers and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. Before she made it big in the movies she was growing up on the set of the television series Hope & Faith where she had the recurring role of Hope's teenage daughter Sydney. Not surprising, before the acting bug hit Megan won awards for modelling and still continues to model today.

Megan Fox also likes to show her creative side on her skin with personal messages and images that hold meaning to her. Here is a collection of her tattoos to study and possibly inspire.

Before I Talk About Megan's Tats


Do I Have Any Tattoos?

I have one tattoo but I think a real tattoo artist would be hard-pressed to even call it a tattoo. It is a simple heart link located on my ankle that I had three months prior to getting married -- twenty years ago. Surprisingly the colors have not faded much over the years.

Gilded Butterflies (1)

Megan Fox has Old English text on her right scapula reading:

"We will all laugh at gilded butterflies."

This is a reference, not a complete quote (although pretty close), from Act V, Scene III of Shakespeare's tragedy King Lear.

Here is a look-see at the tattoo:


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,

Scroll to Continue

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.

Love the Way You Lie

Here is the controversial music video by Eminem and Rihanna featuring Megan Fox and Dominic Monaghan (Lost, Lord of the Rings). Despite the content I think it is well shot. You get to see lots of tattoo action too.

Old English Text on Rib Cage (2)

Megan Fox is obviously a fan of stringing words together with her own personal meaning.

Like the large Old English text on her left rib cage.


once was

a little

girl who

never knew

love until

a boy

broke her


Here is a look-see at the tattoo:


Marilyn Monroe - From One Goddess to Another (3)

Megan Fox is an obvious fan of Hollywood icon Marilyn Monroe. She has a popular image of Marilyn tattooed on her inner right forearm.

Here is a look-see at the tattoo:


Marilyn's a Go Go

In April many sources were saying that Megan Fox was likely getting the famous icon lasered off as the image has been drastically fading but this had not been confirmed or denied by Fox's "people". (Thanks to Laura for pointing out the news piece in the Daily Mail.) In March 2012 Megan confirmed that she was in the process of having Marilyn removed on The Ellen Show where she talked briefly about the painful process (video has since been removed). So far I have seen no other confirmation that she is getting all of her tats removed.

Moon & Star (4)

On the inner aspect of her lower leg above her right ankle, Megan Fox has a crescent moon overlapping a five pointed star.

It is the one visibly colored tattoo that she has.

Here is a look-see at the tattoo:


Brian (5)

Megan Fox had a long term on again off again relationship with actor Brian Austin Green (Terminator, The Sarah Conner Chronicles) that lasted six years before she married him in the summer of 2010. She has a script tattoo of his first name between her pubic bone and right hip.

Here is a look-see at the tattoo:


Yin and Yang (6)

On the inside of Megan's left wrist is a tribal tattoo of two waves entwined like a yin and yang symbol. Sometimes this tattoo looks like it has a bit of color but most of the time it looks like black ink from a distance.

Here is a look-see at the tattoo:


Strength (7)

On the back of her neck just below the hairline Megan has a black ink tattoo of the Chinese symbol of strength in calligraphy. It is a simple tattoo with a strong meaning.

Here is what the tattoo would look like:


Your Favorite Megan Fox Tattoo?

We all like to complain about the ones we hate but now is your chance to share your favorite.

Friedrich Nietzsche (8)

I would like to thank Carly (comments) for pointing out that Megan has a newish (I say "newish" because it is hard to say for sure how long she has actually had it) script on her right ribcage.

At the time of this post there are no clear images of the complete tattoo but it has been pieced together that it is a quote widely attributed to German philosopher Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche (learn more about him below):

"And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music."

Since Megan has been known to change a word or two to make it relevant to her, I would not be surprised if she has changed it up a bit.


Rumored (9)

There is a rumor that Megan has a tattoo of "I Love Steven Johnson" on her inner left thigh but I have not seen it in all the pictures I have surfed through. If you find an image or can confirm this (or a possible tenth) drop me a line through the contact form above.

Another rumor is that she has a line of text on one of her buttocks (thanks to Alex for the tip) that had to be covered by make-up artists for Transformers.

The Breast Tattoo

Ever since the Armani underwear/jeans commercial came out there have been people commenting on a script tattoo over her right breast peeking out from under her bra. I was never really certain about it but now I am pretty sure that it is just the lace from the bra. I watched the video in full screen mode numerous times and paused it. If you look at the shape of the lace on the opposite side of the triangle of the bra and what appears to be a tattoo you will see that they are the same design. Also the Armani ad was posted to their official YouTube site (see ad below) in September 2010. When I looked at bikini shots of Megan from her Hawaii trip in December 2010, which show more breast than the ad does, it is obvious there is no tattoo there. So I am concluding that it is lace in the Armani video and not a breast tattoo.


"The Tip" Armani Video

Speaking of Armani...

When Megan signed on to be a spokesmodel, sorry, "the face" for Emporio Armani the intro promo does not show off any of her tattoos. You can just barely see the edge of her Marilyn Monroe tattoo when her arms are crossed and the camera begins to pan up. But then a year later you can see all of her tattoos in all their glory. The second video is slightly longer but I still think it is interesting.

Now you can add Megan Fox to the top frame of your browser in seconds. There are over 30 styles to choose from and they are free. Visit Firefox for Megan Fox persona.

Making It Official

Megan has entered into the world of social networking by joining Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. At the time of this posting both her Facebook and Twitter accounts were "verified" and while her Instagram account doesn't have an "official" symbol it was posted from her official Facebook page which in my opinion makes it official too.

* Visit Megan's official Facebook page.

* Visit Megan's official Twitter page.

* Visit Megan's official Instagram page.

Make sure you are nice when you visit.

There is no denying that Megan Fox is a hot commodity. More and more franchises would love to get their hands on her so to speak but they settle for a lesser known economic version. Here are just a few actresses that fit the Megan Fox bill of sultry, sexy, and some times dangerous vixen.

Top. Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (The Bold and the Beautiful, FInal Destination 5)

Bottom. Taylor Cole (The Event, CSI: MIami, The Glades)

Both woman at times have strongly reminded me of Megan Fox. Can you think of a few others?


Show Some Love and Leave a Comment But...

Some of you leave some great comments but they never see the light of day because you choose to add the "F" or "S" word. If you cannot make your point without using it then no one is going to take you seriously anyway. Especially in this format.

I use swear words in the day to day all the time so no I am not a prude but when it comes to this lens swear words can turn this lens into a "R" rated one which is something I do not want.

So here is the deal. Tidy up your language and your comment gets posted. It is as simple as that. Thank you for your cooperation and I look forward to reading what you have to say.

Beautiful tattoos for a beautiful lady

la-madame1 on March 14, 2014:

I got 14 tattooes and they all mean something to me.

tonyleather on February 01, 2014:

I think these tattoos spoil the looks of this beautiful girl! Such a shame!

kju385 on November 10, 2013:

She looks stunning in Transformers, I couldn't get enough of her charm...

ReviewsRS on October 17, 2013:

Never seen Megan in anything, but the tattoos increase her sensuality. Like your simple tattoo too.

anonymous on September 10, 2013:

LOVE her. A true diva.

razelle09 on July 26, 2013:

anonymous on May 06, 2013:

@chickie99: Does it really matter? I don't think she will be a scantly clad as she is now when she is 80+

whiskeystill lm on May 03, 2013:

she is awesome..!

annayjo on April 23, 2013:

She's so beautiful, and her tattoos look great on her as well. It is not up to me to judge if I like them or not since those are representations of her thoughts and feelings at that time. Some will be regrets, and others that she wouldn't want to forget forever. Either way, it's a thumbs up for me!

Underrated on April 22, 2013:

She is today what Angelina Jolie was 5-10 years ago

flowtat on April 12, 2013:

I like when girls have nice tiny tattoos

denman4 on April 09, 2013:

Megan is so very hot. Thanks for the interesting info!

theleader300c on April 05, 2013:

I like the tattoos on some women but don't think there is anything special about Megan Fox's tatoos.

Birthday Wishes from Here on April 02, 2013:

She has some lovely tattoos! Thanks a lot for sharing them on your great lens!

MusicMadness LM on March 18, 2013:

I'm thinking (quite secretly) of getting a tattoo these days. I'm sure my kids would be mortified ;) All the more reason to get one.

jayavi on March 18, 2013:

Nice tattoos. Girls should have nice tiny tattoos. thanks for sharing.

Moe Wood (author) from Eastern Ontario on March 14, 2013:

@anonymous: Thanks Tipi, your visits are always much appreciated and welcome.

anonymous on March 14, 2013:

Always good to stop by to see how this page is doing.

I pinned it to Eye Candy on Pinterest for you dear lady. :)

GeekGirl1 on March 11, 2013:

it looks good on her. before deciding to have a tattoo think hard before you do it not everyone can have one.

Gigglesmith on March 09, 2013:

she really pulls tattoos off quite well!

anonymous on March 02, 2013:

I love Megan fox tattoos

moneyrat on March 01, 2013:

Not a huge tattoo fan. I think she has too many. I have seen few girls have small cute tattoos on their lower back.

Fridayonmymind LM on February 25, 2013:

I'm not a tatoo fan either, so painful when they are removed. I know several people regretting their tattoos.

Mega, yes, she is gorgeous.

anonymous on February 25, 2013:

The most beautiful film star that ever was is Gene Tierney....Totally Gorgeous,If you look at Megan Fox,she is virtually indentical in looks,but has ruined her flawless body with stupid areas of inky graffiti,and now regrets ever having them done,even publicly advising kids to never have tattoos,I believe she is going through the very painful laser removal process,which I applaud,but sadly,it could have all been avoided if she had kept her body unmarked in the first place

chickie99 on February 20, 2013:

she's quite lovely; however, what happens to all those tattoos when you're in your 80's?

wapsmad on February 14, 2013:

Soo Sexy...Everywhere she is having tattoos...:LOL

anonymous on February 11, 2013:

I really REALLY liked your detailed explanation behind the tattoos! Personally, one or two is fine by me....I never realized she had so many! In any event, you did an amazing job with the layout of this lens! Thank you so much!

babita-tomar-16 on January 01, 2013:

Amazing tattoo design. She looks gorgeous with these tattoos.

applejacking on December 25, 2012:

Wow. her body is full of tattoos and makes her more sexy.

neverasbad on December 20, 2012:

People need to stop with the Kenji tatoos. It's almost always written incorrectly, or makes no sense because there is no context.

rudhushudu on December 17, 2012:

i know a girl with many tatoos in india she is a hair stylist sapna"

newguitarman on December 05, 2012:

What a pretty girl - I first saw her on two and a half men.

jedwards44 on November 16, 2012:

I have always had a crush on Megan Fox. Maybe I have a thing for celebrities with tattoos. I dunno. I must admit I shed a tear when I found out she married Brian Austen Green. Damn him :)

angelbucket on November 16, 2012:

whats4dinner on November 07, 2012:

huwaw. didnt know that megan fox had that much tats,,, i mean it;s nice, but i think it's too much

anonymous on November 04, 2012:

I like that her tats are very meaningful unlike some hollywood yo-yo's that just get crap because they want a tat

anonymous on November 01, 2012:

Tatoos are great when you're 22 - you look really dumb and stupid when you're older and possibly not quite so "fit"; or to put it another way, I'm glad they're not on any female aquintance of mine

anonymous on October 29, 2012:

I love Megan Fox and her tattoos are really awesome!!

pinoyrecipe on October 26, 2012:

MrMojo01 on August 10, 2012:

Nice lens. Megan has a great body but just a few too many tats for me.

Kristen_Stewart on August 09, 2012:

so sexy

Vortrek Grafix on August 09, 2012:

I concur. If one needs to spike ones points with profanity to get noticed, then the point is unlikely to be noteworthy on its own merit to begin with. I'm no prude either. In fact I'm very liberal, but I generally do find the literacy content of profane comments to be mediocre at best. Now as for Megan Fox, certainly nothing mediocre there. Tastefully presented images of the feminine mystique. Now that's class! Nice lens.

udaddy14 on August 08, 2012:

Nice lens!
