Megan Fox has confirmed what has been apparent from recent photographs: the 25-year old actress is in the process of removing the prominent Marylin Monroe tattoo from the inside of her right forearm.

“I’m removing it,” Fox told Italian magazine Amica. “[Monroe] is a negative character, as she suffered from personality disorders and was bipolar. I do not want to attract this kind of negative energy in my life.”

According to Fox, she originally got the tattoo because “It warns me not to let myself be treated so badly by the film industry so that it breaks me down.”

Check out the Monroe tat in better times in the video below, along with some of her other ink.
