Recent sightings of Megan Fox show that the tattoo of Marilyn Monroe on her right forearm has significantly faded following laser tattoo removal treatment.
The actress had originally chosen a tattoo of the legendary screen icon’s face because of what she represented. It seems for Megan Fox, that like many people with tattoos, a tattoo’s significance can change over time, and no longer portray ideas that represent the wearer.
The actress has been quoted as saying that due to Marilyn Monroe’s problems with mental health issues, she has come to represent a ‘negative energy’ that Fox does not want to associate with herself.
Luckily, the rather large black and white tattoo has responded well to tattoo removal treatment and is fading fast. Tattoo ink generally remains trapped within the skin, as the ink particles are too large for the body to break down and remove.
Lasers target these coloured particles, and pulses of light cause them to heat up and then disintegrate. Once they are small enough, the body is able to remove them from their fixed place within the layers of skin.
Treatment is accumulative and a course of treatment is usually required, however, the surrounding skin is not damaged. Laser tattoo removal is really the only way to deal with large unwanted tattoos.
