Megan Fox Turns To Laser: Best Way To Get Rid Of Marilyn Tattoo

Maybe you should, "Think before you ink."

Actress Megan Fox is trying to make her big Marilyn Monroe tattoo disappear for good from her right forearm.

You can see from the top photo that the tat of the iconic blonde beauty' is now almost a ghost on the slender arm of the 24-year-old movie star, who was in NYC for an event last week.

In the other photos, take a peek at Angelina Jolie's back and the stunning tiger tattoo. The gorgeous film actress has more than a dozen tats. And she, too, once wanted to get rid of one of her tats. It was the big Billy Bob in ink on her left arm. Following their divorce, Angelina had the memory lasered off.

Speaking of tattoo removal, unfortunately, when the ink covers a large area of skin, and is done in heavy black ink like Megan's Marilyn tattoo, one can expect several visits to the dermatologist for some major lasering.

And the procedure isn't cheap. Tattoo laser removal can cost anywhere from a few hundred dollars up into the thousands of dollars, depending on the size and location of the tattoo, the number of visits involved, and so on. The lousy thing, medical insurance will not pay for tattoo removal since it is considered cosmetic in nature. Plus the procedure is a bit uncomfortable.

During laser tattoo removal, the procedure causes the pigment in the ink to fragment, or break into smaller particles that are then removed by the body's immune system.

We suppose you could say, 'Good-bye, Norma Jean.'

We're not sure if Megan Fox has any more ink ideas up her sleeve.
