Is Megan Fox's tattoo of Marilyn Monroe disappearing? The ink definitely seemed less prevalent in recent photographs, sparking reports that she may be lasering the Hollywood icon away.

When the actress got the tattoo in 2009, she said, "I really admire Marilyn Monroe, but I would never try to emulate her. I got the tattoo as a warning. It warns me not to let myself be treated so badly by the film industry so that it breaks me down."

The forearm portrait isn't Fox's only ink: among others she has a Chinese symbol on her neck, a quote from Shakespeare's "King Lear" on her back and a crescent moon on her ankle.
