Now you see it: Megan Fox's tattoo of Marilyn Monroe on her right arm seemed much fainter last week, left, than it did at the 2009 premiere of Transformers
She's one of Hollywood's current leading ladies and a muse of Armani - and it seems that Megan Fox has decided that her numerous tattoos are no longer in keeping with her image.
The 24-year-old brunette beauty appears to be in the process of having one of the most prominent inkings removed - a portrait of screen legend Marilyn Monroe on her right forearm.
Some parts of the design appear to have disappeared already and all of it seems a lot fainter than normal.
A heavy black tattoo like that would need numerous painful bouts of lasering to remove it totally, according to experts.
Former Transformers star Megan has eight or nine examples of body art as well as the doodling of her blonde bombshell idol, whose real name was Norma Jeane.
Other inkings include; a quote on her shoulder reading 'we will all laugh at gilded butterflies' and a tribal mark on her left wrist.

She showed off the fainter design on her arm as she accompanied husband Brian Austin Green to a party celebrating Jaguar cars, and in particular, the 50th Anniversary of the company's E-Type at the IAC Building in New York City last week.
Her body art has been previously covered up by stage make-up in a host of her movies and in some of her adverts.
Whether or not her tattoos will have a starring role in her future projects however has yet to be seen.

She is currently working on the Untitled Judd Apatow Project alongside Leslie Mann and Paul Rudd.
And another project is The Crossing, a crime thriller about a young couple who get caught up in a drug trafficking scheme during their holiday in Mexico.
There has been no comment yet however regarding the disappearing Marilyn from Fox's people.
