The tattoo in question, one of a reported eight that 25-year-old Fox has also over her body, was somewhat inspired by Mickey Rourke, her co-star in the romantic drama "Passion Play." In June 2010, the actress told MTV News, "I actually got a tattoo that is sort of in honor of him. It's on my ribs. I don't know if it's been photographed yet, but it'll come out eventually, I'm sure. I just love him very much and think he's very special." In a follow-up interview a few months later, she explained the ink "is a Nietzsche quote that sort of basically is about marching to the beat of your own drummer and not being afraid to do that. I was saying that it reminds me of Mickey, of course, because he clearly is not marching to anyone else's drummer, drumbeat, and that's all. It's not necessarily an homage to him."

In addition to her tattoos in honor of Rourke, Shakespeare, and Monroe, Fox also has one for her husband, Brian Austin Green. His name is right above her bikini line.
If they split, we're not sure what would be more painful — the breakup or lasering that one off too.
