Megan Fox’s Grazia cover reveals her tattoo was airbrushed away

The Juice

Apparently, Grazia magazine prefers Megan Fox with a little less ink.

The "Jennifer's Body" actress smoulders on this month's cover of the French fashion magazine in a backless dress, showing off a tattoo on her right shoulder: a quotation from "King Lear" that reads, "We will all laugh at gilded butterflies."

The problem? The magazine appears to have removed another tattoo that is usually visible on Fox's right rib cage, a quotation that says, "Those who danced were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music."

Though the same photo appears inside the magazine with Fox's rib-cage ink intact, Grazia airbrushed out the sizable text for the cover, a tattoo that the star reportedly got in "honour" of actor Mickey Rourke a few years ago. A paparazzo snapped a photo of the substantial ink in May 2010, and it was officially revealed in her 2011 Armani jeans ad.

Fox was inspired to get the tattoo after she filmed the movie "Passion Play" with Rourke in 2009. In the critically panned film, Fox played a winged sideshow performer who falls for Rourke's ex-drug-addict jazz musician.

"He's so genuine and so sweet and so talented. I just love him to death," she told of her co-star. "I just love him very much and think he's very special."
