Goodbye Norma Jean.

After years on starlet Megan Fox's arm, the tattoo of Marilyn Monroe is fading into nothingness, with a little help from laser surgery. Fox has finally explained why the ink of the icon is going away.

"She was a negative person, she was mentally unstable, bipolar," Fox tells the Italian fashion magazine Amica. "I do not want to attract this kind of negative energy in my life."

Monroe was known to have bouts of severe depression. Her former physician, Hyman Engelberg, said in the documentary "Marilyn Monroe: The Final Days" Monroe "was a manic depressive." The screen legend died of a drug overdose in 1962 at age 36.

Earlier this year, photos surfaced of Fox showing a distinctly lighter version of the tattoo, prompting speculation that the 25-year-old actress was having Marilyn zapped off her arm. The former "Transformers" star has now confirmed it.

Fox didn't dismiss the option of having more work done on her body, especially when it comes to one of her many tattoos.

"Who knows, maybe I'll remove the others too, but the laser hurts," she says.

Husband Brian Austin Green is certainly hoping the ink of his name on Fox's hip isn't next to go.
