Fox reveals tattoo removal pain

The Transformers star grew tired of displaying the face of the late Hollywood icon on her forearm and turned to experts to get rid of the prominent piece of body art.

But the first session left Fox wincing in pain, with the star likening the ink removal to “little kernels of popcorn popping up” from her skin.

She tells U.S. talk show host Jay Leno, “So far I’m getting one removed, the Marilyn that I had. That’s only one session that I’ve had so far and it hurts really bad.

“It’s really painful – getting them is not that bad, obviously because I have so many… but the laser, I can’t explain the exact science to you… what it looks like when it’s hitting the ink is your skin sort of explodes and looks like little kernels of popcorn popping up.

“It’s dramatic and it’s incredibly painful. They can’t numb it enough to make the pain go away.”
