Megan Fox debuted a new collarbone tattoo at the 2020 American Music Awards on Sunday, and fans are convinced that it's a tribute to her boyfriend Machine Gun Kelly.
As Fox and Kelly, who met as costars while filming "Midnight in the Switchgrass" before the pandemic, made their first awards show appearance as a couple at the AMAs, many viewers overlooked the small black "el pistolero" tattoo on the actress' collarbone.
Upon further investigation, fans speculated that the phrase, which is Spanish for "the gunman," is in reference to her boyfriend Colson Baker's stage name, Machine Gun Kelly.
Though Fox hasn't confirmed the inspiration behind the ink, the "Jennifer's Body" actress did express her admiration for the musician while introducing him ahead of his first-ever AMAs performance.
"Once in a lifetime, magic can happen," Fox told the audience, adding, "For this next performer, we've all been under his spell since his debut in 2012."
Her collarbone tattoo is the first visible evidence that the couple may have gotten permanent ink in honor of each other.
However, Kelly's song "Banyan Tree (Interlude)," a track from his September 2020 album "Tickets to my Downfall" that features a conversation between the couple, hinted that they've gotten tattoos together.
"That was four months ago that we were right here, and I met you. That's not possible," the actress tells Kelly.
She continues: "Like you just got my initials tattoo'd on you, and I got your nickname tattooed on me."
The Spanish phrase on her collarbone may be her first tattoo that appears to be inspired by her current relationship, but Fox is no stranger to body art.
From the Friedrich Nietzsche quote on her back to the Chinese character behind her neck, the actress has numerous tattoos, some of which she's admittedly regretted.
At one point, the "Transformers" star had a portrait of late actress Marilyn Monroe on her forearm. According to Us Weekly, Fox said she got the tattoo as a "warning."
"I really admire Marilyn Monroe, but I would never try to emulate her. I got the tattoo as a warning," she reportedly said, continuing, "It warns me not to let myself be treated so badly by the film industry so that it breaks me down."
Two years later, Fox confirmed that she was removing the tattoo because of its "negative energy."
"I'm removing it. It is a negative character, as she suffered from personality disorders and was bipolar. I do not want to attract this kind of negative energy in my life," she told Italian magazine Amica, according to The Independent.
Representatives for Fox didn't immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.
