Gilded Butterflies

Gilded Butterflies is listed (or ranked) 4 on the list Hot Megan Fox Tattoos

Appearing in Old English font, the phrase “we will all laugh at gilded butterflies” is a Megan Fox tattoo on her right upper back. Sitting over her right scapula, the phrase is taken from, though not a direct quote from, Act V of Scene III of the Shakespeare play “King Lear.” The full quote, as spoken by King Lear’s daughter Cordelia, says:
No, no, no, no! Come, let’s away to prison.
We two alone will sing like birds i’ th’ cage.
When thou dost ask me blessing, I’ll kneel down
And ask of thee forgiveness. So we’ll live,
And pray, and sing, and tell old tales, and laugh
At gilded butterflies, and hear poor rogues
Talk of court news; and we’ll talk with them too-
Who loses and who wins; who’s in, who’s out-
And take upon ‘s the mystery of things,
As if we were God’s spies; and we’ll wear out,
In a wall’d prison, packs and sects of great ones
That ebb and flow by th’ moon.
