Marilyn Monroe got an overnight tattoo, courtesy of an unknown vandal.
The 26-foot-tall statue of the screen legend continued to draw gawkers to North Michigan Avenue Saturday, some of whom posed smiling for pictures next to an ink message, apparently scrawled with a marker of some kind on the back of her right calf.
The graffiti appears to include the words “Pi$tola” and “Ariel” with a heart between them, along with other doodles.
Witnesses noticed the damage to Monroe Saturday morning and informed police, who are investigating.
