Ben Affleck’s Back Tattoo Is Real Despite His Previous Denials

Ben Affleck has a massive tattoo of a phoenix on his back, and he’s not covering it up anymore. The actor previously denied that the tattoo was real, claiming in an interview with Mario Lopez that the tattoo was fake and he was sporting it for a movie.

The tattoo was first spotted back in December 2015 after the actor separated from Jennifer Garner. Garner commented on her ex’s tattoo in an interview with “Vanity Fair” in 2016. The actress expressed her displeasure with Affleck’s new ink, saying that if the phoenix rising from the ashes was in reference to their failed marriage, she would take offense to that.

Another former flame, Jennifer Lopez, didn’t appear to like the tattoo either. In a 2016 appearance on Andy Cohen’s “Watch What Happens Live”, the actress said that the tattoo is “awful” and “too colorful”. She said that Affleck always picks tattoos with too many colors and he should try to choose “cooler” tattoos.

The photographs of Affleck’s tattoo came after paparazzi spotted him training for the Netflix film, “Triple Frontier”, in Hawaii over the weekend. The 45-year-old father of three also has a barbed wire tattoo across his right bicep, an elaborate tattoo of a fish, skull, and crossbones on his right arm, and a dolphin on his right hip. Affleck got the dolphin tattoo to cover up the name of his high-school girlfriend.
