Remember that huge back tattoo Ben Affleck said it was fake? Apparently not so much.
Two years ago, after he was spotted sporting an enormous new back tattoo, Affleck told Extra magazine the ink was for an upcoming movie. “I actually do have a number of tattoos, but I try to have them in places where you don’t have to do a lot of cover up,” he said. “They get sort of addicting, tattoos, after a while.”
Well—apparently Affleck went through a serious tattoo addiction because we’ve recently learned that the ink is not only not fake, but that it is probably the most hideous tat we’ve seen in a long time.
And though the colorful phoenix is extremely disturbing, the weirdest part about this tattoo is that poor naïve Ben thought we wouldn’t find out about it—which makes the mockery even better, at least for us!
Is this a cry for help? Was Jennifer Garner thinking of this terrible tattoo when she made that weird face at the Oscars? Why does the tattoo artist hate Ben Affleck so much? Twitter has lots of questions—and thousands of jokes—on Affleck’s not-so-fake ink! See what people are saying in our photo gallery above.
