Ben Affleck has been mercilessly teased over a giant tattoo he’s been sporting on his back since early March. A large bird, raising its wings as though ready to take flight, the artwork seems to depict a phoenix.

Even ex-wife Jennifer Garner and ex-fiancee Jennifer Lopez think the tattoo looks stupid.

Alas it seems Ben Affleck’s phoenix isn’t rising after all. The large bird emblazoned onto his back is nothing but a fake–some artwork created to look like a tattoo for an upcoming film role.
The Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice star shared in a recent interview with Extra’s Mario Lopez that the phoenix definitely won’t rise.

“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…they get sort of addictive, tattoos, after awhile,” Ben Affleck told the Extra host.
Were you a fan of Ben Affleck’s new (fake) tattoo? Or did you side with both Jennifer Garner and Jennifer Lopez in thinking the tattoo was way too big–and ugly?
