Ben Affleck's Huge Tattoo Is Real


Ben Affleck is officially an ink fan!

The 43-year-old actor was spotted on the set of his film "Live By Night in Los Angeles" earlier this week and his massive back tattoo was on full display. The multi-colored tat appears to be of a phoenix-rising and definitely looks real.

The mythological creature symbolizes rebirth when the bird rises from the ashes. Perhaps the tattoo is a nod to the big life changes he's made after splitting with his longtime wife, Jennifer Garner.


Affleck and Garner announced their divorce in June, mere days shy of their 10th wedding anniversary. The A-list pair are parents to children Violet, 9, Seraphina, 6, andSamuel, 3. "We go forward with love and friendship for one another and a commitment to co-parenting our children whose privacy we ask to be respected during this difficult time," the duo said in a joint statement.

While this is the first full glimpse we're getting of his new stamp, sources told E! that his new art isn't new and he's had it as early as July. His latest tattoo will round out his other big pieces of body art, which include a fish and a skull and crossbones on his right arm, barbed wire on his right bicep, initials on his shoulder blade, and a dolphin on his right hip.

We wonder if his ex Jennifer Garner is a fan of the huge tattoo.
