If you haven't heard, Ben Affleck recently got an enormous tattoo of a rainbow phoenix. It literally covers his entire back, and it's trippy AF.

He reportedly got it around the time his 10-year marriage with Jennifer Garner was ending.

I guess it was his way to sort of be like, "I don't need a wife, I have this giant phoenix rising from the ashes! This mythological creature is the only companion I need!"

Yeah, I think that's what he was thinking.

Jennifer Garner actually commented on her ex-husband's tattoo in an interview with Vanity Fair.

She told the magazine,

You know what we would say in my hometown about that? 'Bless his heart.'

She added,

A phoenix rising from the ashes. Am I the ashes in this scenario? I take umbrage. I refuse to be the ashes.

You tell him, Jennifer. You ain't no ashes, girlfriend.

Another one of Ben's ex-lovers has an opinion on the tat as well. Remember when Ben and Jennifer Lopez were together? Good times.

While playing a game called Plead the Fifth on "Watch What Happens: Live," Lopez was asked to give her honest opinion about Ben's new back tattoo.

JLo had no problem speaking her mind.

She told show host Andy Cohen,

It's awful! I mean, I would tell him that. I would tell him, like, what are you doing? It has too many colors. His tattoos always had too many colors... They shouldn't be so colorful. You know what I mean? They should be like, cooler.

You can listen to JLo's response in the clip below.


Eh, now that I think about it, maybe there shouldn't be a "next time." I think that rainbow phoenix has enough ink to last a lifetime.
