Both of Ben Affleck's Ex-Jennifers Hate His Enormous Backpiece

Neither of the Jennifer's are that stoked on Ben Affleck's enormous back tattoo.

That's right. Around July of 2015, photos showing a glimpse of Affleck's back began to surface. The photos, while only really giving a peak of the actor's lower back, revealed that Affleck definitely had something epic going on back there.

Eventually, some time later while on set filming a new movie, even MORE photos surfaced- but these were much more revealing. With Affleck wearing an open-backed hospital robe for a scene, the photos showing an enormous, full-color backpiece depicting a rising phoenix.

Flash forward to now. Ex-Fiance Jennifer Lopez appeared on Watch What Happens Life with Andy Cohen over at Bravo and got super candid with the host on a variety of topics- one being her former flame's (pun intended) new tattoo. Hear what she had to say below (around 1:15.)

"It's awful! And I would tell him that. What are you doing?," Lopez told Cohen. "It has too many colors! His tattoos always have too many colors. They shouldn't be so colorful, you know what I mean? They should be... cooler."

I feel you, girl. I'm more of a black and grey kinda chick myself. A full color mythical creature isn't necessarily my jam, either.

While Lopez was pretty bold with her opinions, the OTHER Jennifer-ex-wife Jennifer Garner- was (a little) sweeter about it. In the most perfect, condescending way ever.

"You better not blame that hideous tattoo on me, Ben."
"You better not blame that hideous tattoo on me, Ben."

"You know what we would say in my hometown about that? 'Bless his heart," Garner says jokingly. "A phoenix rising from the ashes. Am I the ashes in this scenario?"
"I take umbrage. I refuse to be the ashes," she added playfully, probably to, you know- not sound like a total asshole. I'm with you Jen, it's okay. Own it.

We'll quit ragging on you now, Ben. We still love you. I will say though, maybe next time- before getting an enormous mythical bird creature rising from flames tattooed on your back, you should consult with some loved ones. Ultimately it's your body and it's your decision- but some feedback never hurts. And this one seems to be pretty unanimous. 
And hey, just throwing it out there.. if you ever need to find an artist who is particularly skilled at large-scale coverups- we got you.
