Don't Feel Bad, Ben Affleck: Here Are 7 Other Equally Terrible Celebrity Tattoos

The Batman actor is in good company when it comes to bad ink.

Ben Affleck's rising phoenix tattoo may have made its debut back in December, but the Batman star's ink has become a hot-button issue as of late after two of his famous exes called it out for being kind of ugly. First, soon to be ex-wife Jennifer Garner wanted to take no responsibility as the muse for the tat. Then, ex-fiancee Jennifer Lopez straight up called the tattoo "awful" on Watch What Happens Live.

However, Ben shouldn't feel too bad. His phoenix tattoo is just the latest in a long history of celebs sporting terrible ink. Below, we've provided some proof.

1.  Angelina Jolie

In a time before she morphed into America's sweetheart, the Oscar winner was Hollywood's ultimate bad girl. And in addition to rocking viles of then-husband Billy Bob Thornton's blood, she also proudly wore his name on her sleeve. She gets extra points for the Chinese dragon.

2.  Megan Fox

There was a time when the New Girl actress rocked a Marilyn Monroe tat on her forearm. However, she decided to have it removed in 2011, reportedly sharing, "I do not want to attract this kind of negative energy in my life." Whatever you say.

3.  Justin Bieber

 

If the eyes are the window to the soul, then the charttopper might be onto something. Back in 2013, Bieber had an eye inked on the inside of his elbow. The eye was meant to symbolize the fact that his mom is always watching. OK, then...  

4.  Pamela Anderson

If there's any tattoo style that really speaks to a bygone era like the '90s, it's that of barbed wire ink; it's right up there with tribal tats. Though, it may help to remember Pam was in a a movie called Barb Wire. Excuses, excuses.

5.  Mike Tyson

Speaking of tribal tattoos...

6.  Steve-O

We probably shouldn't be surprised that the former Jackass star has his face and signature tattooed on his back. In fact, it's the least surprising thing he's ever done — considering he's done this and this.

7.  Scarlett Johansson

For a woman as flawless as ScarJo, we're a bit surprised she would have a tattoo as quirky as the "sunrise over the ocean" piece of ink that's on her forearm. We guess it's a you-live-and-you-learn kind of situation.
