We're sure there are heaps of you out there who regret a tattoo. 

And luckily for you, you're not big time movie stars who can get mocked mercilously around the world.

Ben Affleck was papped recently sporting this ridiculous back tattoo...lol!

Yeah, it's pretty dramatic. The ink was first noticed in 2015, shortly after he split from Jennifer Garner, with paparazzi snapping what looked to be a lower back tattoo.

A few months later, he was seen on the set of Live By Night with an open back hospital gown that put the design on full display.

Social media went wild with hate for the design.

When ex-wife Jennifer Garner was quizzed about her thoughts on the tatt, she told Vanity Fair: "You know what we would say in my hometown about that? 'Bless his heart'.

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

His former fiancée Jennifer Lopez was also asked about it on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen.

She told the TV host: "It's awful! What are you doing? His tattoos always have too many colours, they shouldn't be so colourful.

"They should be cooler."

Weirdly, when pictures first emerged of Affleck's tattoo, he tried to claim it was fake and just for an upcoming movie. Ummm that phoenix did not come off in the shower, honey.
