When one thinks of Ben Affleck the first thing that comes to mind is a Hollywood hunk not a man that has several tattoos covering his shoulders. arms and back. Most people are not aware of Ben's little tattoos collection, the main reason behind that is Ben is ashamed of his ink now. He admits he got most of his ink when he was around 16 and wishes he would not have chosen half of the designs he did.
Below is a list of some of Ben's tattoo collection that he now regrets.
1. Barb wire across his right bicep.
2. A dolphin located somewhere on his body covering up the name of his High School Sweetheart.
3. A huge cross on his left arm.
4. A fish intertwined with a skull and crossbones on his right arm.
5. The initials "OV" on his shoulder blade with MOH NON TE written above it and TA OR underneath it.
Ben majorly regrets all of his tattoos and does not have a problem admitting it. He is even interested in getting his tattoos removed by a laser."I was young. It was fun and cool. I'm sorry now, but it is a good lesson in decisions that have important and long repercussions."Ben also says that he tries to stay away from roles that require him to be shirtless or wear short sleeves because he hates the make up you have to wear to cover up tattoos.
He states that the process is very time consuming and a little strange. "It's the equivalent of being sand-blasted, but it leaves the tattoo undetectable."The main reason Bentattoos has to do with his acting."They get in the way of my being able to play someone else. Every time I'm sitting in a makeup chair or putting on a costume I'm reminded I'm me, not the person I'm supposed to be playing."
