Everyone's roasting Ben Affleck's unintentionally hilarious back tattoo

Ben Affleck's giant back tattoo is real and on display two years after he claimed it was fake

But now, Affleck has been outed as a tattoo fibber, given the photos that were taken of him and his co-stars this past week on the Hawaiian beach.

Affleck was first spotted with the tattoo in December 2015, while working on the set of "Live by Night", Us Weekly reported.

It shows the mythological bird soaring across his back and bursting from yellow, blue and orange flames and stretches down the entire length of his spine to just above his bum.

The Batman actor had said the tattoo was fake in an interview with "Extra" in March 2016.

People magazine ran a photo of Affleck at the beach with a tattoo of what looks like a colorful phoenix rising from his lower back.

Don't mock Ben Affleck's phoenix tattoo. "I take umbrage", she said.

In a 2016 interview with Vanity Fair, Garner suggested she definitely wasn't a fan.

"It's very bad! What are you doing?" she laughed. "They get sort of addictive, tattoos, after awhile".

And ex-girlfriend Jennifer Lopez, who dated Affleck in 2003, gave her honest opinion about the tat to Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live. You know what I mean? "They should be cooler", she added.

Ben Affleck's back in the headlines, literally. The "Gone Girl" actor allegedly got the ink after then-wife Jennifer Garner filed for divorce after 10 years of marriage. Another user, whose account hilariously named "Ben Affleck's Tattoo", commented in capslock, "I KNEW IT!"

- pixelated boat [ASMR] binaural ~4 hours~ (@pixelatedboat)Wow, did you guys see Ben Affleck's tattoo!? Truly a great day to be alive because of this obscenely dumb tattoo.

However, as he hit the beach shirtless in Hawaii on Friday, nearly two years later, Affleck was once again spotted showing off the tattoo.

Ben was photographed sans shirt while filming a new movie, "Triple Frontier", alongside Charlie Hunnam, Oscar Isaac and Garrett Hedlund.

"Triple Frontier" will premiere on Netflix, but has yet to announce a release date.
