Turns Out Ben Affleck’s Massive Back Tattoo Is Indeed Real …03.22.18

It appears Ben Affleckneeds to backtrack on his previous statements about his back tattoo.

The actor was spotted training for a film over the weekend in Hawaii, revealing the massive, colorful back tattoo of a phoenix he previously insisted was temporary. (See it around 0:20 in the video above.)

Afflecks gigantic tattoo first rose from the ashesmade headlinesin July 2015, shortly after he split from Jennifer Garner.

Paparazzi finally got a photo of the red, yellow and blue tattoo when the actor was on the set of Live by Night later that year. But in an interview with Mario Lopez, Affleck denied the ink was real.

[Its] fake for a movie, he said. I actually do have a number of tattoos but I try to have them in places where you dont have to do a lot of cover-up. They get sort of addictive, tattoos, after a while.

In an interview with Vanity Fair, Garner made it clear she didnt approve of her exs ink one bit.

You know what we would say in my hometown about that? Bless hisheart. A phoenix rising from the ashes. Am I the ashes in this scenario?the actress said in 2016. I take umbrage. I refuse to be the ashes.

Jennifer Lopez,Afflecks former fiancee, also didnt have kind things to say about the tat when she appeared on Watch What Happens Live in 2016.

Its awful! I would tell him that, she said. I would tell him, What are you doing? It has too many colors. His tattoos always had too many colors.

They shouldnt be so colorful, she added. They should be, like, cooler. I dont know.

Same.

Ben Affleck’s Massive, Very Real Phoenix Back Tattoo Gets …03.22.18

Ben Affleck’s back in the headlines, literally.

The “Justice League” star was all over the internet this weekend thanks to some shirtless beach photos showing off the massive phoenix tattoo that covers his entire back. Though he initially said the ink was temporary way back in 2016, the new shots prove it’s the real deal.

Ben was photographed sans shirt while filming a new movie, “Triple Frontier,” alongside Charlie Hunnam, Oscar Isaac and Garrett Hedlund. Though all the photos are kind of amazing, it’s Affleck’s ink that generated most of the talk online.

“[It’s] fake for a movie,” Affleck said of the piece in 2016. “I actually do have a number of tattoos but I try to have them in places where you don’t have to do a lot of cover up they get sort of addictive, tattoos, after awhile.”

Despite his outright lie at the time, exes Jennifer Garner and Jennifer Lopez both chimed in with some serious shade about the tattoo as well. “You know what we would say in my hometown about that? ‘Bless his heart,'” Garner told Vanity Fair. “A phoenix rising from the ashes. Am I the ashes in this scenario? I take umbrage. I refuse to be the ashes.”

On “Watch What Happens Live,” J.Lo added, “It’s awful! What are you doing? His tattoos always have too many colors, they shouldnt be so colorful. They should be cooler.”

With the new photos confirming the tatt’s authenticity, Twitter piled on the haterade — see the most savage reactions below:

Tattoo Healing Process Stages A Day-By-Day Guide …03.22.18

Each and every new tattoo goes through a certain healing process. This process can normally be split up into about three different stages and those stages can be split up further day-by-day.

We will show you exactly what to expect during your very own tattoo healing process.

More…

Like any other type of open wound inflicted on the body, tattooed skin must protect itself from harmful outside bacteria and regenerate itself back to full health after any damage has been done.

This regeneration is what a tattoo goes through as it heals, right up to the point where the skin is back to how it was before the tattoo, minus the small fact that it is now filled up with thousands of tiny pigmentsof ink!

2. Stage Two(Days 7-14) – Itching and flaking begins, and this continues until all layers of dead skin and scabbing have fallen off.

3. Stage Three (Days 15-30) – Tattoo looks fully healed but may look slightly cloudy for a few weeks. Deeper layers of skin are still repairing, so continue to look afteryour tattoo.

This first stage of healing starts as soon as you get off the tattooists chair. The area in which the ink has been injected into is now a large open wound and the skin will start producing plasma straight away to begin the clotting and scabbing process.

At this point your artist will most-likely clean the area with an antibacterial soap and proceed to bandage/wrap the tattoo for protection against contact with bacteria until you get home.

All artists vary with their own approach, but lots of them advise to keep the bandage/wrap on for 12-24 hours.

A new and wrapped tattoo

Once the bandage is taken off (carefully), its quite likely that yourtattooed area will be weeping and oozing with blood/plasma/lymphatic fluid/ink this is completely normal and is the bodies way of trying to repair itself.

At this point (which will either be later on in the day of your sitting, or the next day) you will want to very gently wash away as much blood/ink/gooey plasma as you can.

The best way to do this is to use warm water and sensitive fragrance-free soap, and applying circular motions with your clean fingers.

It’s important not to use any rough wash cloths or towels as these could pull off any drying scabs and delay healing within certain areas of the tattoo.

More on how to clean anew tattoo here, or watch the video below:

My Top Tattoo Soap & Aftercare Picks

H2Ocean’s aftercare kit is a specially-picked combination of tattoo aftercare products containing everything you needto get your new ink through the all-important tattoo healingstagesas perfectly as possible.

Gently wash your new tattoo with the supplied soap todisinfect the area while keeping the colors bright and vibrant. The soap isdesigned to be super-sensitive on theskin, and contains completely natural ingredients.

Once the area has been cleaned and dried, simply apply a small amount of the supplied H2Ocean moisturizing lotion to ensure the skin is re-hydrated and re-nourished to help promote fast and high-quality healing.

Check out the full H2Ocean aftercare kit here.

The oozing plasma (clear gloopy liquid) on your tattoo is what helps your skin to scab. By keeping plasma levels to a minimum you will help keep away the big unsightly scabs you normally see on a deep wound that can dry out and begin to crack if you’re not careful.

Therefore its important to try and wash off as much wet plasma as possible over the first few days of getting a tattoo.

At this point in the healing process your tattoo is going to be very sore for the first several days, especially if its a big piece. The feeling can be described as moderate-to-severe sunburn.

The tattooed area will also feel warm to the touch for a few days (if the warmness hangs around for more than a week, go and see a doctor to ensure that there isnt any infection present).

Along with the soreness, the tattooed area will be red, probably raised above the skin slightly, and potentially bruised from some blood leaking underneath your top layers of skin.

A brand new tattoo still very red and sore looking

Bruising is normally kept to a minimum as long as the artist isn’t too rough and the needle isn’t forced too deep though you can sometimes also expect some swelling and extra tender areas where the needle has had to pass several times (usually on dark shaded areas).

The swelling around the tattooed area of your skin is mostly down to your body increasing blood flow to the area.

This is in order to push more (immune system helping) white blood cells to the area to assist in fighting foreign bodies trying to enter the open wound. The warmness of the area is down to the increase blood flow.

All of the above reactions are completely natural and are totally expected to some extent or another during the first stage of the tattoo healing process.

Having said that though, if you start to experience any extreme bruising or redness around you tattoo, especially ifa few days have gone by since getting the tattoo, go and see a doctor.

Redness and/or bruisingaround the tattoo that is getting worse and not better can be the sign of a tattoo infection setting in.

Towards the end of this stage (after a few days) you will start to see the formation of scabbing.

As said previously, as long as you’re clearing the plasma and excess ink off of your tattooed area occasionally (2-3 times a day initially),the scabbing shouldn’t be too thick and heavy.

Your tattoo will start to look more ‘cloudy’ and duller than it initially did, and this is normal. The sharpness will come back slowly following all of the healing stages.

A heavily scabbing tattoo

This stage can get irritating when it comes to sleeping if the tattoo is in an awkward location like on your shoulder or side.It can be difficult to get a good sleep in a lot of circumstances due to the soreness of the tattoo and the fact that you’ll want to keep the tattoo from rubbing and sticking onto bed sheets.

Check out our article about sleeping with a new tattoo for more information about getting a good night’s sleep with new ink.

Blot/dab your tattoo dry instead of rubbing as this can pull the scabs off, removing ink in the process.

A lot of people regard this as the worst stage in the tattoo healing process. This stage is infamous due to the dreaded itching.

At this point in the process, the scabs are hard and well-formed, and a few of the smaller ones are probably ready to start flaking off.

This is going to continue for around another week. Your skin is going to become very dry and very flaky (personally, this is my least favourite part of the whole process).

While all new tattoos will eventually flake, some tattoos will peel so lightly that you may not even be able to see the flaking process.

For this reason, don’t getconcerned if yours doesn’t look like it’s flaking – I can assure you that the process will still be occurring – it will likely just be on a smaller scale.

Lighter tattoos, especially ones primarily made up with white ink, will tend to flake and peel much lighter than darker, blockier tattoos.

At this stage, the dryness of your healing skin causes it to starting flaking, and this flaking in itself is what starts to cause the itching that everybody talks about.

A tattoo that is starting to flake and peel

The secret to preventing itching is to keep the skin moisturized. DO NOT SCRATCH YOUR TATTOO this is very important and can ruin a beautiful tattoo if youre not careful.

If you MUST relieve the itch, instead of scratching, try lightly tapping the area or give it another wash/moisturize. We have an amazing article written specifically to help with tattoo itching.

My Opinion On The Itch

I think Tattoo itchiness is overhyped I experience very mild itching occasionally during the healing process but nothing extreme or unbearable. Just keep your skin well moisturized and the itchiness should be nothing more than a mild annoyance.

I personally put my lack of itchiness down to the choice of tattoo lotion I put on my skin. I use an exceptionally well priced and popular product called Hustle Butter which moisturizes and soothes tattooed skin extremely effectively.

I very rarely experience any itching at all while the lotion is applied between washes, and if itching does flare up if I forget to moisturize straight after washing, rubbing in a light layer of Hustle Butter stops it right-away once applied.

During stage 2, you will want to moisturize your tattoo as often as possible some people advise 6-7 times a day, but moisturizing with a good quality fragrance-free lotion each time after washing should be enough to keep you tattoo moist enough to prevent extreme dryness and itching.

Ensure that you tattoo is completely dry before applying lotion. Water trapped between the lotion and the skin can cause your scabs to soak up water and become gloopy, making the scabs far more susceptible to being pulled off after sticking to something.

If you apply too much lotion, blot off the excess with a paper towel until only a faint shine can be seen on the surface you dont want to suffocate your tattoo with lotion, it needs to breathe while healing.

A Pick of my Favourite Tattoo Aftercare Lotions

Hustle Butter

The best tattoo lotion I’ve ever personally usedis a (vegan-friendly) tattoo aftercare product called Hustle Butter.This stuff works amazinglyduring the healing process – not only tokeepyour tattoo really well hydrated but it’s also very good at soothing that annoying itching.

Many other buyers also advise thatwhen using it from the very start of the healing processit appears to decrease healing timesand seems toreduceheavy scabbing.

Read more about Hustle Butter here. Have a quick look at some of the customer reviews and you’ll see why it’s one of the mostpopular tattoo aftercare products.

After Inked Tattoo Lotion

After Inked is another very popular tattoo aftercare lotion that claims to be all of the following: Non-Petroleum based, Paraben-Free, Fragrance-Free, Vegan, Cruelty-Free and Gluten-Free.

The lotion is super skin-friendly and can be used throughout the whole healing process, and can continue to beused as a normal moisturizer onceyour tattoo has finished healing.

Tattoo Salve, Natural Aftercare Cream

Tattoo Salve is another entirely natural and vegan-friendly product that is quickly becoming a firm fan-favorite.

Infused with herbs and other totally natural ingredients, the small family-run business that makes Tattoo Salveadvisesthatby using this skin friendly,synthetic free cream regularly throughout healing, the chances are that your tattoo willcome out the other sidelooking brightand vibrant.

Here is a selection of my other favorite tattoo lotions and ointmentsthat are currently on the market.

As you reach the end of this stage, more and more of your skin is going to start hanging from your tattooed area. It will be very tempting to peel these pieces of skin off but DO NOT mess with them, they will fall off when theyre ready, and pulling the skin off prematurely can cause ink to be pulled from the deeper layers.

Very colorful peeling

The half-peeled-off pieces of skin all over your tattoo, along with the dryness means that your tattoo is going to look very unsightly and ugly for a few days, although the heavypeeling only usually lasts for 2-4 days.

When washing your tattoo you may see some coloured pieces of skin flaking away, but this is completely normal during the washing process as long as youre not being too rough. This is actually how I lost most of my peeling skin and all of my tattoos have healed perfectly well.

Amongst the factors already mentioned, you may also experience some tightness in the skin around your tattoo this is due to the skin becomingdrier than normal as it heals and is normal. Applying lotion if the skin becomes very tight can lessenthe problemsomewhat.

Nearly there! You’ve made it to the third and final stage of the healing process. By this point, pretty-much all of your scabs and areas of flaky skin will have dropped off (although a few of the heavier scabs may still be hanging around – excuse the pun).

The tattooed area will most-likely be slightly dry still and a little sore/sensitive to the touch. Continue to moisturize whenever your skin starts to look/feel dry.

Throughout this stage your tattoo will continue to look slightlycloudy, dull and scaly it can even look a bit glossy/shiny in the light at the same time.

There is typically still a very fine dead layer of skin over the tattoo at this stage, but this will naturally flake away over the next month or two until your skin has completely regenerated back to normal the clarity and beauty will return when your brand new skin reaches the surface.

This is the perfect time to check your tattoo over for any problems such as patchy spots, fading, or any tattoo blowout that may have occurred during the tattooing procedure. You can then contact your artist to arrange a touchup.

Although your skin should look pretty much back to normal after the 2-3 weeks of healing stages, the deeper layers of skin will still be busy repairing themselves.

Your most upper/outer layer of skin will always heal the fastest because its the most important part to seal up and regenerate in order to block infection-causing bacteria from entering the wound.

The lower layers ofskin will most-likelytake 3-4 months to completely heal, though your tattoo will startto look much clearer and sharper long before those 3-4 months are up.

In conclusion, its hard to say when a tattoo is fully healed because everybody heals differently. It also depends on lots of various factors such as how large the tattoo is and how good the artist was (if he was rough and pushed the needle harder than needed, the tattoo will probably take longer than normal to heal).

If 4-6 months have passed since your last piece of work on the tattoo (either the initial work or an additional cover-up) then its relativelysafe to say that your tattoo area is healed, or at least very close to it.

A beautiful, perfectly healed tattoo

All in all, it may seem like a lot is going on with your tattoo afteryour initial inking session, but remember that it is only for 2-3 weeks. Here is a quick reminder of the things to look out for. Trust me, they really aren’t as bad as they seem.

Take care of your tattoo as well as humanly possibleduring this very important time and by the end of it you should be set up to have a fabulous piece of ink etched into your body for the rest of your life congratulations!

The 18.5million forward endured several sessions under the needle to finish off the amazing series of images which knitted together complete a powerful recognition of the civil rights struggle across the world.

The famous image of Muhammad Ali taunting the stricken Sonny Liston sits just below a picture of Nelson Mandela.

Dr Martin Luther King Jnr and Malcom X are other activists depicted, along with Rosa Parks the seamstress who fought against segregation on a bus in Alabama by refusing to give up her seat to a white man.

Joining that collection of images is the legendary shot of sprinters Tommie Smith and John Carlos giving their famous one-fist black power salute as they stood on the podium at the 1968 Olympics in Mexico.

Reggae star Bob Marley is included, along with images of the Black Panther political movement.

Gray revealed his tribute by posting a picture on his Twitter account with the simple message: Master Piece!!

Triad tattoo? Rody son invokes privacy – Philippine Star09.07.17

Paolo denies links to drug smuggling

MANILA, Philippines It would have set the record straight regarding his alleged drug links, but baring a tattoo on his back to a Senate panel as suggested by Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV would be a violation of his privacy, Davao City Vice Mayor Paolo Duterte said yesterday.

At the resumption of the Senate Blue Ribbon committee hearing on smuggling at the Bureau of Customs (BOC), Trillanes dared Duterte to prove to the panel that he does not have a Chinese triad tattoo.

While admitting he has a tattoo on his back, a visibly exasperated Duterte did not take Trillanes challenge that he show it to the panel not even in an executive session.

I invoke my right to privacy, the vice mayor said, stressing he would not answer allegations based on hearsay.

Despite Dutertes general unresponsiveness during the hearing, Trillanes expressed belief he was able to prove the vice mayors links to the notorious Chinese triad as well as his familys involvement in drugs and smuggling activities in the country. Triad members are known for their color coded tattoo of a dragon on their back.

Trillanes admitted he personally is not aware if Duterte really has a triad tattoo on his back and that he derived such unverified information from a foreign source.

Headlines ( Article MRec ), pagematch: 1, sectionmatch: 1

It (intelligence report) says that Vice Mayor Paolo Duterte is a member of the triad and the proof of his membership is the tattoo on his back, Trillanes said.

That (tattoo) will explain everything and theres competition among drug syndicates, he said.

That is the membership (requirement). If you are a triad member, you have a tattoo on your back. And if you are a member of the triad, you are involved in all criminal activities, the senator said.

Reacting to these allegations, Duterte was seen sighing and shaking his head.

According to Trillanes, he was able to show that illegal drugs, including cocaine, were able to enter Davao City over the years despite claims by President Duterte that he knew all the goings-on in the city when he was still mayor and that he would never tolerate the use of and trading in drugs.

This was belied by Trillanes. In December 2009, the senator noted that 16 kilograms of cocaine were seized at the Davao City wharf.

Five years later, on March 24, Trillanes said that P126 million worth of high-grade cocaine bars were discovered inside a container van at a shipyard in Davao.

A few days after the discovery, Trillanes said more bundles of cocaine were recovered from the same shipyard.

The following month, he said another P4.2 million worth of cocaine was seized from alleged drug pushers in Davao City.

Duterte has been bragging that he is the king of Davao and that nothing happens in Davao without him knowing about it. So if you are a drug lord, would you even use Davao City as your transshipment point? Trillanes said.

Trillanes said the truth is Duterte did nothing to address the entry of illegal drugs into Davao City.

Ive shown the links and its very clear. There is a track record. Paolo Duterte was involved in smuggling before. So now with his links to the triad, thats the final piece of the puzzle. Thats why the Philippines is being used as a transshipment port of illegal drugs because Paolo Duterte is a member of the triad, he said.

Trillanes also said that he was able to show at yesterdays hearing that the younger Duterte is connected to all of the players in the BOC who facilitated the release of more than P6 billion worth of shabu shipment from China.

Sen. Richard Gordon, chairman of the committee, asked Trillanes to make sure his allegations have basis.

The chair would like to request respectfully that we should not make allegations here without any basis because triad is a very serious allegation and we should not abuse any of the witnesses here, Gordon said.

Sen. Panfilo Lacson, for his part, asked Trillanes to disclose details of his information as well as his source, to which the latter said he would do so in a closed-door session with senators.

When later asked by reporters if he had any picture of the tattoo, Trillanes said it could be looked up in Google.

The young Duterte and presidential son-in-law Manases Carpio attended the hearing after Trillanes had them summoned over his allegations that they were leaders of the so-called Davao group that facilitates smuggling at the BOC.

Carpio is the husband of Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio.

Broker Mark Taguba earlier testified before the panel that he had his shipments facilitated through the BOC with the help of some individuals who identified themselves as representing the Davao group.

The broker last week, however, denied tagging Duterte and Carpio in smuggling activities.

The National Bureau of Investigation earlier tagged Taguba and several other individuals in drug trafficking. Also charged were Chinese businessmen Richard Chen, Kenneth Dong, Manny Li and other local brokers.

The drugs were recovered from two warehouses in Valenzuela City by members of the Customs Intelligence and Investigation Service last May 26 following a tip from authorities in Xiamen, China where the shabu shipment had originated.

During the hearing, Trillanes presented photos taken from social media of Dong and the younger Duterte together to point out their links.

The senator also showed the panel photos of the vice mayor with businessman Charlie Tan. He also presented a picture of Tan with the President at Malacaang.

Tan, the senator pointed out, was among those mentioned by Lacson as being engaged in smuggling. Trillanes also cited reports on Tans involvement in drug trafficking.

To further press his point, Trillanes presented bank records in 2015 showing that Duterte and Carpio had hundreds of millions of pesos in their accounts.

Rainier Madrid, Dutertes legal counsel, said his client was close to giving in to Trillanes demand to show his tattoo but he advised him against it.

I thought it would be explosive show of witnesses Where are they? He only presented the body he wanted to see. Is he gay? Madrid told reporters.

Trillanes only wanted to make a spectacle, Madrid said, adding he did not want his client to be humiliated.

Madrid said Duterte has no regrets and has no plans at the moment to get back legally at Trillanes.

Petersburg man’s facial tattoo leads to robbery arrest – Richmond.com09.07.17

With a distinctive tattoo between his eyebrows, the gunman who held up a convenience store in Hopewell last December should have worn more than a hat and a hoodie.

Vince Edward Nicholas, 24, of Petersburg, was indicted by a federal grand jury Wednesday on robbery and firearms charges and is set to be arraigned next week before U.S. Magistrate Judge David J. Novak.

According to authorities, a man wearing a hat and a hoodie entered the 7-Eleven store in the 3300 block of Oak Lawn Boulevard in Hopewell on Dec. 11, selected a drink from the cooler, and then picked up a Slim Jim and stood off to the side until all the other customers left the store.

He then approached the sales counter, placed the drink and Slim Jim down, pointed a gun at a clerk and demanded she open her cash register drawer. ‘”I’m not playing,'” he said, according to an affidavit filed by Todd Fleming, a special agent with the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

“Fearing for her life, (the clerk) opened the cash register drawer . . . the suspect jumped over the counter and took money from the first cash register drawer,” continued Fleming. The robber then demanded a second clerk open her register. She was shaken and unable to do so, and the robber said, ‘”I’m not playing games.'”

The first clerk opened the other clerk’s drawer, the robber took the money, walked back around the counter, picked up his drink and Slim Jim and left the store.

The two clerks, reported Fleming, “stated that the suspect had a very distinctive tattoo between his eyes. The tattoo was in the shape of a half sun, a half circle, or something similar, and the half circle/half sun was surrounded by boxes.”

“Both victims were terrified at the time and are still haunted by memories of the robbery to this day,” wrote Fleming in his April affidavit.

On Dec. 13, Hopewell police received a tip indicating that the robber lived at an address in Petersburg. Nicholas was arrested at the address on Dec. 14. He has a tattoo matching the tattoo of the robber and allegedly admitted committing the robbery when he was interviewed by Hopewell and Petersburg police, said Fleming.

This STAR WARS Corgi X-Wing Pilot Tattoo is Our Only Hope – Nerdist09.07.17

Its no small thing to improve upon Star Wars, but Scott has done so with this tattoo. The design combines the galactic setting with Scotts best pup pal. The corgi X-wing pilot that is the star of this ink is Carlton, who is, by the way, named after Carlton Banks in The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Scott told Nerdist he saw a tattoo of a dog floating in space and wanted to tweak the idea to make it unique to his tastes.

My corgi, Carlton, is my pal, my best bud, my confidante. Hes my homie, and I wanted to get a tattoo to give him his flowers while hes still here, so to speak, Scott said. Hes always been a Star Wars fan too, and he said the fictional universe gives him a place to escape to and cope with anxiety.

Scotts corgi-centric permanent art was inked by tattooist Julie Bolene of Thunderbird Tattoo. Its more than a creative work of art, its therapeutic. Whenever I look at this tattoo, Ill be reminded of what helps keep me going. Carltons been one of the few reasons I enjoy getting out of bed in the morning. In a weird way, Carlton is my only hope,’ Scott said.

Aww. Move over, Obi-Wan Kenobi.

If you have nerdy ink on your skin or youre a tattoo artist that applies pop culture, STEM, music, or other nerd-inspired ink (tl;dr: I want to see all of the tattoos) on a regular basis, then please hit me up because Id like to highlight you in a future Inked Wednesday gallery. Im especially interested if you have a sleeve or other large tattoo. You can get in touch with me via email at [emailprotected] Send me photos of the tattoos youd like me to feature (the higher resolution, the better) and dont forget to let me know the name of your tattoo artist if you have it, as well the name of the shop he or she works out of. If you are the tattoo artist, give me links to your portfolios and/or Instagram accounts so I can share them with our readers.
