'It's Awful!'

Jennifer Lopez Mocks Ben Affleck’s Back Tattoo

The old girlfriend does not approve!

Jennifer Lopez may feel like she dodged a bullet by not reuniting with Ben Affleck — because she sure doesn’t approve of her old boyfriend’s new back tattoo!

“It’s awful,” the diva declared to host Andy Cohen on the Bravo network’s “Watch What Happens Live.”

The National ENQUIRER recently caught Ben showing off his garish new ink while shooting his upcoming movie “Live By Night” — which is set in the 1920s.

So while Ben’s claiming that the tattoo isn’t real, it’s sure not likely that the ink belongs to his film character!

As it turned out, Jennifer seems to have had a problem with Ben’s taste in ink for a while.

“His tattoos always have too many colors,” she told Andy.

“They shouldn’t be so colorful, you know what I mean?”

But at least Ben can take some comfort in knowing his big tattoo is really a Phoenix — the mythical bird that rises from its ashes, much like the troubled actor managed to salvage a movie career that was almost dead just a decade ago!

That was back when Ben, 43, was dating 46-year-old Jennifer — so he might not be missing her opinions too much!
