Jennifer Lopez Thinks Ben Affleck's Back Tattoo Is "Awful"

Consider this a PSA to confused men the world over.

Please come with us on a journey to yesteryear, if you will. Remember Ben Affleck lounging on a yacht, wearing a white tank top, and casually untying Jennifer Lopez's string bikini. Guys, it was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the music video for "Jenny from the Block." 

Said video was an opportunity for Ben to show off his collection of arm tattoos, which apparently Jen totally hated—much like she hates the massive phoenix back tattoo he had inked in the wake of his separation from Jennifer Garner.

"It's awful," J.Lo told Andy Cohen during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live. "And I would tell him that. I would tell him, 'What are you doing?' It has too many colors. His tattoos always have too many colors. They shouldn't be so colorful, you know what I mean? They should be, like, cooler."

Please try to be cooler from now on, Ben Affleck. Though, to be fair, nothing will ever be as cool as this:
