  • Scarlett Johansson has several tattoos, including a sunset on her forearm and a horseshoe on her ribcage. When Johansson walked the 2018 Emmy's red carpet, she revealed another tattoo: large, colorless roses and thorns stretching across her upper back.

    People first spotted the ink when she was filming Infinity War in 2017, but many assumed it was fake.

  • Although we've known for years about Ben Affleck's smaller tattoos (a ring of barbed wire around his bicep, a fish with a skull and crossbones on his arm, initials on his shoulder blade, a dolphin on his right hip), he recently debuted a giant tattoo of a phoenix rising, covering most of his upper back.

    Rumor has it he got the tat to symbolize his split from his wife of ten years, Jennifer Garner.
