Ben Affleck has done a great job remaining silent on any spoilery details from [Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice](tag:711870), but, as it turns out, he's good at keeping secrets in even more areas of his life.

I'm talking, of course, about Ben's penchant for tattoos, which we've seriously underestimated in 2015. We knew he had some ink, but he's always kept it somewhat hidden. Now, we have the full scope of his back tattoo, and it's way larger than we anticipated.

Earlier this year, Ben gave us a peek at what most affectionately referred to as a "tramp stamp"

Some fans were a little perplexed at the placement, but most of us just wanted to see this body art in full. This was way back in July, so now five months later, we finally have the full picture.

Here's Ben's phoenix tattoo in full display


That's right, this isn't the kind of tiny little tattoo that can be easily concealed. That is an awesomely enormous bird of prey rising from the ashes and nestling safely on Batman's backside.

According to Us Weekly, this tattoo is authentic and not just an element of his character in Live By Night (the movie he's currently filming). The magazine says they spoke to a source who claims Ben had a tattoo artist come to his home recently and complete the ink.

I'm always leery of anonymous sources, but that certainly looks like the real deal to me! What do you guys think?
