Marc Anthony covers up his J.Lo tattoo and gets a tattoo for his 24 year-old girlfriend

For all you can say about how Jennifer Lopez jumps from one serious relationship to the next, her estranged husband isn’t taking his time in his currently relationship. Right after we saw a flurry of photos of J.Lo out with her new boyfriend, 24 year-old backup dancer Casper Smart, Marc was posting messages on Twitter and Facebook to make sure we knew about his new 24 year-old girlfriend, a Brazilian model named Shannon De Lima. Well now there’s news that Marc got someink for De Lima to seal the deal. He calls her his Statue of Liberty, so he had a Statue of Liberty inked inside his right wrist, which is where he previously had a tattoo for J.Lo. So smart.

Some say it in love letters, others in poetry.

Marc Anthony, however, opts to say it in ink of a different kind – etched permanently onto his skin.

The singer, 43, currently sports a new tattoo he got in honor of his new flame, Venezuelan model Shannon De Lima, on New Year’s Eve in Miami, according to TMZ.

The tattoo, of the Statue of Liberty inked onto the inside of his right wrist, is a direct reference to the 24-year-old beauty, whom he calls his “Statue of Liberty” – a nickname he gave her for “freeing” him of his past relationships, sources told the site.

Anthony very publicly split with wife Jennifer Lopez this past summer after seven years of marriage. The couple have two children together, twins Max and Emme.

The singer’s children from previous relationships, however, thus far approve of dad’s new relationship.

“To all my followers and everybody on twitter follow 2012 best couple and for many more years to come @MarcAnthony and @Shadelima !!!!” his son Chase Muniz wrote earlier this month.

Anthony and his 17-year-old daughter Ariana even decided to get unspecified matching tattoos on New Year’s Eve, replacing the “Jennifer” tattoo that used to cover his right wrist.

Lopez and Anthony will continue to work together on talent competition “Q’Viva! The Chosen” despite their split, and the couple opened up about their new relationship dynamic in a recent screening of the premiere episode, with Lopez calling it “very Sonny and Cher after divorce.”

Added Anthony: “Marriage is one chapter, kids are another.”

[From The NY Daily News]

I can’t really tell from the way this story is worded on TMZ or The Daily News if Marc covered up his J.Lo tattoo with the Statue of Liberty tattoo. It sounds like he got another tattoo to cover up the J.Lo one and then added this Statue of Liberty tat in that same area. When is it ever a good idea to get a tattoo for a lover? I understand getting tattoos for your kids, parents or blood relations, but even for a spouse it seems misguided. Marc has been with this model a few weeks tops unless he was cheating with her and she was his jumpoff. Even if that’s the case, it’s supremely dumb to get a tattoo for her. At least he’s getting a symbol instead of her name, but he’s going to have to look at that thing every day for the rest of his life barring another tattoo covering it up or laser surgery. I could see maybe getting a tattoo for a girlfriend or boyfriend in a discreet spot that you don’t have to see all the time, but when it’s on your wrist it’s going to remind you of them constantly even after the breakup.

Marc and J.Lo really were perfect for each other. They’re both so stupid when they’re in love. Or maybe Marc still loves J.Lo and is trying to make her jealous. Given their dynamic recently that could be the case.

    Does anyone else think that JLo and Marc may now get back together? They are both doing to so much to make the other jealous, in such a public manner. No thought whatsoever for the well-being of their kids.

    Hope JLo is truly over this crap, if we are to believe that he beat her, or at least shoved her around. Childish idiots is what they are. They need to take a break from the camera and concentrate on raising their kids… And stop dating children as well.

    • Nev says:

      I called that from the start…they will reconcile once all this reaction is exhausted.

      • Capella says:

        Hope not @Nev. I was actually relieved when I heard of their separation.

        I don’t understand the hold this obvious prick has on his women. But his ex, Dianara, was truly devastated when he left her for Jennifer, and had publicly stated that she would still take him back. Is it only me? Looking at certain men, my mind screams “keep away, best you keep away”. And Marc is one of them. Never understood this guy’s appeal. All he screams is sleaze with a good shot of Napoleon-like control freakishness.

    • Kimlee says:

      It looks like they are both using thier young jump off to make each other jealous, one it’s pathetic and 2 they have kids two together and Mark like 5 in total that thier not thinking .

      I wouldn’t be surprised if J Lo has her boy toy move In with her to one up Mark on getting a tatoo for his girl toy.

  3. TheOriginalKitten says:

    Wow. He always struck me as a slower learner but this takes it to a new level.

    • gg says:

      Especially since he’s already got a blacked-out blob on his wedding ring finger from some other past mistake.

      Stupid, stupid, stupid man.

      Let’s hope the next piece doesn’t have to have some more designer children to pawn with. Shameful, these people.

  4. cmc says:


    Sorry, there’s no other way to put it.

  5. hstl1 says:

    I have watched a lot of LA Ink. Never get tattoos with your SO’s name or likeness on your body. For that matter, of your dead or dying baby either.

    Enough with the stupid tattoos!

  6. Franny says:

    Hey, I’m 24! What filthy rich star wants to date me?!

    • Anne says:

      Look at those pictures. Are you willing to tap that?

      • Asli says:

        LOL! I didn’t think anyone would but lookie who he’s got. Maybe they have a different standard of beauty for men in Brazil/Venezuela. Beats me.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      I’m still trying to figure out what the appeal of this guy is. Maybe he has a Fassdong?

      • Just Lucy, for now. says:

        No. No one can have the fassdong other then Fassbender. And ew to you for making me thing of Marc’s downstairs region. lol So wrong!

    “…whom he calls his “Statue of Liberty” – a nickname he gave her for “freeing” him of his past relationships.”

    Am I the only one who thinks it’s pathetic that a forty-something man needs someone to hold his hand to get over his failed relationships?

    Or that a guy with “control issues” cited as the number one factor in his marriage breakdown should go for an easily-malleable-if-she-wants-to-be-famous, no-name 24-year old?

    Seriously Mark, how about some time on your own or with an equal to make J-Lo look like the sad, desperate one who has to PAY A SALARY not to be alone?

    Aye Carumba!

  8. T.C. says:

    what is there to be jealous of? Immaturity thy name is Marc Anthony.

    • whatevs says:

      ikr? if you got a tattoo of her clearly she is the love of your life and you have two kids together. this is beyond silly. getting a tat for someone you just met. to make your ex-wife jelly. i just remembered even that guitar player from jane’s addiction is still using his guitar which has carmen electra written on it.

  9. Agnes says:

    I’m certain that both of their relationships will work out wonderfully. Haha.

  10. whatevs says:

    just doing this to spite her. what is he, 12?

  11. Suzy (from Ontario, Canada) says:

    Tapioca said: Am I the only one who thinks it’s pathetic that a forty-something man needs someone to hold his hand to get over his failed relationships?

    In a word: No. I’m not surprised at all, especially about him finding someone so young and not a star, ie: easier to mold to what he wants.

    I think it’s pathetic he rushed to get some tattoo to honour her or whatever. I mean, is he 16? At least he was smart enough not to get her name inked on his arm.

    Frankly I’m disgusted by both his behaviour and JLo’s in the wake of their separation/divorce. Neither of them seem to care much about spending time with their kids and making them feel safe and secure in light of their parents splitting. Instead they both seem desperate to grab onto some young lover to prove to themselves and the world that they are still desirable. Pathetic and immature imo.

  14. SHump76 says:

    As someone who has a tatt with her husband’s name in it, even I think this is stupid to the Nth power. These two are ridiculous. It’s like dueling mid-life crisis all up in here. JUST STOP. Seriously, how embarrassed would you be if the entire world knew you were carrying on like this?

    • gg says:

      They probably don’t read the online tabs, AND SOME PEOPLE REALLY SHOULD! Sorry about the all caps but these people make me smack my forehead.

      I wonder if their kids will be any smarter?

  15. says:

    So we learn that is man is not only butt-f*ck ugly, but also dumb as sh!t.

  16. DomCoug says:

    OMG I want to punch him in the face.. ahhh that’s better.. now where’s my coffee dammit!!! >:|ha ha ha ha…

  17. Tweakspotter says:

    For such a troll looking dude he sure pulls in beautiful women. JLo being the (eh hem) largest, and not as model-esqe as the rest of them. That’s as nice as I can put it.

    • gg says:

      Lots of cash will buy you a good-looking woman (or kid). 🙄 And make you think you are also good-looking, even when you are so far from good-looking you look like you are good friends with Tha Ugly Stick.

    • MsNoName says:

      Or maybe most men don’t want to bang skeletor…bones don’t feel good while you’re thrusting into them ya’ know…

      Anyway, they’re behavior is unlike average people, which is why most of these comments are stupid. People date younger and older all the time, much younger is the case if you have money. You people need to socialize more, if you don’t see that. Marc’s behavior is MAN behavior. Jen’s is of one who’s been-there-done-that and can nab a younger guy because, hell, look at her!

  18. Blue says:

    Omg, how old are these people? They are both 40 somethings dating 24 year olds and acting like 16 year old kids. They are still totally in love with each other and trying to make each other jealous. Poor kids.

  19. Anguishedcorn says:

    He’s such a greasy lizard. It gives me the creeps just looking at pics of him.

  20. Asli says:

    So I don’t have to reply to every comment above ( which I’ve basically already done :P) I would like to say that I agree with all of the above! 😀

  21. meme says:

    It’s sick to watch this play out in this intentional public way. The children don’t deserve this.

  22. TheOriginalVictoria says:

    so now people can stop talking shit about J. Ho because he’s no better.

  23. lilred says:

    I didn’t know you could tattoo bone

    • Kimlee says:

      No one ever said he was, thses photos of him and his girl toy have been out for some time and people have said the same thing about him as they say about JLO, now they both look pathetic and immature.

    • Kimlee says:

      Sorry I hit repy for the wrong person, this was ment for the post above yours.

      • TheOriginalVictoria says:

        Actually on this site a lot of people were being self-righteous and claiming that J. Lo was all kinds of this and that because she was twerking with a teeny-bopper and that Mark had the right to be all indignant since she brought him around the kids,

        And I said and am saying now, that he was just as bad as she was. This is nothing new. He did with his ex wife when he brought J. Lo around I’m not a fan of either anymore but I hated that J. Lo was getting all that flak.

  24. Working says:

    Ay carumba…i feel sorry for their kids, having 2 children for parents as well! They’re damn immature!

  25. Jenna says:

    Hey, at least he only got it where HE will have to stare at it later. When I used to work as a nanny at a parlor (owner had kids, built a great playroom for them in the back – most family friendly place I’ve ever worker, really. And I’m including libraries in that!) a great deal of time was spent with the owner trying to talk some addle-pated nitwit out of getting the boyfriend of the months name tattooed across her entire lower back.

    Yup. JUST what your next partner wants to see every single time you wear low rise jeans, pull on your knickers, or hey! Actual honeymoon fun! Another dude’s name sprawled across your butt.

    I had an easier time when the job was taking care of the kids. Getting called out to talk down 19 year old earnest little girls? Was enough to nearly make a gal cry!

    • Karen says:

      Ugh!!! I can’t imagine how another man would feel when he sees someone else’s name every time he taps his girl from the back. NO! Just. No.

  26. Girl says:

    Given the tension between the US and Venezuela, I think this is particularly hysterical.

    Very sad as someone pointed out above that these 40 year olds are dating 24 year olds and acting like 16 year olds. Only they have money and kids. I remember reading a debate in child development class about what age children tend to become self aware. Apparently some of us never do.

  27. Stubbylove says:

    These two are acting like obnoxious, immature children – behavior of a 5 year old – grow the hell up. Reason #5032 on how money can’t buy class.

  28. Kim says:

    He is soooooo mature (heavy sarcasm). Him & J Lo are acting younger than their kids! Pathetic!

  29. skuddles says:

    It never ceases to amaze me how stupid begets stupid (amongst certain celebrities).

  30. the original bellaluna says:

    It’s going to be an “immaturity-off” as to who can get the youngest piece!

    Expect Jell-O to dump her piece and pick up a 22-year-old; then Mark will try to one-up her and get a 21-year-old. Soon, it’ll be Jell-O and Justin Bieber, with poor Selena going to Mark.

    Then they’ll all get back together with their former respective partners. Watch.

  31. serena says:

    So childish..

  32. HappyJoyJoy says:

    He looks like an underdeveloped newborn. Eeeeeeeeeeek!

  33. dahlia1947 says:

    Statue of Liberty is a stupid nickname. Next.

  34. Lindsey G. says:

    I will never understand this impulse some people have to get their partners’ names tatted on their body. I mean, maybe after being married and in love for 30 or so years, I’ll consider it, but til then “Wino Forever.”

    …ask Johnny Depp. He knows.

  35. Josie says:

    Wait one part says that she is Brazilian and the other Venezuelan. I think she is Venezuelan. Also, his sons aren’t old enough to use Twitter, right? And their names are Cristian and Ryan.

  36. madeline7 says:

    I hope Jenn & Marc will reconcile soon. Clearly they love one another. They need to slow down, so they can give more time to their children and each other. Seven years of marriage is worth the effort. Their children are worth it.

  37. lucy2 says:

    He should get a more handsome face tattooed over that one, because…yuck.

    Seriously, when you change partners every time you sneeze, skip the tattoos. He and JLo are both immature and moronic. Poor kids.
