Sylvester Stallone wanted to change Jennifer Flavin to Wonder Woman

Sylvester Stallone’s tattoo artist reveals the actor wanted to change his tattoo of estranged wife Jennifer Flavin to Wonder Woman

Just weeks after Sylvester Stallone and his wife of 25 years, Jennifer Flavin, ended their marriage, new details have surfaced about his altered tattoo of Flavin.

DailyMail.com reported in late August — just days before their split was announced — that Stallone, 76, changed his tattoo of Flavin to a depiction of his late dog and Rocky castmate Butkus, which, according to Stallone’s reps, was a result of a botched touch-up that wasn’t to his liking, leading to the Butkus ink.

Now People is reporting that Stallone was thinking about changing the tattoo of Flavin to Wonder Woman… last year.

The new details come from tattoo artist Mike DeVries, who gave Stallone the original Flavin tattoo back in 2007.

‘I already knew that he wanted to do something, because last year he emailed me, called me, and we discussed talking about making Jennifer Flavin into [Wonder Woman],’ DeVries revealed. 

The artist mentioned that Wonder Woman wears a yellow tiara as part of her costume, and that wouldn’t work with the darker part of her hair in the tattoo.

‘All of her hair would just shine through,’ DeVries added, though he added he didn’t do the cover-up work on that tattoo.

The Butkus tattoo was created by Zach Perez, with the artist posting photos of the work in mid-August, just days before their split was announced.

Stallone’s spokesperson, Michelle Bega, insisted that the tattoo cover-up was no sign of trouble in the relationship, though.

‘Mr. Stallone intended to refresh the tattoo image of his wife Jennifer however the results were unsatisfactory and, unfortunately, unfixable,’ she said.

‘As a result, he had to cover the original image with a tattoo of his dog from Rocky, Butkus,’ Bega clarified.

‘Mr. Stallone loves his family. The Stallones are presently filming a reality show together which will debut on Paramount+,’ Bega added.
