Marc Anthony previously had a JLo tattoo on his ring finger

While he is now seen to be sporting a bold block tattoo on his ring finger as per People, he previously had his ex-wife Jennifer Lopez’s initials in its place. 

Past photos of the ink show it to have once read JLM. As Jennifer’s full name is Jennifer Lynn the M could have represented Anthony’s first name. However, She Knows believes it to have actually said JLA to represent her taking on his last name – Jennifer Lopez Anthony. 

Anthony got the tattoo during his marriage to Lopez but is seen to have later got it covered up soon after they separated in 2011.
