Sylvester Stallone covers up tattoo of his wife with giant inking of dog

Sylvester Stallone has shown off a giant tattoo of a dog which has replaced one of his wife – sparking fears his marriage is in trouble.

The Hollywood legend has covered the image of Jennifer Flavin, his partner of 25 years, with an image of Butkus – his pooch from the Rocky films.

Sly, 76, claims the tattoo ended up botched and “unfixable” after he tried to refresh it.

But Jennifer, 54, has unfollowed him on Instagram.

She posted a photo with their three daughters, saying: “These girls are my priority. Nothing else matters. The four of us forever.”

She added the hashtags “truth,” “family” and “forever” to the snap, which garnered plenty of positive comments — including one from daughter Sistine, who wrote, “Strongest woman I know.”

The skincare founder and her actor husband, who were married in 1997, share daughters Sophia, 25, Sistine, 24 and Scarlet, 20.

Stallone, who is filming the upcoming Paramount+ series Tulsa King in Oklahoma City, entrusted local tattoo artist Zach Perez to do some work on his arm, with the pro sharing now-deleted Instagram photos of himself inking Butkus, the famous Bullmastiff from the Rocky movies, over Flavin’s face.

The original art — which was still visible in an Instagram photo the Expendables star posted earlier this month — featured the model’s head surrounded by roses, and the new image shows Rocky’s pooch in its place.

“Greatest day in my tattoo career!!” Perez wrote on August 16.

“Thank you for trusting me with your tattoo today @officialslystallone.”

Fans soon began asking the artist why Stallone’s wife was getting covered up, before the photos disappeared.

One fan commented on Stallone’s Instagram, writing, “what about the new ink of Butkus on your shoulder? That looks awesome. Did your wife mind? Mine would’ve killed me. Lol.”

The skincare founder and her “Rambo” star husband, who were married in 1997, share daughters Sophia, 25, Sistine, 24 and Scarlet, 20.

While the tattoo switch-up has been making headlines, the actor’s publicist Michelle Bega told the Daily Mail, it was all a misunderstanding.

“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.”

The rep added that “Mr. Stallone loves his family” and they “are presently filming a reality show together which will debut on Paramount+.”
