General Hospital Spoilers: Steve Burton Shows Off His Tattoo, Receives Mixed Reviews From Fans

General Hospital, Y & R, Days Of Our Lives: Beyond Salem, Stone Cold and the Jackal, and Port Chuck, are just a few of the reasons why Steve Burton is such a beloved actor.

General Hospital fans were devastated when GH news broke out, confirming Steve’s exit from GH as the legendary mob enforcer, Jason Morgan. General Hospital spoilers had revealed that he, along with co-star Ingo Rademacher, who played Jasper “Jax” Jacks, were let go over a vaccine mandate implemented by ABC Network. Fast forward several months and General Hospital news and spoilers reveal Steve Burton has moved on from the 59 year old daytime drama and has joined the cast of Days spin-off, Days Of Our Lives: Beyond Salem.

General Hospital spoilers reveal little look into his personal life; On April 12th, Steve recently shared a photo of himself, showing off his arm tattoo. The photo received comment from co-star and friend, Chad Duell (Michael Corinthos). Duell wrote, “Digging the tats Steven 👌🏻.” It looks like Steve has had this tattoo for a few months, but has recently made his ink the focal point of some of his IG posts.

More recently Steve shared a photo with the tattoo artist who worked on Steve; “legend in the tattoo biz,” Joel Bones. In the photo shared to Burton’s Instagram, Steve shows off his new arm tattoo alongside artist, Joel Bones.

GH news and spoilers report some fans have kinda freaked out in the comments, claiming Steves tattoo will prevent him from acting (particularly returning to GH).

General Hospital Blog would like to extend our encouragement to Steve. We absolutely LOVE your new ink and don’t believe for a second that a tattoo would hinder you from landing roles. Many of the actors have tattoo- one who comes to mind is Jason Thompson (Patrick Drake). Others include, Tyler Chistopher (ex-Nikolas Cassadine, GH), Robert LaSardo, who not only played Manny Ruiz on GH, but has a long list of acting credits which include CSI: Miami, LaSardo also collaborated with Clint Eastwood and Bradley Cooper in the movie, The Mule, Days star Landon Archey (Eli Grant), Lauren Koslow (Kate Roberts, Days), Kamar de Los Reyes (Antonio, OLTL), along with many more.

Although most comments were positive and encouraging, a few nasysayers had to share their not-so-positive opinions. We see no reason why Steve Burtons new ink would ever prevent him from working in the acting industry. He’s already landed a new role on the 5 episode series, Beyond Salem. Way to go, Steve! We LOVE your new tattoo! Fans can check it out below!
