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

Steve Burton shirtless tattoo

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. But he is best known in his iconic role as Jason Morgan in ABC’s GH.

Sadly, General Hospital fans were devastated when GH news confirmed Steve’s GH exit. It seems that Steve and Kelly Thiedbaud were headed down a news storyline path, when once again, Jason Morgan “dies.” Previously, General Hospital spoilers revealed that he, along with co-star Ingo Rademacher who played Jasper “Jax” Jacks, were let go over a vaccine mandate. Reportedly, the mandate was implemented by Disney/ABC Network. Fast forward several months and General Hospital news and spoilers reveal that Steve Burton has moved on from the 59 year old daytime drama and has joined the cast of Days Of Our Lives: Beyond Salem.

Steve Burton Shirtless With New Tattoo

General Hospital spoilers reveal a little look into his personal life. On April 12th, Steve shared a selfie which showed 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.

According to GH news reports, Steve recently shared a photo with his tattoo artist. The photo displays his new arm tattoo, and Burton captioned the pic, “legend in the tattoo biz, Joel Bones.”

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 tattoos. In fact, one actor that 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.

GH Fans On Steve Burton’s Tattoo: Let’s Stay Positive

GH news reports reveal that some fans have freaked out in the comments. Some claim that Steve’s tattoo will prevent him from acting (particularly returning to GH). Although most comments were positive and encouraging, a few nasysayers had to share their not-so-positive opinions. We see no reason why Steve’s new ink would ever prevent him from working in the acting industry. In fact, he 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!
