Tyson Tattoo Artist Sues Hangover

(Yahoo! News) Warners is being sued by a Missouri tattoo artist who claims he owns a copyright on the unique tattoo worn by former boxer Mike Tyson and Helms in "Hangover II." The tattoo's owner, S. Victor Whitmill, attempted to stop the film’s release but was denied a preliminary injunction. “If the parties are unable to resolve their dispute, Warner Bros. does not intend to make any use of the allegedly infringing tattoo after the film ends its run in theaters because Warner Bros. will digitally alter the film to substitute a different tattoo on Ed Helms’s face."
