WB, Artist Hanging It Up Over Tattoo Lawsuit

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Warner Brothers Studios and tattoo artist S. Victor Whitmill have settled the lawsuit over the tattoo featured on actor Ed Helms' face in the film The Hangover II, which is currently cleaning up in movie houses. Mr. Whitmill had alleged that the tattoo, which he created for boxer Mike Tyson and copyrighted, infringed on his rights. Details of the settlement are not available, but THR notes that while the judge hearing the case denied Mr. Whitmill's request for a preliminary injunction, she also did not seem sympathetic to the studio's case.
