“Hangover” tattoo might be altered on Blu-ray, DVD


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: The lawsuit involving Mike Tyson’s signature tattoo on Ed Helms’ face in Todd Phillips’ won’t go away.

The studio was sued by a Missouri tattoo artist who claims to own a copyright on the design. Now Warner Bros. is saying it might alter the box cover art of “Hangover II” DVD and Blu-rays when they come out in December if the lawsuit cannot be settled soon, THR reports. And according to the report, Warner plans to go back and “whitewash” the tattoo once the smash-hit sequel leaves theaters.

“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,” court papers read.

That’s fascinating, and would have to be considered a victory for the tattoo artist. THR speculates that there will be a settlement long before this case is due in court next February.
