Some good comes from the Hangover 2 for one Missouri tattoo artist, no one else
The Hollywood Reporter says Warner Bros. has settled Missouri tattoo artist S. Victor Whitmill’s lawsuit over the ink appearing on Ed Helm’s face in the sequel. Whitmill claimed that he was the victim of copyright infringement because he had originally created the tattoo design for boxer Mike Tyson, who appears in both films.
Both Warner Bros. and Whitmill are keeping the terms of the settlement
quiet, but given that the film has now made close to $500 million worldwide
at the box office and is the highest grossing R-rated comedy of all time, we’re
assuming that Zach Galifianakis personally drove a dump truck filled with
cash to Whitmill’s house.
