It was intended to be a joke, but Ed Helms‘ facial tattoo in Hangover Part II has got one tattoo artist taking Warner Bros. to court. S. Victor Whitmill is the man who designed Mike Tyson’s famous facial tattoo, and now the exact same tattoo appears on Ed Helms’ Â face in the movie.
Whitmill claims the design is copyrighted and was used without his permission. Â A judge has ruled that the film can be released this week as planned, but has advised Whitmill that he can seek a permanent injunction against Warner Bros. for the infringement, which his legal team is in the process of doing.
