Tat Stays in the Hangover II

Good news! Ed Helm's giant face tattoo in The Hangover Part II is staying in The Hangover Part II!

Tattoo artist S. Victor Whitmill's lawsuit against Warner Bros. for the use of the trademarked design he tattooed on Mike Tyson's face in 2003 has been resolved.

This news comes after the studio had planned to digitally alter the tattoo in the film for DVD release, but fortunately the two parties struck a deal after an all-day mediation in St. Louis on Friday.

Although we imagine Mr. Whitmill received a hefty check since the film has grossed around $500 million all over the world, what happens in the courtroom apparently stays in the courtroom. No details of the settlement have been released and it sounds like that's the way both parties want to keep it, as Whitmill's attorney said:

“Warner Bros. and Mr. Whitmill have amicably resolved their dispute. No other information will be provided.”

Bummer. We'd definitely like to know how much cash a tattoo design can get you if it sneaks into a major motion picture.

How much money do U think this guy got from Warner Bros. for the use of his design in The Hangover Part II?
