Warner Bros. Will Alter Stu’s Tattoo In The Hangover Part II DVDs, So Help Them God

By

Warner Bros. is not having it, and if someone forces their hand, they will digitally alter Stu’s tribal ink to get around the Hangover II face tattoo law suit. The legal battle set in motion by Mike Tyson’s tattoo artist S. Victor Whitmill is still on-going, but the studio says it will change the tattoo to something less iconic when the film heads to DVD this December. “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,” said the studio in their brief. The jury trial date for the suit isn’t until Feb. 21, 2012, so it seems like the studio either has to spend the time and money to meticulously change 75% of the film’s images, or more likely, reach a settlement. I say screw it and change that bad boy into a really bad-ass dragon with yin-yang symbols for eyes.
