You're reading: Tattoo artist settles over design in ‘Hangover II’

BURBANK, California (AP) — The tattoo artist who sued over Ed Helms' tattoo in "The Hangover Part II" has settled his lawsuit over the design, which resembles the facial ink the artist created for boxer Mike Tyson.

Warner Bros. spokesman Paul McGuire said Monday that the movie studio and S. Victor Whitmill amicably resolved their dispute.

McGuire declined to discuss the case further.

In the movie, Helms’ character, Stu, wakes up in a Bangkok bathtub to find that he has a brand new facial tattoo.

Whitmill claimed that the filmmakers ripped off the copyrighted pattern that he gave Tyson in 2003 in Las Vegas.

The lawsuit tried to block the film’s release, but a judge ruled the film could open as scheduled just two days before it was released May 26. Tyson appeared in the first "Hangover" film.
