Over the course of the last few years, a strange new legal issue has been emerging in America.  Some tattoo artists are claiming copyright infringement over tattoos that they gave certain people.  Now, let’s be clear; when I say “certain people” I mean celebrities.  Let’s face it, no tattoo artist is going to try and get legal entitlement to a tattoo on the guy who works at your local supermarket or pub.  At least not yet.  What’s happened is that there have been several lawsuits filed against celebrities and Warner Brothers studios themselves for tattoos that appeared in the public eye, without paying the artists responsible any royalties.

‘Late last year, for example, Stephen Allen, a tattoo artist, sued video game maker Electronic Arts and former Miami Dolphins running back Ricky Williams over a tattoo Allen put on Williams’ bicep. The tattoo appeared on the cover of EA’s “NFL Street” video game. Allen claimed that the reproduction and display of the tattoo violated his copyright.’

‘Allen’s was not the first lawsuit. Others include a 2011 case brought by tattoo artist Victor Whitmill against Warner Bros.The suit was filed just weeks before the release of the hit film “The Hangover: Part II.” In the film, comedian Ed Helms wakes up with a copy of boxer Mike Tyson‘s famous Maori-inspired facial tattoo. Whitmill claimed that Warner Bros. owed him for re-creating the Tyson tattoo. The case was settled for an undisclosed sum.’

On one hand, I can completely identify with the tattoo artists; when multi-millionaires are gaining attention and profiting from your own creation(s), then it does seem a touch unfair that none of these profits are making their way to the artist who helped put the multi-millionaires in that position in the first place.  Prominently displaying an artist’s tattoo in an advertisement of any sort – regardless of whether or not the tattoo in question has anything at all to do with the advertisement, is capitalising on an image.  The original tattoo is a work of art that is helping to create the image being sold by whatever corporate entity.  In the case of Victor Whitmill, Warner Brothers had expressly recreated Whitmill’s tattoo without first asking his permission or paying him any royalties whatsoever.  That’s a case of a major Hollywood studio overstepping their bounds and literally stealing someone else’s work for profit.

EA Games' "NFL Street" showed an illustrated version of Ricky Williams' bicep tattoo.

On the other hand, as I said before, so far this issue deals entirely with celebrities.  However, as with most nascent laws and legal quandaries, the next few years and incidents of this sort of thing will ultimately set the legal precedent.  The last thing that I want to see (and I’m sure that I’m not the only one), is a new era of tattoo in which artists are claiming copyright on every tattoo they place on their clients, regardless of one’s celebrity status.  When a client pays for a tattoo, they are paying for the tattoo – no more, no less.  If the tattooist wants to ensure they make a decent profit off their work, then they should charge what they feel to be a decent amount for said work.  It could be argued that saying your work is being profited off of by a celebrity appearing in an advertisement with his/her tattoos visible is like Calvin Klein or Ralph Lauren claiming copyright infringement against celebrities who happen to be wearing their respective clothing lines in advertisements.

Claiming copyright over another person’s flesh moves things into a rather dicey legal area that unfortunately has everything to do with money and nothing to do with art.  As I’ve said, in the case of a corporation attempting to take an artist’s work without paying for it, there should certainly be an avenue of legal recourse for the artist to follow.  Simply seeing one of your tattoos on a celebrity in an advertisement?  Hard to really justify an artist claiming control over someone else’s body.  Let’s not get so carried away with the pursuit of wealth that we forget the real reasons for the art we create, okay?

Gimme a break.  I mean it.  Hell, I don’t have kids and I don’t plan on being a dad any time soon, but in a way I think that makes me even more qualified to speak on this topic, for the simple reason that I don’t have any bias.  I mean, I’m sure I’m not the only one who is sick and tired of other people trying to tell other people how to raise their kids.  Basically, it all breaks down like this: if you have a kid, then you have a responsibility to raise him or her so that he/she grows up to be a decent, moral human being.  If you don’t do that, then you’re an asshole.  Simples.

But this is just going too far: psychologists in Melbourne, Australia are criticising an upcoming tattoo expo because it will permit children to enter and even allow kids to get airbrushed tattoos!  Gasp!  Oh no!  Won’t somebody please think of the children?  Well I’ll tell you what – I’m thinking of the children and I don’t see anything at all wrong with them coming to an event like this.  Some of the people that are complaining about this whole thing take issue with the fact that the Australian Tattoo and Body Art Expo will have burlesque dancers. Okay, burlesque dancers are sexual, but not in a disgusting or utterly offensive manner.  Oh no, don’t let your kid stand and watch a woman dance.  Your kid should be at home playing Grand Theft Auto V, murdering drug lords and prostitutes.  THAT’S much healthier for the little tyke.

Tattoo Expo 2013

In fact, the only reason why this is causing a controversy with anyone is because it’s a tattoo related event.  Well I’m sorry, but exposing kids to tattoos from an early age is one of the most responsible things a parent can do.  It doesn’t mean that every single kid whose parents took them to the expo and who got an airbrushed tattoo will be rushing out as soon as they are of legal age and getting tattooed.  And even if it did, who the hell cares?  Well, some Australian psychologists and an assortment of uptight, prudish do-gooders really care, I guess.

‘”It’s a great idea, and I’ll tell you why it’s a great idea; it’s those simple things that will change the stereotypical view of what we do,” Mr Swaneveld said.

Mr Swaneveld described some of the entertainment at last year’s expo as “trashy” and said he was pleased pole dancers and seductive strippers no longer featured.

Organiser Matt Johnson said it was “entirely appropriate” to have children at the expo as there was “nothing illegal going on”.

“Lots of people have tattoos and a lot of them have young kids, so that’s the reason (they’re allowed),” Mr Johnson said.

He said parents needed to stay with their kids at the children’s corner and the tattoo artists were approved to work with children.’

All I know is that my parents never took me to a tattoo expo.  I think it would have been pretty cool if they had.  They did however, put me in Catholic school, basically guaranteeing that I would become an atheist.  So there.  The moral high ground can also be total rubbish and in this particular case, it definitely is.  For what it’s worth, I salute every parent who takes their child/children to this event.

Did you know?

There is less probability for infection with Laser Liposuction because a smaller incision is required for the procedure. Also blood loss, a common complication with traditional liposuction, is minimal since the procedure is more accurate at targeting fat, and, therefore, does less damage to surrounding blood vessels. Any blood that does leak from a damaged vessel will evaporate from the heat of the laser.
