Who knew a tattoo could cause so much drama? The face ink Ed Helm's character gets in 'The Hangover 2' may get a makeover when the film is released on DVD -- all thanks to a lawsuit that almost stopped the release of the movie altogether.

In the film, Helm's character wakes up to find he has a facial tattoo identical to the one sported by Mike Tyson. However, Tyson's tattoo artist, S. Victor Whitmill wasn't too thrilled to see his work on the big screen. Whitmill sued Warner Bros. for copyright infringement in April and his attempt to delay the film's release failed.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Warner Bros. filed court papers earlier this week stating it will digitally alter the tattoo design on Helm's face in an attempt to prevent the expedited trial Whitmill has requested.
