Who owns your tattoo? Maybe not you
Copyright and trademark law mean that the body art inked into your skin may leave you open to an infringement lawsuit. More than 20 percent of all Americans have at least one tattoo, and for millennials that number jumps to almost 40 percent. What could be more intimately a part of you than a work of body art permanently inked into your skin? You probably assume that the tattoo on your body belongs to you.
