    Cardinal's Fan sues over tattoo

    Just ran across this and had not see it posted before

    MAY 1--The day after the St. Louis Cardinals clinched the 2006 World Series, fan Jason Harris went to a local tattoo parlor to permanently memorialize the team's tenth championship. Harris, a 20-year-old college student who had never previously gotten a tattoo, headed for The House of Ink in St. Louis, where he wanted the words "St. Louis Cardinals, World Series Champions, 2006" inked on his back. However, according to a negligence lawsuit Harris just filed, the resulting fist-sized tattoo was marred by errors for which he now wants in excess of $25,000 in damages. Harris's Circuit Court complaint, a copy of which you'll find below, notes that an unnamed tattoo artist "incorrectly spelled words and put the wrong year on Plaintiff's person causing severe damage." In an interview, Harris told TSG that instead of "2006," the year 2000 was inked between his shoulder blades (the New York Yankees won the World Series that year). And the word "World" was misspelled as "Worlb." Additionally, the word "Champions" was reduced to "Champs" (though that seems minor compared to the other two mistakes). Harris said he learned of the errors in the $190 tattoo the following day when he showed it to his mother. When he went back to the parlor to complain, a worker proposed to correct the mistakes, an offer Harris said he declined. He is now considering having the Cardinals tattoo removed entirely, since obscuring it would require him being inked with an even larger tattoo. Thomas Baxter, the House of Ink owner, was unaware of the lawsuit when contacted by a TSG and would not comment beyond saying that he "needs to research the situation and find out what's going on."

    And that, my friends, is why one should have the artist sketch out the design on paper before inking you.

    If MLB gets a wind of this, they'll sue for copyright infringement.
