Copyright and tattoos: who owns your skin?

Jordan Hatcher did a fascinating presentation on copyright and tattoos at Gikii, last week's UK conference on copyright law. Hatcher explores the legal ramifications of tattoo artists who assert copyright over their works after they've been inked, objecting to the tatts being displayed in advertising — and even seeking to prevent old tattoos from being erased! The presentation isn't online, but the slide deck is, and it's a really interesting read.
