Lawsuit Outta Nowhere!! Randy Orton's Tattoo Artist Sues 2k

Ladder!  Lawsuit!  Artist Catherine Alexander is suing Take-Two Interactive Software; 2K Games, Inc.; 2K Sports, Inc.; Visual Concepts Entertainment; Yuke's Co, Ltd. and Yuke's LA Inc. for what she feels is infringement on her copyrighted work.  Her lawsuit says that the use of her tattoos is copyright infringement.  She has previously contacted World Wrestling Entertainment about their use of Orton's likeness and his tattoos.  They offered her 450$ for the right to use the designs in 2009.  She declined the offer.  It's unclear the damages she is seeking.
