Yes, it looks like it is coming to that. The NYT has an article about efforts by tattoo artists to claim copyrights in their tattoos.

It would have been useful to include the views of an economist on this issue. It would be difficult to imagine a more wasteful intervention into the market than giving tattoo artists a monopoly on the use of specific images. The enforcement problem is beyond absurd.
