The heavily tattooed Dennis Rodman said a New Jersey company is trying to snatch the tattoos off his hack — and arms and chest — for a profit.

The judge has temporarily barred Fanatix Apparel Inc. from marketing a T-shiit that has images of tattoos on the back, sleeves and front. He set a May 28 hearing.
Rodman’s tattoos include a baby’s face. The shirt also features a baby’s face.
Fanatix President Mickey Goldschmidt, 24, who runs the company out of his parents’ Teaneck home, said his shirts’ tattoos are only “loosely based” on images from the basketball star, nicknamed the Worm.Kato swears publisher didnt tell the truth

NASHVILLE, Term. — Chart-topping country artist Lee Roy Parnell will be performing at Greene Hall in New Braunfels at IO p.m. on Thursday, June 6.
With his fourth album. Lee Roy Parnell has unleashed the breakthrough album he has been building up to his whole life. Lee Roy Parnell Titled “We All Get Lucky Sometimes,” the album features the soulful country sound he’s known for as well as the fiery side guitar licks that have become Lee Roy’s trademark.
In fact based on the strength of the third single, “Heart’s Desire,” Lee Roy’s album is charting higher than any of his previous three albums ever reached The single, which is the second No. I from the album, was preceded by the smash Top IO ballad, “When a Woman Loves a Man.” The album’s first single, “A Little Bit of You,” shot to No. I and the new single is titled, “Givin’ Water to a Drownin’ Man.”
There are few contemporary country music artists with a history as rich as Lee Roy Parnell's. At the age of six, Lee Roy gave his first performance singing with the legendary Bob Wills, a family friend, on a Fort Worth radio station.
