Tattoo Artists Sued for Trademark Infringement by City of Rochester Over ‘Flower City Symbol’ Usage

Rochester, NY – The City of Rochester is taking all local tattoo artists to court for the gross overuse of the Flower City Symbol.

“Everyone under 35 has it inked on their body somewhere” says City Offical Bryan Luket. “We’ve got a dang trademark on the thing and yet we aren’t seeing any of the profits!”

Tattoo artists tell The InnerLoop Blog that the Rochester Logo makes up about 90% of their business last year so they expect to make major cuts if the lawsuit doesn’t go in their favor.

Ironically the artist that came up with the Flower City logo refused to get the iconic graphic tattooed on himself opting instead to have a small lilac branded on his right buttcheek.
