× A combination photo shows Kansas Department of Corrections photos of Jeffery Chapman from February 2010. Chapman's lawyers had asked the court for permission to have a professional tattoo artist remove the tattoo that runs from his collarbone to just under his chin and stretches from ear to ear, arguing it could prejudice his defense. State law does not permit a licensed tattoo artist to practice outside a licensed facility and authorities refused to allow one to go to Chapman, who is in jail awaiting trial. A compromise was reached in Barton County District Court, and the attorneys for the state and the defense agreed "to have the defendant wear a turtleneck," said Lisa Taylor a spokeswoman for the Kansas Supreme Court, Office of Judicial Administration. Chapman's lawyers also have asked the court to order that the tattoo not be seen or mentioned during the trial.
