The guy who got under President Clinton's skin has a new cause -- tattoos.

Former special prosecutor Ken Starr is now trying to overturn South Carolina's tattooing ban. His law firm is representing Ronald White for free.

Starr is appealing White's tattoo conviction to the U.S. Supreme Court. But the justices haven't decided whether they'll hear the case.

White was fined $2,500 and placed on five year's probation for giving an illegal tattoo that was shown on television. Starr views the skin art case as a matter of self-expression.

He said a government ban on tattoos is "intolerable in a free society."
