Dude with Romney Logo Tattooed to His Face Says He Has No Regrets [VIDEO]


I’d thought many times of getting a tattoo a number of times, but it was always “what to get?”

Times that I’ve brought it up to my wife, she always told me, “get what you want, just don’t get my name tattooed!”

(Maybe she was trying to tell me something!)

Have you ever gotten a tattoo you’ve come to regret… the name of the girl who cheated on you with your best friend burned into your bicep; and are now thinking, “…boy that was a stupid move!”

Which kinda reminds me of Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thorton getting matching tattoos that she’s since has had removed, but now shows up as a splotchy disfiguration.

Consider the case of Eric Hartsburg of Indiana.

He’s a professional wrestler by trade, and self avowed tattoo guy who decided to offer his face to the highest bidder. His only stipulation was that whoever tattooed his face didn’t inscribe anything either lewd or racist.

So for a princely sum of 15 grand, someone tattooed the Romney/Ryan logo to the side of his face.

According to this, when asked how he felt, he said:

‘Totally disappointed, man,’ Hartsburg, 30, told Politico. ‘I’m the guy who has egg all over his face, but instead of egg, it’s a big Romney/Ryan tattoo. It’s there for life.’

Even though he’ll be reminded of the failed campaign every time he looks in the mirror, he said he had no regrets.

‘I’m a tattoo guy, and it was something fun,’ he said. ‘I was trying to make politics fun. I didn’t change no lives; I’m no hero. But I shed blood for this campaign, and I’m glad to know that I did all that I could.’

Hartsburg originally offered the skin for sale on eBay with a starting bid of $5,000 but the money tripled before someone finally won the right to mark him forever.

Hartsburg, who also works as a professional wrestler, explained his motivation to ABC News when he first posted the ad.

‘I wish it could be a more noble cause than just saying, ‘hey, let’s have a good time’,’ Hartsburg told them in August, before the winning bid for a Romney design. ‘But you only live once, and I was born with a forehead, so why not?’

But when the buyer offered $15,000 for a Romney tattoo, Hartsburg said it was something he could live with because he was a registered Republican.

Even though he admits to being the butt of more than a few jokes since his candidate lost, he’s upbeat about the future.
‘I’m hoping this opens some other doors in the entertainment business,’ he said.

Probably limit his to a few roles, at best. Wouldn’t you say?

So what have you had burned into your skin that you wish you never did?
