Eric Hartsburg Tattoos Mitt Romney Logo Onto Forehead, Speaks Out After Election

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/11/12/eric-hartsburg-tattoos-mitt-romney-logo-speaks-out_n_2117311.html



It's quite possible that no one is more upset about Mitt Romney's loss than Eric Hartsburg.

The pro-wrestler from Indiana permanently tattooed Romney's presidential campaign logo on his face before the election. Hartsburg was paid $5,000 to get the 5-by-2-inch tattoo after he put his face up "for sale" on eBay.

Hartsburg has no regrets, he told Politico, but he is “totally disappointed” by the election’s results.

Hartsburg, who did not tell his wife about the tattoo until an hour before he got it, said he has received a lot of negative feedback. But the self-proclaimed “tattoo guy” said his motive was to make politics fun and he hopes the tattoo will open some doors for him in the entertainment business.

1. Just $5,000?

 

Wow, he sold himself cheap. This mark is for life - and it is a mark of failure. I bet he will end up paying more than 5k to have it removed.

2. Since he's a pro-wrestler ...

... wouldn't it be cheaper to pay for a new tattoo overlaying it? There are shops that specialize in that sorta thing. Being a wrestler, a face tattoo isn't career ending. Quite the opposite.

5. Entertainment business? The Wayne Newton Revue? Palin's next ghastly reality show?

Meatloaf? Exercise equipment scams with Chuck Norris? Oh, the opportunities are endless, dude.
