Sad face. Is that sad face ours, Mitt Romney’s for losing (wow, was that a week ago? Seems like forever ago), or 30-year-old professional wrestler Eric Hartsburg for being so in love with the former Presidential candidate that he went a little needle-happy and got the Romney campaign logo on his face.
It wasn’t even a dare. He was just that confident. We think someone needs to go re-take Common Sense 101. It’s the class right after WTF Do You Think You’re Doing Don’t Put That In Your Mouth Or I Will Call Your Dad.
Hartsburg raised thousands of dollars on eBay to get the tatt going off the logic that he is a “registered Republican” and didn’t mind getting the tattoo because it’s something he could “live with” and something he could “believe in.”
“I’m a tattoo guy, and it was something fun,” Hartsburg said in an interview with Politico. “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.”
Now Hartsburg feels like he is the guy with “egg all over his face, but instead of egg, it’s a big Romney/Ryan tattoo. It’s there for life.”
Nah, dude, if you had taken Common Sense 101 you would have learned that there’s laser tattoo removal. Maybe you can raise some more money on eBay for that. Just a thought.
