Indiana man who got a Romney face tattoo not surprisingly unhappy about the election results

Eric Hartsburg of Indiana, was such a believer in Romney that he raised $5000 on ebay to get a gigantic Romney/Ryan logo tattoo on the side of his face. Now that the election is over and Romney is not president, Hartsburg is unsurprisingly disappointed. And we are all disappointed in him. More than the Zune tattoo guy.

“Totally disappointed, man,” Hartsburg 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.”

Hartsburg’s tattoo covers a 5-by-2 inch space on the side of his face, and he did it after raising $5,000 on eBay for the effort. He didn’t even tell his wife he planned to get the tattoo until about an hour before.

“Right away, she was taken aback,” Hartsburg said, adding that his wife is also a Romney/Ryan supporter.

“My 15-year-old son, however, he was all about it.”

Hartsburg’s takeaway from the election is that “the Republican Party needs quite a bit of reform,” namely in the area of winning over young voters. Hartsburg, 30, lives in Indiana and says he’s gotten plenty of flak from neighbors since Romney went down in defeat.

“I’ve gotten a lot of negative stuff, a lot of ‘F U’s,’” said Hartsburg. “It’s all kinds of ribbage, man. … ‘Your guy lost!’ ‘What are you going to do now?’” Fortunately, he cites his day job as a professional wrestler, so fighting off such opponents is not likely to be difficult.

But 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.”

And perhaps there’s a silver lining for Hartsburg.

“I’m hoping this opens some other doors in the entertainment business,” he said.
