Eric Hartsburg, who got the Romney logo tattooed on his face for an eBay bid of $15,000, will have a constant reminder of his losing candidate probably for the rest of his life.
But Hartsburg said that's fine with him.

I don't have any tattoos, I have felt like there was something I felt strongly enough about to have it inked onto my body. I would have an even harder time justifying a political candidate's logo on my face.

Um... This guy realizes that even if Romney had won, he'd eventually have to leave the White House, right??

Eh, It's not exactly like the logo most of it can be covered with hair and if he chooses to pay to have it removed he will still be in profit.

This woman however got home and went oops how on earth am I going to tell my family?

She wanted it at the time rather badly.

I like these kinds of tattoos because they point out the stupid people quite obviously so the rest of us can avoid them.

But you are forgetting about the idiot that spent $15,000 to get this individual to get a face tattoo.
I really don't feel this investment screams "effective campaign strategy".


Well Peas, I believe this thread has gone Thrusday.

Hartsburg, who now has the middle space on his forehead up for auction, said he was is not getting many bites on the offer, but since he said he wasn’t sure if he wanted to do something with that area of his face right now, it was ” OK.”


HAHAHA! Not getting many bites. SHOCKING. Who wouldn't want to advertise on this man's forehead!?

I think I remember the girl with the stars on her face tattoo. Didn't she tell her parents she fell asleep and that the tattoo artist messed up (or something like that)...then it turned out she really got exactly what she asked for and was lying to her parents so she wouldn't get in trouble.

I wouldn't draw on my face with a sharpie marker, much less get a tattoo, that means absolutely nothing to me personally permanently applied to my face! YIKES!

No need to wonder why Romney lost. Just look at the people that voted for him

I remember her too because we discussed here on 2peas - here is the ARTICLE about her. And here is a recent UPDATE about her.

Now about the guy posted in the OP - I just don't understand why someone would pay someone else $15,000 to get a tattoo on his face. I cannot imagine bidding $15,000 to advertise on someone's face for life. Who has that kind of money and why would you spend it that way?

Plus why would you mark yourself for life for $15,000? You know he has probably already spent every penny of it. People can be so strange.

Thanks for the update. Sounds pretty bad. lazer removal is not completely clean and can leave irregular discoloration.

I once had somebody draw a flower on my face. I think it was at a uni party. Enough said. A tattoo artist liked the flower and decided he wanted to copy it.

There was a miscommunication and another artist came over with a needle to make it permanent. eeep!

They apologized and offered me a free tattoo anywhere I wanted. No thanks.
