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

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.

“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,” he said.

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.

Hartsburg is handling his election disappointment a lot better than others are. A jewelry store owner in Virginia locked his doors last week proclaiming they were “closed to mourn the loss of the America that our forefather endowed to us.”

Billionaire Donald Trump and conservative political commentator Ann Coulter took to Twitter to let the public know how they felt about Romney's loss:


Donald J. Trump
This election is a total sham and a travesty. We are not a democracy!

Donald J. Trump
Our country is now in serious and unprecedented trouble...like never before.

Ann Coulter
The good news is the promise of continued massive unemployment among young people.

Karl Rove, who raised nearly $400 million in super PAC money against Obama, not only refused to believe that President Obama won Ohio on election night, but said the next day that the President only succeeded “by suppressing the vote.”
