"I'm a tattoo guy, and it was something fun," Eric "Erico" Hartsburg, a father of one from Michigan City, told the news site. "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."
Still, Hartsburg admits he was "totally disappointed" by Romney's loss last week. "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's received his share of "negative stuff" for auctioning off his face on eBay, but Hartsburg is taking it in stride. "I love Mitt,tats n attn," he told one Twitter follower who called him a fool. "So 2 me its genious."
