Well, despite assuring his fans that he "will keep the tattoo for life," Eric Hartsburg, 30, has decided he'd like it removed after all.
"It stands not only for a losing campaign but for a sore loser," the Michigan City native said. "He's pretty shameful as far as I'm concerned, man. There's no dignity in blaming somebody else for buying votes and paying off people. I can't get behind that or stay behind that."
As for Hartsburg, he'll be a little less of a loser, but far more sore than Romney once Dr. TATTOFF finishes removing his tattoo. Luckily, the sessions, which normally cost around $1,000, will be free of charge.
And after he's done, Hartsburg plans to put his face up for auction again. "But," he says, "I might be a little bit more choosy about political tattooing." That's the first good idea he's had in a while.
