It is safe to assume that Eric Hartsburg will file this life decision under “future regrets.”
The Indiana man put the side of his face up for auction on Ebay in late August, according to ABC News.
An anonymous Republican won the auction after bidding $15,000 for Harstburg to get the Romney logo permanently inked on his face — a part of the body more difficult to disguise than, say, an ankle.
Hartsburg told ABC that he originally did the whole thing as a gag, but that he thinks the tat serves a “purpose” — a purpose other than looking like an idiot.
“I am a registered Republican and a Romney supporter,” Hartsburg said. “I didn’t mind getting this tattoo because it is something that I could live with and it’s something that I believe in.”
“In the beginning it was done for gags and publicity,” he said, “but now I see it as a way to encourage young people to vote. We have so many rights that we don’t utilize, and young people need to exercise that right.”
Hartsburg is now privately auctioning off his forehead. He says he will get just about anything that isn’t racist, offensive or pro-Obama.
“No, no, I would definitely not get an Obama tattoo,” he said. The man has limits, after all.
