Nice (Former) Ink, Dude

Remember this guy?

Here’s a refresher:

Eric Hartsburg will no longer be the “Romney face-tat guy” in about a year–the length of time it’ll take for him to remove this tat in 7-10 sessions with “Dr. TATTOFF.” Hartsburg says he’s abandoning the ink because of his candidate’s post-election behavior, especially comments claiming Obama bought minority, youth, and low-income votes with “gifts”:

“It stands not only for a losing campaign but for a sore loser,” Hartsburg 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.”

Hartsburg, a wrestler, will regret the loss of a certain notoriety which expanded his fight opportunities–but he also admits that, “You can’t walk around with a big ‘R’ on your face.”

Keep that in mind, Republicans, if Rubio runs in ’16…

    As if all those trait he suddenly dislikes weren’t there all along.

    Better late than never, I guess.

    Why doesn’t he just add seven more letters and make it “wrestler” across his forehead?

    about exactly why this young man did this.

    yo, cut it

  4. thiokuutoo says:

    So that is an “R”.  I thought it looked more like he did it himself.

  5. Half Glass Full says:

    Then he can claim to be the living embodiment of bipartisanship.

  6. skepticalcitizen says:

    He could have a wild Maori tattoo enhancement built up around the R.

    that had his fifteen minutes peak so early in life  . . .
