First thing’s first. This man who tattooed a Romney-Ryan logo on his face is an independent professional wrestler from Indiana. I think that cuts him a little bit of slack while on his way to his seat. You know, because he needs to have one. Even though we all know tattoos aren’t such a permanent decision anymore, we realize that they are still a very declarative statement to who we are as individuals, expressing ourselves visually.
30-year-old, Eric Hartsburg told the press that he was “totally disappointed” by Romney’s loss, but still supported him and even assured his fans that this tattoo was a lifelong choice. Welp, not so fast. The wrestler is ready to part with his Republican-lovin’ ink, claiming that it was Romney’s post-election chatter about President Obama's “gifts” to voters that changed his mind:
“It stands not only for a losing campaign but for a sore loser. 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 told Politico that he is “probably not done with political ink” even though to remove this tattoo, the fighter has to have more than 10 painful sessions, of which he’s getting free of charge. I guess that’s just the perk of going viral? Sheesh, this man has a lot in common with Stacey Dash, right? *evil laugh*
