From the Dept. of Regrettable Tattoos: The Romney Ryan Logo


"R" is for regret, especially if it's in the form of the 'Aquafresh'-style logo of the Romney-Ryan campaign, and it's tattooed on your temple.

Politico reports:

Suffice to say, he’s not happy with Tuesday’s results.

“Totally disappointed, man,” Hartsburg told POLITICO. “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.”

Hartsburg’s tattoo covers a 5-by-2 inch space on the side of his face, and he did it after raising $5,000 on eBay for the effort. He didn’t even tell his wife he planned to get the tattoo until about an hour before.

Right away, she was taken aback,” Hartsburg said, adding that his wife is also a Romney/Ryan supporter.

“My 15-year-old son, however, he was all about it.”

  1. The election outcome wouldn't have made any difference to how stupid he's going to feel the rest of his life. Face tattoos are never a good idea, period.

  2. It looks, fake, though. Which makes things worse, if it's not fake.

  3. If we could only tattoo all idiots like this, we'd be able to tell who they were from a mile away.

    I wonder if he'll now raise another 5 grand to get the stupid thing lasered off of his face.

  4. You must be really stupid to think a face tatoo is a good idea

  5. Can this be real? I can't believe anyone was so foolish. I checked electoral-vote every day for months. Not one day's polls showed Romney winning. Obviously Romney had a chance but Obama had a good chance too. This person seemingly had no concept of polls--to say nothing of their troubling support for Romney.

  6. On behalf of all Hoosiers, I apologize for this idiot's decision.

    And that apology is extended especially to his wife.

  7. That, is the face of crazy.

  8. More important I hope his stupidity is not heredity. If this gene pool of having any chance to evolve,lets hope his son is able to get a college education and beyond.

  9. The sad thing is that he breeds.

  10. It matches the haircut.

  11. At least the marriage can be erased.

  12. "Hartsburg, 30, lives in Indiana ..."
    "My 15-year-old son, however, he was all about it."

    Ah, yes, those wonderful Republican family values on display.

  13. "And that apology is extended especially to his wife."

    You're apologizing to a woman that supported Mitt Romney that her husband got a facial tattoo for Mitt Romney?

    I think she has a lot more to worry about than just the tattoo...

  14. I hope he's secure in his employment, cuz he's never going to get a worthwhile job as long as that monstrosity is on his face.. He'll become one of the 47%...

  15. Well, he raised more than enough for a laser removal. OWWEE ZOWEY!!!!

  16. Classy and oh so appropriate. I just hope I don't hear of any Obama supporter fool enough to do something like this.

  17. He needs the Obama "O" tattooed on his LEFT side! LOL

  20. Little does he know, he lucked out!

    The embarrassment he's feeling now is NOTHING compared to the embarrassment he would have felt a few years after a Romney win!

    Posted by: TampaZeke | Nov 12, 2012 10:40:35 AM

  21. Maybe he could have (Just Kidding) tatted below it. LOL
    Dumb ass.

  22. I do not feel sorry for that man. That tattoo is worse than the Zune tattoo that one guy got, but at least he was smart enough to put it on his arm and was probably relatively painless compared to what that guy is going to experience.

    Posted by: Garst | Nov 12, 2012 11:47:26 AM

  23. i suppose we should all be relieved he didn't make up some story about "Liberals tattooing this to his face against his will" ;-)

  24. Idiot...
