Romney Facial Tattoo on WrestlerI guess Romney and the Koch brothers are not the only ones disappointed about the Presidential outcome.  They were able to convince many Republican voters that they were a shoe in no matter how close the polls were.  Then reality struck on election day.

Eric Hartsburg, a professional wrestler, was disappointed on more than one level.

Hartsburg got the tattoo of Romney’s presidential campaign “R” logo after auctioning off an area of his face on EBay.  The winner of the auction could dictate what the tattoo would be.  The winning bid of $15,000 was made by a fan of Romney’s. Hartsburg is also Republican and had no problem with the choice – at the time.  (btw – he said he’d never get an Obama tattoo)

Now, he’s planning on getting the tattoo lasered off.  The agreement on the auction was that he had to keep it at least until the election was over so he doesn’t lose out on the cash.  This is probably a good thing. He’s going to need a chunk of it to pay for the removal.

$15,000 is quite a bit of money, and hopefully he’s able to use the celebrity status to find other opportunities!

Thankfully, to remove a tattoo like this isn’t nearly so high as an investment, so Eric may walk away with some money in his pocket.

The average cost to remove a tattoo of this size (appears to be 1.5″ wide by about 4″ long) would be between $125 and $195 for any patients that visited our Houston area clinic. Since 2007 New Look Laser Tattoo Removal has been treating unwanted tattoos, including several Obama-related tattoos. Down in Texas, most people would probably keep their Romney tattoos. =)
