Eric Hartsburg, also known as Romney Face Tattoo Guy for obvious reasons, is now looking into getting his ink removed … also for obvious reasons.

Hartsburg was “totally disappointed” by the 2012 presidential election results, having worn his support for Republican challenger Mitt Romney so prominently.

The Indiana resident wants his tattoo gone, and not just because Romney lost; his remark about President Barack Obama giving gifts to supporters didn’t go over well.

“It stands not only for a losing campaign but for a sore loser,” Hartsburg, an independent wrestler, says of the face tattoo he got at the behest of a winning eBay bid.

“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,” he lamented to Politico.

“He’s pretty shameful as far as I’m concerned, man.”

Hartsburg says that he’s accepted an offer from tattoo removal chain Dr. TATTOFF, after initially turning them down, to remove the double “R” logo for free.

No word on whether Dr. TATTOFF’s co-investor in that company was Dr. Hindsight.

As for Romney, he attempted to mend fences during lunch at the White House with Obama today, but it looks like at least one supporter is lasering off ties for good.
