Pro wrestler Eric Hartsburg auctioned off a part of his face on eBay to the second highest bidder.
The prize? A tattoo of the Romney/Ryan logo.
Hartsburg told ABC News, “I am a registered Republican and a Romney supporter. I didn’t mind getting this tattoo because it is something that I could live with and it’s something that I believe in.”
He further said that his tattoo also serves an educational purpose: to let young people know that they didn’t have to be “rich or elderly” to be a Republican.
Hartsburg said that his tat hasn’t been well-received: people believe that he’s a “boogeyman” or generally said “F*** you.”
The donor, a Republican who asked to remain unidentified, paid $15,000 for Hartsburg to tat up his face. Hartsburg refused the highest bidder, he told ABC News, because the tat suggestion was “lewd.”
Would Hartsburg consider an Obama/Biden tattoo? “Definitely not,” he stated to ABC News.
