They say a picture is worth one thousand words.
So, if you glance up at the above image, then you pretty much know the gist of the story about Eric Hartsburg and his latest tattoo.
But, allow us to give the details. ...
Yes, that's a Romney-Ryan campaign logo tattooed on the 30-year-old Indiana man's face. Yes, he's a registered Republican. Yes, he plans on voting for Mitt Romney. But no, he didn't exactly do this on his own initiative.
You see, Eric's an enterprising kind of guy and recently posted an ad on eBay -- offering to tattoo whatever the winning bidder wanted on to the side of his face. A Romney supporter with deep pockets won the auction by offering $15,000 and Eric said yes (though there were was larger offer that he turned down because it was for a lewd graphic).
Eric's reasoning to deface his face seems to be two-fold: he told one reporter "you only live once" (the long form of "YOLO"), and he told another that he sees it "as a way to encourage young people to vote."
But, don't worry Barack Obama supporters -- we doubt that seeing a campaign logo face tattoo will sway young swing voters -- especially since Eric's now auctioning off space for another tattoo on his forehead. Starting bid is $5,000.
God. Bless. America.
