in appreciation

Summary from the Daily Beast:

“I’m the guy who has egg all over his face,” Eric Hartsburg tells Politico. “But instead of egg, it’s a big Romney/Ryan tattoo. It’s there for life.” Hartsburg raised $5,000 on eBay for the 5-by-2-inch tat. Now he claims he has no regrets. “I’m hoping this opens some other doors in the entertainment business,” he says.

  1. My tattoos are all the kind you press on with warm water, even the one that says “Mom” (hey, you never know). But I’m told that that there are real ones now where the color is encased in polymer so they’re much easier to remove with lasers — tattoos for the ambivalent — just in case anyone’s interested.
