We all make bad decisions but Eric Hartsburg makes really bad ones.

The (kind of) die-hard Mitt Romney fan who tattooed the presidential hopeful's former logo on his face is getting it removed after his contender lost the fight.

Hartsburg, 30, of Michigan City, Ind., had the double "R" tattooed on his face Mike Tyson-style this fall.

It was not all about political support for Mitt and Paul.

He did sell space on his face on eBay and was paid $5000 to put it on, said Slate.

That said, he did support the Romney-Ryan ticket and told Politico that he had no regrets stating that "I did all that I could."

That also said, his Twitter account seems to say that his overriding objective is "2 entertain YOU."

Hartsburg was going to keep the tattoo but said he changed his mind after Romney's post-election comments.

"It stands not only for a losing campaign but for a sore loser," he said, according to Yahoo News.

"He's pretty shameful as far as I'm concerned, man. 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."
