$15,000 to tattoo Romney’s logo on your face

Romney logo tattoo

The man from Indiana who tattooed Mitt Romney’s logo on his face during Presidential elections says he was paid $15,000 by the Republican party.

In hindsight, a sound political investment.

    Congratulations to you, Man from Indiana. You are one of the many examples why the Republicans lost the election (thank goodness!).

  3. People need to value themselves a little higher . . . literally!

  4. Brands shouldn’t be paying people to disfigure themselves in this way. But political brands should know better. Utter stupidity.

    Are you sure this isn’t a joke or spoof David?

  5. It was reported at the end of last year, Lee. First I heard was yesterday. The removal process seemingly takes up to a year, costing around $1,000. It was on ABC News, the LA Times

    That’s still a net profit of $14,000 after removal, not a bad plan! I’ll go into my local apple store and get back to you on the results

  7. I hope he gets that removed or has gotten it removed

    Haha! What an idiot. And I thought I had a stupid tattoo…

  9. Looks like a massive head wound

    Actually this dude is really cool (kinda objective lol). Truth be told I got paid for the removal process as well but only had to 1 treatment to fulfil my contract so I did the one and kept my super tat. :) I love it and it’s there for life. Well to be honest I’m crossing my fingers on a Rubio nomination so I can use the Romney “R” and follow it with “UBIO” down my cheek*** at the end of day after the payment for the ink, removal, tv and radio appearances I managed to garner a net gain of roughly 34K. Yeah its “dumb” or “silly” to most everyone and 34K isn’t really a lot of money to all the must be SUPER rich peeps that say awful stuff but the 15K was really a gift cuz I woulda and was goin to do it anyway for free and pay for the ink. I was open in all the little interviews that I just wanted my 15 mins of fame and boy howdy I got it. I enjoyed seein my mug on Letterman, Kimmel, Conan, Anderson Cooper, CNN, Live w/Kelly, America’s worst tattoos (2 episodes) and a pilot for hosting a new tat2 show in the works.
