Man gets Romney logo tattooed on face

A 30-year-old Indiana man says an eBay user paid him $15,000 to have the Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney's campaign logo tattooed on his head.

Eric Hartsburg posted an eBay listing in August offering the side of his head as permanent ad space for whatever the winning bidder chose, ABC News reported.

The winning bidder -- a Republican eBay user who preferred to remain anonymous -- paid $15, 000 to have Hartsburg tattoo Mitt Romney's presidential campaign "R" logo on his face. Hartsburg got the tattoo Tuesday.

Hartsburg said the eBay listing started as a joke.

"In the beginning it was done for gags and publicity, but now I see it as a way to encourage young people to vote.

"We have so many rights that we don't utilize and young people need to exercise that right," he said.

Hartsburg is auctioning off his forehead space now, with a minimum bid of $5,000. His only requirement for bidders is that it their ads not be racist or otherwise offensive.
