Eric Hartsburg, the 30-year-old Michigan City, Ind., man who had Mitt Romney's campaign logo tattooed on his face, has had enough.

Even though in the wake of Romney's defeat, Hartsburg said he planned to keep the 5-by-2-inch image, he told Politico on Wednesday that he's now preparing to get the image removed by laser after Romney's postelection comments. Hartsburg pointed to Romney's claim that President Barack Obama won because he offered gifts to minority voters.

"It stands not only for a losing campaign but for a sore loser," Hartsburg said of his tattoo and its connection to Romney. "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."
