It's things like this that make it difficult to be a fan of professional wrestling. Independent pro wrestler Eric Hartsburg, who I'm assume wrestles under the name The Ultimate Idiot, auctioned off tattoo advertising space on his face for $15,000 on EBay.

The winner, who has yet to be named, chose the logo of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney. Hartsburg had the tattoo placed on his right temple.

But get this: Not wanting to settle for just $15,000, he plans to auction off tattoo space on his forehead next.

Here's guessing the Romney campaign won't be using this guy in their advertising any time soon, despite the amazing amount of loyalty he has shown.

Hartsburg did say that he did turn down a higher offer because the tattoo the person wanted him get for was "too lewd."

It's good to see he has some standards in place.
