A northern Indiana man who had the Mitt Romney-Paul Ryan campaign logo tattooed onto his face "to make politics fun" says it's time for it to come off.

Eric Hartsburg of Michigan City, says he plans to have the red-and-blue "R'' removed from its prominent place next to his right eye.

He says a Republican supporter paid him US$15,000 (NZ$18,312) to get the tattoo and keep it until at least the election was over.

Weeks after President Barack Obama defeated the former Massachusetts governor in the November 6 election, Hartsburg says "now to me it represents not a losing campaign, but a sore losing campaign."

Hartsburg says he reached out to the Romney campaign about the tattoo, but feels snubbed that no campaign staffer ever contacted him.
