Big Brother’s Will Kirby to remove Romney face tattoo

Big Brother winner Will Kirby is the go-to guy for removing unwanted things from one’s body: Having previously removed Mike “Boogie” Malin’s penis wart, he will now remove a tattoo of Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign logo from a man’s face.

I wasn’t aware, but the multi-talented reality star “is widely considered to be a leading authority in the art and science of laser tattoo removal and laser hair removal,” according to his bio on the web site of Dr. Tattoff. Will is on the company’s board and their medical director, and after the election, it turned a Facebook post into an offer to remove it for free.

Eric Hartsburg initially rejected the offer, saying, “I still love the ink and I am a man of my word and will keep the tattoo for life,” but now, he told Politico that he changed his mind because of Romney’s post-election comments: “It stands not only for a losing campaign but for a sore loser. He’s pretty shameful as far as I’m concerned, man.”

While treatments take “maybe 60 to 90 seconds,” Will said, “I’m estimating that he’s probably going to need about seven to 10 sessions. It’s going to take the better part of a year.”

Here’s Hartsburg explaining to Jimmy Kimmel a few weeks ago how he got the tattoo and why he was going to keep it:
