25 President Tattoos from Obama to Romney to Washington! (Photos)

As an American we have the right to choose our president through the power of our vote. Many of us select a candidate that we admire, that we trust, that we believe in. But generally our allegiance to a president is proven just through our words, our conversations and our vote. Others prove their admiration for our country’s leaders through a totally different format. There are some politically minded citizens who get a portrait of their favorite president permanently tattooed on their skin, going far beyond just going into the voting booth.

Check out these 25 tattoos of presidents from tributes to Barack Obama, Mitt Romney and even a boom box holding Honest Abe. Which one is your favorite?
