15 shocking election-inspired tattoos


There are oodles of ways to show your political pride. You can wear a button, a T-shirt, or a hat. You can layer another bumper sticker on your car, stick a placard in your window, or throw an embroidered pillow on your couch. But that kind of flair is ever so temporary. True believers brand their partisan allegiances into their flesh for all eternity.

If you, too, want a more permanent form of candidate support, follow these voters to the local tattoo parlor where, with a little bit of money, and a decent threshold for pain, you can have your presidential preference forever inked onto your skin. Below, a look at some of the more daring, bewildering, and, well, yuge tattoos people got this presidential election cycle.
