American Presidents With Tattoos

Have you ever wondered if there are any known American Presidents with ink?

The answer is yes, there are a few known tattooed U.S. presidents: Andrew Jackson (7th, 1829–1837), James K. Polk (11th, 1845–1849), and Dwight D. Eisenhower (34th, 1953–1961) were rumored to have tattoos.

But 26th President Theodore Roosevelt (1901–1909) was the only U.S. President to have a confirmed tattoo. Theodore "Teddy" Roosevelt had gunpowder tattoos that he accidentally inflicted on himself as a 13-year-old boy.

OTM Skin specializes in the removal of unwanted tattoos including traumatic tattoos. A traumatic tattoo is when foreign bodies become forcibly embedded in the dermis and create a permanent tattoo. Trauma tattoos can be dangerous to the body and can be removed with laser tattoo removal.

We recommend a consultation before tattoo removal to ensure we can safely and effectively remove your ink. Open by appointment only.
