Abraham Lincoln Tattoos

On November 19, 1863, President Abraham Lincoln opened a cemetery in Gettysburg, Pa., with what would become the most famous two-minute speech in American history, the Gettysburg Address. The speech that began “Four score and seven years ago” was given 150 years ago, or seven score and ten years ago using Lincoln’s preferred counting method. At the time the speech was met with minimal fanfare and people were surprised by it’s brevity; since then it has been memorized by every American student, engraved on the Lincoln Memorial and considered by many to be the defining moment of Lincoln’s presidency.

To commemorate the anniversary we found this group of tattoos paying homage to the 16th President of the United States.

A portrait of Lincoln sits in front of text of the famous speech.
