Supporters of President Obama celebrated his reelection in a variety of ways, like getting tipsy, or partying in front of the White House. But that wasn't serious enough for some Obama fans. Instead, they etched his name or face permanently onto their bodies. Here are the first Obama reelection tattoos popping up on Twitter and Instagram.

"This girl at my school got tatted so they know it's real hahaha! God stop all those tricks they tried." (Instagrammed November 8.)

"Our first #ObamaTattoo done by #TrinityCurt. Now that's dedication!" (Instagrammed November 8.)

A planned tattoo: "my tattoo artist @kevo2021"Creative Skills" #Obama  #Forward #MyPresidentIsBlack." (Tweeted November 8.)
