The New York Post reports that possible senatorial contender Caroline Kennedy had a small butterfly tattooed on her arm during a family vacation in the '80s.

During a night out in Hong Kong, Caroline, her brother, John F. Kennedy Jr., and her cousins Edward "Teddy" Kennedy Jr., 47, and Kara Anne Kennedy, 48, challenged one another with a mischievous dare, a source said, noting that the group had consumed a few drinks.


The boys challenged the girls to get a late-night "tat" at a nearby parlor.

Caroline and Kara went first and emerged "bruised and bloodied," emblazoned with butterflies on their arms.

New York Magazine rebuts that this is old news, and that the tattoo appeared to be partially removed at the Democratic National Convention.


See, it's been known for decades that Caroline Kennedy once had a tattoo of a butterfly inside her elbow. She even wore a band around her arm on her wedding day in 1986 to hide it in pictures. But now that she's being talked about to replace Hillary Clinton in the Senate, the tabloid brings up the story as if it's breaking news. (Actually, as you can see in this picture from the DNC, it has partially been removed.)

What do you think? And which other politicians or political figures have tattoos?
