Political leaders are arguably some of the most important people in the world, at the end of the day it is their decisions that affect the lives of millions and the fates of entire nations...a stressful job if ever there was one! Though one aspect of a being a political and world leader is becoming an icon, becoming someone people instantly recognize and someone whose look is as important as their duties. However, it is safe to say that political and world leaders are somewhat conservative in the fashion department...but what if they weren't? What if your favorite political leaders took on the popular fashion trends of the day?...

Well Israeli artist and illustrator Amit Shimoni has done just that, he's take your favorite and most recognizable political leaders and given them a hipster makeover. In illustrated series 'Hipstory' Shimoni has taken the likes of Barrack Obama, Winston Churchill and Vladimir Lenin and given them a hipster reboot, tattoos included and they are totally awesome!! Be sure to click on the above links to see more of Shimoni's brilliant work, but for right now check out these awesome tattooed, hipster leaders!
