There are a few dedicated followers in the cryptocurrency ecosystem who have imprinted the logo of their favorite cryptocurrency on their skin for life.
According to the latest data from Crypto Head, more than 900 people around the world have got a Bitcoin (BTC) “B” tattoo, while Dogecoin (DOGE) and Ethereum (ETH) tattoos are on the rise.
The study analyzed “Instagram hashtags and Google search volumes” showing that cryptocurrency tattoo searches increased by 222%. Despite the sluggish price momentum, more and more cryptocurrency enthusiasts are looking to get a cryptocurrency logo.

The followers of the first and original cryptocurrency, bitcoin tattoos have been around for almost a decade, while bitcoin influencers were quick to tattoo themselves. Didi Taihuttu, bitcoin showman and father of the bitcoin family, was one of the first bitcoin ink users in 2017. His tattoo symbolizes “freedom and is no longer part of the system.”
Anita Posh, Bitcoin author and podcaster, has a lightning bolt tattooed on her forearm. She explained in a documentary about bitcoin in German called “Human B” that for people who don’t know, the tattoo “represents energy.” The recipient of a recent Human Rights Foundation grant distributed in Satoshi, Posh is a passionate supporter of the Lightning network.
While Dogecoin is well outside the top five cryptocurrencies, it remains the second most popular cryptocurrency tattoo search with 700 searches per month on average. However, the hype around Dogecoin has clearly subsided in 2021.
The huge spike in Doge tattoo requests at the beginning of 2021 has since declined (highlighted in red), despite Doge’s biggest fan, Elon Musk, continuing to popularize the currency.
Also, some of the Dogecoin tattoos on Instagram are part of the logo of the original Shiba Inu dog.
As for cryptocurrency tattoos, the Ethereum logo in the form of an octahedron, a diamond-shaped geometric figure, is less stuffed with only 6 posts on Instagram. However, NFT tattoos that were popularized on the Ethereum blockchain are gaining popularity.
