The crypto ecosystem has a few dedicated followers who have the logo of their favorite cryptocurrency etched into their skin for life.
According to the latest data from Crypto Head, more than 900 people around the world have branded themselves with Bitcoin (BTC) “B”, while the number of Dogecoin (DOGE) and Ethereum (ETH) tattoos is on the rise.
The survey analyzed “Instagram hashtags and Google search volumes” and found a 222% increase in crypto tattoo requests. Despite the lack of price action, more and more cryptocurrency enthusiasts are looking to take their place in the crypto world.
For supporters of the first and leading cryptocurrency, bitcoin tattoos have been around for nearly a decade, while influential bitcoin clients are quickly whitewashing themselves.

Bitcoin author and podcaster Anita Bush got a lightning bolt tattoo on her forearm. In a German-language documentary about bitcoin called “Human B”, she explained that the tattoo “represents energy”. A recipient of a Human Rights Foundation grant recently distributed to Satchies, Bush is an active speaker on the Lightning Network.
