You can get crypto tattoos on the moon! Last year, the number of searches for Bitcoin and Doge inks doubled.

Some crypto ecosystem members have the logo of their favorite cryptocurrency permanently etched on to their skin.

According to Crypto Head’s latest data, over 900 people have tattooed themselves with Bitcoin ( Bitcoin), “B”, while Dogecoin( DOGE), and Ethereum ( ETH_) are increasing in popularity.

Research analyzing “Instagram hashtags” and Google search volumes revealed that crypto tattoo searches have increased 222%. Even though low-quality price action is not being taken, more crypto enthusiasts are looking to get inked with a cryptocurrency logo.

Bitcoin tattoos were popularized by followers of the seminal cryptocurrency. However, they have been around almost a decade and influential Bitcoiners were quick inking them.
