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. Didi Taihuttu was a Bitcoin showman, and father of the Bitcoin Family. He was an early adopter in 2017 of Bitcoin ink. His tattoo symbolizes freedom and not being part of the system.

Some Dogecoin tattoos that you see on Instagram are also a deviation from the logo for the Shiba Inu original dog.
With only six Instagram posts, Ethereum’s logo, an octahedron (a geometric figure in the shape of a diamond), is not as well-known as its cryptocurrency tattoos. NFT tattoos have gained popularity since they were first popularised on Ethereum’s blockchain.
During the peak in NFT tattoos in 2021, as shown on Google Trends graph, one Lazylion NFT collector stated that if the floor price of the Lazylions reached 2 ETH they would tattoo themselves.
