People get their skin inked for a whole range of reasons, from wanting to commemorate a loved one, to showing off their commitment to their chosen fandom, or even just because it looks good.

Whatever the reason, for tattoo fans, their skin is their canvas, and cryptocurrency is fast becoming one of the latest inspirations for skin art.

For a fellow Crypto Head, the obvious choice for tattoo artwork is inspired by the latest and most popular cryptocurrencies, but just how popular are these tattoos, and which cryptocurrency is the most inked?

With 1,036 posts, ‘crypto tattoo’ was the most popular, but looking at specific cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin was the most inked with 1,012 posts. Ethereum and Dogecoin took third and fourth place respectively, with fewer than 20 posts apiece.

While the number of tattoos of cryptocurrencies outside of Bitcoin was fairly low, we predict that we’ll see this trend continue to grow in popularity with more currencies serving as the inspiration for tattoos.
