Study Shows a Growing Interest in Crypto and Bitcoin Tattoos
A report published by Crypto Head and shared with Bitcoin.com News indicates that people have been more interested in getting crypto-related ink done than last year. Crypto Head’s study analyzed Google search volume and Instagram hashtag data, which show interest in crypto tattoos has risen 222% during the last 12 months. According to the research findings, 1,900 queries involved the search term “crypto tattoo.”
“Bitcoin tattoo,” on the other hand, saw 1,600 search queries over the last 12 months and “dogecoin tattoo” had 700 searches. Meanwhile, the second-largest crypto asset, in terms of market capitalization, ethereum (ETH) had the least amount of tattoo-related queries. In addition to leveraging Google search data, Crypto Head researchers looked at metrics stemming from Instagram as well.
Findings from the report show that bitcoin (BTC) tattoo-related themes reign on the social media application Instagram with 986 posts adorned with the hashtag “#bitcointattoo.” Roughly 956 Instagram posts had the hashtag “#cryptotattoo” in the post and only 11 posts contained the hashtag “#dogecointattoo.” Once again, the hashtag “#ethereumtattoo” was the least recorded hashtag on Instagram with only six posts in total.
In addition to the research published by Crypto Head, other social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter, show a number of posts with the hashtag “#cryptotattoo.” The hashtag “#bitcointattoo” is also very relevant on social media platforms like Twitter as a slew of individuals have shared pictures of their Bitcoin-themed ink over the last few years.
