When it comes to ink, Steeler Nation is one of the most tattooed fan bases in the NFL.

A new study from Pickwise shows that Steeler fans are in the top 10 when it comes to the number of tattoos they have representing the black and gold.

Using Instagram hashtag information, Pickwise shows that the Steeler Nation comes in at number 10 on the list with 1,236 dedicated posts.

Philadelphia Eagles fans came in first place with 5,764 tattoo posts, followed by the Chicago Bears with 5,638, Las Vegas Raiders with 4,797, New England Patriots with 4,343 and Buffalo Bills with 3,671, rounding out the top five.

Data shows that the teams that hold 2/3 of all Super Bowl victories (Steelers included) are more likely to have tattooed fans.

In addition, modern fans seem to be more willing to get a tattoo after a Super Bowl victory, see the Eagles 2018 Super Bowl victory.
