The AI Avatar trend is viral on Instagram, Twitter, TikTok, and other social media platforms.

On Instagram, many celebrities, bodybuilders, and influencers are taking part in the trend.

Basically, they turn multiple pictures of themselves into AI-generated art.

The generated art will look photorealistic and an accurate representation of yourself.

Certain AI like Lensa AI will take your skin tone, facial features, and hair into consideration.

In this guide, you’ll learn what is the AI trend on Instagram and what is the app to generate AI photos, selfies, and art.
