TikTok is the king of short-videos social media. It boasts a whopping 1 billion monthly active user base worldwide, with over 138 million coming from the US alone. Yet, the number keeps growing by the day!
That explains why some Gen Z’s like Addison Rae and millennials like Kat Norton are becoming famous and making real wealth off the platform!
But unlike them, you don’t need to show your face to go viral, gain followers, and make money on TikTok. In this article, I’ve shared over 17 viral TikTok content ideas without showing face for 2023.
You only need the best TikTok phone, or you can live stream the videos directly from your PC. You can do TikTok directly from your PC/Mac, just like Twitch!
How Do You Become a Faceless TikTok?
The following are the top TikTok content ideas without showing face for 2022:
TIP: I did this other in-depth guide that features over 33 Tiktok content ideas. It includes tips, tricks, and online tools like Many.Bio that lets you easily make viral TikToks and money from these ideas. So, be sure to check it!
Well, let’s dive into the faceless TikTok content ideas…
Unseenfootball has amassed close to 400k followers and 15m likes on their faceless TikTok account. All by just posting TikToks about EPL football highlights.
TikTok is the new YouTube! Some YouTubers make 6-figures by just sharing faceless sports highlights and tips.
The best part about it is the many sub-niches that you can focus on. Don’t just limit yourself to football or soccer or a broad area like EPL!
Why not try other TikTok-friendly sports like tennis. Or baseball. Or formula 1. You will be spoiled for choice when you dig a little deeper into some of the popular sports.
Once you have identified a type of sport that you’re great at! And you have found that people are searching it on TikTok. You can then go ahead and come up with some really cool TikTok content ideas without showing face for that sport.
For your benefit, let’s take the example of soccer. Here are some content ideas to grow your faceless TikTok within a few weeks:
- Pick a league with many followers like EPL and share highlights.
- Pick a player with many fans like Ronaldo and share highlights.
- Compare famous players and stats and ratings.
- Player transfers and life, cars, etc!
- For some sports like baseball, you can even share tips on how to play and the best equipment.
Once you start to gain followers and views, you can recommend products as an affiliate marketer. Or maybe create your own merch and sell!
TIP: With the sports niche, you will want to edit your TikToks on the PC or Mac. But having a powerful phone like the S22 Ultra or iPhone 13 Pro might do the trick!
2. Live Streaming Games
Twitch is the KING of live streaming games! But TikTok is here to take out the market share of such platforms bit by bit!
Today, you can live stream on TikTok off your PC using the streams lab feature. How cool! Here is my favorite TikTok that explains this in just 42 seconds!
Well, when it comes to streaming games, you will be spoiled for choice. There are so many games and gaming sub-niches to consider!
What you want to do is a search for the most popular or trending titles. Then make the best TikTok live streams for that sub-niche!
Soon, you will be going viral as the best TikToker for that game. Share your best tips, tricks, and insights on how to play it like a pro!
Once you have started to gain some followers and views, you can recommend your best gaming PCs, consoles, tools, and accessories and where to get them, and make money as an affiliate marketer through your link in bio!
All these without showing your face. Of course, you will need to talk. Sometimes, you might need to unbox these accessories, and here comes the other idea!
3. Unboxing and Product Reviews
When I want to buy a product or tool, I search it on Google and find tutorials on YouTube. But TikTok is taking out this “search engine” market share!
NOTE: Technically, TikTok is not a search engine, but there are so many videos and tutorials which makes it a hub of wonderful and resourceful content. So, you can search for such content from the platform just like YouTube!
Some Gen Z’s and even millennials are using TikTok like a search engine. That’s the way you search Google! Not because they aren’t aware of Google, but because they want real-life “results” from real people’s experiences!
Such that, you will find them searching terms like “best keyboard for phone” or “iPhone 12 vs iPhone 13” on the TikTok search bar.
That gives you some great TikTok content ideas to go faceless and go viral. You can do product reviews, comparisons, or even product unboxing, how to use them, and where to get them.
A great example is this TikTok video by Samir Elyousfi. They don’t show a face. Nor do they even talk. But it has over 26 million views and 1.4 million likes.
TIP: You don’t need to go for the expensive stuff. In fact, you can do TikToks for affordable products like scented candles, TikTok lights, and even the stuff that you already own!
4. Travel TikTok with No Face
If you like traveling, you should be on TikTok gaining views and building a following and fans. And you don’t have to show your face!
One thing about the travel niche is that almost every person likes to travel. Humans, like every other animal, were made to move.
Only that technology and options have allowed us to stay in the same place for hours, days, weeks, and even months without moving! Well, they call it sedentary life and it’s not good!
With the travel niche, you have so many options in terms of what to do. There are so many TikTok content ideas without showing face for the travel niche, including:
- Create city guide TikToks for different cities and towns
- Review the best restaurants and joints in these cities and towns.
- Make transition series TikToks from buying flight tickets, leaving your house, navigating the airport, boarding the plane, and reaching the AirBnB of your destination.
- Share hidden locations in different cities and towns and villages.
- To make money, you can do product reviews of your favorite travel gear, including the equipment you use for your TikToks.
In fact, you don’t need to travel, you can opt to share travel tips. Such as airport tips, holiday tips, or maybe staycation ideas around your town and build yourself from there. Then start traveling!
TIP: During my first time traveling by air, I was worried about how to buy a flight ticket, go through the airport, to boarding the flight, and so on. But I found a YouTube, faceless, video that showcased this for that specific airport!
5. Backpacking and Hiking Adventure
Traveling is one way to go faceless on TikTok while on the move! The other wonderful way is to start backpacking, hiking, and climbing.
With hiking and backpacking, you can do it on a budget. And it’s fun if you already enjoy hiking and backpacking.
All you need is a good TikTok phone like the S22 Ultra. I recommend getting a solid case or cover for such an expensive phone.
But if you want to take things a notch higher you can get a good camera like the GoPro Hero 9 Black. Or get a drone for a bird’s eye view of your hiking trail!
With hiking and backpacking, some great TikTok content ideas without showing face include:
- Just walking along your hiking trail with your camera showing the world your amazing views. Like the above TikTok by Avery!
- Take high-quality shots and slow-motion videos of your magnificent views, then put up a really great TikTok of under 30 seconds.

6. Making Art and Crafts, Like Knitting
The universe is so beautiful that the guys who don’t want to show their faces on social media possess some really cool creative skills. You too most likely have that skill you think is just a hobby!
But I tell you what, you can easily grow on TikTok and gain views by just showcasing the process you take to make your arts or crafts. Or by teaching how to do it to beginners with tips, hacks, and tricks!
During my research for this article, I found this really cool TikTok account that belongs to Sam Nygard. Here is their TikTok that teaches some cool knitting tips for mediocre knitters, as their caption says!
Like Sam, there are many other great faceless TikToks that have been made by some great artists and crafters with wonderful souls out there. Here is another great TikTok on knitting!

Like making arts and crafts, the drawing TikTok is a massive niche with so much potential. And the cool thing about it, you don’t need to show your face, or even talk unless you want to.
With drawing, there are so many sub-niches that you can consider. You can also choose to do it on a piece of paper or canvas or use a device like an iPad or tablet.
Here is a beautiful lips pencil drawing by Painting Power. They don’t show their face or even talk. They only focus on the art!
TIP: Some of the best TikTok content ideas without showing face for drawing is sharing “how to draw XYZ tutorials”. To best to it, you will need to talk as you showcase the drawing process.
That along with sharing drawing hacks, tips, and insights for that specific drawing niche. Later, once you start to gain views and followers, you can become an affiliate marketer by recommending drawing papers and pencils, etc!

Well, above is an example of a wonderful painting TikTok by Philip where he doesn’t show his face or talk. It has over 30 million views and 5.5 million likes!
9. Pet TikToks, Like Keeping Up with Your Pet
Like having a creative acumen, most guys who don’t like showing off their face on social media also most often like pets. It’s funny but true!
I also don’t like exposing my face out there, but I would sell everything I have, well except my laptop, to share my days with a labrador retriever as my companion!
But I have a few worthy excuses why I can’t have a labrador at the moment!
Including my urge to travel a lot, and I won’t want to hurt such a cool animal by leaving them alone for so long! Or by taking them to an in-home pet boarding every other week. It’s not decent!
Well, that little personal comment should tell you something. You can either choose to share how you live with your pet companion. Share tips, hacks, insights, and everything like keeping up with your fav pet.
The #PetTikTok is a big niche. For example, the above video by Otis the Lab has millions of views and over 14 million likes. Yet, they don’t show their face! They have put all the focus on their golden lab puppy. Yes, it had to be a labrador!
TIP: You don’t have to own a pet just yet, there are so many creative ways to share your insights, tips, and ideas that will be useful to current and potential pet owners. And you can opt to go for the cat or dog niches!
10. Gardening Ideas, Organic or Indoor
I know this doesn’t sound like a TikTok idea for most boomers and Gen X’s. Well, because they mostly equate TikTok and Instagram with the cool type of lifestyle with city living, and so on!
But there are so many millennials and Gen Z’s who are looking to reconnect with plants. In fact, statistics show they are now growing fond of indoor plants, not just pets!
Such that some are taking gardening as a hobby. Some are opting for organic gardening instead of feeding the now GMO foods that are linked to cancers and other “harmful” effects on the body!
As such, gardening is a niche with many TikTok content ideas without showing face. You can choose to start your own backyard garden or indoor garden, container garden, or even recommend the best indoor plants and so on!

Here is a wonderful TikTok by Renzo where they showcase their mini rabbit farm. It has over 1.7 million views and they don’t show their face nor talk!
The great thing about TikTok content ideas about chicken or rabbit farming is that you can opt to focus on your birds or bunnies. You don’t need to show your face, completely!
You can even set it such that the profile image is a chicken or a bunny! But I recommend you talk while sharing tips and insights instead of playing music. The world needs your voice when it comes to farming!
12. Join the Book TikTok as a Creator
So you thought the book is dead, huh! I’m here to disappoint you. The book is much alive, this time in paperback, softcopy, and audio formats.
Not just that! Readers, including me, are everywhere to consume these informative or entertaining books. TikTok is one place where creators are reducing some of the great books out there into “smaller, consumable” chunks!
During my research, I discovered that the book TikTok is mostly done by girls on TikTok who love books! Most are showing their faces, but there are some who choose to review books without showing faces!

17. Start a Cooking TikTok for Your Fav Recipes
