TikTok supports native emojis on all platforms which can be inserted with the system-wide emoji keyboard. Some commonly used emojis in comments TikTok include:
- 🪑 Chair: used on TikTok as a placeholder with no single meaning. One use is implied to be sexual, other times simply to create confusion or to fill space. New in September 2021.
- ✨ Sparkles: emphasis on a point, sometimes used for sarcasm or mocking. May be used as an alternative to italics.
- 🤡 Clown Face: describing someone selfish or unintelligent
- 🎂 Birthday Cake: alternative to 🍑 Peach when referring to buttocks (eg 'nice 🎂')
- 💀 Skull: figurative 'I'm dead' (I found this very funny, an alternative to 😂 Face with Tears of Joy)
- 👁👄👁: I am observing and somewhat engrossed in this content
- 🧍 Person Standing: Standing awkwardly. "I don't know what I just watched" and/or mimicking a passer-by in a video
- 🥺👉👈: Shy or bashful; available as a hidden TikTok emote using the shortcode [wronged]
Hidden TikTok Emojis
These 'secret' TikTok emoji codes work on both iOS and Android versions of the TikTok app, appearing as a shortname wrapped in square brackets. For example typing [loveface] inserts a custom emoticon which looks similar to the 😍 Smiling Face With Heart-Eyes emoji.

Unlike native system emojis which appear with designs from Apple, Google or Microsoft (depending on the platform being used), TikTok's hidden emoji list uses the same visual style on all operating systems, from all manufacturers.
