Are millenials getting their face tattooed with the Bernie 2020 logo as a show of support? No, that's not true: the story was made up by a righ-leaning satire website, it is not true.
The story originated from an article published on March 8, 2019 titled "Millennials are getting the Bernie 2020 logo tattooed on their face as a brave show of support - NPC Daily" (archived here) which opened:
Unless you have the time, money and resources to remove them, tattoos are permanent. That's why it's always recommended to be absolutely sure before one gets a tattoo - because tattoos are forever. Given that, there is a new trend taking the nation by storm. Millennials are getting the Bernie 2020 campaign logo tattooed on their face to show their backing for Bernie Sanders.
This is a fantastic way of showing unconditional support for a candidate who has his heart and mind set on the making our country better. The trend started by Kyle Clark from SFSU. After donating the entirety of his paycheck to the Bernie Sanders 2020 campaign instead of paying rent that month, he used the tips he received that week as a barista at Chronos Coffeehouse to pay for the logo to be tattooed on his face.

We don't know who the people in the picture are but we found at least one of them via an article about beard hair styles for 2019 and he was not sporting a tattoo in the picture:
In addition to that the official Bernie Sanders website does not sport a specific 2020 logo yet:
Change will never come without political participation. Join Bernie Sanders and the political revolution today.
That is no wonder since the site NPC Daily has a satire disclaimer on its "about" page that reads:
NPC Daily is a satire site, providing political and cultural commentary with wanton sarcasm. NPC Daily pokes fun of modern journalism and liberalism. If you believe one of our articles is real, it's because the content is not too far adrift from what is published by mainstream news outlets. But, alas, our content is totally fictitious and is created to elicit laughs and bemusement.
The name of the site is a play on the NPC meme often used in certain right-wing circles to depict political opponents as mindless people who have fallen victim to groupthink and conformity.
NPC Wojak is a depiction of the MS Paint character Wojak with a blank stare and facial expression, named after non-player characters within video games. The character is meant to represent people who do not think for themselves and conform to society, bearing many similarities to the terms "basic" and "normie".
