"The under-boob tattoo is the tramp stamp of the 2010s."

With the end of the decade approaching, we decided to ask the BuzzFeed Community which tattoos were WAAAAAAAAAY too overdone in the 2010s. Here's what they said:

1. The Deathly Hallows symbol.

2. Forest outlines.

"White men LOVE to get that forest tattoo around their wrists/calves/ankles. It’s the modern-day equivalent of the tribal tattoo."

3. Inner lip tattoos.
