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.
4. Tiny tattoos.
"They are hard to tattoo and will often bleed out and look bad. People don't get that."
5. Watercolor tattoos.
"Watercolor tattoos. I never really cared for them, and I don’t see them aging very well either."
6. Wrist tattoos with inspirational words.
"Most notably 'Faith' or 'Just breathe.'"
"Especially anchors with the caption, 'I refuse to sink.' ANCHORS ARE LITERALLY SUPPOSED TO SINK, THAT'S THEIR JOB!!!"
8. Roman numerals on the collarbone.
9. Shawn Mendes' butterfly tattoo.
"I keep seeing that Shawn Mendes butterfly tattoo everywhere — even my younger cousin has it!"
10. Ring tattoos on the ring finger.
11. Latitude and longitude coordinates.
12. Scattered placement in general.
"A bunch of random tiny tattoos together on a single part of your body (like Miley Cyrus has) just looks like utter chaos. And they never have a theme or category."
13. Dream catchers.
"It seems like everyone has a lion these days and I’m like, why? Are you a Lannister? A Leo?"
15. Under-boob placement.
"The under-boob tattoo is the tramp stamp of the 2010s."
16. Disney tattoos.
17. Giraffes that spell out "Stand tall."
18. White ink tattoos in general.
19. The quote "Nothing gold can stay."
"A weird number of millennial girls got 'Nothing gold can stay' tattoos. I've even asked a couple of them if they were Robert Frost fans and they didn't know who he was."
"Because 'you have to be held back before you can move forward.'"
21. Anything on the side of a finger.
"I know the little mustache and the 'shh' were popular for a while, and they just seemed so stupid to me."
"The dandelion blowing and turning into birds, and same with the feather. Or just the dandelion blowing normally. I thought they were cool the first time I saw them, but now they’re way too common."
23. Pocket watches.
24. Infinity signs.
