On Sunday, X Factor judge and Disney Channel alumna Demi Lovato got a series of new tattoos courtesy of Dita Von Teese wannabe Kat Von D.

But when it comes down to it, they're nothing more than this decade's favorite tattoo abomination, as ubiquitous as tramp stamps.
Over the last few years, we've seen them flying out of — and sometimes into — chests, backs, and, of course, crotches.
