Apparently some parents are really upset by the first tattooed Barbie doll hitting the store shelves. I don’t really see what the big deal is, and, just for the record, this is not technically the world’s first tattooed Barbie doll. Ask any girl who had access to a black sharpie when she was growing up… Yeah, I had several “tattooed Barbie dolls” in my collection when I was young. I was quite the tattoo artist back then.
A few years ago, Totally Stylin’ Tattoos Barbie was released, but back then, she just came with tattoo stickers and a little plastic tattoo gun. Now it seems Barbie has taken it one step further, and she actually comes decorated in tattoos. I’m looking more at that pink bob she’s rockin. I really like that! Barbie is almost 53 years old; I think it’s about time she be able to express herself without worrying about what everyone else thinks. I’m all for it.
Just like I am as an adult, when I was a child, I was all about the Barbie shoes. My Barbies always had to have the best shoes. I would have freaked out to have a Barbie with kick ass glittery silver bug stompers like this! This Barbie, called the Tokidoki Barbie Doll, will be available for the first time on October 13th. If you would like to purchase one online at that time, you can go to Barbie Collector where they will be selling for 50 bucks.
