Controversial Tattooed Barbie Is About As ‘Scary’ As Avril

Mattel has teamed up with Tokidoki to make an alternative Barbie who sports a pink bob, a skull shirt and TATTOOS.

Parents and bloggers – who happen to be uptight Tea Party types – are outraged at the very thought of a tatted-up Barbie. Like, how dare she ruin the lovely reputation of this classic doll, who first appeared back in 1959!?

Barbie was like an early version of tabloids, music videos and movies, something to remind us of what we can never be.

And don’t forget, they already made one called “Totally Stylin’ Tattoos Barbie” in 2009, which included applicable stickers for not only the doll but for its owner.

Don’t dolls and toys exist as an experiment of things we COULD do to ourselves, but wouldn’t necessarily do?

Like the time my friends and I took a Barbie’s head off and stuffed slugs inside of her right before burying her in the garden…

Did it make me want to decapitate a woman who is not made of plastic and shove slugs down her neck hole? (Naaa, that’s too much work)

I’d also like to point out the fact that as a human, Barbie would roughly be about six feet tall and 40 pounds underweight, plus she’s “happily” married to a man who doesn’t mind driving a pink car.

Previous Barbie models that were considered “taboo” include:

Becky Share A Smile (1997) Oreo Fun (1997) and Video Girl Barbie (2010)

[Random fact: about one in four Americans have at least one tattoo]

  1. Sue Bee, you sound like an uptight tea party bitch, who has not been f***ed since the Boston tea party. Let those bats out and maybe the spider web can breath.
