  • Seeing as how I'm generously tattooed, yes, I would totally buy that doll. My kid loves my "pictures", and so would probably love the doll.

  • I've got several tattoos of my own and my girls love temporary tattoos so I'd buy it if the girls were into Barbies. Unfortunately, the few dolls we have are all headless because they'd rather have Barbie zombie head wars with them...my girls are too tomboyish I guess. : D I don't see what the big deal is though.

  • No big deal. Barbie's an adult. If she wants tattoos, she can have them.

  • I do not have a tattoo, but kids put stickers on themselves, use temp tattoos and draw on themselves all the time. My kids even did it to their dolls and stuffed animals. No big deal. It's just a doll. Now, the Bratz Dolls, that's creepy.

  • Neither of my girls (9 and 14) like Barbie .......BUT if they did I would buy it! I have 7 tattoos and if they want one ....well.....when they are 18 and can pay for it, it's their choice!

  • I have no problem with it- my dd would probably love it. I always say she will end up with the full sleeve someday- she LOVES temporary tattoos and we have to limit the number she can wear at a time or she would cover herself. I have a tat myself (and am looking forward to another one!) and I really don't mind if Barbie gets a little ink too!
