Apparently, some parents are up in arms about the fact that this version of the doll has quite a lot of permanent ink on her neck and shoulder.
I consider this to be much ado about nothing.
Barbie has been tarting it up for years.
WHERE HAVE THESE PARENTS BEEN?!
This latest Tattoo Barbie is NOTHING compared to some of the dolls Mattel has released over the last 20 years. Yes, some have been created for adult collectors, but not all of them.

Then tell me what you think of Tattoo Barbie in the comments!
Slap a designer label on a slutty Barbie doll and that makes it okay, hmm? This Christian Louboutin-designed Barbie will set you back $150. Now that's a lot of allowance money!
I still fondly remember the days when My Bling Bling Barbie could be found on the Toys R Us shelves. And she was no collector's doll -- this was Barbie's answer to Bratz. Fortunately, no one bought into Barbie's 'bling.' I saw the doll on the clearance shelves not long after it had come out, and even then, no one was buying.
I believe the makers of the 'Highland Fling Barbie' misinterpreted the meaning of 'Highland Fling.' IT'S A FOLK DANCE, PEOPLE. Not an affair that took place in Scotland!!
Mattel is no longer offering its Lingerie Barbie on the Barbie Collector website, but don't worry! You can still put it under the tree for your little girl by buying it off Amazon for just $99.94!
I don't remember Little Red Riding Hood wearing a miniskirt and fishnet stockings in my childhood storybooks, but that's exactly how Barbie interpreted her ...
And if you're dead set on tattoos, Totally Stylin' Tattoos Barbie is still available on Amazon for just $17.99! Tattoo her wherever you want. Just leave me out of it.
