Growing up in the former east block, Barbie did not have such an impact on me, as it was not available to purchase, when I was a little girl.;)Thinking back, we had very simple toys then, and the best ones were the ones we made ourselves. At times I think children today would benefit from using their own imagination a bit more then the one that the commercialism forces upon them, such as Barbie tattoos.;)
Tattoos?! I'm rolling my eyes.
My sister's and I weren't allowed to have a Barbie because she had boobs....I seriously doubt if the tatoos would have helped the situation! ha-ha!
She looks just as great at fifty as she did at her premier. Lucky girl! Not being able to have a Barbie, when they were the rage, and all the other mothers were making wonderful Barbie wardrobes for their daughters, was difficult, I must admit. I was definitely considered the freak when I showed up to play, completely Barbie-less.Tatoos? Well, can't say I like them, but two of my three kids sport one.
No. I dislike tattoo on my body but I could like any smallest tatto on my ankle.
I have a green Koi fish (I'm a Pisces) on the inner part of my upper left biceps that I got in 1980 at a tattoo parlor on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood. I love the story and still love the ink that has now faded, but then it's not in a place where it shows all the time. I'd like to get another one some day but I can't decide where or what. I'm considering a butterfly, perhaps on the other arm. Maybe. For my next birthday, I just had one last week, when I turn 60.
I'm not a fan of tattoos myself, but both my children have a few small ones...sigh. My husband had long hair in the late 60's, and lots of concurrent fights with his Dad over that. I guess every generation wants something that makes them unique. At lesst hair can be cut, but tattoos are more or less for life!
A friend of mine got a tatoo for her 50th birthday. You just never know who has one. I always wanted one but I don't like pain so it is out for me. I never liked Barbie in the first place. I don't care what she does.
I'm not a tattoo fan at all. But Barbie is a big girl now.. she can do as she pleases. ;)
I can't say that I agree with Barbie having tatoos either. But I know little girls love the rub on tatoos. The times they are a changing. denise
Well, it looks like I am 'Totally Out of Touch Gramma.' I don't have problems with people who have tattoos. I think the point I was trying to make was is getting a tattoo an appropriate model of play for our children?
Well I was looking for something relatively mild but wild to celebrate my 50th birthday - and went and got a tattoo...with my kids and husband looking on!...now it seems everyone has one but it was a big deal 8 yrs ago lol! So Barbie is just copying me I guess:)
I was older than Barbie when I got my first tattoo! I suppose I wouldn't think anything of Barbie having tattoos - only because stick-on tattoo's and temperary tats have been on the market for children for years. But I know where you're coming from!
I'm glad you stopped by and I look forward to your comments. As Dr. Fraser Crane would say, "Hello, I'm listening."
