British parents are outraged over a new Barbie doll that sports a variety of tattoos, the Sun is reporting.

Totally Stylin’ Barbie and her friend Nikki come with 40 tattoo stickers and temporary “tattoos” for the girls who own them.


“What’s next? Drug Addict Barbie? Alcoholic Barbie?” asked an angry mother.

What’s next?  Why, Crystal Meth Barbie, that’s what.  She comes complete with a Mailbu Meth Lab and little meth pipes for herself and her owners.  Neato!

I wonder what Ken thinks about all this.

Most of the tattoos appear across the small of Barbie’s back, making them what’s known as “tramp stamps.”  You can probably insert your own joke here.

You know, Barbie is over 50 years old, and she should know better.  Even Cher covers up most of her tattoos these days.

The idea behind British Barbie’s tattoos might be to appeal to girls who like singer Amy Winehouse.  Brilliant!  THAT’S the kind of image you’d want your daughters playing with.
