Barbie Gets a Tramp Stamp

Now, if little girls want to be just like Barbie ... they can just get a tattoo!

Barbie celebrates her 50th birthday next week, so maybe it's just a midlife crisis, or she had one too many white wine spritzers. In any event -- Barbie got inked.

Her new "Totally Stylin' Tattoos" comes with tattoo stickers girls can stick anywhere -- and we do mean anywhere -- on the plastic icon's impossibly-shaped body. And that's not all, kids! The set also comes with a tattoo gun so girls can give themselves (washable) tattoos. Will "Tattoo Removal Artist Barbie" be hitting shelves next year?

Despite some controversy, the doll appears to be hit. As of now, Mattel says it has no plans to discontinue the doll -- like it was forced to do back in 2002 with Midge, Barbie's pregnant friend who had a pop-off tummy revealing a little plastic infant.

Controversy is nothing new to Barbie. Just yesterday, a West Virginia lawmaker introduced the so-called "Barbie Ban Bill" that would ban sales of the doll. "I just hate the image that we give to our kids that if you're beautiful, you're beautiful and you don't have to be smart," said state Democratic Delegate Jeff Eldridge.

Are dolls like Barbie a bad influence on young girls ... or is this no big whoop?

What a great blog. I spend days on the internet reading blogs, about tons of different subjects. I have to first of all give kudos to whoever created your website and second of all to you for writing what i can only describe as an amazing post. I honestly believe there is a skill to writing articles that only a few posses and frankly you have it. The combination of informative and quality content is definitely extremely rare with the large amount of blogs on the internet.

Whenever you hear the consensus of scientists agrees on something or other, reach for your wallet, because you’re being had.

Am i allowed to have a bit of advice? I do think you have had something good over here. Yet imagine if you provided a couple references to a page that supports what you are you said? Or perhaps you may provide us with something to look at, whatever might connect what exactly you’re mentioning, something concrete?
