Released in April of 2009. How in the heck did I miss this???


From Wikipedia:
In April 2009, the launch of a "Totally Tattoos" Barbie with a range of tattoos that could be applied to the doll, including a so-called tramp stamp, led to controversy. Mattel's promotional material read "Customize the fashions and apply the fun temporary tattoos on you too", but Ed Mayo, chief executive of Consumer Focus, argued that children might want to get tattooed themselves.

I totally dig the branding/scarring work Barbie had done, professing her love for INDONESIA.

What I also love about this picture is you can see how crappy the quality is of the clothing. And, they are expensive!!

Nah, "Mistress Barbie and her slaves of pain" will be where it's at. Can't wait to see how Ken looks with a ball-gag ...

After the keloid scarification above it, I can't see why anyone is upset by the tattoo.

Wait!! How could we have missed it!! The tattoo is a subterfuge.

Barbie is a Boardgame Geek!! And of course, a Splotter fan!! Why else would she advertise Indonesia?

I tip my hat to the dom who did the scarring. Not a single wrong mark. But a tramp stamp barbie? Wow. They could at least use some good ink.
