• Even Barbie got tattooed. In 2011 Mattel was roundly criticised when it launched “Totally Tattoo Barbie” who came with a set of temporary tattoos. This was the same year Jobcentre staff were informed they could use public money towards tattoo removal if it was preventing a jobseeker finding work.
I'm not old (my youngest child is currently 9) and I don't live in a bubble. I teach at a college in an urban neighborhood, and I'm surrounded by students and street kids who are inked and pierced. I don't mind. I wrote my review mainly because I was so amused by the cognitive dissonance I experienced when I first encountered this product. It made manifest the irreconcilable differences between squeaky-clean Barbie and tattooed hipsters. The contrast reminded me of the unauthorized Barbies and Kens I've seen, dolls dressed, accessorized, and otherwise altered in order to subvert the perfect image that Mattel has constructed around the entire franchise.
