28 Oct Plastic is Ok But Not Tattoos?
On the news this morning they were talking about the new collector’s edition Barbie, designed by Tokidoki, and all the outrage from parents because she has tattoos. Really?? Parents are concerned about tattoos? What about her unrealistic body shape, and only able to wear high heels? Huge boobs are ok, but adorning your body with art is not? Read some of these quotes from parents…
“It’s teaching kids to want tattoos before they are old enough to dress like that,” Kevin Buckner, of Virginia, told a local television station.
Take Tom Gurry of Rego Park, Queens. He told the NY Daily News, “Barbie’s supposed to be a role model for young girls, right? I don’t want my daughter looking up to someone like that.”
