Barbie has come a long way since she was first introduced 50 years ago.

With her latest style she is rocking the tattoos.  Yup, that’s right.  Tattoo Barbie.

The new “Totally Sylin Tattoos” Barbie has hit shelves just in time for spring and she’s already selling out in stores.  Mattel has just released “Totally Stylin’ Tattoo Nikki,” Barbie’s brunette version.

She comes with a set of tattoo stickers, which can be placed anywhere on her body.

The set also has a tattoo gun that’s similar to a water gun, so kids can stamp tattoos on her clothes and themselves.

Mattel says the tattoos for kids are temporary and wash off.

This is the second try for Mattel and the ‘Tattoo Barbie’ .  They released  “Butterfly Art Barbie” back in 1999.  She also came with tattoos for children and had a large butterfly tattoo covering her belly area.  She was pulled from shelves after four months of being on the market do to a large amount of complaints by parents.

Mattel says they have no plans to discontinue the doll saying she gives girls a chance to express themselves and be creative.
