(Newser) – A made-over Barbie has hit store shelves with her own tiny tats, and parents are livid, reports the Sun. "What's next? Drug Addict Barbie? Alcoholic Barbie?" asked an angry mom. The diminutive owners of the the Totally Stylin' Tattoo Barbie version of the 50-year-old babe will have a choice of over 40 tattoo stickers and a washable tattoo ink stamper that they can also use on themselves. Tattoos include, of course, cheery hearts, flowers and bunnies. Not very Amy Winehouse.
