As goes Barbie, so goes the youth of America. The iconic doll has been given yet another makeover, and this time it involves pink hair, animal-print leggings, tattoos, and what seems to be a dog dressed as a cactus. The doll is a collaboration with Italian brand Tokidoki. The $50 Barbie is already sold out out on Tokidoki's website, but there are quite a few available on eBay.
Though there was an earlier Barbie who had tattoo "stickers" that could be taken on and off, Tokidoki Barbie is the first one with official ink.
