Barbie gets a tattoo! Love it or Hate it? Leave your comments.

The newest Barbie doll is creating some controversy among parents.

The "Totally Stylin' Tattoos" Barbie was recently unveiled. The doll comes with a set of tattoo stickers which can be placed on Barbie's 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. Matell says the tattoos for kids are temporary and wash off.

But some parents say the toy maker has gone too far, attracting young kids to expose parts of their body to show off tattoos.

This isn't the first time Mattel's pushed the limits. A few years ago, Barbie's best friend, Midge, was pregnant and her belly would pop out a baby when it was opened. Complaints forced stores to stop selling the controversial doll in 2002.
