In my March 18th post, I mentioned my Barbie tattoo and last night someone sent me an e-mail asking if I really have one. Yep, I do. I always wanted a tat, but it took me until I was 42 years old to get one.
I had started collecting Barbie a few years before. When I started to really look at the original 1959 logo, that's when it hit me to get the tat.
I have had over a thousand Barbie's, mint in the box, but I began selling them a couple years ago. I still have quite a few left, some that I will never part with. I'd guess I still have 200-300 hundred left.
Her white pearls have faded, they need touching up, and her red lips could use some new ink, but her hair has stayed Barbie Blond. And no, I won't be putting Ken on the other ankle.
