16 Cute or Creepy Doll Tattoos

If your children are not going to play with a tattooed Barbie anytime soon because of some narrow-minded parents, some adults are actually sporting doll tattoos... Don't even think it is a "girlie" attitude: as you will see in our selection, many of doll tattoos have male owners... Dolls are truly special toys. With their appearance, close to the human body (sometimes to very nerve-racking extent), they can mislead the human's brain. Children are projecting emotions on their toys, associating them with living creatures, imaginary friends. They help them growing, communicating with others. But then, children abandon their favorite companions, broke them and the cute dolls start to look like creepy monsters... Haunted houses, in adults' imagination are full of damaged dolls, ready to come back to life by possession of demons or ghosts, and take their revenge for the careless owners we were. So, there are two reasons to get doll tattoos. The first one is a tribute to your childhood and a passion for dolls that have followed you until adulthood. Right now, many people are collecting dolls, creating them and customizing them (and also with tattoos!). On the second hand, you can get doll tattoos a little less innocent... Horror doll tattoos are expressing the loss of innocence, of illusions and the emotional gap between the sweet world of childhood and the evil ways of life. And, there is also a naughty side of dolls, the world of sex toys... So, what kind of adult with doll tattoos are you? Either nostalgic or cynic, open the inked toy box to see our selection of cute, creepy and even funny doll tattoos...
