1: No Directive

The first thought that came to my mind with Project 54 was to show Barbie without tattoos and then with them. Even in 2012, tattoos get mixed reviews. My idea was to show “perfect” and “flawless” Barbie with tattoos. She’s still the same but for some that would remove all of her appeal and she would no longer be the ideal. Also, I wanted to show Barbie with some individuality. Just by adding the temporary tattoos (which worked surprisingly well on her plastic skin) she looks different than all the other barbies on the shelf.
