Growing up, many of us played with dolls. However, the time period you were born in greatly determined which kinds of dolls you played with. For example, as a child of the 1990s, I grew up playing with Barbie dolls. I can even remember being gifted a collectible Cruella de Vil Barbie that, much to my mom's horror, I tried to give a haircut. However, my sister was born just a few years later and she fell into the Bratz doll demographic. I truly never got over their removable feet. Now, I'm sure kids have plenty of other dolls that I've never heard of.

Take a look at 55 tattoos inspired by dolls of the past present and future, then let us know your favorite doll on this list (and if it makes you feel old AF) in the comments section on social media.
