Just it case, here's my reasoning for renaming this tattoo from "MiniFigurine Tattoo" to "Minifigure Tattoo": First off, tattoos are not named in-game (they have no alt text on the tattoo management page either), so they are named here as best guesses. Our hint for this one includes pretty much just its image, minifig.gif, which seems to imply "Miniature Figurine Tattoo", but when considering that BRICKOs parodying LEGOs and the content of the image, minifig is short for a Lego Minifigure. I have not seen them called Minifigurines anywhere [1][2], and the capital F in MiniFigurine was driving me nuts, seriously ;). So in my opinion, "Minifigure Tattoo" was the best option, and "BRICKO Minifigure Tattoo" seemed overkill. We'll, unless someone else has a more reasonable name than that. --JRSiebz (|§|) 05:34, 4 February 2010 (UTC)

LEGO people (of this sort) are typically just called "minifigs" in my experience. I'd be okay with reducing the name to that, and it matches the image name exactly. One could add a note saying that The manufacturer would prefer for you to refer to it as a "BRICKO™ Brand Funucational Miniature Figurine Tattoo," but there's just no way that's gonna happen. --Club (#66669) (Talk) 05:50, 4 February 2010 (UTC)
