Travis Barker gets a tattoo to honor son Rocky

It was only a matter of time.

Travis Barker is covered in tattoos from head to toe, and with many of his designs honoring family members, it comes as no surprise that he honored his newborn son with Kourtney Kardashian.

The Blink 182 drummer, 48, posted a photo on Snapchat that showed a table covered with tattoo supplies including a razor and soap-and-water mixture, with a small stencil reading “Rocky” in an elaborate swirly font.

Although he hasn’t yet shown off a picture of the finished design and where it’s located, Rocky’s name joins Barker’s collection of more than 100 tattoos, including several pieces dedicated to Kardashian, 44.

He debuted a huge tattoo of her eyes on his thigh in 2023 and got her name inked on his chest in 2021, even letting his then-girlfriend tattoo a “K” with a heart and the words “I love you” on his body by herself.

Alabama Barker posted a picture of her dad getting a tattoo earlier this month.

Along with his latest outing to the tattoo parlor, Barker was joined by his 18-year-old daughter, Alabama Barker — his youngest child with ex-wife Shanna Moakler — for another ink session in early January as he had an old “Self Made” design refreshed.

The influencer shared a snapshot of her dad giving the camera a peace sign on Instagram that read “tatted together” as she flashed her own manicured fingers in the same gesture.

Alabama ended up getting the Stevie Wonder song title “Isn’t She Lovely” inked on the side of her hand, revealing that she “was rocked as a baby to that song almost every night.”

The rocker and his wife welcomed baby Rocky — their first child together — in November 2023, adding to their large blended family.

In addition to Alabama, Travis shares a 20-year-old son, Landon, as well as a 24-year-old stepdaughter, Atiana De La Hoya, with Moakler, and the Poosh founder co-parents Mason, 14, Penelope, 11 and Reign Disick, 9, with her ex-boyfriend, Scott Disick.

We have a feeling there will be plenty more Rocky-themed ink to come, although this tatted-up star might be running out of real estate.
