Travis Barker has inked fiancée Kourtney Kardashian’s lips on his skin to cover up his ex-wife’s name.
The Blink 182 rocker became engaged to Kourtney, 41, earlier this month after a hopelessly romantic beach proposal, and the pair are now planning the rest of their lives together.
Now the talented drummer has got Kourtney’s lips tattooed on his skin, along with a giant scorpion, to cover up an old tattoo bearing the name of his ex-wife.
Travis, 45, has been married twice before, most recently to Shanna Moakler, a former Miss USA.
The couple have two children together, Landon, 17, and Alabama, 15, and Travis is step-dad to Shanna’s daughter from a previous relationship, Atiana, 22.
Travis had Shanna’s name inked on his inner arm but has now covered it up with a large black scorpion and a kiss from Kourtney.
His tattoo artist, Scott Campbell, shared the outline and the finished piece on his Instagram page and tagged Travis and Kourtney, writing: ‘Scorpio season. On @travisbarker.
‘Lips straight from the mouth of @kourtneykardash.’
He added: ‘Congrats you two.’
The newly engaged Travis replied to Scott’s post with emojis of a scorpion and a black heart, and later shared photos of his new ink to his personal Instagram page, along with a dramatic photoshoot showing off some of his other tattoos.
Echoing Scott’s post, he too wrote: ‘Scorpio season’.
It’s not the first tattoo Travis has got in dedication to his fiancée: in April, after just a few months of dating, the musician was spotted shirtless atop a tour bus in Hollywood, and eagle-eyed fans immediately noticed Kourtney’s name written in cursive on his chest.
And in May, the pair took it one step further as Kourtney even tattooed Travis herself, writing ‘I love you’ in a small message on his arm.
And for a first-timer let loose with a tattoo gun, it really wasn’t half bad.
Speculation that the couple were going to be engaged began flying around from then on, as Travis had previously only got two women’s names tattooed – ex-wives Melissa Kennedy and Shanna.
In 2015, the musician told Vice: ‘I actually only ever got the names of two girls tattooed – the ones I married. The Shanna tattoo is still there. I don’t know if I’m going to cover it up, but I’ve thought about it.’
Well, six years later and here we are.
Travis and Kourtney, who have duly been nicknamed Kravis, are completely loved-up as they plan their wedding, and in the past few weeks have been sharing blissful updates on social media.
Yesterday, Kourtney shared a series of saucy new snaps from the day Travis proposed, to mark one week since the couple became engaged.
In the pictures, Kourtney is posing topless on a bed of roses – but it is the enormous diamond engagement ring that captured the most attention.
It was recently revealed that Travis himself had a big say in the design of the ring, as he personally went to celebrity jeweler Lorraine Schwartz to ask her to help design it.
