For those who weren’t alive or paying attention to music in 1998, there was a time when Travis Barker wasn’t completely covered in tattoos. The blink-182 drummer has since become known for his ink, but fans got a glimpse of what he used to look like courtesy of his daughter, Alabama Luella Barker, on Tuesday (Mar. 30.)
“Today, we are going…to cover up his face tattoos with KVD’s new product, Good Apple,” says Alabama, 15, at the start of her Instagram video. Even though Alabama is just covering up two tattoos – his “Blessed” and his Anchor — Travis Barker, 45, looks incredibly different once she’s all done.
Travis Barker was a patient model for his daughter during this little makeup tutorial — even though she mistook his Anchor for a handkerchief. Travis even fielded some tattoo questions, saying his first design was on his leg. As for his favorite tattoo? It’s the “Blessed” on his cheek, or as Travis put it, “Probably the one you just covered.” Alabama’s reaction to this was priceless.
Alabama is the youngest of Travis Barker’s two kids. He and his ex-wife Shanna Moakler also have a seventeen-year-old son, Landon Asher Barker. Travis and Shanna, 46, divorced in 2008. Since then, she’s had an on-again/off-again relationship with model Matthew Rondeau, per Page Six, while Travis has recently struck up a romance with longtime friend, Kourtney Kardashian.
