“Getting inked together creates a bond like no other,” he said. “That’s what this collection is all about.”

Travis Barker is the latest celebrity to team up with Inkbox, the temporary tattoo brand known for its authentic-looking, semi-permanent ink.
Long recognized as one of the most influential celebrities in the tattoo world, Barker’s collection is fans’ first (and, realistically, only) chance to get inked by the drummer. Made with cruelty-free ink, the tattoos last one to two weeks, and while they look just like the real thing, they actually require zero commitment.
“Getting inked together creates a bond like no other, that’s what this collection is all about,” Barker said in a press statement. The very personal collection was designed by Barker in collaboration with longtime friend and tattoo artist Chuey Quintanar, with the tattoos telling a story about love, family and loyalty. “We wanted to create pieces that felt authentic to my story, but that would become part of [the fans’] stories as well.”
The 10-piece collection features designs that Barker feels are quintessential to every person’s tattoo experience. Sacred hearts, cherubs, roses and skulls headline the assortment that ranges in size from small and dainty inkwork to extra-large statement pieces.
Barker was initially introduced to Inkbox through his son, Landon Barker, who had been a fan long before the collab was in the works. “My son actually showed me Inkbox tattoos a while back, so to create my own collection from the ground up with Chuey … it’s a real full-circle moment.”
TRAVIS BARKER x INKBOX has officially launched on Inkbox’s site for fans to explore and get inked easily at home. This collab is the latest for the brand, which has previously worked with BTS, Post Malone, Gorillaz and more.
