Travis Barker has gotten inked once again.

The Blink-182 drummer, 48, shared pictures on Instagram on Friday, June 7, showing off his newest tattoo. The design appears to be a tribute to his growing family, including his 7-month-old son, Rocky Thirteen, with wife Kourtney Kardashian.

Barker’s latest ink is the word “FAMILY” in bold gothic lettering on the inside of his left arm, covering many other tattoos he already has. In the Instagram post — which he captioned, “No days off” — the musician also shared images of Blink-182, his luxury cars, his drum kit and broken drumsticks.

Barker, 48, has dozens of tattoos, including one of his late dog Blue and some ink he got in the same session as his daughter Alabama Barker.

The drummer takes great pride in his ink. He previously defended his “badass” collection of tattoos in December 2021 when a naysayer online called his body art “ridiculous.”

“When you get older, you are going to regret it," the person said.

Travis responded: "When I'm older I'm probably gonna hang out with other badass tattooed dudes and generally look awesome."

"What -

are you gonna do when you just look like every other old person?" he added.

Of his dozens of tattoos, many of them have sentimental meaning. In April 2022, Travis got inked to honor the late Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins, who died in March 2022.

Barker's wife has also inspired his body art. In January 2023, Travis had what appears to be Kardashian’s eyes inked onto his upper right thigh. He also previously called the Poosh founder his “favorite tattoo artist” in December 2021 when she wrote “I love you” on his arm.

The reality star, 45, got candid herself when asked about her favorite tattoos on her husband during a September 2022 appearance on Today. She said her favorites include “The Kourtney” and her lips, which she tattooed herself.

"I wrote 'I Love You' in cursive language and then I did it,” she recalled. “I put it on. I did the gun and did it. And then I practiced and did a 'K' with a heart. So there's a few."
