Travis Barker has sat in the tattoo chair again when he gets a tattoo in memory of Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins.
The 50-year-old was found dead in his Bogota hotel room last month, leaving the music world stunned.
The official cause of death has not yet been determined.
And in a bid to honor his pal, Blink 182 drummer Travis, 46, got an image of a hawk tattooed on the underside of his leg.
He took to Instagram on Wednesday night to share his new artwork alongside the caption: “HAWK forever [hawk emoji]. Thanks @markmahoney_ssc”
When selecting the snaps, Travis lay in the chair while the tattoo artist worked on his left leg. Fiancee Kourtney Kardashian watches as the new black and white artwork is completed.
Another picture showed the couple enjoying a kiss while the job was done, before the final picture showed the finished shot sitting around his ankle.
Following news of Taylor’s death, Travis shared an emotional tribute.
Alongside a black and white photo of Taylor sitting back and forth on the floor with a big smile on her face, Travis wrote, “I’m at a loss for words. Sorry to write this or never see you again.
“I’ll never forget the days in Laguna Beach when I was a trash man and played in a punk rock band and you played with Alanis [Morissette].
“You would come to watch me play in bars and say, ‘Boy, you’re a star.’ And I thought you were crazy, but you gave me so much hope and determination.”
He went on to recall Blink-182 touring with Foo Fighters in Australia years later.
Travis continued, “I have fondest memories of smoking cigarettes in the toilets of flights we were on together and watching your set every night.
“To say that I will miss you, my friend, is not enough. Until next time we play drums and smoke in the boys room…
Travis is heavily tattooed, with his latest ink joining previous artwork, including the name of his future wife, Kourtney.
The tatt was first spotted in April last year when Travis posed topless and eagle-eyed fans spotted the POOSH founder’s name near his ear.
Also, early in their relationship, the 42-year-old reality TV star picked up the ink gun and tattooed “I love you” on her husband’s arm.
In the snaps, a piece of paper can be seen under the couple’s arms, covering Kourtney’s practice runs as she played around with the font she wanted.
