If for some reason you haven’t kept up with Blink-182, its excellent drummer Travis Barker, or ever seen the “What’s My Age Again?” video, just know that Barker is very into tattoos. And not just in the way many people are into getting ink here and there: The 45-year-old’s tattoos (covering approximately 70 percent of his body, he told GQ) form a mystifying puzzle straight out of a Dan Brown novel. He doesn’t seem to be slowing down. He’s now back in the spotlight, dating Kourtney Kim Kardashian , and producing for stars (including Lil Nas ), Barker) has had new ink applied, and yes, Kourtney is involved Barker’s tattoos offer fascinating insight. Barker wrote that tattoos are “all memories” in his autobiography Can You Say HTML1. “They’re all experiences that I had.” We can’t explain them all here (can anyone?) Here’s a list of the most important Barker tattoos.

“Can I Say”

This one is fairly self-explanatory. Also the title of his 2015 autobiography, it’s a personal motto of sorts. Barker doesn’t hold back in the book, opening up about his plane crash, the period when Blink-182 was broken up, and drug and sex addiction. This dude has seen a lot.

One of Barker’s most easily spotted and long-running tattoos is the race flag pattern on his neck. According to , it’s a thing. He said that the race flag on Barker’s neck is a symbol for his favorite Cadillac year. It’s hard to say if it is, but it does look cool.

“Cadillac”

We can confirm Barker’s favorite car brand: He has a giant “Cadillac” adorning the side of his torso. The drummer owns a valuable Caddy collection ..

Boombox-ed abs

Barker’s abdomen looks impressive even without ink. However, it’s difficult to miss the large boombox at its center with an angelic winged woman rising from it. The “ghetto blaster”, or “ghetto blaster”, has been a trademark of Barker’s over the years. Barker said that he’s seen countless people imitate it on their bodies.

“Self Made”

Barker wants you to know he’s come up from lesser means, and his fingers on both hands display this: “SELF” on one hand, “MADE” on the other. Blink-182’s record sales can confirm that he is indeed made.

Family dedication

Barker’s 2008 plane crash left much of his body with third-degree burns. He had some tattoos removed during skin grafting and wanted more. He immediately had his family inked on the back of his back. This is quite heartwarming.

Transplants gas mask

This somewhat terrifying gas mask on Barker’s head is an emblem of the punk supergroup the Transplants, which he joined in 2002 as drummer.

Alabama and Landon

Barker reveals where his heart truly lies in his ink. Barker, along with his ex-wife Shanna Molakler, had the names of his children Alabama (and Landon) tattooed in intricate script on each arm.

“Don’t Trust Anyone”

Even with all the affection his body shows, Barker can still be shady. He had a reality TV show. It’s part and parcel of the business. He added another tattoo to his collection this year. It reads “Don’t Trust Anyone.” The New York Post ‘s Page 6 speculates it may be a dig at Moakler. Although speculation is possible, Barker clearly cares about his enemies.

Possible revenge skull tattoo

This one is easier to understand. Barker’s skull now has replaced initials that represent him and Moakler during their time together. It’s a skull. Moakler claims that it was done “with purpose and intent along side posts to try and insult me and my happiness and my new man.” Barker ink is purposeful, intentional, and sometimes vengeful.

“I Love You” from Kourtney Kardashian

If your body is covered in tattoos (some Barker admits aren’t perfect), then it’s likely that you’ll be inked tribute to your partner when you’re in a serious relationship. Barker and Kourtney Kardashian are the Kardashians’ true wildcard. Barker had already got a tattoo of Kourtney Kardashian’s name on the chest, near his nipple. Kourtney then took over the role as tattoo artist and added a sweet “I love You” to Barker’s wrist.
