Travis Barker, Blink-182 drummer and husband to The Kardashians star, Kourtney Kardashian, is embarking on a fresh entrepreneurial venture. 

Partnering with the popular temporary tattoo brand, Inkbox, Travis recently unveiled a collection of faux tattoos designed by himself.

On Wednesday, Travis gave his Instagram followers a sneak peek into this new endeavor. Posting a promotional video, he flaunted not just his collaboration with Inkbox, but also the vast array of authentic tattoos he has collected over the years. Notably, his body ink isn't just confined to his torso but extends to the top of his head.

The promotional video featured various models, each showcasing different designs from Travis' temporary tattoo collection.

He enthusiastically captioned the post: "After decades of getting tattooed, I finally designed my own tattoo collection with @inkbox. Art by @chueyquintanar #bondedbyink."

The announcement was met with a flurry of comments. While the majority showered praise and expressed eagerness to get their hands on the new collection, there were some who voiced skepticism.

Comments ranged from enthusiastic endorsements like "I love Inkbox. This is such a smart and awesome idea," to more skeptical remarks such as "Temporary tatts? What are we 5?"

It's not uncommon for celebrities to venture into the world of fashion, beauty, or lifestyle products, leveraging their brand. 

But Travis' decision to design a temporary tattoo line, given his association with authentic tattoos, is indeed unique.

The collaboration with Inkbox hints at the evolving tattoo culture, which now includes those who might love the art but are hesitant to make a lifelong commitment.

However, this venture comes at a time when Travis faces a mixed bag of public sentiment.

Recently, there's been a whirl of chatter about his behavior during Kourtney's pregnancy. 

Kourtney, who is currently expecting her fourth child and her first with Travis, is set to welcome the new addition to their family this fall.

Just days ago, the couple was seen enjoying a night out in Calabasas, California. They dined at the local Crossroads restaurant, where Kourtney confidently displayed her baby bump in a form-fitting white maxi dress. 

Travis, known for his rebellious streak, opted for a casual ensemble, wearing a T-shirt with swear words, paired with a long-sleeved shirt, black jeans, and a beanie.

This choice of attire garnered varied reactions on a well-known Kardashian internet forum. While some fans came to his defense, suggesting it's a typical look for a rockstar, others found it less appropriate. 

Comments spanned from the cheeky "Stay classy Calabasas" to the more understanding "Maybe Barker has that shirt on so paps can truly [expetive] off."

Nevertheless, amidst the fashion critique, many fans were full of praise for Kourtney's radiant look. 

Remarks such as "I love seeing her like this vs the pouty sexy pregnancy shoots" and "I think she looks good for being extremely pregnant" reflected the genuine admiration fans hold for her.
