Blink 182 Drummer, Travis Barker, was in a deadly plane crash in September of 2008. The plane crash killed four people when the plane blew a tire on takeoff in South Carolina.

Travis, as shown above, has a body covered in tattoos. He was spotted at a LA Tattoo shop getting more work done to repair and replace some of his ink that was burned off from the crash.

“Where I got burned . . . I started finishing some of the tattoos that got burned off.”

Travis underwent 17 skin grafts. Although he still deals with the after effects, he doesn’t let it slow him down.

His brush with death was the reason for Blink 182 to reunite back in 2009. Blink is in the process of completing their first album in eight years. It’s expected to be out this fall.
