Travis Barker Got a Tattoo Live on Kevin & Bean While Announcing Musink 2019

December 13, 2018

Earlier this week, Travis Barker stopped by The Kevin & Bean Show to announce the Musink 2019 lineup live on-air while casually getting a tattoo from world renowned tattoo artist, Chuey Quintanar. If you follow Travis, you know he's a big hip-hop fan and works on a lot of different projects besides his own. He decided to get a tribute tattoo for his close friend and hip-hop artist, XXXTension.

Travis also gave us a health update. He first walked us through the horrifying process of being stuck by a needle over 50 times while getting a routine MRI. That incident ultimately gave him a staph infection, blood clots in both arms, and forced Blink-182 to cancel their Las Vegas Residency at the Palms. He went on to tell Kevin & Bean that the clots are back in his right arm and he's on blood thinners to take care of the problem. "I just have to listen to the universe and respect what's being thrown at me," said Travis.
