The Kardashian-Jenner family are no strangers to an iconic clapback, thanks to all the top-tier burns dished out over the years - and it looks like new family member Travis Barker is officially joining the trend.

Travis has taken to Instagram to deliver an iconic comeback to a troll criticising his tattoos, and his response is spot on.

The Blink-182 drummer posted a pair of shirtless pictures showing his torso, neck and head tattoos (with his 'Kourtney' heart ink very much on show) along with a string of tattoo-themed emojis in the caption, reading '✝️🧛♀️⛓🙏🏼🌹🎵🩸'.

While most fans were *obsessed* with Travis' latest shoot, there were some comments from trolls criticising his tattoos, with one writing, 'The tattoos really look ridiculous, Travis. When you get older, you are going to regret it.'

Travis was quick to respond to the comment, and his message is pretty iconic. The 46-year-old wrote, 'When I’m older I’m probably gonna hang out with other badass tattooed dudes and generally look awesome. What are you gonna do when you just look like every other old person?'


Travis' comments were captured by Instagram account Comments By Celebs, though they no longer seem to be visible on his own page.

The musician has literally too many tattoos to count, though some of his latest additions include sweet tributes to fiancée Kourtney Kardashian. On top of his 'Kourtney' tattoo on the left side of his chest, Travis has 'You're so cool!' (a quote from Kravis' favourite film True Romance) on his thigh, with fans speculating that it was written in Kourt's handwriting.

Plus, Kourtney even tattooed the words 'I love you' herself on Travis' arm.

Wonder what the next one will be?
