Ongoing History Daily: Travis Barker’s tattoos, part 1

One of the most-inked guys in the world of music is Travis Barker of blink-182. The last time there was an official count, he has 117 tats and a lot of them have to do with Cadillacs. That, apparently, is his favourite make and model of car.

Not only does he collect the Cadillacs, but he has various tattoos expressing his love for the marque. The racing flag on his neck is related to his favourite tear of Caddy. He’s got a big Cadillac tat that runs all the way down his right side. There’s also a Cadillac emblem on the right side of his torso, which is models after something the brand had in 1947.

Oh, and there’s more. We’ll pick that up next time.
