    I Have A Sneaking Suspicion That Travis Barker's New Tattoo Is In Honor Of Kourtney Kardashian, And Here's My Evidence

    This is a case for the FBI.

    Travis Barker posted a video of him tattooing himself, and it's led to some speculation regarding his relationship with Kourtney Kardashian.

    Now, the tattoo is definitely a reference to the 1993 Quentin Tarantino movie True Romance. I know this, for one, because Travis posted a quote from the movie alongside a picture of his tattoo.

    The quote was, "I like you, Clarence. Always have. Always will," in case you were wondering.

    However, I have a hypothesis that the tattoo is actually in honor of someone else: Kourtney Kardashian, aka Travis's new(ish) girlfriend.

    EXHIBIT A: Travis shared a photo of a napkin with "You're so cool" written on it, presumably the inspiration for the tattoo.

    The Beverly Ambassador Hotel is one of the locations in the movie.

    You know whose writing that looks an awful look like? Yup, Kourtney's. Behold, this love note she sent him:

    IMHO, they look mighty similar — especially the love hearts.

    Why yes, I have considered a career with the FBI.

    Kourtney even commented the line right back at him, which, at the very least, implies she's into the tattoo.

    EXHIBIT B: Kourtney shared a series of stills from True Romance back in January. This would have been early in the pair's relationship, and we all know that watching your beloved's fave movie is a key part of any courtship.

    What's more, Travis even commented on Kourtney's post with the line, "You're so cool" — cementing, at least in my mind, a clear link between the two.
