    Travis Barker Replied To Someone Who Said His Tattoos Look "Ridiculous" And It's Amazing

    People still criticizing tattoos in 2021??

    Alright, you probably know Travis Barker as one heavily tattooed man. Well, on Friday, Travis posted this fire pic of himself on Instagram:

    And someone decided to criticize his tattoos in a very rude way:

    The tattoos really look ridiculous, Travis. When you get older, you are going to regret it

    Not someone trying to criticize 46-year-old pop-punk icon Travis Barker like he's a teenager in the suburbs. 

    "The tattoos really look ridiculous, Travis," the person wrote. "When you get older, you are going to regret it."

    Travis decided to reply to the commenter, writing, "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 look like every other old person?"

    Like, honestly, though, his tattoos are sick.

    And even if they weren't to our taste, it's quite frankly none of our business to comment on them!!!

    Travis previously explained his philosophy on getting tattoos back in 2016, telling GQ, "For me it's documenting part of my life or people, things, times in my life. When I'm dead and gone I want people to be able to look at my body and basically relive my life in some ways."

    When specifically asked about the idea of tattoo regret, he said, "It's all memories...I don't care if I have nice, shiny tattoos. Mine all tell a story and make up who I am."

    In short, get whatever the hell you want on your body.
