KEY POINTS

  • It is Barker's second Kardashian-dedicated tattoo 
  • Barker reportedly treats Kardashian like a goddess
  • The duo confirmed their romance in February

Kourtney Kardashian has made her affection for Travis Barker a permanent fixture on the latter's arm by tattooing a bold proclamation of love on it. On Wednesday, the American musician stated in one of his Instagram stories that the reality star is the “best tattoo artist” he has ever met.

Barker shared a snap of his new ink on the photo-sharing app. The image featured the words “I love you” written in black-colored ink on his arm. This is Barker's second tattoo dedicated to the former “Keeping Up with The Kardashians” star.

The Blink-182 drummer, in April, shared a tattoo on his chest that reads “Kourtney” in cursive writing. There were also reports saying that Barker’s Audrey Hepburn tattoo is also dedicated to Kardashian, who idolizes the late British actress.

Barker also sent Kourtney an extravagant bouquet of roses during the Mother’s Day weekend. After that, they went to Amangiri, Utah, for a short vacation to celebrate Kardashian’s birthday.

An unnamed source told E! News that Barker wants to make “every day special” for Kardashian and that is why he always treats her like a goddess. "He is very into her and waited a long time to be able to show her how much he cares," the informant shared. "He wants to spend all of his time with her and is constantly telling her how much he loves her,” it went on.

For starters, Barker and Kardashian first sparked dating rumors in January after the song producer commented on an Instagram post by the Poosh founder with a rose emoji. An unidentified insider, then, told Us Weekly that the two have been dating for months already.

"Kourtney and Travis are officially a couple. They have been close friends for years and have been dating for a couple of months,” the tipster told the entertainment news publication. Travis is very smitten with Kourtney and has been for a while,” the outlet said.

Another insider revealed to People that Barker and Kardashian spent quality time together with the socialite's family in Palm Springs during the Easter weekend. The source added that the two have been friends for a very long time but their closeness turned into something romantic.

In February, Kardashian confirmed her relationship with Barker by sharing a romantic photo of them holding hands, while sitting inside a car. The two were seen on a date together at Japanese restaurant Matsusiha in Los Angeles a few days before making their relationship Instagram-official.
