Lil Pump Inspires Son of Drummer Travis Barker to Want to Get a Face Tattoo
Lil Pump's impact on the youth is bigger than many think, and it looks like he has celebrity's kids within his cult fan base. After performing at his son Landon's birthday party last year, Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker says that Pump has inspired his child to get a face tattoo.
"My son's 14 and he asks me every day," Travis states. "Yeah, but there's an obsession with kids and face tattoos now. Yeah, every rapper and you know...Lil Pump played his birthday party. He's a friend of Landon's. No face tattoos yet. I don't know there was like this danger about it when I was a kid, like I was 15 with tattoos, but it wasn't easy to remove them. And it really said something if you were walking around with tattoos. It was a job stopper. For me, I did it so I never had to get a normal job, but I explain to them you have to have the same hustle I did."
He says that particularly, Landon wants a face tattoo thanks to Pump, but won't allow him to get one until he has hard work that can match.
"He would love face tattoos. Yeah, he would love it, but I tell him, 'Until you've walked in my shoes and you're ready to hustle like dad did, you can't get face tattoos.'"
Barker also says that his son's music taste is geared more towards hip-hop than any other genre, and has even been working on music of his own. He says that Landon was even in the studio with Pump's producer, Bighead.
"You know, we were just in the studio with Bighead, his producer, and he's really great. But yeah, Landon has a song out right now called 'I Don't Need Her,' but he loves rap music. He's been obsessed with rap music since he was a kid. He did a couple of hip-hop tours with me. He loves it."
