Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker is repairing tattoos damaged by scar tissue during a fiery 2008 plane crash that claimed the lives of two of his friends.
Barker was flying out of South Carolina after a gig with DJ AM and two pals when the small plane they were passengers on failed to clear the runway and burst into flames.

The rocker and his late sidekick managed to escape the inferno, but the drummer suffered severe second and third degree burns, which destroyed some of his body art.

But now the star is going under the needle again to fix his beloved ink.

Leaving a tattoo parlour in Los Angeles on Tuesday, he told, “I started finishing some of the tattoos that got burned off.”
