Travis Barker launches skull-themed jewelry and home decor

Travis Barker is getting fans ready for “The Rock Show” with his edgy new jewelry, fashion and home decor line.

The former Blink-182 drummer and current Kourtney Kardashian fiancé debuted his skull-themed collaboration with British brand Buster + Punch on Wednesday.

The famed musician — who most recently has been playing backup for TikTok stars including Chase “LilHuddy” Hudson and Jxdn as well as for friend and frequent double dating partner Machine Gun Kelly — opened up about the inspiration behind the designs in a press release.

“I’ve been obsessed with skulls forever, from the first time I saw artists like Pushead, who put skulls on the Misfits and Metallica albums and Zero skateboards back in the day,” the 46-year-old star said.

“I’ve always loved them, they scream rock ’n’ roll, they scream danger and poison. Skulls stand against everything, so to present them in a way like this and take it to a new level is special.”

The collab is currently available to shop online at Buster + Punch. Items include a brass table light for $590 (complete with a skull pull cord, of course), skull candle holders for $195 each (perfect for a punk rock double dinner date) and even skull cabinet knobs for $75.

If you’re not interested in turning your home into a Hot Topic, there’s also the option to purchase a $59 T-shirt or $129 sweatshirt, complete with (you guessed it) skull graphics.

And don’t worry, everything won’t fall to pieces; according to the London-based brand’s site, items are made from solid cast metal and finished by hand to ensure high quality.

“Travis and I have poured our blood, sweat and styles into this collaboration,” Buster + Punch’s founder and creative director, Massimo Buster Minale, said in a statement. “The range grew from a beautiful sketch Travis made of a drum key and ended up as a statement of design today – unexpected, functional, fluid and, most importantly, impossible to pigeonhole.”

Barker is a true entrepreneur, much like his Poosh-founder girlfriend. He’s behind Barker Wellness Co., which makes vegan, THC-free cannabinoid wellness products, and he’s an investor in the Los Angeles hot spot Crossroads Kitchen, a favorite with fellow celebrities. Plus, he co-owns the clothing company DTA, which is also the name of his record label.

In an Instagram interview for Buster + Punch, Barker explained that becoming a designer felt like a logical next step, but acknowledge his aesthetic isn’t for everyone.

“My personality is so loud — love me or hate me,” the alt-rocker said.

This isn’t the first time Barker has displayed his jewelry design abilities. When the pop-punk superstar popped the question to Kourtney in October, he proposed with a one-of-a-kind engagement ring by jeweler to the stars Lorraine Schwartz, who called him “a really big part” of the design process.
