Landon Barker, the 19-year-old son of renowned drummer Travis Barker, recently revealed his latest tattoo, which turned out to be a hyper-realistic depiction of his girlfriend Charli D’Amelio’s eye.
In an exclusive interview with PEOPLE, the 19-year-old TikTok personality shared that the tattoo resulted from a playful game of rock, paper, scissors. According to D’Amelio, the tattoo idea arose when Barker mentioned his plan to get a new tattoo the following day.
“He was like, ‘I have to get a tattoo tomorrow. What should I get?’ And I was like, ‘Oh my goodness, you should get my face,’” D’Amelio tells PEOPLE at the Tamagotchi Uni Launch Party in New York City. “He was like, ‘Really? I’ll do it.’ I was like, ‘Rock, paper, scissors,’ and I won.”
Despite her victory, D’Amelio admits she didn’t expect Barker to do it. So, when Barker informed her that he was getting the tattoo, she was taken aback.
“I run to Dixie [D’Amelio] like, ‘He’s getting it. We need to go right now,'” D’Amelio recounted. “So she drives me to his dad’s studio where he’s getting the tattoo, and we walk in, and he’s getting it. My only thought was, ‘You must tell my dad that you just got this.’ But my parents thought it was cool, and so did his.”
When Barker initially shared a picture of his new tattoo on Instagram, it was difficult to determine whose eye it was. However, upon closer inspection, it became evident that the tattoo artist had skillfully captured D’Amelio’s eye from a reference photo.
“It looks like my eye, which is crazy. But I think it’s so cool,” D’Amelio expressed with amazement.
The unexpected turn of events has added a unique symbol of their relationship to Barker’s body art collection, permanently etching D’Amelio’s eye as a testament to their connection.
