Travis Barker put his body artwork on display in a stylish set of black-and-white photographs for the release of his new jewelry collection.

The 47-year-old Blink-182 drummer and husband to Kourtney Kardashian posed shirtless in photos he posted to Instagram on Thursday in which he was decked out in gleaming items from his new collaboration with the punk- and heavy metal–inspired jewelry company Clocks + Colours.

Several of Travis’ new pieces appeared to be modeled on classic chains that looked as if they could have locked up a bike or served an industrial purpose. 

‘Designed some cool jewelry pieces with my friends @clocksandcolours ☠️⛓️,’ Travis captioned his post, adding safety pin, skull and chain emojis.

In one photo showing him from the waste up, Travis gazed dramatically off to the side while sporting a thick silver chain around his throat. 

He wore a similarly designed bracelet, which had extra links that dangled from his wrist.

The rocker wore a thicker chain around his neck in a photo snapped from the back.

The individual links appeared to have designs etched into them, and pointy silver spikes were also thrown into the mix.

Another closeup featured another smaller chain with more modest links and similar spikes attached to it.

The safety pin has a long legacy with punk rock, as originators of the genre used them both for functional purposes (to hold together tattered clothing) and for purely decorative purposes, so it made sense that Travis would go back to his roots with safety-pin inspired designs.

The drummer highlighted on chain from his collection that was made of interlocking safety pins, but instead of a standard lock, the pins were designed with skull-shaped locks for a particularly edgy feel.

The skull imagery was replicated in much greater detail with a silver ring he highlighted in closeup.

Travis reached up to adjust his black sunglasses to show off the jewelry, which featured a grinning skull on his index finger that was surrounded by engraved flames.

Going for a drive: Like his sisters-in-law Kendall and Kylie Jenner, Travis is a major car enthusiast, so he included a snapshot of himself behind the wheel to show off a variety of his new items, including a simple chain necklace, his dangling chain bracelet and his skull ring

To commemorate Travis’ Clocks + Colours collection, the popular YouTuber Peter McKinnon shared a video on Thursday that documented the photoshoot that resulted in the black-and-white images.

McKinnon, who joked about how nervous he was to meet Travis, got some footage of the drummer posing with Shane Vitaly Foran, the owner of Clocks + Colours.

The two posed against Travis’ car before the rocker playfully flipped off the camera.

‘You can take it in between shots,’ Travis replied with a laugh, although he later presented McKinnon with one of the skull rings as a gift after shooting had wrapped.

Travis concluded the video by showing off one of his favorite classic cars for the camera, which he bragged only had 700 miles on it, 400 of which were from him driving himself and his wife Kourtney to dinner.

After McKinnon complemented the fuzzy dice dangling from the rearview mirror, Travis added that one of Kourtney’s sisters had given them to him as a gift, though he didn’t specify which member of the Kardashian–Jenner clan it was.
