The inked-up Travis told HollyBaby.com exclusively that he has to approve any tattoos before his kids get them.

In California, minors under 18 years old aren’t allowed to get tattoos with or without an adult’s consent, but 36-year-old Travis Barker said he’ll let his kids get them as early as age 16! But he does have a few rules!

He might be more lenient about stepdaughter Atiana Cecelia, 12, and kids Landon Asher, 8, and Alabama Luelle, 5, getting tattoos than the state of California is, but Travis says they’ll have to ask before they get their first ink.

“I just got to approve it,” he told HollyBaby.com at the UFC On Fox: Live Heavyweight Championship Fight in Anaheim, Calif. “It can’t be a tramp stamp; it can’t be something in bad taste.”

For Travis, it’s quality over quantity: “It’s got to be done by a good artist, and then I am cool with it!”

But should the Barker kids want a rock-star look, they’ll have to wait until they’re 18, according to California law!

Is 16 too young to get a tattoo? What do YOU think, HollyMoms?
