Kourtney Kardashian tries out a tattoo-heavy Instagram filter in latest selfie

7 mins read


Kourtney Kardashian appears to be taking inspiration from her boyfriend Travis Barker and his famously inked physique.

The 42-year-old KUWTK star played around with a tattoo-heavy filter and shared the outcome with her 126million Instagram followers on Friday.

Shortly after posting, Barker’s ex wife Shanna Moakler, who has taken digs at the couple in the past, modeled a similar tattoo filter on her own Instagram Story.

Kardashian kept it very casual in the shot, as she wore a black Beastie Boys t-shirt while getting herself ready for the snap.

Her typically flowing brunette hair was tied up in a long braid that made its way onto the right side of her chest.

Much of the entertainment industry figure’s right arm was covered with fake tattoo designs, as well as both sides of her face and her neck.

Her post appeared to be a test of what she would look like if she were to undergo extensive tattooing like Barker, 45.

Moakler, who split from Travis in 2008 and shares, opted for a more minimalistic tattoo filter, which placed a ‘Baby’ tattoo over one eyebrow and several smaller designs around her eyes.

Shanna has not held back when it comes to voicing criticism about Kourtney and Travis’ relationship, with the former Miss USA telling TMZ that she blames Kourtney and her little sister Kim for ‘destroying my family.’

Back in May, Moakler claimed to Us Weekly that her divorce from Travis was instigated by an alleged affair the drummer had with Kim prior to KUWTK fame.

Kim has vehemently denied Shanna’s allegation, with the 40-year-old calling the entire affair rumor a ‘false narrative’ in an Instagram Story post last month.

Kourtney and Travis were acquaintances for several years before they began dating, as they initially met while Kim was working for Paris Hilton, with whom the drummer was previously romantically involved. 

The Blink-182 member was also the focus of his own reality show, entitled Meet The Barkers, and reportedly gave the family advice about starring in their own program.

Both the reality television personality and the musician were involved with their former partners, Scott Disick and Shanna Moakler, respectively, after they initially met, although the relationships both came to an end.

The now-couple have also welcomed several children from their past connections.

In January, Kardashian posted a sultry snap to her Instagram account, and Barker left a rose emoji in the comments section, sparking speculation about the pair’s potential relationship.

In the latter portion of the month, a source spoke to Us Weekly and confirmed that the two were dating, with the insider noting that Barker was ‘very smitten with Kourtney and has been for a while.’

The pair were infrequently spotted out and about over the next few weeks before the reality television mainstay made her new relationship Instagram official shortly after Valentine’s Day.

The couple went on to take a vacation to Utah in April and brought their respective children along with them for the experience.

Later that month, the entrepreneur shared a photo to her Instagram account that showed a new tattoo of her name that Barker had received on the upper left part of his chest.

Earlier this week, an insider spoke to Entertainment Tonight and spoke about the couple’s take on the engagement rumors that are currently swirling.

Specifically, the source remarked that Kardashian and Barker ‘definitely see themselves ending up together one day.’

They also spoke about how the pair have quickly established a rapport with their loved ones and introduced their children to each other early on. 

The insider said that the two were happy about ‘how seamlessly they’ve integrated their families together…That’s always been very much a focus for both of them and they feel proud that everyone can be supportive of their happiness.’

The source concluded by expressing that, although the drummer is ready to make things official with Kardashian, she is fine with taking her time and mulling things over for the near future. 

‘Travis would absolutely love to tie the knot with Kourtney, but Kourtney hasn’t been sure that’s the step she wants to take…She is extraordinarily happy and doesn’t feel the need or want the pressure of getting married,’ they said.
