Travis Barker has become the latest celebrity to be immortalized in wax as a Madame Tussauds wax figure.

Travis Barker's Sister-In-Law Is Beyond Impressed With His Wax Figure
According to the slew of pictures posted to his social media, Barker's wax figure was dressed in a leather jacket, boots, pants, and a studded belt. The figure appeared notably realistic, perfectly replicating the 47-year-old's dark eyebrows, tattoos, and bright blue eyes, making it one of Madame Tussauds' most lifelike figures to date.
The museum also added some bling, like a Cuban chain necklace, silver nose rings, and a replica of his wedding ring. Donning a red round-neck T-shirt with the inscription, "Don't F— With Me," written in all caps, a black beanie, and a silver necklace, the +44 co-founder proudly posed with the figure.
For starters, one snap showed the artist with one arm around the effigy's shoulders before he backed the camera to seemingly lay a kiss on its lips. Other photos showcased him pouting, covering his face, flipping viewers off, and making a yelling face.
In the final slide, which was a video, the camera zoomed out to reveal Barker making a funny face before zooming in on the figure's perfect facial features. In the caption, he told fans, "Come say hi to my clone."

His sister-in-law, Khloe Kardashian, commented under the post, expressing her amazement, "OK this is scary real!!!!! Wow!!!!" She added, "I swear it took me a minute to figure out who was who." The "Sk8er Boi" hitmaker Avril Lavigne also commented, writing, "Holy s—. I couldn't tell which one was you, haha."
Joining the conversation, this fan typed, "This is the most accurate wax figure i ever seen," another claimed, "He looks more like you than you, "and a third noted, "This has got to be the most accurate wax figure in history."
"1 actually didn't know which was real at 1st that's crazy," a fourth fan stated, as a fifth goofed, "Looks like the guy in the red shirt bothering you."
Barker had previously sent his fans into a frenzy when he uploaded a gruesome picture that indicated that he might have been in a fight. Per The Blast, he had bloodied knuckles and a black eye, with his hand appearing to be covered in bruises and gashes as if he'd punched a concrete wall.
Even though the exact cause of the severe injury remains unclear, the Box Car Racer also shared a snap of his leg, revealing blood on his black sweatpants. This development coincides with the Jury Award winner awaiting the arrival of his baby boy, who he is expecting with his pregnant wife, Kourtney Kardashian.

While Barker is in love with his wax figure, rapper Lil Wayne had the opposite reaction when his got unveiled at the Hollywood Wax Museum in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. The "Love Me" artist expressed his dissatisfaction with his wax replica after it went viral thanks to a TikTok video of the bizarre-looking image.
Taking to X, formerly Twitter, the renowned rapper candidly yelled, "Sorry wax museum but dat s— ain't me! You tried tho and I appreciate the effort."
It seemed his fans also felt the same way as they flooded the comments of the viral TikTok video to air their unhappy views. "This isn't even funny, so disrespectful to an icon and living legend. Smh. That's giving me T lanez, "one such supporter declared.
A second internet citizen explained, "This Lil Wayne wax figure looks less like him than the first time I did acid and I stupidly went on my phone and saw a picture of Birdman and Lil Wayne and for a second I thought their faces morphed together."
Others went on to suggest that the statue resembled artists like Jacquees and Toosii, prompting the latter to quip, "Man, that s— don't look like me even with my grown hair."
