Fitted with clothes donated by Barker himself — including a leather jacket, boots, pants and studded belt — the Blink-182 drummer’s statue looks to be one of Madame Tussauds’ most realistic-looking figures to date. His tattoos were replicated perfectly, as were his dark eyebrows and bright blue eyes.

“I’m honored, I’m flattered, I’m shocked,” the musician said at the unveiling ceremony, where he posed for pictures with his wax twin. “It looks so f–king real.”

Barker’s figure even features some of his signature silver jewelry, including his nose rings, chain necklace and wedding ring, which represents his marriage to Kourtney Kardashian. The Poosh founder — who is currently expecting the couple’s first child together — wasn’t in attendance at her husband’s wax figure debut, but the drummer was spotted showing her his duplicate over FaceTime.

The “All The Small Things” artist later posted some of his own photos with his wax lookalike on Instagram, writing, “Come say hi to my clone @madametussaudsusa.”

According to the press release, Barker worked closely with the Madame Tussauds team of sculptors, colorists, hairdressers and stylists to produce his wax figure, which is now the most-tattooed installment ever created by the museum. Each of his 100-plus tats was closely matched using 3D scanning, with the stenciling and coloring processes taking approximately nine weeks total.

Barker and Kardashian, who both have kids from past relationships, are on their way to becoming parents once again. The couple recently experienced a health scare regarding the pregnancy, which led Blink-182 to postpone a few overseas shows “due to an urgent family matter” as the drummer raced home to be with the reality star as she underwent urgent fetal surgery.

“That experience opened my eyes to a whole new world of pregnancy that I didn’t know about in the past,” Kardashian recalled of the incident in an interview with Vogue. “It was terrifying … I’ve finally been able to let go of the fear and worry that everybody else put in us because of this pregnancy.”
