AceShowbiz - Bam Margera might have regretted how he took care of his new tattoo. When revealing that he got a staph infection from his new body art collection on his leg, the "Jackass" star could not help but blame himself.
Making use of Instagram on March 8, the 41-year-old posted a picture from his hospital bed in which he showed off his infected leg. "The only person I can blame for my staff infection. Thank you Danny way for taking me. I deserve it and it f**king hurts very bad," he wrote in the caption.
Hours after sharing the post, Bam gave a closer look at his new tattoo on the photo-sharing platform. In the accompanying message, he penned, "I love how I did not take care of my tattoo, now I have to deal with the pain of a staff infection. In Farsi it says 'great news' aka Navid. But I let my great news get infected high five me because I'm an a**o who deserves it."
Bam has since received well wishes from his online devotees. One replied, "Get healthy brother! You got this!" Another stated, "Damn Bam, you did it again. Keep safe. Get a shower. Sort yourself out. We all love you." A third chimed in, "Hope you heal up nice and quickly!"
The professional skateboarder was said to likely get the infection after he went into a hot tub. Luckily, a source close to him spilled to TMZ that he has since left the hospital and is expected to make a full recovery.
Weeks before the staph infection, Bam was reportedly fired from "Jackass 4". In mid-February, he was said to have broken his contract by not getting his addiction issues in check during the project. He was supposed to follow the orders of taking his medication, blowing into a breathalyzer, staying sober, seeing a psychologist and doing routine drug tests, but he failed to do so.
