Bam Margera is in the hospital after getting some ink turned into a real tattoo nightmare.

The Jackass star was removed from filming of the fourth installment of the franchise. Now there is even more bad news for Phil and April’s baby boy.

Margera was hospitalized over the weekend after developing a staph infection on his leg after tattoo didn’t heal properly. He started feeling pain in his leg and the blame was pointed at his new Farsi tattoo. Margera is able to deal with a lot of pain, but this time he sought out medical professionals, and it’s a good thing he did.

Sources told TMZ that Margera believes that his leg was likely infected when he got into a hot tub. That caused an even bigger issue.


Margera was released from the hospital and he’s expected to make a recovery. This is a big lesson to learn. Wait until your ink heals before jumping into a big hot tub full of human soup.
