Bam Margera gets son’s name tattooed on his face and written in Arabic to criticise his ex-wife
| Last updated
Bam Margera has some new ink and this time it's just above his eyebrow.
The Jackass alum got his son's name written into his skin, but instead of it being the English version of Phoenix, it's actually written in Arabic.
Margera walked into the Tribal Roots Tattoo Studio, owned by Gray Wok, and asked for the design.
Wok wrote on social media: "Tattooed Bam's face today. Appreciate you guys coming in!"
The New York Post says he also got a small design done on his hand.
He initially showed off the eyebrow tattoo on Instagram where he posed with skater Jesse Gullings.
However, on Bam's second Instagram account, he revealed the true inspiration for the design.
"I miss Phoenix the wolf so much I had to to get his name tattooed on my f**kin face to remind Nikki she is breaking my heart by not letting me see him," he said.
Bam's ex-wfie Nicole Boyd filed for divorce earlier this year.
People reported she cited 'irreconcilable differences' as the reason for the separation.
Boyd said the couple broke up back in September 2021, but she felt 'compelled' to legally separate due to Margera's substance abuse and 'erratic behaviour'.
Bam has undergone extensive rehabilitation and has tried to get back on the straight and narrow for his family.
Back in May last year, he boasted about completing a 12-month program.
Nicole and Phoenix had relocated near the treatment centre during Bam’s stay to allow Margera to live with his family while undergoing rehabilitation.
Bam praised his family on Instagram, saying: “In times of test, family is best.”
Boyd said in a statement shared with People through her attorney: "We love Bam, both as a husband and father.
"We pray that he will give it all he has this time at this new rehab facility so he can complete his treatment and come home to the family that loves him."
However, it's clear things didn't work out for the family as Nikki has asked for legal and physical custody of their son as part of their divorce settlement.
She wants to allow Margera visitation rights in the Los Angeles County region.
In a statement shared with People, Boyd's attorney David Glass said: "Nikki Margera felt compelled to file for legal separation from her husband, Bam Margera, due to his continuing drug and alcohol abuse, erratic behavior, and due to his failure to provide support for her and their son.
"Nikki has put everything she has into trying to get Bam to stay sober, and to trying to preserve her family."
The pair was married in 2013.
