Bam Margera has just added to his long list of tattoos, apparently paying homage to the one and only Britney Spears.
In light of his recent health battles and rehab stints, it's safe to say that Margera has been through the ringer these past couple of years.
Someone else who has had some hardships of late is Britney Spears - particularly regarding her conservatorship battle.
The 'Toxic' singer's conservatorship started in 2008 and didn't end until November 2021 following a court battle between Spears and her father.
With their battles in mind, Margera claims to be 'on a level' with Spears, so much so he's now got a tattoo dedicated to the 41-year-old.
The inking reads: "Britney Spears [heart drawing] oops they did it to ME too :)".
Explaining his reasoning for the new tattoo, Margera, 44, tells the camera: "So, if you haven't known, I've been through the ringer with the Florida shuffle, which means that if the intervention know you have insurance money, they'll find reasons to keep you you there forever.
"So Britney Spears, oops they did it to me too. I'm on your level."
A 'Florida shuffle' is when a drug user with good health insurance is recruited to attend varies rehab centres, which allows the facilities to repeatedly bill the patient's insurance company.
This isn't the first time Margera has compared himself to Spears. Margera joined his Jackass pal Steve-O on his 'The Bucket List tour' earlier this year.
Margera went on stage with his buddy and Steve-O (real name Stephen Glover) introduced him and explained why he was tagging along on the tour.
"My dear friend Bam here is new to the idea of putting together an act. So, I'm here to help Bam kind of figure this out. So, go ahead and introduce yourself," he said on opening night.
Margera then proceeded to label himself as 'the Britney Spears of Jackass'.
"I've had a legal guardian make my decisions for a year," he told the crowd.
"A judge has stripped me from all my rights and I just completed my own rock and roll tour of ten different rehabs for a year-and-a-half in Florida."
Steve-O went on to say that he was 'really f**king worried' about his long-time friend and wanted him to 'stay close' in a bid to help Margera get better.
Now that's a good friend.
