Talk about over-share. Jesse James, Sandra Bullock's ex-husband and the motorcycle-riding television personality behind "Monster Garage," chopped off the tip of his pinky finger while working in his Austin, Texas, shop on Tuesday.

After the 44-year-old customizer rushed to the hospital, he shared gruesome photos of his injury on Instagram.


"OOOpps, Bad day at the office," James captioned one bloody image.

"Doesn't look like this little dude's gonna make it, Nice know'n you little buddy," he said in another photo showing the bloodless, severed tip of his finger.

While waiting for his surgery to begin, James called into TMZ to explain the accident.

"I was working in the shop and one of my gloves got caught in the machine ... it took my finger off," James explained.

"My wife and I were on the floor looking for the piece of finger so we could haul a** to the hospital," he added.
