Leave it to Rob Lowe to make a bloody knee look incredibly sexy.

The former Parks and Recreation star Instagrammed from the hospital on Sunday a photo of him getting stitches due to a surfing injury. He captioned the pic of his knee being sewed up, writing: "My day so far. I will live. #SurfStitches."

The 50-year-old (yes, he's 50!) later posted a sexy, shirtless pic of himself in red swim trunks, holding his surfboard as blood ran down his knee. Blood or no blood, Lowe looks good sans shirt.

"So sharky," he tweeted. "The amount of blood that can unwantedly come out of one's body is amazing."

This injury shouldn't keep the actor out of the water for long. "My family and I spend a lot of time on the ocean," he recently told Parade magazine. "We love being outdoors, and I can see that my sons care deeply about the ocean and wildlife too."
