Ian Somerhalder must be pretty used to blood by now, because Damon Salvatore is always drenched in the stuff on The Vampire Diaries.

Case in point: A lucky fan tweeted this photo of the hemoglobin-covered hottie after shaking his hand on set. The cast was filming Season 4, Episode 17, "Because the Night" at Georgia State University, but it’s not clear exactly what happened to the elder Salvatore (or if his fangs happened to someone else).


Ian has been saying the newly emotionless Elena (Nina Dobrev) keeps beating up Damon. “If someone’s going to kick your ass,” he tells E! Online, “it might as well be Nina Dobrev.”


Maybe she’s to blame for all that blood?
