Shia LaBeouf was sporting fresh head gear -- as in layers of bandages -- the morning after putting his head through a glass window ... and we got the first pics.
TMZ obtained these shots of Shia in Williston, ND on Thursday -- the day after he got 20 stitches and 13 staples. We broke the story ... Shia cut his head, left ear, and right index finger while shooting a scene for his movie, "American Honey."
The director and Shia agreed he would do the stunt himself ... for realism, and yes -- he really bled. A lot. We're told he actually gave it a 2nd go, and nailed it without injury.
Stuntmen? We don't need no stinkin' stuntmen.
