Strange But True: A Bloody Tattoo Death

A Brooklyn father getting a tattoo called "Last Rites" inked into his flesh passed out and crashed headfirst into a glass counter yesterday, killing himself, police and witnesses said.

Joaquin Laguer, 27, nearly was decapitated during the horrific accident inside Buzz Tattoo, an unlicensed parlor in East Williamsburg.

"There was nothing I could do," said shaken tattoo artist Julio Ramos, 36. "I was kneeling next to him, praying to God.
My assistant said, 'He's gone.'"

Laguer, an aspiring model and rapper, felt faint soon after Ramos finished inking the outline of an abstract, wizardlike tattoo onto his right forearm.

Saying he was hungry, Laguer walked over to a glass counter where he'd placed a Spanish takeout meal of half a chicken, fried plantains and rice.

But before he could reach the food, he passed out and slammed into the front of the counter at 2 p.m. The shattering glass sliced deeply into his neck, Ramos said.

"There was no saving him," said Ramos' assistant, Wilson Fernandez, 24.

Laguer, who had a 2-year-old daughter, was rushed to Woodhull Hospital, where he was declared dead at 2:22 p.m.

His grieving girlfriend, Shanequa Neal, said Laguer had eight tattoos and wanted another featuring a picture of their daughter, J'lynn. When he couldn't afford it, he chose another tattoo out of a catalog.

Neal was stunned by the irony of the name of the "Last Rites" image he had selected. "It was like it was his time," she said.

Laguer's mother, Ruthie Stewart, said her son had been plagued with frequent fainting spells throughout his life. The cause of the fainting was never diagnosed, largely because he did not have health insurance and couldn't afford to go to a specialist, his mother said.

"If he had fallen anywhere else, he would be here now," said Stewart, who has two teardrops tattooed under her left eye.

Laguer worked as a security guard to pay bills but had done professional modeling and dreamed of a music career. While at Paul Robeson High School in Brooklyn, he amassed a roomful of trophies for baseball, basketball and football.

His heartbroken girlfriend could not bring herself to tell J'lynn of her dad's death last night. She said she wished she had answered his phone call from the parlor shortly before the deadly accident.

"Maybe he wasn't feeling good, and I could have got him to go home," she said. "I just wish I could hear his voice."

Ramos, who said he has done tattoos for Knicks star Stephon Marbury and Los Angeles Laker Lamar Odom, was slapped with three violations for failing to have or post a license and for not maintaining proper records.

"I just wish it had never happened," he said, while mopping up blood last night. "I wish he'd gone home to his kid."

Its time for another Awards show this time its the Dirty Awards.

Radio One will be honoring the best and crunkest stars of the dirty south with the First Annual Dirty Award. Radio One has created a unique award show that goes against the norm by nominating artists, designers and athletes that represent states in the Dirty South.

The Dirty Awards will be held in the entertainment Mecca of the South, Atlanta, at the Georgia International Convention Center. With nominees Mike Jones, Lil Jon, Ciara, Ludacris and Beyonce, to name a few, the Dirty Awards is sure to become a favorite among young urban viewers.

Radio One created the most original award categories of any award show created, including Best Gold Grill, Most Bootlegged CD, and Crunkest of the Crunk. The Dirty South Legend Award, very much similar to a lifetime achievement award, does the south justice by paying tribute and presenting “urban legends,” Eightball & MJG with an one of a kind Dirty Award Goblet, referred to as just the “Dirty.” Various artists’ performances to be announced will make this to be the crunkest award ever.

Busted: Boy George Arrested On Drug Charge

Boy George was arrested in New York for possessing drugs and making a fake police report after he called 911 early this morning (Oct. 7) and falsely said his home had been burglarized, police said. The singer, whose real name is George O'Dowd, called police from a Little Italy apartment around 3:14 a.m. and reported a burglary, said Detective Kevin Czartoryski.

Officers arrived on the scene and discovered a small amount of cocaine next to a computer, police said. A woman in the apartment said there was more cocaine around and police were continuing to investigate. A former spokesman for O'Dowd's autobiographical musical, Taboo, which closed last year, said he did not know whether the singer had a spokesman or lawyer.
