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.'”‘
