Art that adorns the flesh…


June 29th, 2011 by

Back in May I blogged about Stetson Johnson, an Oklahoma City resident who was beaten, had his genitals tasered and was left with two forced homemade tattoos, when a group of teens he was hanging around with turned on him.  Johnson was actually beaten unconscious with a baseball bat and was lucky to have survived the ordeal.  The two tattoos which were forcibly inked on to him were on his forehead and chest.  On his forehead, the tattoo read “RAPEST” and on his chest “I Like Little Boys”.

Well, the offending parties were caught and had their day in court and the verdicts have now been handed down.  Guess what?  All four of the accused are heading to jail for their parts in the attack.

‘Three of the four also pleaded guilty to assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, while the fourth pleaded no contest.

As part of a plea agreement, Dellert, 25, and Provence, 21, were sentenced to 10 years in prison followed by 10 years of probation.

Vergara, 24, and Hodges, 33, were sentenced to five years in prison followed by five years of probation.’

No doubt about it, this was a sick as hell attack, made even more disgusting by the fact that they brought a tattoo machine into the mix.  Johnson has since had the tattoo on his forehead covered up with a barcode, but the cover up job wasn’t the best and the writing could still be seen beneath it.  Since the verdict was handed down on the attackers, Johnson’s mother has come out and said that her son will now have the forced tattoos lasered off.

Hopefully Stetson can now do his best to put this ugly incident far behind him.
