“We are not our failures” is a line from a La Dispute song. This tattoo holds a lot of personal meaning, due to the past year of my life being quite difficult.  I got this done by Joe at Ink and Dagger in Louisville, Kentucky.

Serious ink! 81-year-old Joy Tomkins wanted to make sure no one tried to bring her back from the dead, so she did what any normal grandmother of six would do: She had “Do Not Resuscitate” tattooed on her chest. “I do not want to be half dead, I want to be fully dead,” said Tomkins, who suffers from arthritis, Reynard’s disease, and diabetes. “I’m afraid the medical profession will, with the best of intentions, keep me alive when I don’t want to be alive.”
