    Never too late to get a tattoo & it's quite a good idea if you don't think anyone else should make that decision for you, this way no one has to & your wishes are honoured.

    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.” ~ haha very cool great idea

ditto Joy Tomkins: "I do not want to be half dead, I want to be fully dead. I’m afraid the medical profession will, with the best of intentions, keep me alive when I don’t want to be alive. I don’t want to lie for hours, months or even years before dying. I do not want to end up as a vegetable. I don’t want my family to remember me as a lump. That is why I got the tattoo. I don’t have a death wish I just don’t want to be kept alive in pain.”

This is Sam's tattoo from Mark Z. Danielewski's House of Leaves: The main character, Johnny Truant, strings these seemingly random words: Known. Some. Call. Is. Air. Am. and follows it with "Incoherent? Yes. Entirely without meaning? I'm afraid not." The assortment of words is actually phonetic Latin for "Non sum qualis eram." or "I am not what I once was."
