Extreme Living Will

Apparently an 81-year old grandmother in England does not trust that having a living will on file with her doctor is sufficient. To make sure her medical team knows her wishes, she has had "do not resuscitate" tattooed on her chest and "PTO" tattooed on her shoulder.

I usually recommend that clients put their living will on file with their doctor, specialist, hospital, and give a few copies to their health care agent. I doubt I'll go so far as to mention the tattoo option.
