DNR Tattoo

We joke about this all the time, and I found it amusing that someone actually did it..."An emergency medicine specialist has given himself an 80th birthday present with a difference – he's had DO NOT RESUSCITATE tattooed across his chest".

He's prudent to have invested in the extra ink. If he had gotten a "DNR" tattoo, it's possible he could have been mistaken for a Department of Natural Resources loyalist.

Given this physician's experience, age and expected futility of any resuscitative effort, I concur in his decision to tattoo 'DO NOT RESUSCITATE' on his chest. Great idea! Bravo!
