Right to die campaigner Joy Tomkins from Downham Market, Norfolk who has a tattoo on her chest to say ‘Do Not Resuscitate’ and one on her back to say ‘PTO’. See MASONS story MNTATTOO: A ‘Right to Die’ grandmother who does not want doctors to save her life if she falls ill has had ”Do Not Resuscitate” tattooed across her chest – and ”PTO” on her back. Joy Tomkins, 81, decided she did not want to be brought back to life in a medical emergency following the slow death of her husband Malcolm. The mum-of-two, who is not terminally ill, has now had ”Do Not Resuscitate” tattooed across her chest to ensure that doctors respect her right to die. Joy has also had ”PTO” and an arrow inked onto her back – so that paramedics will read the words on her chest if she collapses face first.
