Great Grandmas Gets False Breasts And ‘Do Not Resuscitate’ Tattoos: Photos

by | 8th, September 2011

WE were going to tell you about Liverpool great grandma Joan Lloyd, who at 65 spent just under five grand on a big new chest. Reports are that the new F-Cup boobs are helping Joan score dates with men as young as 24. We don’t get to see the state of Joan’s dates. There age is all.

Instead we will tell you about Joy Tomkins, 81, of Downham Market, Norfolk, who has had her chest tattooed. The ink declares “Do Not Resuscitate”. It’s dark and Gothic. It’s the kind of tattoo that shames young Goths and punks. Add to thank her name – Joy – and Mrs Tomkins is unbearably cool.

On her back, Joan has another tattoo, this one says ”PTO” over an arrow. She hopes this will mean any medics do not miss the chest tattoo (and hot dates see the colour of her eyes).

Joy has Reynard’s disease and diabetes. Says she:

”I do not want to be half dead, I want to be fully dead. It might have been different when I was 51 but I am 81 now. Everybody has to die sometime but I do not want to end up as a vegetable. I hoped I would get away at 70 but I’m still happy to be alive now. I am afraid that the medical profession will, with the best of medical intentions I hope, 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 don’t want my family to remember me as a lump…”

Good for her. The news is full of dire warnings about the ageing population. so. Hate off a woman who does not want to linger and be a burden.

Of course, if Mrs Tomkins really wants to make sure doctors see her tattoos, she should inflate her chest, like the aforesaid Joan. They won’t be able to look away…
