Dan Wheldon and His Wife Reportedly Got Each Other's Initials Tattooed on Their Wrists the Night Before He Died

You’re probably saddened by the death of 33-year-old Dan Wheldon. This might add to your sorrows:

A tipster told Vegas Confidential that Wheldon and his wife had their initials — D.W. and S.W. — tattooed on their wrists about 10 p.m. at Huntington Ink at the Palms. A female employee at the tattoo shop declined comment, saying, “Sorry, I can’t give out that information.”

A reason to believe the story – George Maloof is quoted in Norm Clarke’s piece, and George Maloof owns the Palms. [LVRJ]

For added perspective on Wheldon, I recommend this column by Ed Graney, also in the Review-Journal.

[UPDATE: Darren Rovell has found a photo of Wheldon’s tattoo.]
