Johnny's gruesome death wish

Los Angeles - Johnny Depp wants his tattoos framed when he dies.

The Lone Ranger actor originally wanted his death to “entertain people” but revealed he'd want to go with the “gruesome” idea of saving his body art for future generations to see.

He told The Times Magazine: “I originally wanted to be just tossed over a mountain so that people could watch it bounce. Might as well entertain people.

“Or maybe just save the tattoos. Because it might revolutionise what happens after death. Take a guy's tattoos off, make formaldehyde frames where it's preserved and stretched out and stuff - that doesn't sound gruesome at all, does it?

“No. That's not at all serial killer. That's totally cool. Can you imagine? 'What are those?' 'Oh, that's my dad's tattoos all over that wall'.”

He appreciates life

While the 50-year-old star might be thinking about mortality after recently celebrating the milestone age, Johnny has insisted reaching the landmark has made him truly appreciate life.

He previously explained: “It's great. I mean, I think any day you wake up and you're still around is a good thing. Every time you could take a breath and exhale and inhale again, it's a good thing; 50 is like, 'Sure! Why not?’”
