(Newser) – Dan Wheldon spent the final evening of his life doing something you might expect in Las Vegas: getting his-and-her tattoos with wife Susie, reports the Las Vegas Review-Journal. The couple had "DW" and "SW" tattooed on their wrists at Huntington Ink inside the Palms around 10pm last night, a source tells the paper. Says a friend who ran into Wheldon and his family just before that, "He was just a fun, fun guy. A great guy." The last tweet on Wheldon's Twitter account, before the devastating accident that killed him, reads, "Green!!!!" For more on Wheldon, click here.
