Bizarre realizations in note taking:
The tattoos on Leonard Shelby’s body in the film Memento act as a physical zettelkasten of information stored on skin rather than index cards. He uses his permanent notes to supplement his fleeting memory to solve a murder.
Guy Pierce as Leonard Shelby featuring a number of text-based tattoos on his torso and arms. One in mirror revers from shoulder to shoulder reads "John G. raped and murdered my wife" while another across his chest in bold Celtic script reads "find him and kill him." Other tattoos in the black and white image can be seen but not read.
