Every time I see a depiction of the duality of bipolar, I’m disappointed. I don’t even like the word bipolar, that binary description is so wrong – and I know that many of you agree. I wondered what I’d choose to represent it if I wanted to. Now, in terms of those dualities, two of my tattoos fit pretty well, on a number of levels. I love my tattoos, but those two, with their subtle symmetry, possess equilibrium that I’ve never had, do not have and never will have. The bipolar misnomer, well it’s a spectrum isn’t it, maybe even a circle.

I can’t see myself inking a disease into my skin – any disease – but if I were to add even more bipolar to my body, I’d make my feelings clear…

Flipping coins for my fate
Now ain’t that impressive?
Tails you never fail to feel hollow now hush and let the dark swallow
Move a little closer, what are you afraid of
Set the night on fire, baby burn it up
