I decided at about five years old that when I grew up, I was going to join the Circus.
I have been practicing ever since. Many injuries have been sustained from my circus based escapes. I can assure you that attempting to tightrope walk across the back of the sofa or practice trapeze skills from the chandeliers is generally not a good idea.
In homage to my circus family (with some old school, photo taking, printing, cutting, sticking, faffing and scanning lomo stylee – why use photoshop when you can create mess?) here is a self-portrait of me in one of my many realities as a tattooed lady.
