I have a number of tattoos.
Two are spirals.
The first is a commemoration of surviving “a very bad year”. It is an ancient sign which is the symbol of the sun in many cultures but also represents the Labyrinth — a journey inwards and an journey outwards. While it is a single line, it incorporates both the inward and outward journey… into the darkness and out to the light.
It is over my breastbone and represents a number of things. It is my Sacred Heart… It is (metaphorically) wearing my heart on my sleeve… It is a tendril unfurling… It is a knot untied… It is a release…
