I tattooed this design last night over scars on a super strong and intelligent babe and it was exhausting and fulfilling and beautiful and I'm super proud of the outcome. .
Tracey Emin - My Bed .
The idea for My Bed was inspired by a sexual yet depressive phase in the artist's life when she had remained in bed for several days without eating or drinking anything but alcohol. (Reportedly) When she looked at the vile, repulsive mess that had accumulated in her room, she suddenly realised what she had created. The artwork generated considerable media furore, particularly over the fact that the bedsheets were stained with bodily secretions and the floor had items from the artist's room, such as condoms, underwear with menstrual blood stains, other detritus, and functional, everyday objects, including a pair of slippers. The bed was presented in the state that Emin claimed it had been after languishing in it for several days; at the time she was suffering suicidal depression brought on by relationship difficulties.
