I discovered Leah Dungo on Society6 when I bought her New Jersey print to cover my phone. I started to explore her artist profile and came across her relatively new but rather prolific blog and developed a girl crush on this intrepid upstart. I reached out to her to see if I could learn more about the artist, whose designs are carefully constructed but still manage to be whimsical. She obliged, of course.
Anonymous asked: Getting, "Be unafraid to bleed a little" tattooed down my spine. It's the perfect motto in my opinion. What inspired u to write that six worder? And do I just submit the picture here when it's done? Thanks for the inspiration and all your wonderful words. <3
Well, first off, don’t send this message anonymously! Let’s see who you are! Send pictures when/if you do get the tattoo! One other person that I know of has gotten ink of my work, and that was exciting—so let’s see yours when it’s done!
Do you have a link to that six worder, by the way? I cannot remember how old that particular one is. At any rate I can say, for a fact, that it was about the need for sacrifice in order to get things done.
Nowadays folks believe they are entitled to everything; nobody thinks they need to sweat, work, bleed, fail, and repeat that process ten thousand times in order to get one baby step closer to their goals/dreams. It’s disgusting.
Of course the world is unfair! It’s the world—when was it ever fair? It is, by its very nature, designed to trick you and kill you! The brightest berries in the woods are not food and neither are the animals. But we must learn; we must find these things out the hard way, not just sit on a stump, alone, and wait for help.
This, because the internet.
