"Stay Strong" – A girl contacted me today asking for a tattoo design. She suffers from a form of eating disorder as well as self harm and wanted this phrase as a reminder. She shared an honest story that was very moving. I wanted to make a gesture that would be an encouragement to her that there was someone pulling for her. For all I know, she had never told anyone but me about her problem. While not something I usually do, I did this design free of charge for her. I share this story to inspire you to use your gifts for good. Whatever, you do, however simple you think it is, look for ways to build other people up with it. You may be the only one to give someone hope that day.

Great story, dude. Those letterforms really speak to both the fragility and strength inherent in struggles of that nature. Really well considered and executed lettering. Kudos to you.
I agree with you there man, always great to help build other people up!
It's hard sometimes to know where the line begins and ends for free work, but here it's rather clear. Nicely done- I hope she loves it!
Probably my favorite piece you've ever done. Very nice.
That is so awesome. That is very kind of you, and that is a great example to everyone :)
Wow, this is very kind and inspirational. Is the girl French?
Nice lettering work, well done!
Really nice gesture, very thoughtful
Highly inspirational, thanks for sharing this story.
