Words to live by, yes?
I first saw this phrase as part of a graffiti stencil; the words ‘Fuck Shit Up’ were accompanying a portrait of Frida Kahlo, a personal hero of mine, and I was so taken by the combination of the two that I started sketching my ideas for turning the motif into a tattoo. My enthusiasm for said tattoo dwindled when I finally realised what a poor idea it would be to permanently affix a large swear word to my person, but my love of the phrase hasn’t diminished, so I made a print that will soon be available in ye Olde Scarlet Tentacle Shoppe.
If you’re as enamored of this phrase as I am and you’re located somewhere nearby the Bay Area, you can purchase this print and many other exciting sundries — both brand new pieces and classic pieces — at my booth at the upcoming Renegade Craft Fair at Fort Mason in San Francisco on July 21st and 22nd. I’ll be in booth #15 selling my audaciously handmade bits and pieces, so if you come by, do make sure to say hello! You can get more information about the fair from the official Renegade Craft Fair page here.
