SAN FRANCISCO, August 30, 2013 – JournalStone Publishing (JSP) President, Christopher C. Payne and Dark Discoveries Magazine Managing Editor, James Beach, are pleased to announce the signing of Leah Jung, and for the publication of a new, regular column in Dark Discoveries focused on the tattoo culture, Leah Jung and interviews with her friends, as they travel the globe.  The column/interviews will begin with issue #25, to be released on October 31, 2013, and recurring thereafter in succeeding issues.

Leah Jung is a professional singer/songwriter, model, actress, and writer, currently residing in Brooklyn, New York; she travels regularly. In addition to being one of the world’s most recognizable women used in media that targets tattoo culture, boasting over 30 magazine covers, she also sings and writes professionally. Leah currently pens a regular column for Ink Style Magazine, and has had her writing published in numerous other magazines and blogs. Her background in all things horror has, so far, been only personal. But this personal interest goes back so many years, she may as well have been watching Rosemary’s Baby while still in the womb. Insisting on being Dracula for Halloween at age three, running late for elementary school due to cemetery explorations, and calling “Dead Alive” her favorite movie since before she should have been allowed to watch it, Leah feels that her place with Dark Discoveries fits as snug as an Iron Maiden.  For more of Leah, visit
