"I chose a dandelion for this tattoo for a number of reasons. I suffer from a variety of mental health conditions and my dandelion tattoo is part of a relaxing visualization technique for me. When I'm feeling anxious, the quote "she took a deep breath and let it go" reminds me to breathe and let go of tension and unwanted thoughts. I imagine blowing gentle puffs of air, like making a wish on a dandelion, to regulate my breathing.
Dandelions, being a weed, are known for their persistence. The dandelion reminds me that I can weather whatever comes my way, and still bloom strong and bright."
