Tale after tale whenever there is a mention of time flying you will usually get to hear about dandelions. A flower associated with flying time, dandelions have a lot of meaning as a tattoo design. They express a love of freedom and the wish to rise above the odds of life in a shining, positive manner. When you look at the petals flying away from a dandelion on the breeze your mind would also want to soar, much like birds. Dandelion petals are the nearest one can get to flying without wings. This is why dandelions are a powerful and popular tattoo symbol.
The circular shape of the flower with the long stem makes it a bold design for a tattoo. A single color dandelion looks great with delicate shades that bring out its beauty. You can also go for a touch of color like pink, or a white highlight to make the flower design stand out. You can get the petals to make a fine horizontal design on your back, or have the design inked vertically on your leg or arm. Combine the Dandelion Tattoo with your favorite quote on flying, adventure, or freedom, and you have got yourself a really cool piece of body art.
