What do dandelion tattoos mean?
Now if you are determined (or determined) to tattoo a dandelioni guess you'd like to know what this tattoo symbolizes and means. The dandelion flower is one of the most common plants that can be, it grows in abundance and practically in any region of the world. And it is that, although it may seem that we are talking about a tattoo that symbolizes abundance, nothing is further from reality.
Its fragility and that it is associated with children and young people (we have all blown some dandelions as children) makes these tattoos symbolize innocence, purity and nostalgia. Despite this, we cannot leave aside the possibility that many people tattoo this flower to represent some special moment in their lives or a memory that we do not want the passage of time to turn gray and unclear.
As we well mentioned, innocence is one of the great meanings that are reflected in a tattoo like this. But we can still go a little further. The spiritual meaning of dandelion tattoos connect our present selves with the past. Yes, it may sound a bit weird but it is not. It is a way of not forgetting the great memories of childhood, of always being in contact with it and reliving happier times, or at least, without major complications. Magic and wishes are also connected with its symbolism. Although the plant itself has been considered magical in another time, in the face of its meaning it was not going to be left behind.
In Christianity it was said that this plant was associated with the love of Jesus. Synonymous with the good luck that always accompanies you. From what we can say that it has become a positive symbol and at the same time related to survival, healing and vitality.
Dandelion Tattoo Designs
It is best that you take a look at the complete dandelion tattoo gallery that you have below. Of course, when it comes to talking about designs, we see that there is one that prevails over the rest, at least in popularity and number of times tattooed. And it is a dandelion that has been blown out and whose flowers have turned into little birds.
Although and taking into account that this tattoo is "too seen", personally I would opt for something different, now, what we will comment on now is more a personal opinion than anything else. For my part, and if I had to give my opinion to someone who wants to do a dandelion tattoo, I would tell them to opt for a different style, a watercolor-like design that touches the abstract could be very good. And so we get away from the typical dandelion with a flock of birds.
Dandelion tattoo with letters
As with other types of tattoos, we can also enjoy many variations in this one. One of them is to see how the Dandelion tattoo with lettering takes first place. Perhaps because in addition to having all the symbolism that we have mentioned, we add a new meaning to it. We owe this to the letters that will form some words or phrases.
The most common thing is to see words of encouragement or those positive phrases that always remind us that we must continue fighting every day. Of course, it is best to opt for short phrases so that they do not overshadow the beauty of the dandelion. An original idea is to mix the part of the seeds with individual letters that will form a word. In this case, it is best if it is a proper name.
