My new rib piece, courtesy of the awesome Ian White at Black 13 Tattoo Parlor in Nashville, TN.
I just found out a few months ago (via FYeahTattoos!) that the dandelion is the official flower of military brats. You know, blows where the wind takes it, takes up root anywhere. I believe that a large contributor to my personality is my growing up as an army brat. Taught me how to make friends quickly and made certain i would never have trouble coming out of my shell. I knew this was something symbolic that I would love to have as a tattoo. But I didn’t want a flower tattoo. So this is my “Dandy Lion”.
