Dandelions have always been really important to me.

What is The Symbolism of Dandolion Tattoo
The thing about dandelions is that they are such a strong part of youth. Every child can’t resist them. They are fascinating and interactive and just so perfectly fun. And then we grow up and dandelions become less interesting and you walk by them all the time and never stop to actually blow on one. You remember how fun it was but you still are too busy to have fun. And something like this reminds us that there is joy in youth that ought to be cherished and not lost when we’re older.
To me it’s more than the old cliche ot take time and smell the flowers, it’s a reminder to take time and smell the flowers the way you did when you were young. Because that’s when the world was most beautiful of all.”
