Kelli finished the honeysuckle vine this afternoon. We didn’t have time for the shading 2 weeks ago when I got the tattoo. She is so awesome, and an amazing artist. 🖤🌿🖤

The honeysuckle represents joy, love, pure happiness, romance, sweetness, affection, growth, strength, resilience, and a connection to nature. It’s also nostalgic as my grandma had a honeysuckle vine in her backyard. In addition, they are everywhere in the Deep South. As kids we would pick the flowers, pull the stem out, and enjoy the tiny drop of nectar found inside.

Butterfly for emerging from the cocoon, transformation, growth, vitality, and new beginnings.

Finally fully healed! Love it! 🖤🖤🖤 Thank you, Kelli! Listen up. If you don’t like my tattoo, you are welcome to keep your opinion to yourself. ✌️🙌✌️

Dandelions represent transformation and growth, going through different stages and blooming. Additionally they represent resilience, hope, and perseverance. Words of Alchemy is the title of my latest book; which also has a dandelion on the cover (a photo that I took on a walk).

The dragonfly represents transformation, change, hope, new beginnings, fresh starts, and self-realization.
