If you have a Pinterest or Instagram account, odds are you’ve seen your fair share of dandelion tattoos. More specifically, the design in which the flower’s seeds can be seen blowing off the stem into the air before transforming into birds. While this trend is about as common as any in the industry, it does make for a wondering work of art, which is why it’s become so popular. So popular in fact that about half of all the dandelion designs out there are of this style.

When compiling this list we did our best to sample as many different designs as we could find for the sake of variety, but be warned, a large portion of this list is unavoidably dormant dandelion seeds blowing in the wind. Let’s get started.

The Meaning Behind A Dandelion Tattoo

n some ways, dandelions are the quintessential flower of our childhood: many of us have nostalgic memories of blowing away the dandelion’s tiny seeds into the wind, making a wish. As adults, we look back on the dandelion, and we’re reminded of youthful fancies. This unique flower is also a longstanding symbol of healing: The Latin term for dandelion, ‘Taraxacum Officinale’ translates to mean ‘the official remedy for disorders. Below, we’ve put together a dandelion tattoo dictionary, explaining the meaning behind each one of these tattoo designs.

The dandelion is different from other flowers: considered ordinary and plain when compared to showier blooms like the rose and lotus, what the dandelion lacks in color and obvious beauty, it makes up for it with its unique geometry. Its distinctive look is what makes it irresistible as a child, and since most of us have blown a dandelion at some point, we know how amazing and magical it is to watch the fluffy dandelion seeds fly through the air. Even though they are common weeds, If you see one growing, you notice it and remember how the fluff flew when you blew on it. This is why the dandelion is a visual reminder of youth and joy.

In a sense, the dandelion can be a symbol of life. It is a plain and unimpressive weed, nearly impossible to remove because of its spectacularly strong roots. Then, when it goes to seed, it is suddenly beautiful, fluffy and white, standing proudly above the grass and weeds. But then finally, one strong wind and its beautiful geometry is gone. The dandelion tattoo can remind you to enjoy every moment that you are blessed to have. It shows that life is both tenacious and delicate and we only have one chance to make the most of it.

The dandelion can also be associated with hope and dreams that come true. Because when children blow on dandelion fluff, they close their eyes and make a wish. When they see a dandelion head, they are reminded of all the things they have and will wish for. Some of us are lucky enough to have our dreams come true. In such cases, the dandelion tattoo can be worn to symbolize how dreams came true.

Since this is just a new and upcoming tattoo design, only a few designs are out there in the open that can be made into a dandelion tattoo. Regardless of the lack of design options, here are some of the best dandelion tattoo designs that we found.

The Watercolor Tattoo

Over the last decade, the explosion of various tattoo ink colors resulted in an idea that is then considered bold and inconceivable by old tattoo artists and enthusiasts: Watercolor tattoos. Everyone thought that mimicking modern art on the skin will never be possible until the first batch of watercolor tattoos sprung up in the latter half of the 2000s. These tattoos were considered out of this world because of its richness in color that was never before seen in the industry. Soon, the design caught on and it is now a trend for both tattoo artists and enthusiasts.

Since its introduction in the body art industry, watercolor tattoos slowly gained traction because of its artistic implications. The artistic value and the visual appeal that it holds is breathtaking. As a matter of fact, the surge of people who wants to get a tattoo can be attributed to the popularity of watercolor tattoo designs on the internet. There was even a time when watercolor tattoos dominated social media because of its unprecedented design and how it literally mimics a watercolor painting.
