Wildflower.  What does this mean to you and how does your tattoo represent the way you live and see the wold.

I asked my grandma, “if I could be any flower, which one would I be” and she said, “a Wildflower”. I’ve always been a happy, adventurous person. I’ve never been scared to try anything. I see the world as a one big puzzle. You have to go through things and to new places, to see the pieces fit together. And at the end of the day, it’s one big, beautiful picture.

Tell us more about yourself.

I am very passionate about art. I am in love with the idea of poems being wrote, pictures being painted, buildings being created, and just seeing individual ideas of other people come to life. It speaks so much volume on their character and their specific morals, struggles, desires, and what makes them happy. I would probably label myself as a wanderer. I never really follow the crowd, but then again I’m not always leading it. I strive to be Christ like. I sometimes feel like a therapist because I always have people coming to me for advise. But I can’t get enough of it. I love to help people and see people grow from tough situations, because in my opinion that’s what makes you, you. You have to go through the bad, to get the good. You learn who you are and how strong you are. I’m a happy person, with every desire to make other people happy as well. Hopefully in the future I will be traveling, living the life I’ve dreamt of since I was a little girl. I’ve never been the type to depend on someone else. Finding true love would be amazing, but I’m waiting on the Lord to send me my person.
