The dragonfly lady – A click a day.

She strolled past me, a better part of her visible body covered in tattoos. I caught sight of the Dragonfly on her back and giving in to my curiousity, I  walked up to her, said hello, complimented her dragonfly and engaged her in a brief conversation.

Her body art serves as a cover for scars from injuries sustained in a car accident. She asked if I thought they were too much and I said no, that I could imagine the tattoos were prettier to look at than the keloids.

She smiled, stood still and obliged me with a photo 🙂

I did a little research on the dragonfly and found this information:

In almost every part of the World, the Dragonfly symbolizes change. Change in the perspective of self-realization. The kind of change that has its source in mental and emotional maturity and the understanding of the deeper meaning of life.

I may never come across the Dragonfly lady again, but I’ll remember the warmth in her eyes and the pleasure received from the conversation.

Fancy Footwork…Every day beautiful people # 31

Every tattoo has a little story behind it. I wonder what the story to the flowers on her legs. Hmm, I should have asked, now I’m wishing I did 😉
