: Psico Design ep. 17 : BLOWBALL

BLOWBALL, the hidden meaning in a tattoo 

 

in this short article of the section “PSICO DESIGN – the psychology of the drawings” we address the meaning and symbolism of the BLOWBALL from a mythical or primordial point of view, to apply it in the portrayal of the tattoo

 

Anyway, we speak of fairytales that make us dream, there’s no time for science here

 

The prefrontal cortex has no ground here, we move within the emotions of the limbic brain or the instinct of the reptilian brain 

 

THE BLOWBALL of the dandelion is a flower that speaks of dreams

 

we all know the feeling of picking up a blowball from the ground, 

make a wish and then blow on it as if it was a candle on a cake,

and hope that your  wish will come true 

 

and this ritual is all well and good and maybe unconsciously , we are helping the plant making its own wish 

 

actually, the blowball comes from the evolution of the yellow flower of the dandelion

this evolution of the flower is the creation of prolific seeds

each achene that we see flying when we blow, it’s a seed of the plant

 

a plant that’s very happy  to have her seeds dispersed in the air, giving it the possibility to breed

 

we are giving the seeds the chance to rest on the ground and create a new life

 

twe are giving our dreams the chance to meet a fertile ground to stick and bloom, to be born and proliferate 

 

is there a better link than this? 

 

the blowball makes us wish, it’s the first step that we take towards  the fulfilment of our wish

 

It’s the ultimate way to believe in your dream and blaze a new trail

 

Because, as someone said, ” a path begins with the first step” and if we do not do this first step, we will never go anywhere
