My second tattoo. It is the scientific structure of serotonin, a chemical found in the brain that produces happy and joyful feelings. It reminds me that happiness is always possible because it is literally built into us. My Dads a scientist so it is dedicated to him as well.

I got this piece because lotus flowers are known to bloom in the mud. Several awful things happened to me last year, but I turned them into opportunities to let myself blossom. I took ugly, muddy situations and let something beautiful bloom. This tattoo means so much to me. It was done by Hakishi Orishima in Plano, Texas! www.hakishi-orishima.com
