The three peonies on Sara’s arm are a symbol of growth. At first, the flowers are “shy” before the bloom. However, once they bloom they’re so big and powerful, just like Sara. Sara discovered these flowers five years ago when the love of her life gave her a bouquet of them before he left for a two-week trip; little did she know these flowers were about to turn dark. During this trip, her love started the ongoing cycle of betraying Sara. Sara loved this man, she went through nine years of betrayal with him until she finally had enough. Once Sara finally left him she got this tattoo. This flower is a symbol of hope. Hope that one day she will have a real family for her. This flower is how she is recovering from a broken heart, to remind her to have hope in life.
