Lisa Curry, 59, has taken to social media this week to share the touching message behind her new tattoo.

Curry debuted her “new ink” on Instagram Thursday, April 7, revealing a small, pink, dragonfly tattoo on the inside area of her wrist.

“A dragonfly symbol represents hope, change, transformation and self-realisation,” Curry wrote.

“It’s a reminder to shed more light and joy in life, to love life, to rejoice and have faith amidst difficulties.”

The former Olympian alluded to her recent struggles with family loss, revealing the tattoo was a reminder to stay positive despite facing hardships.

“It reminds you not to remain in the dark or the shadows,” she wrote.

“To a warrior and fighter, a dragonfly tattoo represents agility, power, speed, victory and courage.”

Curry went on to admit she was “ready for change” in her life and that she was now ready to “live life to the fullest and appreciate every moment” after being publicly open with fans about the mental challenges she’d faced over recent months.

“Dragonflies symbolise that you’re ready for change in your life. This is me today,” she wrote.

On September 14, 2020, Curry’s eldest daughter, Jaime Curry, passed away after a grueling battle with a long-term illness.

The loss took a devastating toll on the family, with Curry admitting she “felt empty” following the tragic death of her “baby girl”.

Curry took to Instagram to share the heart-wrenching loss with her fans, admitting she was overwhelmed with grief.

“Thank you for being a wonderful mother,” she wrote.

“Have a nice long sleep mum. We love you so much and we’ll all miss you.”
