The literal meaning is:
This inspirational sentence means “Do whatever you want” and is very often used as advice to someone.
You can use it just like you would use “Do whatever you want” in English, for example, when someone is hesitating between several options you can recommend this person to do whatever he/she wants.
You can also use it when you are desperate that someone is not listening to you and is obviously not open to conversation, in this case you can say “Bah ! Fais ce que tu veux !” (Bah! Do whatever you want!). Implying that this person could do what he/she wants but will have to assume the consequences of her/his choice.
Finally, you can be more precise depending on the topic of the conversation. For example, a friend wants a tattoo: “Fais ce que tu veux de ton corps” (Do whatever you want of your body) or about choosing a romantic partner: “Fais ce que tu veux de ton coeur” (Do whatever you want of your heart), etc.
