An Australian woman who always had difficulty determining left from right has found a permanent solution to the problem by having the directions tattooed on her hands.
On February 3, D’Kodia Laine, 23, had the ink done by tattoo artist Lauren Winzer at Hunter & Fox, a renowned tattoo studio in Alexandria, located four kilometres south of Sydney CBD. The communications student, from Canberra, told Daily Mail Australia she got some amusing reactions from friends when she sent them photos of the finished artwork.
she said: ‘I just got a lot of laughing back and [messages like] “oh you were being serious!
Her boyfriend is happy that she will never confuse left and right again.
She continued: He’s grateful that now he won’t get secondhand embarrassment!’ ‘My friends would joke about how silly it looks having an adult make the L shape with your hands to differentiate,’
The issue came to a head during a scavenger hunt at a party in Canberra last year, where Ms Laine was chosen as the navigator for her team.
After asking the driver to take a few turns that turned out to be wrong, a friend drew an ‘L’ and ‘R ‘on her hands and Ms Laine jokingly said about getting the letters tattooed.
‘It started as a joke but it’s actually super useful and I don’t look dumb making an L with my fingers to figure it out,’ she said.
The photo of the tattoos were uploaded on Lauren Winzer’s Instagram account, which have garnered 3,921 ‘likes’ since they were uploaded in less than 24 hours ago, have amassed dozens of supportive responses.
‘Not only are tattoos cute, but they can also be super functional! Good luck with all your future directions, happy to help guide you,’ Ms Winzer wrote in the caption.
