You often hear people say that those who are left hand dominant are “lucky,” or that they are unique from all the rest. Demi Lovato is unique for a lot of different reasons, but being left handed is not one of them.
Demi Lovato is not left handed, but right hand dominant.
Although she is right hand dominant, she still takes her mirror selfies with her left hand, as you can see in her Instagram post below.
What Demi Lovato’s Left Hand Does Tell Us About Her
Demi Lovato may not use her left hand as her dominant one in functional tasks, but that does not mean that her left hand doesn’t have a story to tell.
In August 2017, Demi Lovato got a tattoo of a lion face on the back of her left hand.
The lion is said to have several meanings.
First, it is a symbol for her astrological sign, which is a Leo, and it represents her strength.
Coincidentally enough, or maybe not coincidentally at all, Demi Lovato also has a song called “Lionheart.” The song expresses a journey of finding strength through love, and is said to be written in relation to her dog.
Demi Lovato has also shared that if she could be any animal in the world, she would choose to be a lion.
It seems that lions really are her spirit animal.
Demi Lovato’s Other Tattoos…on Her Left Side
Demi Lovato not only has her lion tattoo, but has a total of 22 tattoos all over her body. Each one has a special meaning to her, making them timeless and sentimental.
Another tattoo on her left hand, Demi Lovato has a tattoo of a smiley face on the inside tip of her pinkie finger. Her reasoning behind this one was that life is simply too short not to have a silly tattoo.
I guess we cannot argue with her fun loving, free spirit.
On her left foot, Lovato has a bit of a more serious, yet still sentimental, tattoo. It reads, “Buddy was here,” to honor her beloved dog that passed away.
Lovato got the tattoo in September of 2015, soon after her dog was killed by a coyote in her own backyard. The dog had been a gift from her boyfriend, and while he was only with her for less than a year, he clearly had a profound impact on her life.
As close as Demi Lovato was with her dog, the same is true for her family. On her left rib cage, she has tattoos of each of her family members’ birthdays.
Like they say, keep friends close and family closer.
In the same regard, the final tattoo on Demi Lovato’s left side is the roman numeral “III” on her left wrist to commemorate her dad. Her father passed away from cancer in December 2013, so she got a tattoo of his favorite number to memorialize him.
Although they were not close due to his struggles with mental illness and alcohol addiction, she claims that he was still her father and was a wonderful person who she cares about deeply.
Aside from her body art, Demi Lovato has a sense of humor and fun loving personality that many have come to love. You can see her bright personality shine through in this YouTube video, using the link below.
