Canberra student D’Kodia Laine, 23, gets left and right tattoos on her hands

An Australian woman who always struggled to tell left from right has found a permanent solution to the problem by having the directions tattooed on her hands.

D’Kodia Laine, 23, had the ink done on February 3 by tattoo artist Lauren Winzer at Hunter & Fox, a renowned studio in Alexandria, 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.

‘I just got a lot of laughing back and [messages like] “oh you were being serious!”,’ she said.

Her boyfriend is delighted that she will never confuse left and right again.

‘He’s grateful that now he won’t get secondhand embarrassment!’ she said.

Ms Laine said she had always found it difficult to navigate left and right and faced increasing ridicule as she grew up.

‘My friends would joke about how silly it looks having an adult make the L shape with your hands to differentiate,’ she said.

The issue came to a head during a scavenger hunt at a party in Canberra last year, where Ms Laine was nominated as the navigator for her team.

After instructing the driver to take ‘a few wrong turns’, a friend drew an ‘L’ and ‘R ‘on her hands and Ms Laine joked 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.

A photo of the tattoos on Lauren Winzer’s Instagram account, which have racked up 3,921 ‘likes’ since they were uploaded less than 24 hours ago, have sparked 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.

The problem clearly resonated, with one woman replying: ‘I love this! I definitely need to do this myself.’ 

A second tagged her friends and wrote: ‘Have I not said I wanted this done?!’

Others agreed they would benefit from having the directions marked on their hands and applauded Ms Laine’s ingenuity.

The comments have cleared up any second thoughts she may have had about the permanent fixtures.

‘Based on the comments on the photo on Lauren’s page it seems to be a tattoo a lot of people are saying they need so I don’t feel too dumb now,’ Ms Laine said.
