Lion Tattoos

Chiara Ferragni


Chiara Ferragni celebrated the birth of her son Leone with a tattoo of lioness and cub on her upper right arm.

This tattoo relates to another lion tattoo that she has on the back of her arm.  She got the first tattoo of a male and female lion together to symbolize her hope for finding true love.  That was in August 2016 and she began dating Italian singer/rapper Fedez almost immediately after.  They became engaged in May 2017 and welcomed their first child in March 2018.  The lion tattoo is actually the reason that she chose to name her son Leone, which is the Italian word for lion.  So while the lion couple represents Chiara and Fedez, she wanted to add a new lion tattoo for her son.  Leone was born on March 19, 2018 and only a few weeks later she got this tattoo on her upper right arm of a mother lioness with her baby lion cub.

Chiara Ferragani has a tattoo on the back of her forearm of two lions in an oval frame.  The image of a male and female lion embracing each other represents the potential for finding a mate.  And as luck would have it, she hit things off with her husband Fedez shortly after.  She told Female:

At the end of August 2016, after a few months of being single and ‘dating’ guys who were not right for me, I tattooed two lions on the back of my right arm; a male lion and a female lion, which meant true love to me. The next day, Fede wrote to me to go to dinner and a week later we had our first date. I found my true love and [my son] Leo is the celebration of this love.

Demi Lovato


Demi Lovato got a tattoo of a lion’s face on the back of her left hand in August 2017. She stopped by artist Bang Bang’s New York City studio while she was in the city for the Time 100 Gala.

The lion has many meanings: it is the symbol for her astrological sign Leo, a icon of strength, and a reference to her song “Lionheart.” The song is about about finding strength through love and was partly inspired by her deceased dog Buddy, whom she called her little lion heart. A lionheart is someone with exceptional courage and bravery.

Demi has said that if she were any animal she would be a lion and if she could have any animal as a pet she would have either a lion or a unicorn.

Jackie Cruz


Jackie Cruz has a lion tattoo on her right forearm. This tattoo is special because it has a few different meanings for her: she’s a Leo and it represents her zodiac sign but it also represents the fact that she is a survivor and a leader. Inked on a side of her forearm, the tattoo is hidden and is a reminder to keep her head up and be strong, even if it looks impossible.
