Woman With Leo Lion Head Tattoo Gutted After NASA Announced Star Sign Change
A woman who got a lion's head tattoo because she is a Leo has been left devastated after NASA announced star signs had shifted - and she's now Cancer.
Lauren Sandford, 24, was over the moon when she got a massive lion's head inked on her leg in tribute to the star sign of Leo.
NASA have since revealed they have discovered a 13th star sign, shifting the dates for the other star signs to accommodate their new find.
According to the new calendar, Lauren's birthday of 4 August now means that her star sign could be seen to be Cancer, not Leo as she had believed for her entire life (I mean, she wasn't wrong, this is a new development).
Lauren from Worthing, West Sussex said: "I'm Leo through to the core. I've read up about Cancer now and I'm nothing like Cancer.
"I got told today at work by a colleague that NASA had changed the star signs so I looked it up and I couldn't believe they were saying I'm a Cancer now. I'm really annoyed - how can they just change them like that?!"
Support worker Lauren is no stranger to the tattoo studio with 30 inkings adorning her body but her lion is the biggest one she has.
Her star sign tattoo is on her right leg and is a stunningly intricate design of a lion's head decorated with flowers in the animal's hair, and was done in December 2019.
She paid £170 ($215) for the tattoo which was designed especially for her and took a painful three hours to be done at Thirteen Ink Studio in Worthing.
Lauren said: "When they finished the tattoo, I absolutely fell in love with it. I love lions, they are my favourite animal and I was over the moon that my star sign was Leo the lion, it's just me down to a t!"

NASA recently announced that they had uncovered a 13th zodiac sign, naming the new sign 'Ophiuchus' meaning 'serpent-bearer'.
The constellation was previously ignored by the ancient Babylonians when creating the Zodiac calendar but NASA have chosen to include it after the stars shifted position.
The new star sign lies in between Scorpio and Sagittarius, shifting the original Zodiac dates and changing the star signs of many people.
Lauren said: "I am definitely a Leo - I'm a very creative and passionate person, I'm warm hearted and pretty cheerful.
"I can have my stubborn days and lazy days. I love travelling and taking holidays, I'm always out with friends.
"My biggest dislike is being ignored and not being treated like a person should be - I'm a Leo through and through.
"I'm not a Cancer - I hate water so you wouldn't see me relaxing in any sort of water and I don't really like eating in front of people.
"I just don't see myself as a Cancer. I'm a Leo and no one is going to change that."
