Sam Smith's Index Finger Tattoos
Smith has a bunch of tiny tattoos on their hands. On the side of their left index finger, they have the symbol of the Roman goddess Venus that represents the female sex. They also have complementary ink of the symbol of the Roman god Mars, depicting the male sex. The latter is located in the exact same location but on their right index finger. The musician got the pair of tattoos when they were 17. The meaningful design might be in honor of their gender fluidity. "I feel just as much woman as I am man," they told The Sunday Times in 2017.
They also have what appears to be another set of matching finger tattoos on both their index fingers. The tiny ink resembles the Eiffel Tower. However, the right-hand tattoo is speculated to covertly include the letter "B," which Smith reportedly got during their relationship with the "13 Reasons Why" actor, Brandon Flynn. The pair dated for nearly nine months between 2017-2018.

Smith got an equal sign tattooed on their left ring finger, which expresses their passion and advocacy for equal rights for the LGBTQ+ community. "The equality sign on my wedding finger. This ones pretty self explanatory. It shows my views on gay marriage and equality for all x," they offered in a now-deleted Instagram post.
Two horizontal parallel lines are also placed on their right ring finger, which, according to Smith, is "inspired by one of the oldest tattoos ever found on a mummified body that was found buried alone in the ice."
