American pop diva Miley Cyrus has recently been known to the whole world as the heroine of the series “Hannah Montana”, where she has played a teenage girl. Nowadays, she is famous not only for popular hits, but also for her tattoos. The example of Miley is really interesting, since at such a young age (she was born in 1992) she has already got about two dozen tattoos. Each of them has a specific meaning. Personally, I was impressed by the fact that Miley is not the only one, who is obsessed with tattooing in her family: her father, Billy Ray Cyrus, a country-singer formerly known in the US, as well as her stepbrother, are covered with tattoos. Thus, this is the case when “blue disease” was inherited. Let’s talk about all Miley Cyrus’s tattoos!
1. JUST BREATH UNDER BREAST
“Just breath” is the very first Miley’s tattoo in the form of inscription. She inked it, when she was 17 years old. This tattoo was made in memory of singer’s friend Vanessa, who died of lung cancer. The singer’s grandfathers passed away because of this terrible disease too. That’s why, the tattoo “just breath” is inked exactly in the lungs area.
2. LOVE ON EAR
The singer has a simple explanation of this inscription made on her auricle. She says that every day she hears so much negativity in her address that she stopped thinking about what she was told. Love is what really matters, what you want to think about and what you want to hear. Therefore, the inscription on ear is a filter for the actress and singer. It protects from vicious tongues.
3. HEART ON RIGHT LITTLE FINGER
Fingers are a favorite place for tattoos for our heroine. Almost every finger is decorated with a symbol. There is a heart tattooed on the right little finger. The girl claims that this symbol represents the unity of all the members of the Cyrus family. Moreover, after the same tattoo had been made by the father, mother, sister and brother of the singer, the heart on the finger became a family attribute.
4. CROSS ON WEDDING FINGER
Miss Cyrus has a tiny tattoo of a cross on the inside of wedding finger. Its meaning is connected with faith in God and belonging to Christianity.
5. DREAM CATCHER ON RIGHT SIDE
The biggest Miley’s tattoo is on her right side. There is a dream catcher. We described its meaning in a corresponding article. It is an ancient magical attribute that was used in Indian rites. It is believed that if you hang it on the bed, it will protect against bad dreams, letting you see only the good ones. The actress’s loved ones say that this attribute is present in her house. It is interesting that the number of feathers on the tattoo corresponds to the number of members of the singer’s family, which makes it even more symbolic.
6. PEACE SIGN ON RIGHT MIDDLE FINGER
Like all others, this symbol has its own meaning, which generally comes from the title. Most likely, it personifies a kind soul, but the owner doesn’t talk too much about its exact meaning, claiming that no tattoo on her body is meaningless.
7. ANCHOR ON RIGHT ANKLE
We talked about this tattoo in a corresponding article, where we discussed that it was inked not only by people who serve in the fleet. For Miley, it is the symbol of home, where she can stay safe in peace. Anchor tattoo represents a place, where you can always go back.
8. KARMA ON RIGHT INDEX FINGER
Nowadays, the concept of karma is as relevant as it has never been before. In general, such a tattoo means that everything good and bad that you do comes back to you. Good things happen only to good people, grief and disappointment is waiting for bad people.
9. EQUAL MARK ON RIGHT RING FINGER
The smallest and plainest and, at the same time, the most shocking Miley Cyrus’s tattoo looks like an ordinary equal mark: “=”. This is the case, when the meaning of the tattoo is indicated by the owner of the tattoo. Our heroine says that this tattoo was inked in support of gays and lesbians. Miley actively supports the legalization of same-sex marriages and considers equality in love to be one of her main priorities.
10. SKULL TATTOO ON ANKLE
Another tiny tattoo on Cyrus’s body looks like a skull. It is associated with the Day of the Dead — a Mexican holiday. In my opinion, the quality of this picture leaves much to be desired, but it is worth noting that this is a twin tattoo – Miley’s groom has exactly the same one.
11. OM SYMBOL ON LEFT WRIST
“OM” symbol originates from Indian culture and religion. It is a sound pronounced during meditation, vibrations of which are embodied in divine energy.
12. “LOVE WILL NEVER DIE” INSRIPTION ON LEFT ARM
The meaning of the tattoo is clear from the inscription itself. An interesting detail is that the first word is written with a small letter.
13. EYE ON RIGHT INDEX FINGER
It’s quite clear that any celebrity wants to protect himself/herself from all kinds of evil eye, hex and threats. There’s an eye on singer’s finger, that is, a protective symbol of slander and evil eye.
14. VIIXCI NUMBERS ON RIGHT FOREARM
The meaning of this tattoo is still unknown to the general public. As a rule, dates are written with Roman numbers. It is interesting that the singer Avril Lavigne has exactly the same tattoo in the same place. We’ll describe this tattoo in detail in the next article.
15. QUOTE ON LEFT ARM
Theodore Roosevelt’s quotation is inked on Miley Cyrus’s body: “This place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat”. This is the longest inscription on the body of the actress and it occupies 3 lines. Do you think that the font for tattoo in the form of inscriptions was chosen well? Comment!
16. WORD “BAD” ON RIGHT MIDDLE FINGER
The word BAD on singer’s finger is a tribute to the album of the same name by Michael Jackson. According to Miley, Jackson is her longtime idol, inspiring creativity.
Arrows in the form of a cross are a symbol of friendship, borrowed from Indian culture. The tattoo emphasizes actress’s friendly nature.
18. HEART ON RIGHT ARM
The tattoo is Leonardo da Vinci’s picture “anatomical heart”. There are two hearts situated close to each other inside the circle. Most likely, it is a symbol of unity of two hearts, embodying love.
Now, the singer has the image of a recently passed away pet — the beloved dog Floyd. The girl claims that it was extremely difficult to live through this loss. It is noteworthy that reportedly a new tattoo was made at a party, after taking a small amount of banned substances.
It’s also interesting to note that her close friends inked the same tattoo along with Miley. We should admit that this is a great way to support a beloved person in a difficult situation.
