Miley Cyrus has 16 tattoos.Teen bad girl Miley Cyrus just became legal.It’s no surprise really, because her father Billy Ray Cyrus has tattoos, and her brother Trace is practically covered.
Miley actually started getting tattoos before she turned 18 with her parents permission.
Miley’s first tattoo was a tribute to a friend of hers who died of the lung disease cystic fibrosis in 2007 when she was 17 and her grandfathers who both died of lung cancer. The tattoo is located just under her left breast and reads, “Just Breathe”.
She told Harper’s Bazaar:
“It reminds me not to take things for granted. I mean breathing – that was something none of them could do, the most basic thing. And I put it near my heart, because that is where they will always be.”
Miley’s second tattoo is the word “LOVE” on the upper inside of her right ear.
The tattoo and its placement on her ear signifies drowning out negative messages and only hearing the positive things.
Miley told Access Hollywood, “I have ‘Love’ right here to block out all the crap that everyone throws into your ears…I don’t really care about it. [You’re] only supposed to hear the things coming from the people that genuinely love you.” Miley also said in an interview, “There’s so much negativity in the world and what you only need to hear is all the love. People try to say to me, ‘I just heard someone say this or that about you,’ and I just ignore it because it’s irrelevant. Love is what makes the world go around, and that’s all we need to focus on.”

This tattoo is one that is shared with every adult in her family.Miley hasn’t spoken to the press about why she had either of these tattoos done, but she has previously said “I could never get a meaningless tattoo,” so there must be a story behind them.
Her father Billy Ray Cyrus was the first to get a heart tattoo and got his in 2008 out of his love for Miley.
In February 2011 Miley had a dreamcatcher tattooed on her right side.Cyrus told People Magazine, “It’s a picture of the dream catcher that hangs over her bed with four feathers to represent her four brothers and sisters.

for Glamour magazine, she wrote:
When I shared a picture of my tattoo on my Twitter page and said, “All LOVE is equal,” a lot of people mocked me–they said, “What happened to you? You used to be a Christian girl!” And I said, “Well, if you were a true Christian, you would have your facts straight. Christianity is about love.”
Cyrus got a tattoo on her left wrist of the ‘Om’ symbol: ?. Om is a sacred symbol in Hinduism and it’s Miley’s second tattoo to reference Indian culture and religion. Om is a sound or vibration that represents divine energy.
9.Love Never Dies
In February 2012, Miley Cyrus tattooed “Love Never Dies” in small letters on the inside of her left arm, on her bicep.
In March 2012, Miley Cyrus was spotted with what seems to be a tattoo on an eye and her knuckle. The tattoo is on her index finger on her right hand.
a symbol intended to ward off the “evil eye.” If so, it would seem that Miley has a growing interest in foreign cultures and customs. The evil eye is most prevalent in the Middle East, while Miley’s om and “karma” tattoos represent concepts from Hinduism and other Indian religions.
Miley Cyrus tattooed Roman numerals on the inside of her left elbow in May 2012. This tattoo is still a bit of a mystery as Miley has not spoken about it and it is not obvious what numbers it represents. The numerals are “VIIXCI,” which are the numbers 5, 1, 1, 10, 100, and 1. “VIIXCI” is not a valid Roman numeral and does not actually represent any number by itself. It seems like Miley intended to represent multiple numbers, but because she combined them with no spaces there are many possibilities. The ones which make the most sense are dates. It could be “VI I XCI” which is 6/1/91 (June 1, 1991), or “V II XCI” for 5/2/91 (May 2, 1991), or “VII XCI” for 7/91 (July 1991) — or it could be something else entirely. We’ll just have to wait for Miley to explain it
