Miley Cyrus has a massive tattoo collection that seems to grow as the days go by. The “Midnight Sky” singer got her first piece of ink in 2009 at the age of 17, and she hasn’t stopped since. Unlike many other celebrities who have their go-to tattooist they visit time and again, Cyrus’s tattoos are the work of various artists, and there are some very special meanings behind several of them.
Cyrus got her most recent design back in March of 2019, right before most of the country was directed to stay home due to the spread of COVID-19. In an Instagram photo shared by Los Angeles-based artist Nico Bassill at the time, she was seen showing off her latest body art, which was an illustration of a piece by Henri Matisse. Before that, Cyrus got a handwritten note she received from Yoko Ono traced onto her shoulder.
There’s plenty more where those came from, too. Read ahead for a brief guide to some of Cyrus’s most meaningful tattoos.
