Miley Cyrus’ Many Tattoos Are Edgy, Trendy and Cool — Here’s a Definitive Guide to All Her Ink

When it comes to celebs and tattoosMiley Cyrus might just be one of the most inked up A-listers out there. The “Flowers” singer has gotten tons of pieces over the years –74 as of 2023 –so we rounded up photos of all her tats so you can see just how many she has — and what they mean.

The Tennessee native got her first tattoo — “Just Breathe” in her mother’s handwriting on her ribcage — in 2010. The starlet got the tattoo in honor of a friend who died of cystic fibrosis in 2007, as well as her two grandfathers who passed away from lung cancer.

“It reminds me not to take things for granted. I mean, breathing — that was something none of them could do, the most basic thing,” Miley told Harper’s Bazaar at the time. “And I put it near my heart, because that is where they will always be.”

While she has a lot of small pieces that are more for fun than anything else, it seems the singer is all about the meaning behind her most prominent tattoos. In December 2019, Miley revealed she got “Freedom” tattooed on her hand above her knuckles on the heels of her divorce from Liam Hemsworth and split from fling Kaitlynn Carter.

“Don’t f—k with my FREEDOM,” she wrote on her Instagram Stories while showing off the ink at the time.

She is also no stranger to getting matching tattoos with her closest confidants. One particular tattoo that stands out is the rock ‘n roll heart she got on her arm with now ex-boyfriend Cody Simpson in October 2019.

Unfortunately, Life & Style confirmed the pair split in August 2020. “I did hear that Miley initiated the breakup. Cody didn’t want the relationship to end, but Miley calls the shots,” an insider told In Touch at the time. “I’m hearing that nothing major happened, no other party broke them up. She had a lot of fun with Cody, but she decided it was best to go their separate ways and remain friends.” At least they’ll always have their matching tattoos.
