Most people who promote a cause might usually do some volunteer work or perhaps donate some money. But singer Miley Cyrus has taken one step further in showing her support for gay rights, by getting a new tattoo. The 18-year-old got inked for the SEVENTH time, showing off the new design on her finger via her Twitter account. The singer got the ‘equal’ symbol permanently etched on her middle finger, writing on Twitter: ‘All LOVE is equal’. It appears that Miley is referring to The All Love is Equal campaign launched by the Gay & Lesbian Rights Lobby. Miley has been very vocal on gay rights in the past … Her latest inking joins Miley’s already vast collection of symbols and words. Just over two months ago she picked up an anchor design whilst on her Gypsy Hearts tour in Brazil. The singer chose the most permanent of mementos having the design done before leaving the country. Miley posed for photographs with Brazilian tattoo artist Fabio Sattori after he created a new etching on her right wrist … Her first tattoo – the words ‘Just Breathe’ on the left side of her chest – caused controversy as Miley was under age when it was done … Other inkings soon followed. Miley has an outline of a love heart on her pinky and a cross on the inside of her ring finger, both on her right hand. The Party In The USA singer also has the word ‘LOVE’ on the inside of her ear, as well as her largest – a dream catcher on the right side of her ribcage, which she acquired earlier this year.
While tattoos are a very personal thing for the individual and I would never presume to tell someone what to get OR what not to get, I PERSONALLY am not a fan of hand or finger tattoos. I think wrist tattoos can be very cool, if done right … but the hands and fingers just never look good to me. The same goes for face tattoos. BUT, if Miley is happy inking up her digits, more power to her. If her equality tattoo can change one mind and help the spread of equality around the world, then PRAISE JEBUS. What do y’all think of Miley‘s new tat? Are you a fan?
