Back in February Miley Cyrus showed off a new tattoo that she had inked on the inner part of her left bicep … the phrase “love never dies”. Today we learn that Ms. Cyrus procured a new tattoo, also on her left arm. This time around, Miley had a bit more text inked into her flesh. As you can see below, Miley appears to be a student of American history because she chose to have part of a speech made by President Theodore Roosevelt tattooed on her inner arm. Check it out.
“It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.”
I suppose it’s a good idea that Miley didn’t have the entire speech by President Roosevelt inked into her arm … particularly because I don’t think she has enough space on her arms for the whole thing. Honestly, I find it a bit odd that she would have this particular portion of the speech tattooed on her arm. But, I try to make it a policy to not impose my personal judgements on anyone else’s tattoo decisions. Clearly this phrase means a lot to her, otherwise why would she have it permanently inked on her arm? I mean, it’s not like Miley just opened up a dusty old book and randomly pointed to a block of text and said, I want this tattooed on my arm … right?
