Miley Cyrus Shows Off Her New Theodore Roosevelt-Inspired Tattoo

Ink by Teddy

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?

  1. she seems like she gives her tattoos some thought before she gets them, so theres probably a good reason behind it.

  2. “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.”-LOL!

    I actually like the quote, placement, font, etc. Miley always seems to put a lot of thought into her tattoos.

    But let’s stop talking about her new tat for a second and talk about how fit she looks. Holy hell, I’m jealous. Maybe I should start pilates too…

  4. shit. i actually like quote.

    I love this tattoo and I don’t think it’s odd at all. It seems to show that Miley recognizes the importance of being willing to live life courageously through victory and defeat, through personal mistakes and personal triumphs, and remain strong in both circumstances. Pretty awesome.

    “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” That’s EXACTLY how it got there lol

    I can’t keep up with her anymore!

    There always seems to be a lot of thought behind what she gets. And her body is bangin’!

    I love this portion of the speech. I was a college athlete and found it very inspiring. It’s better than the standard tattoos most rebellious teens get!

    perhaps she interpreted this part to mean that she, as a celebrity, shouldn’t surround herself with people who aren’t in her position or are merely looking to get famous for knowing her. Who knows either way, I think it’s a super cool tattoo and suits her!

  11. i quoted that to my sixth graders! that is an odd tattoo choice, but it does seem to be thoughtful!
