    Miley Cyrus


    Miley Cyrus got a tattoo of a fish on her upper arm from artist Dr Woo in February 2015.  It is a tribute to Miley’s pet blowfish who passed away. She has a history of commemorating her pets through both her music and tattoos. She wrote a song “Pablow the Blowfish” for her digital album Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz which was released in August 2015, a few months after the tattoo.

    Miley Cyrus and her mother Leticia “Tish” Cyrus went together to get tattoos from artist Dr Woo in April 2016. Tish got an arrow on her arm and Miley got a tribute to Elvis Presley.

    Miley Cyrus got a tattoo of jar of Vegemite on the back of her left arm in July 2016. The tattoo is a tribute to her long-time boyfriend/fiance Liam Hemsworth, who is Australian. Vegemite is yeast-based food spread which is popular in Australia — and generally hated everywhere else!

    While most of Miley’s arm tattoos have a homemade look to them, she went to famed Los Angeles artist Dr Woo for this one.  He used his signature half-needle technique to cram lots of detail into the small tattoo. (more…)
