Noah Cyrus tattooed the motto “stand still” on her arm in honor of her father Billy Ray Cyrus, who she says “always taught me to stand still when things get too crazy.” He also has a song called “Stand Still.”
Her dad made the tattoo extra meaningful by getting his own to match — with Noah’s encouragement! She got her tattoo in June 2017 and Billy Ray got his a month later in July 2017. She told Vogue:
Something floated around from my dad’s side of the family is just to stand still. It just means that when everything is so hectic in your life and you don’t know what to do, just stand still and wait for your heart to tell you what to do, and it will take you to the right place. So, to stand still and take a breath in. It really does help me in certain situations. My dad and I have got it tattooed on our arms.
