Politics Tattoos

Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus got matching tattoos of her Happy Hippie Foundation smiley face logo with a group of pals in November 2016.  Artist Daniel Winter stopped by Miley’s Los Angeles house to do the inkings — then Miley grabbed the tattoo gun and gave him his own.

Among the group of friends who got the tattoo was an Oklahoma City vintage dealer known as The Junk Fairy who has sourced many of Miley’s whacky outfits. She writes:

Other surreal moment…When Miley asks you to get a matching tattoo! My first! Even at almost age 61! Seven of us got matching tiny @happyhippiefdn smiley faces-that she designed!??? @winter_stone did several at Miley’s amazing house. #notdrunk #honored ?? More too not in photo!! #bondedforlife ??? #hopefulhippies

Miley’s super-tall dancer Amazon Ashley, close friend Katy Weaver, and photographer Jonce were also part of the group.

The design that they all got is a smiley face with two letter “H”s for eyes.  It is the logo for the Happy Hippie Foundation, a non-profit which Miley Cyrus founded to help combat homelessness among LQBTQ youth.

Janeane Garofalo has a heart tattoo on her left arm with the word “Liberal” above it. She told Inked “Being liberal is something to be very proud of. Over the last 30 years or so, the right wing of this country has managed to bastardize the word. They think it’s something to be feared because liberalism equals progress and social justice, and Republicans and conservatives hate progress and social justice. Liberal is not a dirty word. It’s not a pejorative.”

Miley Cyrus

The long passage on Miley Cyrus’ left forearm says “so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” It comes from the Citizenship in a Republic speech given by former United States president Theodore Roosevelt in 1910. Miley’s fiancé Liam Hemsworth has the preceding line on his arm.

The passage that this quote comes from is:

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 them 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, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in 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 fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.

The message of the tattoo is that it is better to try and to fail than to never try at all.
