Miley’s Body Evolution
Look at Miley Cyrus' sexy evolution.
It shouldn’t be a surprise that Miley Cyrus loves getting inked, but have you ever wondered why she has gotten the tattoos that she has?

Last week, the 19-year-old “Party in the USA” singer stepped out and showed off some brand new ink on her forearm, which consisted of Roman numerals VIIXCI (7 and 91). While the jury is still out on what her new tat means, Celebuzz decided to break down the meaning behind her other various tattoos. If you remember, Miley got her first tattoo at the age of 17, which reads “Just breathe” on her rib cage.

Any guesses as to why she went with that particular message?

A family friend of Miley’s suffers from cystic fibrosis, and dedicated her first tattoo to them.

Miley then followed up with some smaller tats, including an anchor on her pinky and “love” on her inner ear, but then got one of her largest ones to date — a dream catcher on the right hand side of her rib cage.
