Miley Cyrus’ Tattoo Timeline: What Are the Meanings Behind Her Ink? (PHOTOS)

Miley Cyrus' Many Tattoos

If there's one thing Miley Cyrus loves more than her fiance Liam Hemsworth, it's getting tattooed.

On Tuesday, the 19-year-old pop star showed off her latest ink while leaving Pilates class in Studio City, Calif. (According to PEOPLE, the tattoo is a quote from a 1910 speech by President Theodore Roosevelt, called 'Citizenship in a Republic.')

Though Cyrus has upwards of 15 tattoos, the reasoning behind them seem to have special meaning to her.

Where are Cyrus' many tattoos located? And why exactly did she get them?

One of the first tattoos Cyrus got at the age of 16 was the phrase "just breathe," on her rib cage. The singer-actress dedicated the tattoo to a family friend who suffers from cystic fibrosis.

Miley then followed up with some smaller tattoos, including an anchor on her pinky and the word “love” on her inner ear.

Later, she got one of her largest ones to date — a dream catcher on the right-hand side of her rib cage.

All in all, the bride-to-be has a lot of ink on her. In light of this, Celebuzz has pulled together a gallery of her many tattoos -- what they say and more importantly what they mean to the young Hollywood starlet.

    I have a tattoo, I also went to private, strictly religious schools from Preschool, all through high school and now go to a college with religious affiliations. Do you think that I "don't get the word of the Lord?" I assure you I do, and I am a Christian, as are my many high school classmates with tattoos. Maybe you should go read the verses in the Bible about not judging instead of making us all (Christians) seem stuck up and judgmental . . .

    She has a lot of tattoos because half of them are so small and are in the most random ass spots that it looks like she was just drawing on herself with a pen. I like the dream catcher one and the ones that actually have words. but the heart and equal sign are just sorry ass excuses of tattoos. Get something real.

    dumb fundamentalist. the bible is fiction. theodore roosevelt was a great president, i'm glad miley tatted one of his speeches on her arm.

  • Well

    Love her tattoos! And can people stop reciting a man made book.

    She suffers from addictions. When she has no more room for tattoos, she'll find another addiction.

    Do not cut your bodies for the dead, and do not mark your skin with tattoos. I am the LORD. Leviticus 19:28, The Holy Bible. Tattoos are on the people who didn't get the word of the Lord!
