Miley Cyrus has a new tattoo to add to her collection of body art, and the latest ink seems to be a nod to her troubled relationship with Liam Hemsworth.
Plagued by breakup rumors in the last week, Miley went to celebrity tattoo artist Kat Von D to get a heart tattooed on herself. But not just any heart — it’s the anatomical heart drawn by Leonardo da Vinci.
Many people see the tattoo — and the fact that Miley Cyrus is wearing her heart on her sleeve, so to speak — as a nod to her relationship with Hemsworth.
The rumors of their breakup circulated when Miley was spotted this week without her engagement ring. Combined with past rumors of infidelity on Liam’s part and some public relationship drama that Miley shared on Twitter, the ring incident led many to believe that her relationship with Hemsworth had reached its end.
But Miley later revealed that she wasn’t breaking it off with Liam, just getting the ring fixed up a bit.
The public rumors obviously irked Miley, who tweeted: “The fact that we live in a world which condones the stripping of basic human rights (dignity, privacy, etc…) of people because of their status, is very sad to me. We need to have higher standards for ourselves as people and a society. Please remember that before you pick up a tabloid. Don’t fuel the fire or promote the bullying and ridicule of your fellow man.”
Fresh off of this emotional week, Miley Cyrus decided a new tattoo was the best remedy. She also picked a good person to do it — Kat Von D knows a bit about public relationship drama.
On Saturday the L.A. Ink star tweeted a picture of Miley’s tattoo.

Kat included a picture of Miley’s new tattoo as well.
Miley Cyrus has a number of other tattoos, including a heart on her little finger, a dreamcatcher on her ribcage, and the words “Just Breathe” on the left side of her chest, in honor of a friend who died of cystic fibrosis.
