Miley Cyrus may just be 18 years old, but she’s already a trendsetter and a definite tattoo lover as she’s already got 7. The Disney diva isn’t shy of expressing herself through body art as the latest addition to her tattoos, 7 to count, is a tattoo which is supposed to show support for gay marriage.
Miley Cyrus’s new tattoo, an equal sign “=” tatted on her ring finger from her right hand, stands for Miley’s belief that we are all equal, thus gay people should have the right as everyone else to be legally married. Many celebrities have decided to publicly show support for gay marriage. One of the most popular couples in Hollywood to show support by declaring not to tie the knot until everyone has the right to do so, is Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.
The bold statement made by Miley Cyrus via her Twitter account, where she tweeted a picture of her new tattoo and the phrase “ALL LOVE is equal”, triggered a massive wave of comments, not all positive. It seems that Miley drew inspiration for her new tattoo from the campaign launched by the Gay and Lesbian Rights Lobby, titled All Love Is Equal.
This is not the first time Miley shows her support for the gay community as in July, when the infamous Casey Anthony case was closed, Miley tweeted: “You know the world is skewed when people get away with murdering children, but we cant get gay marriage legalized in the state of California.”
Miley Cyrus’s Twitter message wasn’t appreciated by all her fans, so when one of them decided to tell Miley “look up Leviticus, 1 Corinthians. Read both chapters and tell me where God says homosexuality, incest, and polygamy is ok?”, Miley decided to backfire and give a response:
“@MileyCyrusLuver where does it say in the bible to judge others? Oh right. It doesn’t. GOD is the only judge honey. ‘GOD is love’”
Many celebrities love tattoos and it seems that Miley is one of them as not too long ago she inked an anchor on her wrist. Because Miley was under age when she got her first tattoo, as tattoos are illegal for those under 18, her parents signed a consent form, allowing their daughter to get inked. Her passion for body art include other tattoo designs such as: heart on her little finger, the words “Just Breathe” on the left side of her chest, a dreamcatcher on her ribcage, the word LOVE on the inside of her ear and a cross inside her ring finger.
Do you think Miley should have expressed her option in a different manner?
