In an effort to distance herself from her innocent Hannah Montana image, Miley Cyrus has not hesitated to show her provocative side. In recent photographs, the 17-year-old singer can be seen confidently flaunting her newly acquired tattoo while donning a skimpy bikini. Clearly eager to break free from her fictional alter-ego, Miley spent a leisurely day at the luxurious Fontainebleau Resort in Miami Beach, taking a break after wrapping up her successful Wonder World world tour.
Looking radiant in rosy hues: Miley Cyrus unwinds beside a sun-kissed pool in the vibrant city of Miami, Florida on the previous day.
Fresh ink: Her bikini top revealed a visible tattoo reading ‘Just Breathe’, catching everyone’s eyes. However, it wasn’t the revealing neon pink two-piece that grabbed all the attention; it was the bold black inked words ‘Just Breathe’ on her ribcage, positioned just beneath her left breast.
Curiously, she seemed to be recounting the details of the design to her friend, animatedly gesturing towards it after being photographed. Legally speaking, Miley shouldn’t even have a tattoo as she is still under 18, which is the minimum age required to get inked in the United States.
Chilling out: The teenager of 17 engages in casual conversations with her pals. Nevertheless, her brother Trace spilled the beans about a group tattoo plan among the Cyrus clan, potentially granting Miley the green light to acquire one with her renowned country singer father, Billy Ray.
According to a fan’s recent blog post, it was speculated that her tattoo served as a heartfelt tribute to a young girl named Vanessa, who sadly lost her battle with cystic fibrosis in 2007. During her time at a hospital in Los Angeles, Cyrus formed an instantaneous bond with Vanessa and considered her to be one of her closest companions.
Sun enthusiast: The popular Disney actress was seen soaking up the sun, working on her tan.
Miley’s agent did not provide any information today regarding whether her tattoo was a permanent or temporary one.
Later that day, Miley was captured in photographs as she left the resort, wearing a Jonas Brothers t-shirt as a tribute to her ex-boyfriend, Nick Jonas.
Currently, she is in a relationship with Liam Hemsworth, a 19-year-old Australian actor and former Neighbours star, whom she met while working on the Disney film The Last Song.
However, it is worth noting that Miley had previously dated Nick Jonas, the youngest member of the musical sibling trio, and is believed to have been her first love. Their relationship lasted from June 2006 to December 2007.
Remaining a fan: Miley was later observed donning a Jonas Brothers tee, hinting at her continued amicability with her former flame Nick. Expressing her carefree spirit, Miley proudly flaunts her latest tattoo while strolling around in a vibrant hot pink bikini.
