Miley Cyrus has added some more ink to her body.
The “Wrecking Ball” singer got a personal visit from Bang Bang, a local NYC tattoo artist, while hanging out with friends in the Big Apple yesterday. Miley’s latest tats include the words “Love Yer Brain” on one of her forearms.
“She knew exactly where it was going to go,” Bang Bang tells E! News exclusively. “She wanted real thin lines, almost like handwriting, but sloppy, not super-neat. She had a bunch of tattoos, and has tried to get that thin clean line. So the font we found is actually called the ‘Skinny.’”
“It’s from her favorite band, The Flaming Lips,” he explained of the phrase. “It’s really just about advice about taking care of yourself and taking care of your temple.”
Miley also got a tiny moon on the inside of her other arm.
“She’s awesome,” Bang Bang added. “She’s down-to-earth. She’s so cool.”
But Miley wasn’t just on the receiving end of fresh ink, she also tattooed Bang Bang! The pop star tattooed the same moon shape on Bang Bang’s thumb. “It’s not a perfect tattoo, but it’s pretty good for a first time. She just dove right in,” Bang Bang dished. “She had the most difficult body part. The leg’s pretty easy, but the thumb is really difficult.”
Miley and Bang Bang shared pics of the process on Instagram. “I turned @mileycyrus Into a tattoo artist today,” he wrote.
Miley also posted a funny photo of herself and Bang Bang with the caption, “BFF tats with @bangbangnyc.”
