Miley Cyrus Gets Tattoo in Support of Gay Rights
Miley Cyrus is showing her support for the gay community with her latest tattoo. The former 'Hannah Montana' starlet showed off her seventh piece of ink on her official Twitter page on Friday, July 29 along with the message, "All LOVE is equal."
18-year-old Cyrus got an equal sign tattooed on her ring finger. If the finger is in fact her left ring finger, Miss Miley is taking her equal rights message one step further by getting this particular digit tatted -- this is the finger that is reserved for wedding and engagement rings.
Some sources like The Daily Mail are saying that this tattoo might also signify The All Love is Equal campaign recently launched by Gay and Lesbian Rights Lobby. However, Cyrus has also been outspoken about gay rights in the past. When Casey Anthony was found 'not guilty' on murder charges a few weeks ago, Cyrus 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."
Cyrus has never been shy about voicing her thoughts, and this tattoo is just one more way the singer can express her personal beliefs. It's always great to see pop stars speak out for LGBT rights, especially stars who have a large influence on younger generations. The equal sign joins Cyrus' other pieces of body art, including a heart on her pinky finger (pictured), a dream catcher on her ribcage, and an anchor on her wrist.
