Miley Cyrus Honours Father

20 Mar 2017

She did so with a little ink

Miley Cyrus has always shared a close bond with her father, and has now commemorated it permanently.

Cyrus has added a more sentimental tattoo to her growing collection of body art. Inked onto the inside of her right foot is now the word DAD in capital letters. It appears her father, country singer and actor Billy Ray approves of his daughter's fresh ink, after sharing a snap of it on his Twitter page.

"This may be the best Tattoo i've ever seen @mileycyrus," he captioned the picture.

The Singerhas quite the collection of tattoos, which include the image of a marijuana leaf, an avocado, an outline of the planet Saturn, and an illustrated version of Australian spread Vegemite, her fiance Liam Hemsworth's favourite snack food.

It's not the only family-related tattoo featured on Miley's body - she previously honoured her grandmother by having her portrait permanently drawn on the inside of her right forearm.

Miley, 24, met Australian actor Liam on the set of 2010 movie The Last Song and they became engaged in 2012.

They called off their plans to wed and split in 2013, only to reconcile in late 2015, and in October last year, Miley finally confirmed their engagement was back on during an appearance on America's The Ellen DeGeneres Show, on which she revealed she only wears her gold and diamond sparkler because it makes Liam, 27, happy.

They make such a cute couple!
