The Truth Behind Miley's Tat

| Filed under: Miley Cyrus


As much shiz as we've given her this week for getting a tattoo, the meaning behind Miley's "Just Breathe" tat is pretty heartwarming.

Seems that Cyrus was inked to honor the memory of Vanessa, one of her close friends that passed away due to Cystic Fibrosis over three years ago.

And apparently "Just Breathe" is the slogan for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.


You caught us by surprise, Smiley!

Just don't go tatting boyfriends' names on your bod!

    That makes it better I suppose.. :/ It is a nice sentiment.
    But I'm still confused on the location. I guess its near the lungs like some are saying, but that must have been awkward to get.

  2. 102

    Mh, Classy right under the breast.

  3. 103

    tats are trash like trailer park miley

  4. 104

    At first I thought this said "The Truth Behind Miley's Twat"

  5. 105

    Some of you people are ridiculous. If you can see the tattoo without seeing her boob then she obviously didn't have to be naked around the tattoo artist either. I think it is a great place, all tattoos should be where you can easily cover them. I got my first tattoo at 16 and there is nothing wrong with it. I think hers is very sweet, and obviously has great meaning to her (as all tattoos should).

  6. 106

    It's over her lungs and it has deep meaning for her. . .happy for her.

  7. 107

    its sweet. she was trying to get it near her heart. hopefully now u assholes will stop ragging on her.

  8. 108

    Wow. Someday, these dim bulbs are going to be sorry they tatted all that random retarded shit on their bodies. Just because you have a reason for doing it does not make it look any less trashy and stupid.
    People, when your mother and little girls are getting tattoos please take that as a sign….TATTOOS ARE NO LONGER COOL OR EDGY. Only douches, geeks and soccer moms are still inking their bodies. TRUST.

  9. 109

    Personally, I love this tattoo. I have cystic fibrosis, and it's no walk in the park. I do a shitload of work just to be able to breathe without coughing all the time.
    Go Miley! Thank you for supporting your friend like that.
    And for the record, I think the placement is fine. You rarely see it, and it's by your lung.

  10. 110

    aww thats so sweet!! i love her!

  11. 111

    Perez being nice to Miley :O

    and she put it in that location to keep it hidden,idiots

  12. 112

    Ahh that made me cry…..

  13. 113

    its not in a bad spot, its significant if you know anything about CF. anyway, i don't see the problem with it, its not going to be visable.

  14. 114

    My name is jessica rodriguez and I am the big sister of vanessa rodriguez! Omg! She got it honor of my little sister!!!! I'm in so much shock! My family and I can't stop talking about it!

  15. 115

    The tattoo says 'just breathe' so she's clearly had it done by her ribcage and lungs. It's not she woke up one morning saying 'You know what I'm gonna do today? I'm gonna get a tattoo right by my boob!'

  16. 116

    thats nice but did she really have to get a tattoo to remember them

  17. 117

    you guys need to grow up. its perfectly legal to get a tattoo if you're 16 and have parental consent. and at least its something meaningful, not trashy and tacky. i WISH my parents were cool enough to let me get one.

  18. 118

    i got a tatto on my ribs the day i turned 18 so i dont see the big difference. maybe she wanted it there so no one could see in when she was in regular clothes

  19. 119

    Sorry, she's still way too young to be permanently marking her body, however sentimental the tatt may be.

  20. 120

    I'm actually pleased that you for once admitted to your prejudice. It's not always easy to take back what has been said.

  21. 121

    regardless, hello? She's still too young for tatoos!

  22. 122

    It's nice that she got the tat in honor of her friend but she could have waited until she was legal.

  23. sabbb says – reply to this


    the slogan for the CFF is actually "breathe easy"

  24. 124

    Her dad let his daughter get a tattoo under her tit? He must really love her….money. Who cares if it's sentimental? It's made LESS sentimental because it's by her titty.

  25. 125

    i guess its kinda a good excuse

  26. 126

    haha i good friend! wasn't it her grandfather?

  27. 127

    who cares? she obviously put it there so it wouldn't be seen every day and clearly it's personal because of her friend passing away so who gives a shit if she got it when she is 17. it is meaningful to her so people should just mind their own business.

  28. 128

    Tittay tattoo… Gross!!!!! What about a nice hefty donation for research for a cure…

  29. 129

    She is too young for a tattoo! I would never let my child get one until I was sure they were done growing–it could have ended up misshapen. If her friend died three years ago, when did she get it? I hope she wasn't that young.

  30. 130

    Since when is their an age limit for tattoos? You guys act like she took a shot of heroin or something! CALM DOWN

  31. 131

    It's nice to see celebrities fighting against CF. I, too have Cystic Fibrosis and it's nice to know people care. :)
    Keep fighting against CF!

  32. 132

    Re: hellofrog18 – uhm actually u cant say that mitchel musso (oliver oken on hannah montana) has two tattoos. one of which is on his wrist.

  33. 133

    Grow uppp.
    At least it not anywhere else [back, shoulder, arm, etc.]
    It might be there becos of the lungss. 'Just BREATHE.'
    Makes sense.
    No, I don't like her, but its like EVERYTHINGGG she does is illegal.

  34. 134

    so she put it right under her boob……………..

  35. 135

    "Just keep breathing…" from "Cast away" with Tom Hanks ?
    Love :)

  36. 136

    Wow Perez you really did make an ass of you'r self , dumbfuck

    I LOVE MILEY!!!!!!!!!! (:

  37. 137

    Re: pusspuss
    are you living up under a rock or something ? look around there's plenty of teens with tats

  38. 138

    see perez! you shouldnt go judging that till you know the facts…. i bet you feel like a dick right about now

  39. 139

    Shes not to young for a tattoo… Lots of young people have it.

  40. 140

    Isn't she underage to get a tattoo?

  41. 141

    She'll just adore it when she's over 50 and her tit sags down and covers what looks like nothing but a tire track by then.

  42. 142

    That's nice that she got a tattoo that means something, but kinda tacky place to put it no matter what age.

  43. 143

    ya thats nice or w.e but she couldnt have waited a year…..nice messsage to the young girls who look up to her fuck age restrictions do what you want when you want fuck rules

  44. 144

    Great, I've always wanted to get a tattoo saying just breathe on my wrist as I have alot of lung issues - No I don't have cf now people are probably gonna ask if I'm copying miley. Just f*cking great

  45. 145

    sexy…hot…what would u like more?…maybe a sexy video…check out w w w . u s e x e d . c o m/sexy to see her naked video

  46. x0x0x says – reply to this


    Who cares if she's 17? That's almost 18, which means she will be legal and she could do anything she wants. Like be in the porno business (not saying she would) but I'm pretty damn sure that a small tattoo is nothing at all compared to what she could be doing out there. All the people that are saying she's headed in the "wrong direction" I'd shut up because she's probably way more successful than you are and she's 17 years old. I'm not a Miley fan but it's annoying when people treat her like she's a damn 9 year old. She's almost an adult so treat her like one.

  47. 147

    I think she wanted it under her her tits because she didnt want people to see it!

  48. 148


  49. 149

    Tell me, how does this tattoo affect any of you people? She has a reason for it and it's not as if she is pointing at it or drawing attention to it… FFS everyone who is saying she is a role model for little girls, how much control do you have over your children, how about getting kids into sports and other activities away from Miley/Hannah. My kids do NOT see ms Cyrus as a role model… she barely rates a mention in my household… gawd all of you need to step back and relax

  50. 150

    Perez I knew who this girl was! my mom used to take care of her and yes it is all true! if you would like to know anything about Vanessa please send me an email and i would love to answer any questions that you have

  51. 151

    OMG!!! thts sooooo nice… I LOVE IT, i dont care if shes under age lots of people do stuff when there under age (13 yr olds drink alcohol) … its for a good cause …. (I have cystic fibrosis) It really makes me think if Miley is going to go and get loads of needles for a sick passed away friend then you know she has a good heart… if u dont think so maybe you should find out more about FEELINGS and CF (cystic fibrosis)!!!!!!!!!

  52. 152

    Re: mg1994 – What email address are we sending it 2???

  53. 153

    she isn't old enough to have a tattoo. wtf are her parents doing? why the fuck do so many young girls look up to this skank. even if the meaning behind the tattoo is nice, why under her boob? she mos def does not hold a v-card anymore!

  54. 154

    its by the lungs you douchebags. thats what cystic fibrosis affects. How about you all do some research before calling her a slut for getting a tat on her LUNGS!!! if she was really getting a tattoo just cos shes a slut, then she would have gone and got a 'tramp stamp' which are located on your back.

  55. 155

    BOOO! that is the biggest bull shit ive ever heard. sure, it has a great meaning, but now everyone is just like AWW, thats shit.
    she is still 16. and its still a tattoo.
    there are other ways to show support for a cause, its like her promise ring…she might as well as gotten the word virgin tattooed across her vag.

  56. 156

    My son has cystic fibrosis and If it would make more people aware of the condition I'd have it tattoed on my head. At least Miley has now informed a large audience of this chronic condition. For those of you who don't know what it is, look it up on the internet and after you find out about it, donate to Cystic Fibrosis and make a difference.

  57. 157

    Re: Hum0rMe – I totally agree!

  58. 158

    she is such a nicee person :) ))) . She probley put it there bcaz Disney doesnt want visible tattoos.

  59. 159

    Nice thought for her friend, but I hope she's done with tattoos now.
    However, something tells me she's only just begun with the ink.

  60. 160

    She obviously got it under her boob because it is close to her heart!
    And it could also be because it is close to her lungs.

    I'm 17 and i would get a tattoo if i could, i know heaps of my friends have them.

    Miley sounds like one of the nicest kindest people you could ever meet, and everything she does that people say is slutty, me and all other 17 year old girls do as well!

    Your all jealous bitches

  61. 161

    LOL omg
    People will find ANY way to hate on Miley Cyrus.
    She got a really sweet tattoo honoring her friend OVER HER HEART.
    Come on, she's not a baby. I know a lot of GOOD people who got tattoos around her age, who cares?

  62. 162

    heart or lungs*

    I'm glad you are waiting until a little older to get tattoos .. even though you'd rather not wait.
    I have 2 good friends who regret their tattoo choices .. both of which were gotten while teenagers.
    They both have said that they would definitely choose different body locations and different images,, if they could do them over again.
    Neither one of them can afford the big money it takes to get tattoo-removal.
    Hang on .. think of it this way .. you have a longer period of time to decide .. Remember, THEY ARE PERMANENT. You want to be sure.

  64. 164

    Bravo, Miley.

    Now, stay away from clubs.

  65. 165

    wow. way to judge perez

  66. 166

    Re: MFilma – so what she's 17 & its good that it at least has meaning. & she probably wanted a place where it could be hidden chill out.

    Dawn Callahan Kettlewell :Weird spot to put it but it's a really nice gesture.

  70. 170

    Im 15 years old, my dad died and i got the word "Dad" tattoo'd on the inside of my wrist. I almost didnt get it because i started to care what people thought about it. But then i realized that its personal and ment for ME, not anybody else. i just grew a new respect for her.

  71. 171

    She's just a slut, besides, I don't see why celebrities are allowed to be treated like they can do anything.

  72. Imy says – reply to this


    Oh, that's good of you Miley! Now can your career hurry up and burn?

  73. 173

    I have a few tribute tats in honor of family and friends, she's almost 18, big friggin deal… It's her body, if you don't like tattoos don't get one, or hover over your child while they're underage so they don't get one, if you can control them at that age!

  74. 174

    Re: Lauraxo – \
    Meh so what, when her boobs begin to sag it will be covered up, lol… I have plenty of artsy tattoos, and I joke about it all the time, but just because someone else doesn't like it does not mean we have to be ashamed or embarassed…

  75. 175

    Good thing her friend didn't die of cervical cancer ha ha! Stupid hillbilly kunt….

    Re: Catchryder

    Good one!

  77. zebra says – reply to this


    why are tattoos "trashy?" get over yourself .

  78. 178

    fisrt of all hate the bitch and who in the world wants to tatto their boob…anyways at least the bitch didnt tatto her butt crack or ass…but she did it for a cause i have to give it up to her

  79. 179

    Aww you call her smiley :D Love her she is amazing!!!

  80. 180

    …but did she have to put it there?

  81. 181

    Re: xgirrl
    Perhaps she placed it there so it's closer to her heart?

  82. 182

    Alright Lets Think About What You Are All Saying,This Is A 17 Year Old Girl And You Calling Her Names?
    She Got A Tattoo That Means Somthing ONLY People Who Have Done The Same Can Understand.
    Me And Miley Are The Same Age But Like 5 Days Apart.

    I Got 2 Tattos When I Was 15 Love On My Wrist And A Heart On My Foot.
    And My Lip Is Pierced.
    You Guys Judge Her Becuase You DOnt Have What She Has.
    Thats So Wrong.

  83. 183

    The artist would have had to hold her breast while he put it on. I bet that was fun…

  84. 184

    17 year olds can get tatts if their parents are there to sign a consent form. the tatt is located on her LUNGS not under her "titty" …. grow up and stop acting like miley is your child.

  85. 185

    i'm not a meiley fan but i can definately relate to that tattoo. i got one for my best friend who died of cancer last year. respect to miley for honouring her friend and doing her bit to promote the charity.

  86. 186

    Still not okay. Why not donate some of your millions to CF research instead?

  87. 187

    It's meant to be near her heart so her friend is always on her heart. Leave her alone.

  88. 188

    Even though I don't agree with the things she does…I think this is really nice and sweet of her to do that. She is a good friend of this girl (Vanessa) But It dosent change the way I think about her. Maybe just a little. :)

  89. 189

    + I think she should have put it somehwere else. :)

  90. 190

    Just teaches you to talk shit before you know, right, Mario?

  91. 191

    ok… RETARDS….

    1. Miley's friend died 3 years ago and she's just now getting the tattoo, this means that she's probably been thinking about getting it for a while and was going to get it anyway.

    2. All of you people saying that under her boob is a bad place for her to get it… Ok… Cystic Fibrosis is an inherited LUNG disorder. She probably got it over her LUNG.

    3. Stop tripping!!! I don't even like Miley but even I know that this is unnecessary heat. So what her parents let her get the tattoo? She got it to commemorate the passing of her friend and she got it in a place that represents the cause of the pain. It's not like she got a random butterfly over her ass.

  92. 192

    Her business to begin with and she should not have to explain what she has tattoo'd on her body. Now trying to get into club's and not being of age is a different story but again she isn't the first teenager to try this and won't be the last. This just show's that no matter how grown up she look's she is still just a normal kid trying to get away with stuff.

  93. 193

    shes 16! thats rediculous! i can't believe that her parents gave her consent to geta tattoo, shes not 18 yet. and couldn't find a better spot miley?

  94. 194

    Oh, look PEREZ IS WRONG. Just like how is is wrong about everything else "bad" she does. What a douche. Miley on the other hand is a sweetheart & doesn't derserve all the shit that is said about her.

  95. 195

    Re: BlahBlah24 – Did you ever think it's in that spot so it can be hidden ? LOL, of course not. There is nothing wrong with the placement, she has it there because that's wear your lungs are genius …

  96. 196

    Re: pusspuss – Too bad that's not for you to decide …

  97. barb says – reply to this


    AS usual your wrong but won't admit it. It's not your body she can tatoo what ever she wants.

  98. 198

    I really think just breath was an adaptation of justin.

  99. Eve29 says – reply to this


    ok thats real nice of her to do:) BUT UNDER HER BOOB WOW!SHE SHOULD OF PUT IT SOME WHERE ELSE!

  100. 200

    thats nice, but she really should have found another place to put it :p
