MILEY, DEAR, THAT IS NOT WHY GOD GAVE YOU SKIN

TATTOOS: THEY'RE NOT 
JUST FOR BIKERS ANYMORE!

Miley Cyrus has grown bored of butchering her hair and tweeting banal messages to the world and has taken up a much more intelligent hobby: public-service tattoos. Yes, the young star has begun inking deep presidential thoughts on her arm. 
(I used to do this before exams in university until I ran out of arm space. To this day, you can ask me almost anything about first year psychology, fine arts or women's studies, and I can roll up my sleeve and give you the answer in seconds.) 

What's even cuter is that her fiance, Liam Hemsworth, has now followed suit with a nonsensical tat of his own. Again with the presidential quotes. 
Hey you two, know what I think? I think you need to tattoo something else on your arms. Reminders, perhaps. Bits of homely advice, such as "Do something useful with my money" or "This will all be illegible when my skin is 80 years old."

You know, if you have so much money and time that you run out of sensible ways to spend it, you should be forced to donate it to a worthy cause. I'm going to have that tattooed on my left buttock and see if I can persuade Obama to think about it...

INK-OMPREHENSIBLE: Miley's latest of 16 tatts is a quote from a Teddy Roosevelt speech. It reads:so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” Which is in no way reconcilable with someone who rose to fame as Hannah Montana.
