Miley Cyrus seems pretty hell-bent on losing her damn mind on a daily basis, and her latest move is a rather hilarious one. Miley is so badass that she just loves tattoos, and her new one says something pretty ironic, considering its owner: “LOVE YER BRAIN”. Uhh…
There are so many treasure troves to delve into here. First of all, there’s the spelling of “your” as “yer” – very country bumpkin, nice tip of the hat to her redneck background, etc. Then there’s the fact that Miley Cyrus – a woman who is very much into causing all the synapses in her brain (as well as in the brains of anyone watching her) rapidly misfire – has got a tattoo calling for deeper thought and homage to the wonderful organ that is the human brain. Something just doesn’t match up there.
Also, not sure what’s going on with the hair lately. I know it’s an awkward time when you’re growing out a short ‘do, but this is like, Miley goes kawaii but without the cuteness (so not kawaii at all).
Anyhoo, Miley got this done at Bang Bang in NYC, where all the celebs go.
From US Weekly:
“Miley reached out to me as a spur of the moment invitation,” Bang Bang, who has inked Rihanna, Justin Bieber, and Katy Perry, tells Us Weekly. “I went over to an apartment of a friend of hers. They were having a fun little pool party with a small group and looked like they were having a great time.”
“She wanted to get ‘Love Yer Brain’ tattooed on her arm,” the artist continued. “It’s her favorite Flaming Lips song and she liked the message.” Cyrus has been collaborating with the Flaming Lips in recent weeks, hanging out with frontman Wayne Coyne and recording a music video with the band called “Blonde SuperFreak Steals the Magic Brain.”
Ohhh, okay, it’s a flaming lips song. I get it… sorta. I really don’t get the bizarro relationship between Miley and Wayne Coyne, though. It’s weird and makes me sorta uncomfortable.
As for “Bang Bang” himself, way to lose your dignity as a tattoo artist (and a human being?), bro. Telling US Weekly that Miley was having a “little pool party” and “looked like they were having a great time”? But wait – there’s more!
“We spent a few hours designing it together, making sure the font and everything looked good,” he said. “The tattoo itself went by very quickly. When we finished she was like, ‘Oh man, I want to get something else now!’”
Cyrus, 21, went on to do just that. “She decided she wanted to get a little moon,” Bang Bang told Us. “When she said that, I told her I’d been thinking about getting a moon myself for a while now, so we got them together. I tattooed her first, it went quick and then I gave her the tattoo gun and taught her how to use it.”
“I actually pranked her,” he tells Us Weekly exclusively. “When she went to first put the tattoo needle to my skin I screamed like it really hurt and she jumped up shaking! She took a walk around and settled down. We laughed about it after she tattooed the moon on my finger. She actually did a really good job.”
This is hardly the last set of tattoos that Cyrus has planned for her oft-exposed body. “We’re talking about doing some more tattoos together later,” Bang Bang added. “We had a nice little visit, she was a great client.”
This guy sounds like a real prize piece – which is to say nothing of Miley, of course. A grown man fangirling out over a 20-year-old girl just seems slightly wrong. Do none of these people have anything better to do with their time? I mean, tattoos are fine – I have a couple small ones myself – but the things Miley is permanently putting on her body will probably be rather regrettable if she ever comes out of the drug-fuelled haze that made her get them in the first place.
