PHOTOS Miley Cyrus’ Leonardo Da Vinci heart tattoo by Kat Von D

Miley Cyrus heart tattoo right forearm

Miley Cyrus got very upset with the media last week after reports circulated that she and fiance Liam Hemsworth had split up. Adding fuel to the fire, Miley was later spotted out and about without her engagement ring, which she later explained was because she was having it repaired. “I am so sick of La,” Miley tweeted on March 6, “And sick of the lies that come with it. I didn’t call off my wedding. Taking a break from social media. #draining”

Although it appears that Miley will figuratively be trying harder to hide her heart, she is literally doing quite the opposite by getting a new heart tattoo by none other than LA Ink‘s Kat von D herself! But the heart tattoo is not your typical cartoonish fare — Miley went all Hannah Italiannah by getting an elaborate (albeit diminutive) recreation of one of Leonard da Vinci’s anatomical illustrations of the human heart from the 16th century!

Kat tweeted the photo above along with the excited words, “Just did the RADDEST tattoo on @MileyCyrus -a miniature rendition of a daVinci anatomical heart! ❤”

The new “two hearts” tattoo is on Miley’s right forearm just below her mysterious VIIXCI Roman numeral tattoo.

For those diligent Cyrusologists, here is a better quality image of the original Leonard da Vinci heart illustration, which dates from approximately 1510:

    She got ripped off; the tattooer didn’t do a very good job of getting it even close to spot on.

      Ummmm Kat Von D did a pretty damn good job on it.

      • Rachelle

        I agree^^ it is a damn good job considering she did a miniaturization of the original she still got a TON of the detail work it needed..which makes a damn good tattoo job

    • I agree. Also, its not going to age very well.

  • LeAnn

    She never got the Roman numerals fixed? That’s not how Roman numerals are written.
