Trace Cyrus gets a Native American tattoo on his head

It seems Miley’s brother Trace Cyrus is running out of un-tatted real estate! The ink-loving singer added to his extensive collection of skin art with a rather large and intricate tattoo of a Native American on the left side of his head. He shared the above photo yesterday along with the tweet, “Got my head tatted today! Excuse all the ink on my face. And yes this hurt!!!”

And just in case you have never seen the portable tattoo gallery that is Trace Cyrus’ body, here are front and back photos, including his spinal ode to Geronimo:

Trace’s admiration of Native Americans follows in the footsteps of his dad Billy Ray Cyrus who talked about the two Native American tattoos he has on his arms during his appearance on The View in 2011:

“I always have great deal respect for Native Americans. I am part Cherokee myself. Chief Joseph gave a wonderful speech years and years ago called ‘From where the sun now stands I will fight now no more forever,” said Billy Ray Cyrus. “Native Americans part of their belief was taking care of the mother earth.”

Trace isn’t Billy Ray’s birth son (he was dopted after Billy Ray married his birth mother Leticia “Tish” Finley Cyrus), so I’m not sure if he has Native American roots or not. Actually, I suppose I do know his hair now has Native American roots!
