Miley Cyrus is no stranger to tattoos – or midriff for that matter.
So the former Hannah Montana star debuted both this week. The 19-year-old singer and actress showed off a new tattoo she got which pays homage to President Theodore Roosevelt.
The tattoo is located on her forearm and it’s a quote that President Roosevelt stated during a 1910 speech.
“So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat,” it reads, E! Online reports.
The full excerpt from the tattoo comes directly from here:
"The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat."
The NY Daily News reports that Cyrus has 14 tattoos so far.
She stated in 2010 the importance of having meaning behind the tattoos she gets, telling Harper’s Bazaar “I could never get a meaningless tattoo, but I think that if you’re doing something that’s important, that’s significant in your life, it takes some of the pain away.”
