Miley Cyrus seems to be enjoying her newfound freedom.
Tattoo artist Winter Stone posted a photo on Sunday of a new tattoo on the “Mother’s Daughter” singer. The ink, which rests just above Cyrus’ knuckles on her right hand, says “freedom” in a thin, delicate script.
The tattoo comes at a time of major change for Cyrus, who split from her husband and longtime love Liam Hemsworth in August after less than a year of marriage. The two met in 2009 and had dated on and off since 2010.
The meaning could also be tied to lyrics from Cyrus’ song “Mother’s Daughter,” which Stone cites in his Instagram caption:
“Don’t fuck with my freedom / I came up to get me some / I’m nasty, I’m evil / Must be something in the water or that I’m my mother’s daughter.”
In addition to Cyrus’ “Freedom” tattoo, she also got a handwritten note from Yoko Ono inked on her left shoulder, which reads “I’m proud of U. Yoko.”
The singer has gotten multiple tattoos that seemingly allude to her split from Hemsworth, including a lyric on her arm from the Pixies song “The Thing” that says, “My head was feeling scared, but my heart was feeling free.”
Cyrus also sports a depiction of a man-eating snake that she got around the time her former husband filed for divorce.
After her split from Hemsworth, Cyrus dated “The Hills: New Beginnings” star Kaitlynn Carter, who had split from fellow reality star Brody Jenner. Once they called it quits in September, Cyrus began dating Australian singer Cody Simpson.
“I’m very happy. We are very, very happy,” Simpson said of his relationship with Cyrus at a Tiffany’s event in October, People reported. “She’s creative. She’s very passionate about what she does, and I’m very similar in that sense. That’s why we get along so well.”
Hemsworth has also moved on and has been linked to fellow Australian actor Maddison Brown, who starred in the CW’s reboot of the ’80s soap opera “Dynasty.”
