Miley Cyrus has been under serious scrutiny for anything she does with her body. From pole dancing, recent pictures of her smoking a cigarette and near-naked images, the paparazzi know all about the singer/actress.

One thing we notice from photographs is the young star's many tattoos. Since Cyrus was 17 years of age, she began getting inked. Her father, Billy Ray, mother, and brother, Trace, all have tattoos as well. Body art seems to be a family tradition and form of expression. Many of her tattoos are devoted to her family and have deep meaning to them. Most famously is the one of an equal sign on her ring finger.

The 18 year-old has emerged as a strong advocate for LGBT rights in recent times. On Friday, Miley tweeted: "ALL LOVE is equal." Attached to the message was a link to a photograph of the new tattoo. Soon after, fans responded to her message with negative and positive comments to the young star."Where does it say in the bible to judge others?" she Tweeted back to one of her followers. "Oh right. It doesn't. GOD is the only judge honey. 'GOD is love.'"

Cyrus has previously voiced her opinion on Gay marriage a few weeks ago when the Casey Anthony verdict was delivered. "You know the world is skewed when people get away with murdering children but we can't get gay marriage legalized in the state of California." Her tattoo joins several other inks the 18-year-old has, including a dream catcher on her rib cage and a heart on her finger.
