We’re always ragging on newly-engaged Miley Cyrus for getting new attention-grabbing tattoos… but now there’s a guy who’s giving Miley a run for her millions. Because he has 15 tattoos of Miley herself, and I don’t think he’s kidding. @MileyCyrusCarlx is a grown man and an unapologetically diehard Miley fan — and I just realized, is there even a name for her fanbase? — who has covered his skin in her lyrics and even her face.
I feel like I can’t look this guy in the eyes, because his fervor for the LOL star is legitimately terrifying. You’ll note that he’s got her song titles “Breakout” and “Obsessed” tattooed on both forearms. (Not, like I originally thought, his promise to break out of the mental hospital he’ll inevitably get committed to, because of how much he adores her.)
Note that he’s already wearing a baseball cap with Miley’s signature on it, and yet he still felt compelled to get her scrawled name on his hand. Scratch that, on both hands. (OK, it’s kind of a cool tattoo idea, in general. I’ve found myself growing more amenable to text tattoos. But this is still creepy!)
Up until now, he had a slim chance of being able to walk around shirtless this summer… then he unveiled the collarbone tattoo. Really? Enjoy the heatwave, buddy.
And what collection would be complete without a decent approximation of Miley’s face? (Of course, the coloring makes her look like some kind of inquisitive zombie.) Perhaps recognizing that his fifteen minutes of internet fame are ticking away, MileyCyrusCarlx has tweeted his idol an old pic of her from her rocker-grunge days, promising that this will be his next tat.
I hate to say it, but maybe it’s a good thing that Miley is getting married. Then Liam Hemsworth can use his fighting skills from Catching Fire to keep this super-fan from skinning Miley and wearing her. Because you know that’s the only way he can go from here.
