Miley Cyrus, the poster child for holding onto relevance for dear life, found a new way to grab our attention this weekend, and it involved a tattoo. I fear she’s been influenced by Justin Bieber and will just pop into a tattoo parlor whenever she feels the world’s eyes start to leave her. Luckily she hasn’t reached the tattoo sleeve phase, but it would appear she has reached the “sad cat emoji on the inside of her lower lip” phase. As you can see above, Miley put a crying yellow kitty right on the inside of her lip, because AHH CRAZY. But alas, there’s a chance it’s not even real. OR IS IT?
Miley posted a Twitter photo on Friday of herself in a bathtub with a washcloth over her face. She added “#OUCHYBOOBOO.” That would suggest there was some pain involved, right? Which would mean it’s real and permanent. Her friend Katy Weaver also posted an Instagram of her and Miley showing off their lip ink and calling them “tattoos.” But then early this morning Miley posted a new Twitter photo showing off the status of the tat, and the color has already started to fade.

The fan responses to the post aren’t exactly very helpful in figuring out the permanent or non-permanent status of the tat. They range from bragging about knowing it wasn’t real to being surprised it faded so fast. I myself know next to nothing about inner lip tattoos, besides that they look extremely painful and showing them off seems very inconvenient. I was just glad she spared her poor tongue the pain of getting inked. That tongue’s been through so much already, I don’t know if it would survive something that traumatic. It might just give up forever and detach from her mouth. RUN, TONGUE, RUN! BE FREE! And then maybe help us decide if this tattoo is the real deal, because I’m so not sure.
