We're not sure what it is about Miley Cyrus that convinces the people around her to spontaneously get tattoos, but it's becoming a pattern.
And now we can add extreme sports pro Shaun White to the list.
That's right. In addition to the already bizarre list of people that Cyrus has coerced into getting inked (like that weird Stephen Baldwin thing that happened...) White has officially joined the club. Apparently things got weird at an Easter party at Cyrus' home and somehow- maybe by like, yelling aggressively with that extremely abrasive voice or perhaps slipping a nip, Cyrus talked White into getting a tiny tattoo on his forearm.
White- now, in addition to his own collection, has a small Miley-induced piece on the outside of his right forearm. That small tattoo, strangely, is of Wayne Coyne- lead singer of band The Flaming Lips- inside a bubble. I know what you're thinking. What the fuck?
Weird, right? Okay, but here's the thing. Cyrus already has a weird but kinda cute friendship with 55 year old Flaming Lips lead singer Wayne Coyne, and THEY have several matching tattoos together- including a large portrait of her sweet puppy that passed away a little over a year ago. After collaborating on a Beatles cover a while back, the two hit it off and bond over music, love, partying, and wearing lots of tie dye. Miley also rocks several tribute tattoos to Coyne and his band. Needless to say, they're pretty tight, and Miley is pretty damn enthusiastic about Coyne and his work.
The unlikely, weird-but-kinda-cute kinship between Cyrus and Coyne is cool and all, and I think they should get all of the matching tattoos their little hippie hearts desire. Who doesn't love a good friendship tat? But convincing White to get one too...? I don't know. Maybe she's just trying to spread the love, or maybe White just has a hard time saying no to a pretty lady... We may never know. But he is now officially on the ever-growing list of celebrities somehow coerced by Miley Cyrus to get potentially regrettable tattoos.
I am, admittedly, pretty anxious to see who Miley's next tattoo victim will be though. Guess we'll just have to wait it out and see who's up next.
