Miley Cyrus: 'Tattoo Was Painless'
The Hannah Montana star had the words Just Breathe etched below her heart in her mother's handwriting last year, sparking controversy as several U.S. states forbid those under the age of 18 from getting inked.
However, the actress/singer insists she didn't get the tattoo on a whim - it's a tribute to a pal who died of cystic fibrosis in 2007, and her grandfathers who both died of lung cancer.
She tells Harper's Bazaar, "It really doesn't hurt if you're thinking about the meaning. I could never get a meaningless tattoo, but I think that if you're doing something that's important, that's significant in your life, it takes some of the pain away."
"It reminds me not to take things for granted. I mean breathing - that was something none of them could do, the most basic thing. And I put it near my heart, because that is where they will always be."
