Miley Cyrus' New Tattoo: Singer Gets Inked By Kat Von D

Miley Cyrus showed off the fresh ink she got from celebrity tattoo artist Kat von D Thursday in a photo posted to her Twitter page. "ratta tat tat," the 20-year-old singer wrote, sharing a picture of her tattoo -- a pair of arrows crossed over each other on her elbow.

The cross-hatched arrows are a symbol of friendship, according to Kat von D, who also shared with her fans a close-up of her latest work. "Loved tatooing @MileyCyrus yesterday! Simple symbols of friendship make beautiful tattoos," she wrote on her Instagram page.

Cyrus -- who has matching tattoos with fiancé Liam Hemsworth -- told Harper's Bazaar magazine in 2010 that the pain from getting inked was relative to its significance. "It really doesn't hurt if you're thinking about the meaning," she said. "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."
