Miley Cyrus' tattoo is a constant reminder never to take life for granted.
The Hannah Montana star recently had "Just Breathe" etched under her left breast as a tribute to her late grandfathers and one of her closest friends, who died of cystic fibrosis, and gets her inspiration from it.
She said: "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."
Although Cyrus, 17, is afraid of needles, she insisted she didn't feel any pain because the tattoo meant something to her.
She told Harper's Bazaar magazine: "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."
