Miley Cyrus just added her 23rd tattoo over the weekend; this one a tribute to her late-dog Floyd, who died mysteriously while she was on her Bangerz Tour. Miley has one other “tribute tattoo” to a family member. Guess who?

Floyd died in May, and Miley went to pieces.

At one of her concerts she had roadies erect a massive inflatable statue of her dog–it actually looked like the RCA Victor pooch– and literally worshiped at its feet. (see the pic here).

“I wanna sleep, but all I can do is cry. I never wanna go home to a house where Floyd isn’t running & playing. how do I get thru this?” she wrote on Twitter at the time.

“I feel physically sick & I am so emotionally and physically exhausted.”

Miley, 21, has since gotten a new pooch, but wanted a way to remember Floyd. So why not a tattoo/ She had 22 already. So she got one at a Los Angeles house party.

It was reportedly designed by Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne. The tattoo featured a drawing of Floyd encircled by the quote “with a little help from my fwends.”

Coyne and another friend got a matching tattoos. Call it the Floyd Sisterhood.

Miley documented the whole thing on Instagram.

The tattoo is located on her left ribcage under her arm, next to her first tattoo. It reads: “Just Breathe,” a slogan from a cystic fibrosis campaign. Or, a Pearl Jam song, take your pick.

Needless to say, Miley couldn’t help flashing a little boob. Actually, a lot of boob, but in keeping with Instagram’s policy on nudity, she obscured her nipple.

She got her last tattoo last November to pay honor to another family member. No, it’s not daddy Billy Ray or momma Tish, but her granny! (See it here)
