The 20-year-old singer – who has recently been plagued by rumors claiming she and fiance Liam Hemsworth are on the outs – added to her ever-increasing collection of body art with the help of the former “LA Ink” star, who understands firsthand the stress of a public breakup.

(Remember Kat’s messy split from Jesse James?!)

“Just did the RADDEST tattoo on @MileyCyrus -a miniature rendition of a daVinci anatomical heart!” Kat Tweeted on Friday afternoon.

Kat also shared a photo collage featuring Leonardo da Vinci’s famed sketch of the human heart (the inspiration for Miley’s new ink), the resulting tattoo on Miley’s arm – still pink from the tattoo – and a closeup of the design.

The new tattoo joins Miley’s various other body art, including a heart on her little finger, an anchor on her wrist, a dreamcatcher on her ribcage, the words “Just Breathe” on the left side of her chest (in honor of a friend who died of cystic fibrosis), an equal sign on her ring finger (in support of marriage equality), the roman numerals VIIXCI on her right forearm, and a portion of President Teddy Roosevelt’s famed speech on her left arm, which reads, “So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.”
