We all know Miley Cyrus likes a tattoo or two. But her most recent inking has really got people talking.
The 23-year-old debuted her latest piece of body art yesterday, sharing a close-up snap on her Instagram page.
Miley’s photo saw her lying in bed as she held her arm up to the camera, perfectly displaying the teeny-tiny planet design in the middle of her forearm.

She’d captioned the photo: ‘Permaaaa skinnnnn arrrrrttttt by daaaa mosssst bad a$$ @laurenwinzer #lilbbjupiter [sic].’
Ooh. Jupiter, eh? Except… wait a second. That does NOT look like Jupiter.
Miley’s etching shows a planet with a white ring around it. Which sounds more like Saturn, right?
In case you bunked physics at school, Saturn has a prominent ring system around it, while Jupiter is generally pictured standing alone.
Miley’s followers couldn’t help pointing this out, with comments including: ‘LOLOL THATS SATURN,’ ‘That is Saturn not Jupiter,’ and: ‘That’s Saturn.’
However, others were quick to argue that Jupiter does actually have its own ring system. Also known as the Jovian ring system, its faint and mainly consists of dust.

Get ready for a science lesson… it has four main components, a thick inner torus of particles known as the ‘halo ring’, a relatively bright (but very thin) ‘main ring’ and two wide, thick and faint outer ‘gossamer rings’.

One of Miley’s fans said: ‘Can none of you read? Or use Google? Jupiter has 4 known rings.’
But another hit back: ‘Jupiter does in fact have a ring system but they’re insignificant compared to Saturn’s. Either way stop ruining space please thank youuu.’
This is kinda true, considering Saturn is the only planet ever usually depicted with its rings.
Hmmm. Who knew a tattoo could cause such dramz, eh?
