Miley Cyrus's new tattoo

Miley Cyrus had an equals sign tattooed on her ring finger, as a sign of support for the gay marriage movement.

I strongly believe that gay people should have all the same rights and obligations that hets do, including marriage, and I'm fairly heavily tattooed, but this leaves me nonplussed. It's not the tattoo itself; it's the quality and the fact that she already has another crappy little black tattoo on the same hand. The girl's not even legal drinking age yet, and she's already covering herself in poorly done little tattoos. With all the money and fame she enjoys, can't she get a decent tattoo? She should be able to have Ed Hardy himself (and no matter what you think of his clothing line, the man was rightfully worshipped as a tattoo artist back in the Modern Primitives day) fly out to her home to make her a really nice piece of art, instead of this jailhouse-looking thing. Do Miley and Tish sit around giving each other tattoos in the evenings, like a pair of cellmates?

I may be thick, but how does tattooing an equal sign on your middle finger show support for gay rights?

Is there some middle-finger usage that I'm unaware of?

Stupid Hannah Montana chick.

I'm not gay, and I don't particularly care who pooks whom, nor what gender the pooker or the pookee is. But I have to know, as I expose my middle finger quite often... Will I be offending anyone if I don't have a middle-finger tat? What about a finger-moustache? Can I use a sharpie, because, 1. I'm a wuss, and B. I don't want any permanent marks on me.

The equals sign is the symbol of "Marriage Equality." Out here in SF there's a big equals sign over the Marriage Equality headquarters and people have bumper stickers of equals signs. But the problem with the local logo is that they draw the equals sign so thick. It didn't even read to me as an equals sign; about eight years or so ago, I asked the Sober Husband, "What is that thing I see around, two rectangles?"

And look again.. you can see, despite how she is holding the finger outstretched, it's the ring finger, not the middle finger. So flip people off with abandon.

Hmmm... Your right.

I was kind of looking forward to the moustache tat.

What you should really do is model yourself after Harmon Leon (my idol!) and run around with psycho fake tattoos written on your knuckles with Sharpie, e.g., he writes "GUNS" on both hands and then goes on a job interview. http://getglue.com/books/republican_like_me_infiltrating_red_state_white_ass_blue_suit_america/harmon_leon

I have laughed so hard at his writing that I have choked.

That's a tattoo?! I thought she cut herself and it was getting weirdly infected.
