Miley Cyrus has showed off a cartoon cat tattooed on the inside of her lip.

The 21-year-old wild child posted a picture of her latest body art on Instagram, calling it a "sad kitty" and adding the hashtag f*** yeah Tulsa.

The tattoo on the inside of her lower lip shows the face of a yellow cartoon cat with a tear below one eye.

Miley is currently on her Bangerz world tour and performed at the Bok centre in Tulsa on March 13.

It was recently revealed the singer is being sued by a man who claims he was injured building the giant tongue-shaped slide she has been using in her shows.

Miley is not the only star to have a lip tattoo. Singer Kesha has the words "suck it" tattooed on hers.
