Miley Cyrus debuted a brand new tattoo on Sunday that has some fans divided. The new ink on her right tricep features the outline of a naked body, as inspired by artist Henri Matisse's work titled "Le Nu aux oranges" ("Nude With Oranges"). The new body art also appears to have been partially inspired by the late Leonard Cohen's art and poetry book, Dance Me to the End of Love.
