Miley Cyrus and her brother are getting matching tattoos.

Metro Station rocker Trace Cyrus has several pieces of body art, and after getting a matching design to his singer father Billy Ray Cyrus he now can't wait until 17-year-old Miley is old enough to have her flesh inked too.

He said: "I already have a matching one with my dad, there's no reason I wouldn't do it with my siblings. Someone you're that close to, it's something that means something to you obviously, so why wouldn't you do it?"

Miley is unable to share the experience of getting a tattoo with her brother for another year, but the siblings - who are currently touring together - are happy to swap relationship tips with one another.

Single Trace told America's OK! magazine: "She helps me with my girl problems, I talk to her about boys she's talking to. She has a smart head on her shoulders and anything that she decides is going to be the right decision."

Trace, 20, also revealed he and his mother Tish are getting matching tattoos done.

He added: "My mom's going to get a ribcage tattoo that is definitely the biggest tattoo she's ever gotten. I'm definitely proud of her for that. It will definitely be a little bit different of an experience for me. I've never gone to get a tattoo with my mom ever. She's taken me to get a tattoo but we've never both gotten one at the same time."
