Rocker Trace Cyrus has added to his tattoo collection with an inking of country icon Willie Nelson.

Miley Cyrus' half-brother is covered with body art, and in May (12) he stunned fans by unveiling a sprawling tattoo of an American Indian complete with headdress on the side of his skull.

On Tuesday (25Sep12) he went under the needle once again - and he kept his Twitter followers updated throughout the session to have Nelson's portrait inked on his leg.

In a series of posts, he writes, "It's going down. Willie Nelson will soon be on my leg forever. Getting tatted by chrisgarciatattoos in my crib!"
