Tattoos are a great way of accentuating your personality. Picking the right theme to ink might be confusing, but there are lots and lots of ideas available out there to give you a wide variety to choose from. There are numerous themes that have been used in tattoos ever since the early civilizations, and still have not lost their popularity and significance. Star tattoos are one such group. Like the sun and the moon, stars have been with humans ever since they walked on the earth.
Humans watched stars in the night sky with wonder, fascinated by their beauty and the vastness to which they stretched. This might be the reason why stars were culminated into tattoos in the first place. The meaning denoted by a star depends to a great extent on the type of star. They could represent the goal of your life (everyone wants to reach for the stars) or could mean the birth of your child. Shooting stars, nautical stars, floral patterns involving stars are all different variations of the same eternal entity. Usually five-point stars are seen in tattoos. The number of points also carries some meaning. For example, a pentagram is different from the Star of David. So select your type, pick out a nice shade, and shoot for your star.
Nautical stars constitute a category of star tattoos. Historically associated with sailors, these have become popular as guides in life.
