Tattoo designs of stars and fairies have been with us as long as any other unknown creature and the real beginnings of their varieties varies from within different people and cultural groups. Tattoo designs of stars are one of the most searched for tattoo designs nowadays - they have a sense of eternity about them. Apart from the heart, tattoo designs of stars and nautical star tattoos look very vibrant and have a lot of scope for innovation.
They are popular as a first tattoo because tattoo designs of stars are usually small in design and they don't have to be very complicated, a simple black star can be very striking. There are many variations of star tattoos, like the nautical star tattoos and the moon star tattoos. Many people claim that these images have a powerful symbolic or metaphysical meaning. That's why stars and star tattoos became such a powerful symbol. Shooting star tattoos are a very popular image, being versatile and pretty. A shooting star tattoo can incorporate a ‘trail’ of smaller stars, which is very pretty and delicate - a great way for a tattoo to cover a slightly larger area but still remain subtle. Shooting stars are also a symbol for (short-lived) success and good luck.
The nautical star tattoo is the most masculine design amongst designs of star along with the moon star tattoos. Nautical stars are considered old school. In the early days of tattooing, they used to be popular amongst sailors, who had them for guidance and protection. The nautical star has a special meaning in the gay and lesbian community. Some gay and lesbian people have them on their wrist as a sign of their disposition.
Tattoos aim to transform the body, inscribing meaning on the blank canvas of flesh. Even lit ones have definitely lost their “rebellious" intellectual meaning, at least to a very serious degree. Tattoo designs of stars exist in most cultures in ancient times and now are just a permanent representations of who I am.
