History of Nautical Star Tattoos

 


Visitors: 611

The nautical star tattoo has a long history that started at least a century ago. Many sailors use the stars to guide them and to navigate the waters, and that is why many of them, but also the military, decided to get nautical star tattoos. It has become a lucky charm for them. Many of the sailors got those tattoos to ensure a safe return back home, since many of them were quite superstitious. The military also uses that tattoo for the same reason. Since they use the North Pole star, but also the compass rose, they combined the two to make a unique tattoo. This tattoo for them is a hopeful symbol, meaning that they can always find their way back home.

But over the years, other groups have stared using the nautical star tattoo. Since the 1940's and 50's, the nautical star tattoo has been used by homosexuals to indicate their *** preferences. It was more popular among the lesbians and it was a good way for them to recognize each other. Usually the tattoo was small and placed on the inside of the wrist, that way it could easily be hidden with a watch.

Finally there are groups of punk rock and hardcore music that like the nautical star tattoo. The design is attributed to Sailor Jerry, which has become very popular recently. They also think that the tattoo is “cool" and that it brings them a more meaningful path of life and will give them to right direction.
