Star tattoo designs are pretty common, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t get one. It is possible to make a star tattoo design different from those we see all the time. Many parts of the world have their legends and myths about stars and shooting stars. Here are some ideas for star tattoo designs and shooting star tattoos.
Types of stars that can be used in a star tattoo design: There are many types of stars, most often based on religion, and each of them look slightly different from the rest. Here are different options for a star tattoo design or a shooting star tattoos:
The pentagram: This five-pointed star is often upside down. It has a circle around it, connecting all five points to the circle. The upside pentagram often represents the devil. On the opposite end, the pentagram can also represent magicians. The pentagram brings balance and protection and can be used as such in a star tattoo design.
The Star of David: This star, from Jewish faith, represents the fact that divinity and mortals are connected. The Star of David was made to look like the shield that David used when he killed the giant, Goliath. A star tattoo design of the Star of David as a shield is an idea.
The octogram: This eight-pointed star is one that is not seen as often. It is mostly seen as representing the Pagan calendar, and has come to mean “regeneration.”
The Nautical Star: This star was created because of sailors. They would use the stars in the night sky to tell them which way to sail, depending on the stars to safely find their destination. You don’t have to be a sailor to get a Nautical Star tattoo design. This star also provides protection and guidance to those that are lost.
Star tattoo designs for dreamers: We have all heard the saying that if you wish on a star your wish will come true. If you believe, or just love, the idea that a star will make your dreams come true why not get a star tattoo design with this idea? Have one star inked on your body. Just one large and bright star of any design you choose. Along with this star, add that famous rhyme:
Star light, star bright
First star I see tonight
I wish I may, I wish I might
Have the wish I wish tonight
With this star tattoo design you will always have that one star to wish upon.
Shooting star tattoo with the dark image of death: A legend says that if you see three shooting stars in one night, then you are doomed to die soon. This means that stars are not always shiny balls of light and hope. Instead, they can bring your doom. If you want a dark star tattoo design, and didn’t think that would be possible, then here you go: Get a shooting star tattoo of three meteors falling to earth. Give them long tails. Standing and waiting, would be the grim reaper, a dark angel of death, or a skeleton. You choose which one will bring death.
Shooting star tattoo as a memorial: Star tattoo designs can be used as memorial tattoos. One legend says that every human being has their own star in the night sky, and that when they die, that star falls from the sky. A memorial shooting star tattoo should have a falling star, but should also include something to remind you of the loved one lost. You could use a name or initials, but it is always better to get a tattoo of something that they loved. You could also add a tear to this star tattoo design, or even place wings on the star and have it soaring up inside falling down.
