Star tattoos are among the most sought after tattoo designs both among men and women throughout the world. There are numerous varieties of star tattoos with each variation having a different meaning. The most popular types of star tattoos include shooting stars, nautical stars, pentagrams, hexagrams, septagrams and so on. The shooting star tattoos often represent an event or a time in one’s life that has left a deep and lasting impression on the person. The nautical star tattoo stands for finding one’s own way in life, referring to the time when sailors had to navigate the sea depending on the location of the North Star. It may also represent guidance and protection like the North Star. Symbolic star tattoos like the pentagrams and hexagrams represent similar meaning as the symbols.
