									Star Tattoo Ideas - Choose A Design With Significance
There are many ways in which we can express ourselves and our
individuality, but surely one of the most lasting ways is through
tattoos. Among the most celebrated and common designs worn by countless
people around the world is the star tattoo.
Some people find the star design somewhat dull and boring but to others,
particularly those who are star gazers or who are fascinated with the
stars, this design captures their inner self and purpose. If you are
contemplating having a star tattoo but are in need of suggestions on how
to come up with a few personalized ideas then read on...
Different Kinds Of Stars
When most people are asked to draw the shape of a star what immediately
comes to mind is the five pointed type, which is the one most of us
learned to draw when we were children. The five sided star, known as a
pentagram, is one of the most powerful yet misconceived symbolic
representations of our modern times, although the shape has been around
for thousands of years. It is a popular belief today that a pentagram
star tattoo wearer is somehow connected to Satanism, but this belief is
not entirely correct. It is a known fact that there are indeed some
Satanists who do favor the pentagram design but they usually show the
pentagram upside down (where the single point is downwards). By wearing
this pentagram star design upside down it is meant to symbolize the
elements rule over spirit, hence the satanic implications.
On the other hand, there are a lot of different kinds of stars designs
other than the pentagram that we can use or consider for tattoo ideas.
You may wish to look at the possible designs that could be combined with
the four pointed star that also serves as the cross shaped star. This
shape offers a simplistic and elegant option.
Another one of the star tattoo ideas that a lot of people consider is the
pentacle shape which has traditionally been a representative of the art
of witchcraft and the 'dark side'. Notwithstanding the traditional
connection with witchcraft the pentacle tattoo idea is becoming more and
more popular as a tattoo choice for many people, even those who do not
favor or support witchcraft.
If you are a religious person, you may wish to consider the six pointed
star which as we all know is meant to symbolize the Star of David. This
shape is also known to represent the pagan God called, Remphan. Then
there is the seven pointed star which is said to symbolize your
childhood, the whimsical or is considered by some to be a fairy star.
Apart from the 4, 5, 6 and 7 sided star shapes you may choose to have
your tattoo incorporate the eight pointed star which is known as the
cross of St. John. The eight pointed star is also known to symbolize the
emblem of Knights of Malta, which historically was one of the most
popular religious organizations that existed during the time of the
religious crusades in the middle east.
If you have decided that a star tattoo design is "the one for you" then
make sure you consider the traditional symbolic meanings and carefully
choose a design that will best represent you and your thoughts and
