You see them all the time on bodies across the nation and even the world: tribal star tattoos. Do they mean anything or are they just something that people get put on their bodies because they look cool? Well, to reply to that question , you have to look at why folks get tattoos. Do they get tattoos because they have special meaning or did they make them make themselves unique from people or do folk get tattoos because they believe they look cool? For most folks, it is a little a mix of all the above. Tribal tattoos have for ages been favored. You see the tribal arm bands, the tribal ankle bands, and you even see tribal thorns running across people’s backs. Stars, also, have for ages been preferred sorts of tattoos. Some of the people just have plain black star tattoos and some have shooting stars and some have nautical stars. So it’s only common sense that the two styles would combine to make tribal star tattoos.
The meaning behind tribal star tattoos is typically that stars are unique, they’re full of wonder, we wish upon them and they represent an area of travel and study that we still don’t fully understand. After all, when we see the light of a star, we really don’t know if that star is still burning or not. The light takes a significant amount of time to make it to earth so we’d be able to be having a look at the light of a star which has long since burned out, yet we see it as an intense light in the sky. Fundamentally , when we have a look at stars, we are taking a second look into the past. With all of those characteristics assigned to stars, it’s no wonder why people love to get tribal star tattoos put onto their bodies. And the great thing about tribal star tattoos is that it’s rare for two stars to look the same.
Finding Your Star
If you’d like to get a tribal star tattoo on your body, you really don’t need a reason. They do look cool, and they are unique as long as you don’t choose them off the wall of the tattoo parlor, and they don’t really need to mean anything; but you can assign a meaning to it. It is your tattoo so you need to allot anything you need to it.
Finding your star may be as easy as asking an artist to draw a tribal star tattoo for you. You may even look in mags, or in films, for concepts on how you need your tribal star tattoo to look. If you can draw, then by all means draw it yourself. The great thing about tattoos is that they can look anyway you want. Just make sure you realize that tats are permanent so you should be completely satisfied with your decision before you get any tattoo placed on your body.
