Star tattoo designs are extremely popular. Stars are universally regarded as a great design of tattoo to get. In this article, I’ll tell you what they mean and then tell you about 5 different types of star tattoo designs that you will want to know about before getting your next tattoo.

Star Tattoo Meaning

For most people wearing them, tattoos of stars have little to no meaning. They just look nice. They are also quite neutral and do not have any real mythological or religious status unless you choose to get a star done in a particular style.

For some people, they can represent ambition or hope but for most they are quite neutral.

Star Tattoo Designs For Girls

Girls are fortunate because many tattoos of stars are considered feminine from a cultural point of view. Many of the styles of star tattoos are also feminine.

The regular star style tattoo is five sided. It may be a simple outline with no colouring within or each star may be painted in multiple colours. A popular type of tattoo in this latter style is the collection of “shooting stars”. This is very common to see on the feet, the inner wrist, the hip and the ribs.

Another style of star that is done quite often consists of a black outline adjacent to an ink-less region just inside that, followed by a filling of the rest of the tattoo’s centre with ink.

Star Tattoos On Neck

This is a popular type of tattoo and it comes in many forms.

One is to have a collection of shooting stars that come up from the back (or don’t) and end under the hairline but above shoulder height. For example, Rihanna has a neck tattoo like this. At other times, a single star in outlined black or green ink can be found in this same location.

Another variation is to have an off-centred star on the neck such as shooting stars going towards an ear. Some girls like to get star(s) done right behind the ear. Although many people find this sexy, some people may consider this to be a “facial tattoo” and it could stop you getting some types of jobs.

Tribal Star Tattoo Designs

Tribal stars are less common than those mentioned above but they still make for a great looking tattoo. In fact, there are many more varieties of tribal star tattoos.

Some stars may appear to have depth and be in three dimensions. More commonly, a tribal tattoo will be in the Maori style. Tribal design style means that the five points on a star can be done in a style that is highly unique to you.

4 Point Star Tattoos

Most stars are drawn with 5 points. Frankly, a 4 pointed star does not look like a star and the same goes for 6 points. I strongly advise you to avoid these types of tattoo unless your artist is highly skilled and can convince you otherwise.

The stereotypical tattoo of a star is cute and multi-coloured and generally does not look good on a man. However, if he wants to carry this type of tattoo and he can pull it off then that’s his business and who is anyone to judge.

That said, if you want something you can cope with more easily then you could opt for a tribal style tattoo and these are more neutral. A shooting star that has a tail like a comet or a meteorite is also a good choice.
