For centuries we have looked at the balls of gas miles away from us and tried to gather meaning: scientific, symbolic, and spiritual meaning. Stars captivate us, twinkle their way in and out of our thoughts, and provoke us to look up and search for some kind of answer.
They are the perfect muses for works of art, including body art ink ideas, because of the beauty in their mystery.
It is fun to learn the ways different civilizations think about stars and to create your own thoughts on how the stars may guide you. Here are a couple of awesome depictions of stars that are popular in body art.
We love the shooting star because of the way it represents endless possibilities. We believe that the star that soars through the sky has this intense, remarkable power to bring our most treasured thoughts, hopes, and dreams to fruition.
We just need to unlock that power, beckon it, and bend it to our will with a single simple wish.
Imagine seeing a shooting star every day. You would have infinite opportunities to make wishes, right? Have a shooting star as your tattoo to keep your heart hopeful and optimistic for the future and maybe all our dreams might come true.
Love astronomy? If so that means you probably have a favorite constellation design; one that speaks to your soul in a way the others don’t.
Maybe it’s your zodiac sign. Whatever that constellation might be, a tattoo would be a beautiful way to keep that constellation and its beautiful meaning with you every day.
We all remember Peter Pan and hold that idea of magic deep in our hearts. We might know logically that the work is fiction. Despite this, we still want desperately to believe that Neverland exists somewhere that we don’t have access to yet.
We all need to fly to the second star to the right of course. Depicting those two stars in body art can be a reference to our favorite Disney movie, but it is so much more than that.
It is a way to affirm our belief that the crazy and fantastical can be real if we believe it so.
