Tattoos that depict stars in their many different types have always been popular and will continue to be. Stars are a representational symbol for many different things.

Pentagrams, or five pointed stars, have meaning for many religious groups both Christian and otherwise. Orientation of the star can be with the single point either up or down. Both directions have meaning for faiths of all kinds.


The nautical star is a five pointed star where each point is striped with a dark half and a light half. It is often associated with water based armed forces.
