Why Get A Star Tattoo?

The star is a classic cryptogram – Dating back to ancient times. It has played many key roles in plenty of religions and cultures. Even before the ancient astronomers knew what a star was and what it consisted of, they were still loved by all. Humans have always looked up in the heavens, in order to attempt to explain what stars are to their peers, by creating mythical stories about their origins.


Stars can be used for anything. It is not limited to a specific culture or religion. It can also signify many things to plenty of people. Women and men alike could get couple star tattoos. When it comes to a star tattoo design, females prefer shooting stars, since they convey a feminine touch to them. Meanwhile, guys enjoy getting nautical stars because of its association with sea travel. The star tattoo could either be drawn as a single star, a group of stars, or even with a moon accompanying it.

A star tattoo can be highly flexible. Tattoo artists can combine it together with either the moon, the sun, a planet, fairies, skulls, wings, or butterflies. Any picture or symbol works well together with a star, so people tend to choose star designs for the purpose of giving their new ink a personal touch.


The Designs You Can Do With A Star Tattoo

Because the star is a very simple shape, a lot (and we mean A LOT) of tattoo styles can be used for the star tattoo. If you want something artsy? Boom! Watercolor tattoo designs! Want something common? Neotraditional tattoo designs! Want to be more unique? Bam! Geometric tattoo design!

Here are just some of the designs we can think of that will really interest you:


The Watercolor Tattoo

Over the last decade, the explosion of various tattoo ink colors resulted in an idea that is then considered bold and inconceivable by old tattoo artists and enthusiasts: Watercolor tattoos. Everyone thought that mimicking modern art on the skin will never be possible until the first batch of watercolor tattoos sprung up in the latter half of the 2000s. These tattoos were considered out of this world because of its richness in color that was never before seen in the industry. Soon, the design caught on and it is now a trend for both tattoo artists and enthusiasts.

Watercolor Tattoo Without A Black Base

A watercolor tattoo without a black base means that the tattoo design has no dark line work that is commonly used on other colored tattoo designs. This lack of an apparent framework is what gives watercolor tattoos its distinct look. Having no black base can make tattoo designs look like the colors are melting into other colors also used in the design. It can also make it look like the design melt to the skin like it is a natural part of the body and fade it at the edges-if you can find it that is.


Watercolor Tattoo With A Black Base

The other type of watercolor tattoo is the one that has a black base. This means that some sort of line or framework to contain the tattoos structure and colors. Though this is somewhat self-explanatory, there is also a difference visually from the design mentioned above aside from the black lines.

Since the artist will be using black ink for the lines and framework of the tattoo design itself, these black lines will help the colors to pop out even more and offer a higher contrast effect that without a black base. You will see a vivid clash of color thanks in part to the black elements used in the design.

The Neotraditional Tattoo

Something that is old and irrelevant cannot be modernized right? Wrong! Old designs can still come to life because of artists and enthusiasts that gives out passionate efforts to modernize things that are considered old. Look at vintage cars and objects for example, yes they are old but they can be considered “rad” or cool when given proper care. This is also the same case with tattoo designs that are considered classics. Most millennials would think that having classic tattoo designs makes them feel old. This is the reason why neo-traditional tattoo designs were born. Artists and enthusiasts alike would like to revitalize the classic designs so that they will still have a foothold in an industry that is completely changing with the times. They want these classic designs to also change with the times and have a new face, a new breath of life, a new demographic.
