Nautical Star Tattoo
This image of a nautical star tattoo is a very telling one. It is bleeding and that can be saying a lot all by itself. The nautical star is a symbol long used by sailors to show they have braved the wilds of the worlds seas and survived. And I am thinking that the bleeding represents someone trying to say that it was not an easy thing to do at all. This person is saying that to have survived their ordeal at sea took everything from them including their blood. They want to make sure that people understand that the life of sailor is no walk in the park.
I would think a nautical star tattoo like this one, meaning one that is bleeding, would suit any one of those guys that goes out king crab fishing in Alaska on that Deadliest Catch television show. Because those guys pay very dearly for their experience at sea, and very often with the lives of their friends and family members. Those men lay their lives on the line very single time they go to sea yet they continue to do it over and over again. They are indeed the most adventuress sailors in the world today.
Nautical Star Tattoo
The nautical star has been used by both genders, numerous social groups, and cultural heritages. Each group has their own lore behind the choice making this a very versatile symbol. It’s quickly recognizable, can be done relatively fast, and has strong meaning. The longest history belongs to sailors (hence the nautical style part). Since man has first sailed, they used the stars as early navigation aids, so it’s only natural that nautical star tattoos would retain some value for them. In the past 50 years nautical star tattoos have caught on with gays and lesbians, punk rockers, vegans, straight-edge, and military soldiers. Each group uses it a common symbol. Like sailors, the idea of navigating your own path against all obstacles is very appealing. Keep that in mind when choosing your design. Nautical star tattoos will work anywhere on your body, but It is most often done on the arms or chest in a smaller style. The most important choice you can make for your nautical star tattoo is the color choice. A monochrome star does not look nearly as good as a two or three color design. A good color choice is red and black. Also, blue and black can look good.
