Shooting Star Tattoos
This tattoo in particular is much more complex and involved than most shooting star tattoos usually are. This one has a whole series of stars moving through what I suppose is meant to be a star field of sorts. When I see shooting star tattoos I immediately think of making a wish upon a star so I suppose that is the most common meaning behind these tattoos. And that can also be expanded to include hope for a better tomorrow and those sort of things as well. And somehow or another these tattoos always bring me back to the connection that many of us feel to the stars, that no one can really explain.
Another belief behind the meaning of shooting stars is that they stand for one brief, fleeting moment of this persons life that they wish to remember for ever. Much like the brief fleeting moment in which one may witness an actual shooting star, which is not a star at all but is really a meteorite. But we all get that I think. It is still a cool thing to see and takes nothing away from the fascination we all seem to have with the heavenly bodies.
Shooting Star Tattoos
Here we have one of those shooting star tattoos on the top of a persons foot. It is said that this is one of the more painful areas in which to get a tattoo because of how close the skin is to the bones, but it can’t be all that bad because a great deal of people get it done. Usually shooting star tattoos stand for that persons inner most desires to be a star themselves, but it is not always true. I once spoke to a girl who had several shooting star tattoos on her arm and she told me that certain ones represented her children and the last one represented her husband and that they were all stars to her so it worked out perfectly. It just goes to show you that people will always come up with whatever they like the best as far as a meaning goes, regardless of the traditional thinking.
Shooting star tattoos are fairly common in today’s culture and you might find someone of virtually any age wearing one or more of them. The one in this picture has about as much in common with the average star tattoo as it has that is different. The common parts being the multiple stars in movement and the other being the wave that represents the movement itself.
