Arm Star Tattoo

The above star tattoo is a tribute to this lady’s children. We all think our own children are stars even if no one else does. In reality, we are programmed from the day they are born to have biased opinions on the skill level and behavior of our children. Mother nature can be a cruel mistress sometimes and sometimes she can give us the most amazing blessings in the form a child.



Nautical Star Tattoo

The nautical star is common in the tattoo world. It was used as an instrument to guide wayward sailors on their way to new adventures and new discoveries. Don’t quote me on that but it sounded good. There are several meanings to the nautical star tattoo. Sometimes people get them to show that they have survived hardship. Sometimes people get them because they love getting ink done but have run out of original ideas. Regardless of the reason, it’s all good baby.


Chest Star Tattoo

Here is some big ol’ stars on this guys chest. The inner shoulder or outer chest is good spot to get two identical tattoos. These ones are pretty average and sure you could come with something better. So challenge yourself and design an absolute ripper.

Universal Star Tattoo

This one looks like a home job. Not that its a bad thing. Rough, scrappy, tattoos have been made popular by famous music artist. This is features crappy line work and a dodgy color job. If that’s what float your goat- go for it!

A Star is Born

I wonder if Jeff Goldblum’s parents said the day of his entry to world. If I was his father I would have said that for sure after I held him up to the sun and proclaimed, “Everything the light touches will one day be yours, Jeff”.

Foot Star Tattoo

The feet and the fingers are ideal for small tattoos that don’t have a lot of detail. This lady has a cute tail of stars reminder her that your never too old to dream a little dream or a big dream. If you’re going to dream- dream big. Shoot for the stars and the heavens above and that goes for tattoos as well. Get that big bold tattoo and don’t worry about what it’s going to look like when you’re all saggy like prune.

Hand Star Tattoo

Are you good with your hands? Why not celebrate your skill a nice star tattoo on hands. The different sizes of stars used in this tattoo give it depth and add a little dimension to the piece. It’s simple and elegant.

Hand Star Tattoo

A Tribute to Steffan

Have you ever heard of Steffan? If the answer is no you’re not alone. I have no idea who Steffan is nor do I care. But let’s give it up for Steffan and his tattoo tribute. If I had to guess I would say he’s this woman’s child. Welcome to the world Steffan and happy birthday for 16th of March. All jokes aside, this tattoo artist has done a fine job with the lettering in this piece. They also deserve some props for recreating the foot print and the hand print. Good Job Mate!


Neck Star Tattoo

Get a neck tattoo. Those right there are words of wisdom that should be lived by. The neck is a good spot for a tattoo and thanks to rappers throughout the world they are becoming more accepted  by the general public. But be wary there are some old dinosaurs still out there that consider tattoos works of the devil. But don’t worry, like the dinosaurs, they too are becoming extinct.

Colorful Star Tattoo

The sky is full of stars. When it comes time to get your star tattoo get many. A lone star can get lonely all by themselves so get two. Why not get a cluster. That way they will be able to have party on your body together.

What am I’m Looking at Star Tattoo

I’m not really sure what I’m looking at here. I know there are stars in there but what the hell is with the wavy lines. Each to their own. That’s the beauty of tattoos is they don’t have to make sense and you can get whatever the hell you want. Hell, I knew a dude who lost a bet when he was drunk and got the face of some random dude from the bar tattooed on his left butt cheek.

Sexy Star Tattoo

Here is a bunch of sexy stars on this woman’s shoulder. They look great paired with the love heart.

Stars in Your Eyes

Our next model is wearing a variety of different tattoos as you can see by the segmented picture above. She seems to love her small cute tattoos in random places all over her body. Once you catch the tattoo bug it’s easy to get more and more and more. It becomes a lifestyle and next thing you know your sitting in the chair once a week. Soon you will be waking in the middle of the night, in cold sweat, shivering violent, thinking about your next tattoo.

Anarchy in the Skies

In the midst of these star is the a naughty little star. It’s the sign of the devil apparently. I don’t know if the devil would have time to go around and draw these symbols everywhere. He or she would be too busy at the entry gates of hell welcoming all the naughty people of the world.

Mixed Bag Star Tattoo

There are all different kinds of stars in the sky and on the ground. Why not mix it up like this lady has and get a variety of different stars in the cluster. It’s a cool way to keep it as fresh AF.

Lower Leg Star Tattoo

The above tattoo features a star trail on the lower leg. The trails join the piece together and make it appear whole. Use your imagination the next time if comes to your tattoo. Think about the main subject and try something like this in terms of linking tattoos together.

Nautical Themed Fun Star Tattoo

Forearm Star Tattoo

This is a cool take on a star tattoo. It’s big rough around the edges and features a red inner line. As they say in the building industry- rough is good.

Inner Forearm Star Tattoo

Add texture and dimension to your tattoo with thing like cracks as this person has. You don’t have to limit yourself to cracks. Use your imagination and the skies the limit my friends.

Classy Lady with a Star Tattoo

Heels. Check. Star tattoo. Check. Chillin on a balcony in Paris. Check. This lady is rocking a sweet star tattoo and her fancy custom made kicks while eating a baguette in France. The image doesn’t show her eating the baguette, I had to use my imagination on that one. You can picture eating whatever the hell you want.

Necklace of Stars

Forget the pearl necklace. The star necklace is where it’s at. Don’t worry about jewellery, it only gets lost in the ether. Don’t let your jewellery become another statistic and get it tattooed. That way you won’t lose it on those drunken nights out.

Under the Milky Way

The milky way has a bunch of stars and apparently each one has a family of planets around it. Just like our solar system. It make you feel small when you think of it like that. Imagine how many planets there are in the universe. I don’t think I can even count that high.

Face Star Tattoo

If you’re ever struggling for inspiration for your next tattoo watch rap music videos. The kids in the rap world these days are going to town with face tattoos and keeping tattoo artist in business. It’s good for the rap game and good for the economy. But I’m not an economist. I can only speculate and that’s about as good as fact.

Shuriken Star Tattoo

Everybody loves a good shuriken. It’s the Japanese name for a ninja star. Ninja were huge in the late 80’s. There were heaps of ninja movies being released and every kid on the block wanted to be one. We used fashion our own ninja stars out of cardboard and old ice cream containers. Then you would have ninja battle against your friends and if you got hit by a ninja star you were dead and had to count for twenty seconds before you could come back to life.

Cheek Star Tattoo

What’s better than a kiss on the cheek? A star tattoo of course. Above is a cute little tattoo smack bang on the cheek. That’s a bit cheeky.

New Star Tattoo

It’s selfie in the mirror. Lock that down and post it on Instagram #newtattoo #startattoo #checkmeout #Imnotvain


Colors Colors Colors

All the color of the rainbow. This is cool tattoo that utilizes color very well. I love the splashes of ink and it really makes this ordinarily plain tattoo into a palette of beautiful colors.

Within the Galaxy

Here is another unique take on a star tattoo. It has a cool pattern within the star that spirals like the center of a galaxy. So cosmic. So chic

Accentuate the Star

The blur in this photograph really makes the elbow star tattoo pop. This is a cool tattoo. It’s kind of like elbow pads but in tattoo form.

Tattoo Aftercare

Now is about the time that we talk about tattoo aftercare. Caring for your tattoo after it has been completed is really important so it maintains its brilliance. You need to keep it out of the water for a few weeks so it has time to heal. You also need to keep it nice and moist using moisturizer or cream that your tattoo artist suggest. Ask your tattoo artist about how to care for your tattoo. They are the ones in the know and will help you get the best results possible.

Hand Bras and Tattoo Stars

Here is two delightfully fun things in life. A hand bra and star tattoos. This pick is a cheeky one taken in the shower. I wonder if there her hands and if they are who’s taking the picture.

Vivid Star Tattoo

The colors in this tattoo shine as bright as the stars in the sky. They look wonderful and the color has retained its saturation even after the healing process. It’s another simple star tattoo that looks really cool. As you have probably noticed that most of the star tattoos on this list have been pretty basic. But don’t let that stop you from getting something more detailed. The options are endless.

Nautical Star on the Upper Chest

Something a Little Different

This star tattoo has no outline and is a unique take on the classic. This is a great style and could be incorporated into a variety of different tattoos, and using different patterns.

Stars and the Sun

I swear by the moon and the stars and the sun. Unlike the bad lyrics from a boy band from the 90’s, these stars look a bit rock and roll.

And you’ve reached the end of the list. Congratulations! Is your skin itching yet? If it is book into your tattooist and go for it before it’s too late. Luckily for you it’s never too late to get a tattoo unless of course the shop is closed. Then you will have to wait until tomorrow. But tomorrow never come until it’s too late. OK, I’m confused.
