Nautical Star Tattoos - A Wonderful Tattoo Idea for You!

What comes to mind when you hear the word nautical star? More often than not, we associate the word with sailors! And what enters your mind when you hear nautical star tattoos? A kind of tattoo that sailors have? Well, that's partly correct because over time it was popular among these men but definitely it has also made its way to be part of the modern day times as a popular tattoo design for sailors and non-sailors!

Way back before the invention of SONA and other gadgets/technology that guide modern day sailors, the stars were vital tools for those people who navigated the sea. The most visible star in the northern hemisphere The North Star formed an alliance with other constellation of stars to guide the sailors at night then.

It would be safe to say that the sailors were grateful to the guidance the stars had given them and had them etched on their skin. They thought that the stars brought them home safely and therefore revered them, something that formed a superstitious belief that the nautical stars tattoo kept them safe in their every voyage.

With the passing of time, the Nautical star tattoos started to become popular to soldiers too, not just to sailors. If the Nautical star tattoo protected the sailors, they thought it could also protect them. On the whole, soldiers got this tattoo design for the reason of guidance and protection though a few probably got one for art's sake. Given all these origins, the Nautical star tattoo design has become an skin emblem of safe journey---or maybe a good life journey.

As many superstitious things have been associated with the star symbol, the nautical star tattoo or any tattoo design inspired by a star is meant to protect and guide. But there's no denying that with the passing of time, its symbolism has evolved and has transcended guidance and physical protection of sailors and soldiers: It also symbolizes guidance of ordinary people into the right path of life.

In addition, if the symbol points upward, it can send a message that this person has a higher perspective in life. It is likewise believed that the one who has it on his skin is ambitious, driven and is likely to be successful.
