Even if you’re considering a simple star tattoo, it is much better to commission your own unique design rather than apply a tattoo that someone else is wearing. It is so easy to pick up a pen and piece of paper and start sketching, it is a wonder why more people do not do it.
A star tattoo is something that you will live with for life. Surely, by making the decision to get a star tattoo, it is also worth taking the time and coming up with a design that is unique to you. Research suggests that there is less regret among tattooed people who have designed their own tattoos, than those that simply got their designs from a brochure.
The reason for this is the emotional input. For example, why would you want a star tattoo design? Is it because you like the look of it? If so, how do you think you’ll feel in twenty years time when you look at your star tattoo knowing that it is the result of your own hard work? It’s fair to say that you’ll most likely prefer it to an off the shelf tattoo, so to speak.
Many people have tattoos to symbolise something important in their life, a tattoo becomes their visual recollection of the event. Again, if the event is so important that you want to permanently record it on your body, surely it is important enough to take the time and develop your own design.
Spend time researching star tattoos and asking opinions of friends. Tattoo galleries can be found on the internet and can be great for inspiration to help you come up with your own star tattoo design. Remembering that this star will be tattooed on your body for the rest of your life do you not think that it is important to spend as much time as possible on the design of the tattoo?
Often star tattoos form part of a tattoo collection. Maybe you will have more than one star tattoo? One on each arm? Or two stars together shooting across your back? There are also many possibilities for combining star tattoos with other tattoo designs.
Some people like to get tattooed with special friends. Maybe you and your special friend could get matching star tattoos to show a special bond or commitment to one another. Star tattoos can represent a time in your life when you are dreaming and reaching for high goals.
