Shooting Star Tattoos
We know now that shooting stars are actually meteors that could come hurtling to earth and crush you and the porch you are sitting, stargazing on.
When searching for the design of your dreams it is much more useful to view a shooting star as one of those perfectly symmetrical stars that is falling from the sky... though that is not to say that a meteor shooting star design would not be a pretty unique and awesome choice for a tattoo.
The shooting star is flirty, fanciful and, when done right, extremely sensual. They can represent a dream you one day hope to accomplish or a goal you have already achieved.
Generally, the blueprint for a shooting star design is composed of one star tacked on the end of a few slanted lines.
This aspect of the shooting star image makes it a great stand alone tattoo, as well as an ideal add-on to an existing design.
Spotting a shooting star is a rare and romantic occurrence that is as beautiful as it is mysterious. Sporting a shooting star tattoo is not rare or mysterious, but it is romantic and beautiful.
Although this is highly unlikely we feel it is important to point out, so remain aware and alert. However, if you do see a shooting star heading your way, move out of its path very quickly.
Another popular design is the shooting star shower, which is made up of a number of stars in varying sizes that follow a slanted or vertical line downwards. The slanted lines provide the image with a sense of movement, as if the star is actually falling from somewhere.
For an edgier look, try a shooting star design that comes out of a smoking gun or falls from a broken heart. To show your softer side, use the shooting star tattoo image to punctuate a meaningful quote or to dress up a loved one’s name.
