Tattoo Ideas: Stars
Stars are, by far, one of the most popular trends in tattoos today. They are so popular, in fact, they will probably soon become too popular and therefore end up going out of style. Oh well, they rock for now, and there are so many different styles and colors and ways of inking the image onto your skin.
The standard, basic star is a common choice for a first tattoo. It's easy, it's simple, and you can pretty much place it anywhere and it will look good. Although I might be biased, because my first tattoo was a small black star on my lower stomach, I think it's a good way to introduce yourself to the pain of a tiny needle repeatedly puncturing your skin--an experienced artist can ink a small star in under five minutes.
Colored stars are an easy way of representing people or ideas important in your life: rainbow colors to symbolize gay pride, your favorite color or the favorite color of someone you love.
