Theodore Roosevelt once spoke, “Keep your eyes on the stars, and your feet on the ground.” One glance at these star tattoos for men and it might just peak your interest in astronomy a bit more.
From nautical to falling stars, I’m going to show you some exceptionally detailed artwork.
But before I do, know that each design has a deep range of meanings behind of them.
Take for instance the nautical star with five points, which can symbolize direction and protection. Sailors out on the sea would look upon the north star to travel safely onwards home.
Then they’re shooting stars too, which are often viewed as being a way to remember an unforgettable moment or person. It understandable when you consider that a shooting star is often regarded as a once in a lifetime occurrence.
Of course, there are other kinds of designs such as the stars of life (six points, widely seen the medical field), the pentagram (positive and dark thoughts), etc. as well.
However, to help you come up with even more ideas I’ve also included a handful of inspirational solar system and galaxy pieces. Truth be told, some of them are literally out of this world.
