Anyone who is into astrology knows what an important part stars and the skies play.

Stars have often been associated with change. This is because as the night drags on, the stars move across the sky. They never remain in one spot, and continually do this same motion night after night. This may also be because when someone “wishes upon a star”, they are more than likely wishing for some sort of major change in their life. There are many different reasons why stars have been known to represent change, and really most of them are up to the interpretation of the individual who is looking to get the tattoo.
Wishing upon a star was a term that was popularized by Disney and Jimminy Cricket. However, before that, it was still common place to look toward the stores when you were making a wish. In fact, this practice can be traced back all the way to Before Christ because many people would look to the heavens when they prayed. This practice is still in effect today, and has become the norm for many people.
There are many great places for star tattoo designs on the body. Some of the more popular areas include behind the ear, on the shoulder, on the back, or on the legs. The larger the area, the more intricate the design can be.
