Nautical Stars Sailors have long used nautical stars as symbols of protection and guidance. Here is more information and input: . A friend of mine who is a marine told me that a star is a symbol of protection. He has them tattooed on his shoulders. . Back in the day when being gay wasnt the thi…ng to do, butch females would get the tattoo on the inside of their wrists so they could cover it up with a watch during the day and at night they could take off the watch and other dykes would know. Just a version of one of the meanings that i have heard. . Nautical Star tattoos are very commonly used in the gay world to denote homosexuality. They are often placed in a location that can be easily concealed. For example, one could have the star tattoed on his/her wrist, allowing them to hide it (with a watch or long-sleeved shirt) by day, and reveal it at night at the bar/club. . The nautical stars were originally used by sailors to help guide their way as they sailed through the night. They relied upon the stars to protect them and bring them home safely. A lot of soldiers get nautical stars for the same reason: protection. . They symbolize protection, guidance, loyalty, and honor. They can also symbolize prestige or a higher rank in the military. . There are two meanings of the "STAR" tattoo. First is the protection and guidance meaning and second is being affiliated with the gay community. I know some people don't like the idea that the star can be affiliated with the gay community but that is what the meaning is with-in many gay communities and I know of at least 8 people who have them and got them for that meaning. . Back in the day sailors would tattoo nautical stars on them because they relied on the stars to take them home. So in that case the star would be a symbol of guidance. Now as time has passed the nautical stars represent the direction of ones life. If it's pointed upward they have a higher outlook on life and so on. . The meaning of the Nautical star is to create your own path, but use the stars as a guide when you are lost or scared. . I have a Nautical Star on my wrist. The reason I got mine was to honor my lesbian sisters who used to tatoo their wrist with a "star" as a secret code to all other lesbians that had to hide their gay identity back in the 30's, 40's and 50's and who in the 60's and 70's had the courage to bring us out of the fear of our closets into our happy open lives today. That is why me and a lot of my other lesbian sisters today wear the "star" today. If you want to read more about the origins of the "Nautical Star" in the gay community the pick up the book titled "Boots of Leather, Slippers of Gold: The History of a Lesbian Community" by Elizabeth Lapovsky Kennedy. Here's the passage (with some pieces dropped) from "Boots of Leather, Slippers of Gold: The History of a Lesbian Community" by Elizabeth Lapovsky Kennedy and Madeilne D. Davis copyright 1993 p. 189. talking about the 1940's and 1950's): "...During this same time period, the cultural push to be identified as lesbians- or at least different- all the time was so powerful that it generated a new form of identification among the tough bar lesbians: a star tattoo on the top of the wrist, which was usually covered by a watch. This was the first symbol of community identity that did not rely on butch-fem imagery. We can trace this phenomenon back to an evening of revelry in the late 1950's, when a few butches trooped over to "Dirty Dick's" tattoo parlor on Chippewa Street and had the tiny blue five-pointed star put on their wrists. Later, some of the fems of this group also go the idea one night and did it...The comunity views the tattoo as a definite mark of identification..."the Buffalo police knew [that] the people that had the stars on their wrist were lesbians and they had their names and so forth. That it was an identity thing with the gay community, with the lesbian community". The fact that the star tattoo was created by those who were firmly into roles, in fact by the group that was considered the butchy butches and their fems, suggest that the force to assert lesbian identity was strong enough to break through the existing traditions of boldness based in butch-fem roles. The stars presage the methods of identity created by gay liberation. In fact, the mark has become something of a tradition in local circles and has seen a revival since the 1970s." . Many people have different meanings, but I have my nautical star to remind me to always follow my dreams, also to protect me and guide me through out life. . I am in the United States Army, an MP who searched towns and villages for Al Quida and insurgents. I was in Iraq for a year. I have a red and black nautical star on my wrist. The reason I got it was because when I was out there, I felt it was a guide to guide me home to my family safely. I got it so that it would remind me that I am going to make it to see my son grow up. I am not gay, it doesn't matter what you believe it represents, it means something different for everyone. Out in the desert, I would look up at the stars and think about home. So anyone can think what they want to, that is what it means to me. . I have two black and red nautical stars on each elbow. I am in the Navy and I know of quite a few people who have nautical stars. Sailors where some of the first people to bring back the art of tattooing which they picked up from indigenious tribes in the pacific.

I have been in the tattoo and piercing industry for 29+ years and I can tell you this: The Nautical Star is just that "A NAUTICAL STAR!" My hats off to those who know that it is a symbol representing the guidance of a return to safe port! . This "gay symbol" is a load of hooey that someone made up VERY recently. The nautical star tattoo has been around nearly as long as tattooing itself. The late Celts (or early Irish, depending on your view of World History) were said to have been the first to have the tattoos, although evidence of it being used on ships in Spain has been found pre-dating the Irish claim. As a Marine, it's a very commonplace symbol amongst us if we have been part of a Boat Raid company, red for port, green for starboard on varying parts of the body. On ship, I saw about a million different variations on the Sailors I was was serving with, obviously harking back to the sailor roots. . The five point star, not necessarily the nautical star, was a Pagan symbol. It is the way Venus moves across the night sky. Venus was a Pagan goddess.

The nautical star is on some of the Mormon temples. On the plaques they have telling the meaning of some of the things on the temple it says the star means holyness. . I believe that the Nautical Star derived from the Druze Star. Almost the exact same concept, except they split the star segments down the middle and added color. I'm sure the sailor thing is correct, and truthfully no one should care what past people whom have had these tattoos believe its translated to. If you get a tattoo that feels right, think of in your head what you believe it to be. But anyway back to the Druze Star and the link to that of a nautical star. The Druze Star is in 5 segments with the colors green (top), red (right), yellow (lower right), white (lower left), and blue (left). Green is the mind, the male principle. Red is the soul, or the female principle. Yellow is the word, the mediator between divine and material. White is manifested will or actualization, and Blue is will, the realm of possiblity. I believe this has something to do with the creation of the nautical star, or I could be wrong. Just an assumption. Maybe someone just drew a star one day and decided to put 2 different colors in it who knows for sure? . It was used by OLD sailors and the symbol represents North on a map. It is the North Star the sailors would use it as a baring to get home.

As far as I know, mermaids were the embelishments of very "lonely" sailors who mistook sea-cows, (manatees) for something a bit more alluring... I believe it just became the hallmark for many sailors who wished to carry on the salty tradition for lonely sailors everywhere... Lar Waimon Answer I'…ve heard that a blond or red head mermaid is about chasing dreams and following your heart even if it's foolish.

As tattoo inks started to evolved different mineral pigments were used to give co…lor, mainly cobalt for blue and iron oxide for red.

Later on as the evolution of tattoo ink progressed and more colors were being created the blue and red pigments came to have symbolism to the superstitious beliefs of early sailors. The symbol of a star has always been deeply ingrained in maritime tradition because sailors would use the stars to navigate (((while sailors rushed around on the deck of a ship performing there duties sometimes they would get disoriented and forget which side was left and right, so they started marking the right side of ships with a black star hence the term "starboard"))) According to maritime superstition and lore a red and black nautical star is symbolic of the north star and sailors would tattoo themselves with this symbol believing that it would guide them home safely. A blue and black nautical star is symbolic of a sailors loyalty and love for the sea. ( Full Answer )
