Best Answer

Star tattoos In the past have been a symbol of sailors/merchant marines. Nautical stars have certain meanings such as guidance, as do plain five-point stars. A six-point star is a symbol of the Jewish faith as well as an East Coast gang symbol. (A five-point star can mean this as well.) Bottom line: a star can mean anything you want it to.
