      Thanks for everything Kim. I love the shooting star with music notes. Shooting star tattoos are a great choice, a safe choice even. It's the type of tattoo one wouldn't mind when their older. I love the mix of blue, purple, and pink for a women's shooting star tattoo design. Appreciate the comment Kim :)

      I believe this one is closer to the type of tattoo besides the lightening bug, and I really like the idea of including one's zodiac sign with it. Of the ones shown, my favorite is the one that is intermingled with musical notes. V+++Shared on FB

      Wishing you a great day and a great week,

      @MsDora, thanks for the great comment. I truly understand, I know tattoos are not for everyone, but there's nothing wrong with appreciating the art, symbolism, and history. Thanks for your inspirational words MsDora, take care.

      @Ruby, appreciate the visit. Certainly, shooting star tattoo designs are beautiful, cute, great for any girl. It's the type of tattoo that represents hope and wishing, one that many won't regret later on down the road.

      @Sueswan, so great to hear from you dear friend:) See, that's a meaningful shooting star tattoo idea and a great one. We all want to read for the stars, achieve our goals, dreams, and aspirations. Your shooting star tattoo would then be a reminder to never give up:)

      @Frank, "Frank The Tank!" Thanks for your time. I love shooting star tattoos. Not only are they cute and adorable, for women that is, but their also meaningful. You don't see too many shooting star tattoo designs for men, but they can look equally impressive.

      @Chitrangada, thank you so much. Exactly, think about it, how many ancient cultures have looked at the same stars as we see today? These beliefs, wishes, and deep symbolism give the shooting star tattoo its popularity, symbolic popularity I should say. Great point and thanks:)
