All About Star of David Tattoos

Lately, Star of David tattoos have become quite popular. Several high-profile celebrities have been seen sporting these symbols on their bodies, and many have either followed suit or have wondered about getting one. This article will talk a little about the Star of David, what designs you can get, and how much they will cost.


Star of David Tattoos: What is the Star of David?

The Star of David is a traditional Jewish symbol that is named after David, the great king of ancient Israel found in the Bible. It is a six-pointed star formed by two interlocking triangles, and was first created some time during the medieval ages. Since then, it has served as the unofficial and official symbol of Jewish people everywhere, and is the national symbol of Israel.

Star of David tattoos are popular with non-Jewish people, for multiple reasons. One of the main reasons is the attractiveness of the symbol. The interlocking triangles suggest symmetry, while the entire design resembles the sun, with the points being the sun’s rays. Another reason is due to a mystical Jewish offshoot religion called Kabbalah, which uses the Star of David in its beliefs and practices. They believe that the star represents the number seven, considered a holy number in the Jewish tradition (the six points plus the center). Kabbalah has become more popular lately, with many celebrities practicing its beliefs.


Star of David Tattoos: What Designs are There?

You can get several types of designs, from the standard, traditional Star of David to more modern and artistic variations. Some believe that you should not alter the form of the star, while others have taken the shape and changed it a bit to look more contemporary. One of my favorite Star of David designs is a thick golden star coming out of the clouds, with rays of light behind it. I have also seen other stars that have been drawn in multi-colored ink, in “3-D” designs, with flowers, and with Hebrew lettering around the star. The best design, however, is the one you come up with yourself. Make it your own and it will be more attractive to you than anything else you can buy.


Star of David Tattoos: How Expensive are They?

Well, it really depends on where you go. There are three factors that most tattoo parlors use to determine the price of a particular tattoo: color, size, and simplicity. If you get a simple Star of David tattoo that is in black ink only, and is, say, two inches wide, then it will cost a good bit less than an intricate Star of David tattoo that is in black, white, and gold and is four inches wide.

With that said, you can get a Star of David tattoo pretty cheap. A small (about 1.5-2 inches wide) tattoo in black ink could cost you as little as $20. If you want a bigger one, say, a four-inch wide tattoo that is gold and outlined in black ink, then you could be looking at a price of anywhere from $75-150. If the design is particularly intricate – say, you have words or symbols inscribed along the Star of David – then you can pay a bit more.

The bottom line is that there is more than likely a parlor out there that you can afford if you want to get your Star of David tattoo.
