      *KJ, thank you again my dear. It is a great feeling to have your hard earned work noticed. It is very meaningful so I appreciate it. I am trying to build a site that you can get every little detail you need in regards to tattoo designs. Hopefully that is what I can accomplish and then it is on to coins:)

      *Alastar, always a pleasure my friend. You make a great point. Boy, I have seen some bad star tattoos in my days. In my opinion only, I think stars are a lot harder then many tattoo symbols, even some with great detail such as a skull. With others, you can always add shading, touch ups, ect. With the star, it doesn't always work. A good point to consider, always best to go to a professional. Great point Alastar.

      *Alocsin, always great to have a little flavor from LA:) I agree. With so many variations, styles, designs, colors, sizes, there is a little bit for everyone when we discuss star tattoos. See, I have heard a few say that they don't like the tails or art, but I do. You need it with shooting star tattoos anyhow. I really like the artwork and such. Best wishes Alocsin and see you around.

      I don't think you can go wrong with this tattoo because it has so many variations. My favorite is the psychedelic one in the second picture, with the blue tail. It reminds me of my growing up years in the 60s. Voting this Up and Beautiful.

      Was particularly interested in the star tats for some reason Ricky and know i know why: one needs to be careful of their design and artist here cause it's a thin line between good and not so good with the star style.
