Those are called "nautical stars" and while their origin comes from sailors, it seems that a lot of people these days get them tattooed on their body. The origin of the nautical star is that they were meant for sailors to find their way. So people nowadays use them as symbolism to use them to find their way through life.
Hope that helps.
The nautical stars are really just a fad. Its origins are cool but people say the meanings all are different. I would not stick with something, unless it couldn't have a variable of change until the day you die.
thank you for giving me that meaning, i appreciate it. honestly, im a filipina.
hope we'll be friends

What is it with so many otherwise sane people marking up their bodies with tattoos? I don't get it.Tattoos are permanent. Years from now you may not want what you want now. What's the deal with that?
