What do those mean? I see those on a lot of people and there's always two of them on opposing body parts like knees, calves, hands etc... /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

they are nautical stars, classic tattoo work, the origin is simple, look at an old boat and see the stars on the boat that are 3d and look like that. Bam there you go, probably started with old sailors. Punk rock has taken them over. Do you bother taking care of your tatts? I've never had scabbing on any of mine. No offense but the fact that you have some overdone things on your arms that you have no clue what they even are is a problem you might want to think a lot about.

Yeah that thing you thought was cool looking may be a "insert bad intentioned group here" symbol

I only have a 7 scar on my finger though so, I'm not all "experienced"

I dunno.........one of my tats scabbed up a bit at the bottom when I got it done, and I took primo care of them. Of course, that was back in the old days. I got my first tattoo when you were 4!!!! /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

those aren't nautical stars however. The 3d effect inner lines are the thing that make a nautical star a nautical star.
