What's the Deal with STAR Tattoos? Why is it mainly Gay Guys that get them? and if a Str8 has Stars Tattoos Does that mean he could be Gay/Bi???

    Nearly everyone I know who has a star or stars tattoos is gay n it seems to be a big appeal to gay guys, anyone have any thoughts on this?

    I bought this strength training book that has a bunch of exercises and how to do them with proper form. The model demonstrating the movements has three large stars tattooed on his lateral delt...I immediately pegged him as gay icon_lol.gif

    This is the model from the strength training book I mentioned (the one on the right).

    I do notice that the kinds of star tattoos mostly seen on straight women and gay men are stars that are either completely filled in or just outlined; and they tend to be placed in groups or in a flowing "stream". Star tattoos on straight guys tend to be nautical stars...

    Just my observations. As to why I see this pattern? Other than some snarky comment about Lisa Frank notebooks, I can't come up with a reasonable explanation. icon_cool.gif

    LOL. I have wondered about those sometimes myself. Google dredges up dozens of web sites that purport to explain. They all begin "Star tattoos are important symbols with great meaning..." and conclude "basically it means anything you want it to mean." icon_rolleyes.gif

    FWIW I didn't see any mention of "gay" anywhere in those rambles.

    The guy in the exercise booklet does look mighty gay. Lol and the others with the non nautical stars look gay too.

    Also what's up with guys with paw tats on their legs thins and arms. I see some women usually lesbians with the same thing.

    Just in point of fact, none of those images are really "nautical stars." A compass rose has four cardinal points and may have four subordinate points. You'd never find your way home navigating with a five-pointed one.

    It's my understanding that the five-point "nautical star" was a symbol that has historically been tattooed on sailors - hence the designation "nautical". The image itself was supposed to represent the North Star, an invaluable tool for early naval navigation, and not necessarily the directions on a compass rose.

    Obviously it symbolizes a cult.
    They have a secret handshake, a secret password. The whole nine yards.

    I know having a star can mean something maybe important but every time I see it on a guy I just think....gay... Doesn't matter if its the one star or a cluster but I do know a guy who has a cluster of stars of his arm he has a gf n a kid but mixed with his chinos I still reckon he is gay lol just seems like a cult or trend thing that majority of gay guys have stars as tattoos

    All gay guys have dicks, if a straight guy has a dick, does it mean he is gay? No.

    The reason most gay people chose stars is probably just a coincidence.

    I have a star tattoo and it had nothing to do with me being gay and everything to do with me being 18, stupid and pointing at the picture on the wall at the tattoo shop and saying, "that one." icon_lol.gif

    It was to point out that just because one group of people have this one thing in common with another group of people.. Didn't mean that they're gay. Why many gay people have stars I don't know, but that sure as hell doesn't mean that if you have a star tattoo means you're gay!

    On the back of their arms and their calves = they are gay because they show when they are on their backs with their legs in the airicon_idea.gificon_idea.gif

    Especially the Moravian Stars.

    Fair point man but man just askin this as few guys that I know who have alot of tattoo say that they wouldn't get a stars tattoos as they said it was gay and alot of gay guys I know all have star tattoos, just never really seen straight Guys with it n do have a bi mate that has them, could be that certain parts of the world ppl have a different out look on it and some guys get them as it means somethin to them others just follow the trend

    I just assumed it was the popular thing at the time. Kind of like those thorns around the bicep were at one point too.

    It's not a QT signal straight guys are aware of it as well. Straight men do not wear wrist bands on their forearms that is a giveaway as well.
