A "tattoo traditionalists" like the old school tattoos. Things that are done in black ink and nothing that would be considered popular. They feel that each tattoo should be unique and say something about the individual. They are strongly against anyone that gets a tattoo because it is a popular design. For example they are against star tattoos because of their popularity. They would most likely be against the good old tribal arm band tattoo or a barbed wire arm band etc. You know the tattoo designs that are so popular and done over and over again. The "tattoo traditionalists just hate these.
The new generation of "tattooers" are pretty much the opposite. They like what is cool and hip and want to get tattoos done that are popular and in style. They will often look at celebrity tattoos or the tattoos of friends to get their ideas from which they might do some customizing and etc. Their designs typically feature a lot of color and are bright!
I have written more about these groups in other articles so for now I will stick to the topic at hand of star tattoos. You see there is a phenomenal growth in star tattoo designs. Tons of people want to get everything from simple star tattoos, groupings of moon and star tattoos, nautical stars, and even shooting stars. Star tattoo designs are pretty much everywhere.
So why are they so popular?
1. Star tattoo designs and celestial tattoos are especially popular themes among women and this is a rapidly growing market.
2. Star tattoos can be very gender neutral. Men and women can get star tattoos done.
3. Star tattoos are often inexpensive to get designs of and cost very little to get done.
4. Star tattoos often make a great first tattoo design for someone who is a little worried about getting started in tattoos. They are small and easily covered up and also less painful to get because of their size and therefore popular among first timers.
5. Star tattoos because of their size can fit into or among other existing designs or can make great cover up of a bad tattoo.
6. Stars are pretty universal symbols of good things. Most all religions have some type of star symbolism and star and stars don't make a strong statement about the world but just kind of thought of as fun and light hearted.
So who is right? Are star tattoos a great design to get done like the new generation of tattooers is doing or should you avoid them at all costs because they are not unique and they are overdone like the traditionalists would say?
Well, like all great questions in life and in the world of tattoo design the decision really is your to make. It will be your tattoo and one that you will live with for a long time. I think the best middle ground between the two groups is to just get something you like. If you like star tattoos for their own sake if they are popular or not then go ahead and get one and who cares. However if you are just getting a star tattoo because your friend just did or because the latest pop diva got one then it might be better to wait. Either way the choice is your to be made.

Do not Make Mistakes To Not Make Cover Up Tattoo
General rule in making a tattoo is the size of the new tattoo designs must be greater than the previous tattoo. Do not aim too small to cover a stain or tattoo your long and got bored and wanted to replace the new. So make a new tattoo design will provide great opportunity to cover an old tattoo long you want to delete. This is a mistake if you are too hasty decision.
There is nothing like setting the past straight and correcting what some people might have called a mistake from the beginning. The final product is a VOID stamp over the name Tracy.

A generic Maori tattoo design is not something any sane person should just settle on. There are many things people can settle on, but tattoos that you don't really like are not one of them. Not in this day and age. The truth is that many people continue to do exactly this when it comes to selecting artwork for tattoos. Needless to say, a number of them end up regretting that decision, but by that time it is a little bit too late. Some people settling on generic art because they are tired of the endless searching they do and come up with next to nothing. It doesn't even remotely matter why people do it, especially for something as great as a Maori tattoo design can be, it just should not be done.
With that said, here is what you need to avoid when looking for a quality Maori tattoo design online these days...
This main point happens to be the most crucial when looking for a Maori tattoo design. For one, it will save you a bunch of time. Secondly, it will keep you away fro ma majority of the generic artwork that seems to litter the internet. I am talking about search engines. They are simply perfect for finding just about anything online in 2008, but for tattoos, they are the bottom of the barrel and can actually be detrimental to your search. You can keep using search engines for just about everything else you need, but don't rely on them for tattoos.
What happens is Google and Yahoo will just send you and your browser straight to the thousands and thousands of cookie-cutter websites on the web. These websites are mostly loaded with generic designs that are over a half a decade old and the content they do have is already plastered on hundreds of other websites. It makes you wonder how many people out there might have that Maori tattoo design inked on their skin, doesn't it? I mean, it has been seen by millions of people of the years, so there is a decent chance of a hundred or so people picking that particular Maori tattoo design you might be thinking about.
That's the bad part, but the good part is that finding any quality Maori tattoo design online can be done with an alternative solution...
This alternative solution to finding a great Maori tattoo design happens to be an internet forum. There are hundreds of great, huge forums on the web and each one is filled to the brim with its own insider knowledge about tattoos and the websites that feature original, quality artwork for tattoos. These websites you find through forums to usually pull up very high in search engines, which is a good thing now that you know to look there. I still use them to this day and they never seem to disappoint. Only a small percentage of people even remotely know that they can use forums to find hidden gems like a Maori tattoo design, so you can be assured that millions of people will not be seeing those designs.
