hardcore star?

Recommended Posts

Guest Pilau Hands

Could someone explain the frequent appearance/meaning/significance of all this? stars? swallows? meh? They're everywhere in the "rock n' roll" scene nowadays. Before I go shaving my balls, tatooing birds on my ass, and worshipping the devil, I want to know what it's for.

i'm so sick of the stereotype hc ink. almost every hc and emo kid i know has atleast the stars or the birds. i guess i can live with it as long as they're not doing any of the other "extreme" bme shit. self castration, subcisions, exposures, fuck that shit. its disgusting. what would make you want to cut your sac open and let your nutz hang out? why would you wanna cut your dingy in half?? it makes no sense. i fucking hate that.

And that, you moron, is what makes it THEIR body NOT yours.

 

its not like they are trying to cut you up....christ you sound like a "concerned parents" group

 

 

on the stars; they are regarded as a traditional western tattoo. Why do various tribes get THEIR trad tattoos; because they mean somehting to them........I mean, you catch shit for getting tribal tats because they are out of their cultural context, and you catch shit for getting the tats traditional to your "tribe". daftbuggers

 

what would make you want to get spray paint and destroy anothers property?? it makes no sense. i fucking hate that.:cool:

I understand that they're "traditional," and I wasn't knocking them, just trying to get background information. I used to draw the nautical star when I was a kid. I can't find the nautical use for it.

 

The star has been a popular symbol forever and ever. It's not surprising that people want it as a tattoo, I myself am in the process of picking a design (not a sxe design).

 

Zack, any help? I'll mail you a graham cracker!

well, despite the dweeby little rant up there

 

www.bme.freeq.com

is probably yhe best place to look up the history of those stars. I must reiterate though that I don't think they really have a universal symbolic meaning at this stage, they are decorative and there's nothing wrong with that. I myself have a few tattoos which are just LOADED with personal symbolism, and I think it would be nice to have some that I just really liked the way they looked.............................

i have a design that's both original, and on the bandwagon!

 

i really like the swallow, but have my doubts about everyone being able to pull it off...we've all seen some bad tatoos.
