What do two star tattoos mean?


Two-star tattoos are a variation on the nautical star tattoo design and usually mean that the wearer has survived some dangerous activity while working on the sea. The coloration, placement and number of stars change the meaning. For example, a green star on the right and a red star on the left of the chest means that the wearer has survived some sort of dangerous sea activity or has won a bar fight in a foreign port.

Star tattoos with five points are known as nautical tattoos. Originally these tattoos were worn primarily by sailors or Marines but they gained popularity in the 1990s and are now worn by many different types of people regardless of their profession or experiences.
