Most of these answers are ridiculous.
I personally have a small star tattoo on my arm and in no way am I a satanist, a gang member or anything along those lines, I am 25 and a christian with a decent background and a bright future. When I was  younger, I had a very bad temper and I would go outside and look at the stars to calm me. To me, my tattoo represents staying calm and that everything will wind up ok...

To the last person you just contradicted yourself at the end of that paragraph lol. Either your daughter is gay or bi, is a gang member, or just wants a tattoo she thinks is cute. And if it is the first two she may withhold the truth.

When it comes to the gang thing the five pointed star does
not mean one gang in particular. If a gang uses a five star, that means they
are aligned with "people nation" which means somewhat of an alignment
to all the other gangs that use the 5 point to represent themselves. 6 pointed
star means an alignment to the "folk nation". But given the facts
about your particular situation I'd say your daughter is a Satanist. Being a Satanist
is not like what the television and the media would lead you to believe. They
don't worship an evil god of the underworld; well most of them don't anyway.
Most Satanists only believe that they are god. So absolutely nothing to worry
about if that were in fact the case so rest easy and don't lose any sleep over
it.”

A star tattooed on the wrist in many places is to show how much jail time a person has done. 5 stars tattooed around the elbow in a circle means that you're a transexual in Brasil and some other Latin American countries and also in parts of USA. This I the reality of it all, not the symbolism of 'the star represents the relationship between the human body and nature, my love of curtains ...' is nonsense, a star is a star, end of.

I see loads of kids with stars, they get them because they're one of the simplest tattoos and it's in fashion. She might end up getting more complex tattoos when shes older, the only thing to then worry about is that she doesn't go crazy and become covered in them and go to a reputable tattoo parlour. Also if she plans to get a chinese symbol tattoo make sure to find out that it does mean 'spirit, love etc' not 'rear exit' or 'chicken fried rice'.

There's many reasons for a 5 point star.. A lot of females get them cause they think its a cute tattoo I know many people who have a star on them but have no significant reason for it.. Also it could be gang related but since she is a college student and if she is a good student I doubt she is mixing herself with gangs.. I wouldnt really worry about it she probably just thought it was a cute tat.. Or symbolizing herself as a gay citizen.

Five Point Star, also known as a pentacle or pentagram, is commonly depicted with a circle enclosing the star and is a popular symbol among pagans and wiccans. The five points typically represent earth, wind, fire, water, and our spirit, which takes its proper place above the four elements. The pentacle (the five-point star drawn as overlapping outlines) is considered a potent sigil of protection and balance and is worn as an adornment by pagans just as the crucifix is worn by Christians. There is also something called a “pentagrammaton” (a Greek word that means “five-lettered name”, which refers to Yeheshuah, the Hebrew name of Jesus) that has many representations, one of which is a pentagram that incorporates a yin-yang symbol to emphasize its harmonizing nature.

People who are attracted to a five point star tattoo are usually very versatile, adventurous, progressive, and always striving to find answers to the many questions that life poses. Since the five point star is the sign of freedom and independence (just take a look at the American flag), these people want to be totally unrestrained, and know how to motivate people around them. Five point star tattoo design people also love adventure, are apt to be multi-talented and happy-go-lucky, and have an innate ability to think through complex matters and analyze them quickly. Lmao indeed I agree with the last remark of stupid smart people and may I add it's in human nature to give the simplest answer e.g. God created the univers and ask them how they'll answer he's powerfull and can do anything lmfao same goes for a 5pts star then your in a gang.

                           Althought my answer its the origin of it but nowaday thank you fu...ing internet with facebook and all of those crazy meet people site wich allows to add not just friends but a pack loads of strangers(just on facebook a girl has an average of 100+friends) a lot of girls thinks they are little star and some of them just tattooed themselve with it.

          Ultimatly for you my friend if you want to have the real answer just ask her not us we don't know any of her background stories.

A 5 point nautical star means good luck at sea, hence the "nautical" part! And the crips gang were originally started as an anti violence, anti drug neighborhood watch, who the bloods copied so stop making stuff up people. Also a star is an easy way to fill space with a tattoo especially in difficult to tattoo areas like the elbow. Don't read into it too much and just talk to your child, if she has the trust and love enough to tell you she's gay I'm sure asking her about her choice of tattoo will not offend.

Sirius...  Which has been adorned by the occult and secret societies since the beginning of time. Many ancient artifacts as well as writings reveal that our origins stem from Sirius. The Book of Enoch1 which was banned by the church discusses the Watchers. The Qur'an states that Allah is the Lord Sirius. The Dallas Cowboys use it and for a good reason. Dallas being located on the 33rd parallel. Street gangs use the 5pt star not understanding that the origins of their groups were created by the hierarchy of these mystery religions. Albert Pike and the tetragrammaton are worth looking into as well....

I have a five point star tattoo. I am a teacher and one my inter-city students asked me about it. The star I have represents sisterhood (it's a sister tat) and is made up of eight notes so it represents my love of music. You should ask your daughter about it. She may harbor a very interesting story. (the student thought it was gang related. Ha! I'm a white/music minister/teacher!)

The five point star is called a pentagram. Here's more information on pentagrams
. There seems to be lots of meanings behind this symbol, but the one that I think comes to mind for most people is satanism, but I am not sure if it actually does. There were lots of bands in the 80's that wanted to portray a satanic image so they used the pentagram for some of their art work.

A 5 Point Star has a wide range of associations. If the collinear edges are joined together a pentagram is produced which is considered a symbol of mystical and magical significance. It has been associated with Venus and the worship of the Goddess Venus. So it is a possibility that your daughter has such inclinations. It also has associations with Freemasons. So you would have to check it out with your daughter.

Hi Rosella, I wouldn't be concerned. Here is the historical story behind the "Star" tattoo: The lesbian and gay connection is the one that does not seem so obvious at first. Historically back in the 1940's and 50's when alternative lifestyles were not the norm and often women had to hide their alternative choices they would sport a hidden nautical star. Often they would get the star tattoo done on the inside of their wrist where it could easily be hidden by a watch during the day but shown off in the evening when out on the town. Today many lesbians where the nautical star tattoo to show their connection with their early pioneering sisters.

Stars are often encountered as symbols, and many cases the meaning of a particular star symbol may depend upon the number points it has, and sometimes the orientation of these points as well. As a light shining in the darkness, the star is often considered a symbol of truth, of the spirit and of hope. The symbol of the star embodies the concept of the divine spark within each of us. Their nocturnal nature leads stars to represent the struggle against the forces of darkness and the unknown.

Stars with a specific design have taken on an explicit meaning and symbolism on their own.
