Cool Starfish Tattoos – Meanings + Designs

Starfish Tattoo meaning rebirth (like a phoenix), intuition, salvation (like a lighthouse), guidance (like a koi fish), love (just like a dolphin), freedom, etc. Another good reason to have a starfish tattoo is to cover some sort of scar. Most people get tattoos when they want to cover something (a scar?) on their body. It’s a way to forget the reason you got the star in the first place. So what does a starfish tattoo mean? Now you know! Do you need some pictures?

Starfish Tattoo Placement ideas – behind your ear, on your back, on your elbow, on your finger, on your wrist. Most important – before doing any tattoo, be sure you really want it. Be sure it really means something for you. It doesn’t have to mean something for someone else, it should mean something for you. Here is an idea – hide a scar. Hide something from your body you don’t want others (even you) to see. Here are some other pictures:
