My tattoo basically is colored stars. I have 2 nautical stars (mariner meaning to help guide you your way back home), 1 is the color red/black for my oldest daughter (her birthstone color), & the slightly smaller one is amethyst/black for my younger daughter. The two nautical stars are surrounded by celestial shooting stars (symbolize living life to it's fullest and brightest) & in the color of green (It symbolizes growth, harmony, freshness, and fertility), with the shooting star lines bringing them all together.
I guess in my interpretation . . . I encourage my daughters to go after whatever they possibly can in life, but yet there is always a path home in times of need, encouragement, & most of all, Love.
Honestly, I've put a lot of thought into my "wanted" tattoo over the years. As my daughters have grown, the tattoo has become so much more meaningful to me. The stars kinda put it all together for me. God promises us no darkness, only light, so the stars are God & his light in this dark world sometimes.
