If you thought that you were a true Harry Potter fan because you own the collector’s edition wand and you always went to the midnight movie screenings, that doesn’t make you better than the average Potter-loving Muggle. To prove that you are still obsessed with Harry Potter, even after all this time, you need to get a tattoo (and understand the line I loosely quoted). These Harry Potter tattoos separate the true fans who would stayed with Harry until the very end, from the ones who are dedicated, but rather show their love with a fancy HP smokey eye instead of permanent body modification.
Put on your wizard robes and your (fake) round glasses, and take a look at 25 brilliant Harry Potter tattoos:
A Hogwarts school crest is great if you can’t choose a favorite school house. Though I don’t know why anyone would consider anything but Gryffindor…
I like that this person committed to their house. The Sorting Hat would not have to think too hard about where to place her.
This is a well thought out design. I like how they combined the Deathly Hallows symbol with the Forbidden Forest and a Dumbledore quote.
The golden snitch is a popular tattoo, but this placement is one of my favorites. It wouldn’t be half as good if the snitch didn’t look like it was mid-flight.
Someone wasn’t content trekking it all the way to London just so they could take a photograph of the 9¾ platform, they wanted the number on their back too.
Though I still get upset when I think about this part of the book, and that evil Dolores Umbridge and her blood quill, I will concede that it makes a great tattoo.
I love how the scarf has been incorporated into the Gryffindor shield and how the glasses are overlapping the other symbols.
Speaking of glasses, this is another popular HP tattoo. You can get the lightning bolt scar or the glasses, but I suggest you get both.
9. Dark Mark
I question what type of person would want to get this as a tattoo, but I can still admire their dedication to Harry Potter. If I didn’t know the meaning of the mark, I would think that this is a brilliant tattoo.
In my nerdy mind, nothing can get cooler than this. The person who thought to do this is a genius. This has changed my mind about white tattoos.
Harry Potter has so many excellent quotes that it is difficult to choose a favorite. This is a very sentimental one, and doesn’t scream, “I LOVE HARRY POTTER.”
