My HP tattoo freshly inked today. I wanted something Harry related that could also incorporate my pre-existing lizard that I’ve had for 10 years now. The Marauders’ Map has always been one of my favourite parts of the series, so I combined my lizard animagus with the map footprints and text.
I absolutely adore it!

Deathly Hallows symbol - it’s on my left ankle. When I was growing up; well I dont wanna sugar coat this but I wasn’t a very happy girl. I was picked on all throughout primary school AND high school. I found comfort by reading. The first real book I read was Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone. I fell instantly in love and found myself entranced with the idea of witches, wizards and muggles. Harry Potter was my escape from reality, and it will forever remain to be.
I got my tattoo done at Wicked Ink in Penrith, NSW Australia.
I’ve had it for just over a year.
I’ve wanted a Harry Potter tattoo for years, but couldn’t figure out exactly what I wanted or how to incorporate all the elements I liked into one small tattoo. This one is on my ankle (I have 9 3/4 on my wrist) and I am in love with it.
Sarah at Time Bomb Tattoo in Frederick, MD came up with a cute way to incorporate everything I wanted, with subtle references to the book (chapter stars) and my favorite characters (Luna’s spectrespecs on the owl, Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes logo on the owl post letter, etc). As an added touch, she put a lightning bolt at the end of “mudblood.” You can find her here: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Eternal-Images-by-Sarah-Rice/349612318391732 or here: http://www.timebombtattoos.com/

I grew up with the Harry. I went through everything with him. And when my life got hard he is who I went to. I’d read and reread the books and watch and rewatch the movies. It got me through some of the toughest times in my life. That why this is my first tattoo, but definitely not my last.
I am so in love with my HP piece! It’s been a long time coming and I’m so lucky to have found an artist who loves Potter as much as I do.
It was done by the lovely Kitty Dearest in Melbourne. You can find her here: http://instagram.com/kittydearest

My tattoo on my left wrist. “Expecto Patronum,” a spell from Harry Potter. This is a light spell that protects against the darkness and the “dementors,” which are a symbol of the author’s struggle with depression herself. I got it near my self harm scars to remind myself that there is always light in the dark.

Double Harry Potter Chapter starts, and a quote, to show off my Gryffindor pride!
“You might belong in Gryffindor,
Where dwell the brave at heart,
Their daring, nerve, and chivalry
Set Gryffindors apart;”
I had this done at Mojo’s rising tattoo in Massena NY, by an artist named Morgan Plantz. It’s everything I was hoping it would be and more!
