Once regarded as marks of people who were in gangs and promiscuous, tattoos are now commonplace. With an increased amount of the population using their bodies as a canvas, we have the privilege of seeing some amazing work. Also part of this evolution is great tattoos paying homage to cinematic and literature masterpieces. Since I am quite the Harry Potter nerd, here is a look at nine of the most magical HP tattoos.
9. The Golden Trio
For those who don't know, this tattoo stands for 'The King, The Boy Who Lived, The Brightest Witch of Her Age.' This is such a cute and simple tribute to Ron, Harry, and Hermione.
8. The Mirror of Erised
This is one of the saddest moments in Harry Potter: finding Harry sitting in front of the Mirror of Erised, longing for his parents. This is such a great tribute to that scene.
7. I Must Not Tell Lies
No movie or literature villain boils my blood like Dolores Umbridge. This is such a great reminder of that. The sight of this makes me angry at her evil punishments.
6. Hogwarts on The Marauder's Map
This is truly unique and I have never seen anything like this. What a great idea to pay tribute to the school that every young wizard wants to attend.
5. Night View of Hogwarts
What a beautiful black and white portrait of Hogwarts at night. This looks like it took quite some time but the result is amazing!
4. Harry Potter Collage
What a badass (and painful) tattoo incorporating so many themes from Harry Potter! This looks like it could be the cover of a book!
3. The Three Brothers
The story of the Three Brothers is one of my favorite parts of Harry Potter. This tattoo is such an awesome tribute to that story within the story. I love how they even included Death.
2. The Deathly Hallows
This image of The Deathly Hollows with Harry inside of it doing his patronus charms has gone viral, and rightfully so. It is beautiful and creative and has inspired so many other Deathly Hollows tattoos, like my number one choice!
1. The Ultimate Deathly Hallows
This by far is my favorite Harry Potter themed tattoo yet! The colors are beautiful, the detail is amazing, and when completed, will be next level of awesomeness! I might be a little biased on this one though; this is my latest tattoo and the beginning of my Harry Potter sleeve!
You obviously know I love Harry Potter themed tats; now show me yours!
