My husband, Chris, and I got Harry Potter tattoos on the same day. I got a Golden Snitch on my thigh which might serve as the basis for a larger Harry Potter piece around it. Chris got a Dark Mark replicated right where it should go: on his left forearm. He claims that it no longer burns, but I’m not so certain. ;)
This is Brenda's Harry Potter tattoo:
For the release of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, the bookseller where I bought my copy handed out some gifts. Among these were some Bertie Bott's, HP-style glasses, and a lightning bolt temporary tattoo. I carried this little stick-on tattoo for several years in my wallets, bags, etc until one day I just decided to get it tattooed on my shoulder as a tribute to the book series and its characters with whom I've grown up.
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is officially in theatres today! How many of you already saw it at midnight?
These are Zena's Harry Potter tattoos:
Lumos is on my left wrist. It is the spell from the Potter books that illuminates the caster's wand tip.
Nox is on my right wrist. It is the spell that extinguishes that very light.
They not only represent the Harry Potter series, but also the fact that everyone has both light and dark inside.
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince comes out in theatres tomorrow!
This is Kara's Harry Potter tattoo:
I decided to get the golden snitch because it's such a simple object, and yet it has such significance later in the series. I chose the sketched, black and white version to stay truer to the books. I've been reading Harry Potter since I was 9. It's the longest commitment I've ever made to anything. I don't know if that's sad or not. Haha.

This is Sarah's tattoo:
My tattoo is a lightning bolt for many reasons, the foremost of which is Harry Potter. I often say I love Harry enough that it's almost frightening. Harry Potter was the common ground that led me to my best friend, and when we used to write notes in high school, I'd sign my name with the lightning bolt. It became a symbol for Harry, friendship, and my love of reading. I had a lightning bolt charm that I wore as a necklace for years and years, and the tattoo is that necklace.

This is Samantha's Harry Potter tattoo.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince comes out in theatres in 4 days.
These are three little stars that appear on either end of the chapter title at the top of every page in all of the Harry Potter books. I got this because it is not a blatant reference to Harry Potter, but more of a secret one that only people that have read it will recognize. The series has a lot of personal meaning for me, so I thought an understated tribute would be appropriate.
