9 Awesome Harry Potter Tattoos for Any Potterhead ...

By Kelly

With it being such an incredible and huge series, it is no wonder there are a ton of Harry Potter tattoos for Potterheads. From symbols to quotes, Harry Potter fans have gotten quite creative in expressing their love for the books. If you are a huge fan of the books and are looking for a way to express your love, these Harry Potter tattoos are a great starting point to find the perfect one for you.

1 Deathly Hallows

Deathly Hallows Of all of the Harry Potter tattoos I have seen, this is the most popular. The combined triangle, circle, and line make one of the most recognizable symbols from the books. This is a great option for a Potterhead because you can make it as small and discrete or as large as you want. I have seen if placed behind people’s ears or on their forearms for the world to see.

2 Lightening Bolt

Lightening Bolt Another iconic Harry Potter symbol would be the lightning bolt. It is the scar that sets Harry apart and is a marker of his destiny to fight Voldemort. Just like the Deathly Hallows, the lightning bolt can be as small or big as you want. You could even go hard core Potterhead and put it on your forehead, right where Harry’s scar was.

3 Mischief Managed

Mischief Managed Any fan of the books knows this line has so much meaning behind it. This tattoo is perfect for any joker or prankster who takes after the Weasley twins. You can embellish this tattoo with small footprints like the ones found on the Marauders Map, or you can keep it simple and just use a fun font.

4 Spellbinding

Spellbinding What would any book about witches and wizards be without magic spells? The spells are not the most important part of the books, but some spell-related tattoos can have a deeper meaning. “Lumos,” which creates light, can be a small source of inspiration to always keep a bright out look on life. And “Alohomora,” which is used to unlock keys, can be a reminder that you can overcome any obstacle in your way.

5 “Always”

“Always” It is just one word and it probably has more meaning than any other quote from the book. “Always” is what Snape responded with when Dumbledore asked if he still loved Lily, Harry’s mother. For the more romantic Harry Potter fans, this is the perfect quote to sum up your love for the series. If you know you will "always” have a special place for Harry Potter in your heart, this tattoo is perfect to commemorate it with.

6 The Golden Snitch

The Golden Snitch Quidditch is a huge part of the Harry Potter world and personally one of my favorite parts of the books. A Golden Snitch is the perfect Potter tattoo for fans of the sport. If you are a die hard fan of the books, you know the Golden Snitch Harry first caught has a huge impact on his adventures in the 7th book. It is so much more meaningful that just a part of the sport.

7 Patronus

Patronus Be honest, you always wondered what your Patronus would be. Well, with a Patronus tattoo, you can pick your own Patronus. You can base it off of the characters', like Harry’s stag, Ron’s Jack Russell terrier, or Hermione’s otter, or you can come up with a new animal that represents your personality. To keep it from looking just like a random animal tattoo, you can have the words “Expecto Patronum” written around it.

8 9 ¾

9 ¾ Platform 9 ¾ was the gateway for Harry Potter to enter the magical world, which makes it one of the most adorable Harry Potter tattoos. It's great to commemorate the books, which were your personal gateway into the magical world of Harry Potter. To some muggles, it will just look like a fraction, but you will know the importance 9 ¾ has to you.

9 Quote

Quote The Harry Potter series is filled with quotes that are perfect to live by. “It does not do well to dwell on dreams and forget to live,” and “Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if only one remembers to turn on the light” are two of my favorite quotes. They are not only great quotes to inspire you every time you look at them, they will remind you of a magical world that has been such a huge part of your life.

You can be a huge Potterhead without getting a Harry Potter tattoo, but if you love tattoos and want to show your love for Harry Potter, these are some great options. Harry Potter was such a creative series, so don’t be afraid to get creative with your tattoo. What did you think of these Harry Potter tattoos? What are some other great Potterhead tattoos that you have seen? Do you think it is a good idea to express your Harry Potter love with a tattoo?
