15 'Harry Potter' Tattoos For Every Aspiring Witch & Wizard

Breaking news: J.K. Rowling has had a lasting impact on the world. Harry Potter 's certainly stuck with a lot of people on an emotional and political level, and you know what that means: A lot of people have gotten tattoos inspired by it. A whole lot. A crapton.

Granted, if you survey the general population you're gonna find a lot of people who would tattoo themselves with just about anything, but Harry Potter tattoos remain a testament to something bigger. I have several I'm itching to go out and get right this second, and I know multiple people who have bonded over their shared geeky inkage at the beginning of lasting relationships. Harry Potter tattoos are awesome. Here are some great ones.
