Tattoos are beautiful way to express yourself, commemorate something important, and share your interests — but not everyone is ready for an entire sleeve of ink. While one of my favorite expressions is "go big or go home", Harry Potter-inspired micro tattoos give me a whole new perspective on tiny tattoos. When they're this small and this perfect, it's hard not to want them all.
Micro tattoos had a moment in 2015, and it seems like everyone from Kendall Jenner and Hailey Baldwin to Sam Smith got in on the trend this last year. Subtle yet beautiful, it's easy to see why they have become so popular. From delicate flowers to single words to linear designs, these micro tattoos can be anything you can imagine, but the very best ones are, obviously, book related.
What better book to get inked up for than your favorite fantasy series, the books that defined your childhood, and the stories that made you the adult you are today: Harry Potter. With seven books, eight (soon to be nine) movies and a forthcoming play worth of material, there's no end to the mini Harry Potter-inspired tattoo possibilities. Are you getting the itch to get inked yet?
