12 ‘Harry Potter’ tattoos that rival an Unbreakable Vow

"You got the letter. You went to Hogwarts. We were all there together."

Hypable asked readers to share images of the Harry Potter tattoos they’ve acquired to permanently and proudly display their devotion to the boy wizard.

Here’s what Hypable readers like you had to say about the Harry Potter tattoos they have that were inspired by J.K. Rowling’s wizarding world.

Some tattoos are clever and quirky…

Some are proud to be a little naughty…

And others just let us remember that united we are brave…

“(My tattoo) Symbolizes to never give into fear and hatred. Seek love and friendship, they can last a lifetime.” – @Velvet214

Some tattoos remind us to create our own light amidst the darkness…

“To remind me to replace dark thoughts and emptiness with happy thoughts and warmth! Obviously used together with chocolate :)” – @kendravictoria

“Dumbledore did say that happiness can be found even in the darkest of times if only one remembers to turn on the light. Well, lumos has been my go-to spell for that. And now I have it for keeps.” – @bee_muses

Some bring us back to the beginning…

“It represents everything Harry Potter means to me. Not just the books and the story, but also the fandom, the community, the friends. 9 3/4 is where is all started. The adventure. It’s the entrance to the magical world of Hogwarts and friends. Home.

And others promise us the magic will never end.

“Harry Potter played a very important role in my childhood. Some of my most treasured memories revolve around these books and movies. When I closed the final book, I felt a sense of sadness, joy, and contentment (even if Harry did pick stupid names for his children). When I was deciding what my second tattoo should be, I knew that I wanted to pay homage to these books that helped to define me. My tattoo is a reminder that while the series may be complete, the story and characters will live on forever.” – Hannah B.

“I got the tattoo a year to the day after I met J.K. Rowling. I got it to commemorate that day, but also to keep myself strong. I see the tattoo and I think about Harry and all that he went through and I'm reminded that I can get through any struggle.” – @KaraSnape
