If you're not a Harry Potter fan, you've probably seen a Harry Potter tattoo and assumed it was some weird symbol. Maybe you thought that "always" referred to a current or past relationship, or the tiny lightning bolt was some kitchy thing for people obsessed with thunderstorms.
The true magic behind Harry Potter tattoos is that many of them are so low-key, you wouldn't even know they were inspired by the wizarding world unless you got a closer look (or, you know, asked the person with the tattoo.) If you were thinking of getting some magical ink to make up for the fact that your Hogwarts letter is STILL lost in the mail, we got you covered.
That's no ordinary teacup.
The use of color and detail in this upper-arm piece is so bold, we love it!
