Literary Paraphernalia: Tattoos for Every Harry Potter Fan

This week, the internet has been buzzing with the news that J.K. Rowling published a short story on Pottermore reuniting fans with their favorite magical people. Except now, Harry and the gang are in their thirties with hair beginning to gray.

I haven’t finished reading Rowling’s new story yet, because summer, for me, is really less of a break from school work than it is a time to do said school work sweating in ninety-degree weather, with a fan on high pointed in my direction. Seriously, Portland, I thought I left California to get away from the heat. But I plan on finishing the story as soon as I can escape.

All this talk about Harry Potter has made me nostalgic for the books I read so fervently as an adolescent, the same age as Harry and growing up every year with him, that my brother-in-law once hid The Order of Phoenix from me so I’d stop reading and rejoin society. (I got it back, and all was well—see what I did there?) In order to celebrate our reunion with Harry, I spent some time searching for some of the best Harry Potter tattoos out there (or at least the best on Instagram), which you can check out below.
