30 Of The Most Insane Harry Potter Tattoos That Will Make You Want To Get Inked

It’s July 31, which for me means one thing: it’s Harry Potter’s birthday! Yes, I’m aware that Harry is (technically) a fictional character, but his birthday is still important. In fact, I think Harry’s birthday is the only fictional birthday I am aware of… and I read A LOT.

Like so many other people out there, I am a huge Harry Potter fan. I know, I know, you are too, and maybe you want to say you’re a bigger fan than me. I don’t consider my love for Harry a competition, so I mean, whatever. Do you. Anyway, I can’t imagine my life without the Harry Potter series. They are truly the most ~magical~ books I’ve ever read, and I’m not even trying to be cutesy here. This is why I feel like Harry’s birthday is worth celebrating.

My initial goal was to start reading the series again, for at least the 11th time, but I can’t do that right now… so I’m settling for tattoo inspiration instead. I don’t have any tattoos, but if I get one, I think I might want an HP one. Feel the same way? Check out these 30 insane Harry Potter tattoos that are so cool, they’ll make you want to go out and get inked. And let’s all say it together now – happy birthday, Harry!

    Those are some nice ones. I think the Always deer is my favorite. My daughter and I celebrate July 31st as well. We make a birthday cake and watch HP movies and dress in house colors. Here is my little witch and her kitty and the birthday cake my daughter made. She put a deer and a forest on top.
