My Harry Potter-inspired owl. I wanted something to represent my love for Harry Potter that was a little different than what  you usually see. I’m so happy with how it turned out!
It’s the second part of what will eventually be a half-sleeve dedicated to my favorite books, shows, and movies.

My Harry Potter “mudblood” tattoo.

I’ve been a fan of the books since I was in fifth grade. It was part of my childhood, it’s what really encouraged me to start reading and the books hold a special place in my heart.

Being mixed the tattoo almost has a dual meaning for me and I love it!
