    Calling all Harry Potter nerds!

    Advertisements
    I'm trying to design my next tattoo and need some help, if you'd be so inclined

    I feel like the easiest option for a Harry Potter themed tattoo would either be the Deathly Hallows symbol, or footprints with either "I solemnly swear I've been up to no good" or "Mischief Managed" by them.

    HOWEVER- my absolute FAVORITE saying from ALL of Harry Potter is "Wit beyond measure is man's greatest treasure." So I feel like I want to put "Wit beyond measure" on my right should blade with some kind of design encorporated. But I cannot for the LIFE of me think of what the design should be.

    Any thoughts???

    Not necessarily! My tramp stamp was incredibly intricate, and I kinda want to keep it as the focal point of my back. Ergo, I'm leaning toward something on the simple side this time.

    What about a raven outline since it's ravenclaw? Or the hogwarts coat of arms. You could do a want with sparks coming out of it and that saying coming out with the sparks.

    All possibilities Someone on fb has also suggested the ravenclaw diadem. While that's more intricate than I was planning, it would keep in theme with the winged creatures on my back, lol. I really like your idea of the wand though. Dammit, this is going to be difficult, isn't it

    Some very traditional old English type vine work could be gorgeous

    What do you mean? Can you elaborate, so I can try to picture it in my head?

    A quick pinterest search turned up this: The greatest idea for a Harry Potter tattoo. I ... | My body is a can
    I really like how it brings several things together, but I would worry that any fading would cause the words to blend together because it looks so delicate. At least if they did blend or fade you'd still have the outline.
