I got this tattoo about 6 months ago at Tattooed Planet in Tempe, AZ, as a Tribute To Harry Potter, my childhood, and my favorite character Bellatrix Lestrange. This is her Azkaban tattoo that can be found on the left side of her neck. The first two symbols represent her runes, ‘93’ is the year she was admitted into Azkaban. Followed by the Deathly Hallows Symbol, as my own addition.
I remember the day the very first Harry Potter Book was released to the United States, my mom took me to go pick it up from the bookstore where I had it on reserve. My books were my only friends growing up. Soon, Harry, Ron, Hermione and the rest of the characters became my world. I waited anxiously for each book to be released and soon, for the movies.
I’m proud to say i’ve attended every midnight book and movie release since then. My love and adoration for this series goes beyond what words can explain. It gave me light in my darkest years. From loneliness as a child, bullying, boyfriends, heart breaks, betrayal, death and drug addiction in my adult years. Harry Potter has always been there for me. The bond I share with those around me who share my love and dedication to this series is indescribable.
After all this time, Always.
