Yesterday I did my first (and probably only) tattoo: the Deathly Hallows symbol, behind my left ear. It came out exactly how I wanted, where I wanted. I’m so happy with it!
I’ve been wanting this for years now. Harry Potter was the first book that I bought, back when I was 9 years old (I’m 22 now). It’s my childhood, the door for some of my closests friends, what made me love literature and reading. The meanings of the symbol, as well, are so many to me.
I specially like how it reminds me that the ones that you love are always there with you. That you are braver than you think. That death is only the next big journey. And that is all in my head, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t real.
And I was with Harry until the very end. And this journey, this story, this love will always be a piece of me.
My new tattoo!
I already have two others but this one hurt the worst by far. I ended up getting sick and passing out halfway through. But it was totally worth it.
July 21, 2007- Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows released (book)
July 15, 2011- Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 released
July 18, 2012- My Harry Potter tattoo :) (smack dab in the middle of those two dates)
All was well.
