The one with the power to vanquish the Dark Lord approaches… born to those who have thrice defied him, born as the seventh month dies… and the Dark Lord will mark him as his equal, but he will have power the Dark Lord knows not… and either must die at the hand of the other for neither can live while the other survives… the one with the power to vanquish the Dark Lord will be born as the seventh month dies….

Sorry for the low quality photo, and the overly exposed midsection, but as promised here is my Potter tattoo.  I chose the two things that Dumbledore gave Harry in his will: the sword of Gryffindor and the Golden Snitch.

Harry Potter molded my childhood.  I found my love for books at a very young age, and these were the most memorable books that allowed me to slip into a world of magic and friendship just with the crackle of the spine and the flip of a page.  I will never regret permanently paying tribute to my favorite series as a child in ink, just as J.K. Rowling laid her ink down for others to cherish.

All was well. ❤
