It is safe to say the words “Harry Potter” really needs no introduction.

J.K. Rowling through the series introduces us to a fantastic otherworldly wizarding universe which once we all wanted to be a part of. Both the books and the movies became hit instantly when they were launched.

It all starts when “the boy who lives” played by Daniel Radcliffe discovers his true identity as a wizard, at the age of eleven. That is when he is asked to become a student of one of the most respected school that exists for wizardry, Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry which is led by none other than the well-known wizard Albus Dumbledore. The wizarding world is a parallel to the already existing world which is unknown to young Harry. What expands the fandom and lead to the craze is the fact it offers an escape from reality. At a certain point of time we all wished for a letter from Hogwarts and wished we were secret witches or wizards. All the obstacles turning into adventures in order to defeat the Dark Lords Voldemort play a huge role in the growth of the franchise. But what makes it different from any other fictional series is the fact that not only the main characters has an impact on the fandom but also the supporting roles. So if you are a part of this magical fandom and want a tattoo to flaunt it, this list is curated for a potterhead like you.
