These are three of my favorite quotes from Harry Potter that make up the Deathly Hallows symbol. I grew up with Harry Potter and it is such a big part of my life. The tattoo is on my lower back and is covering up my scar from back surgery.
My dream tat!
These are not the quotes I would choose, and I am not a fan of deathly hallows symbol tattoos.
But regardless of both of those things? This is my favorite HP tattoo I have ever seen.
I’m both a graphic designer and a feminist—I wanted my first tattoo to be political, but not some cliche, recognizable symbol. I first got the idea for the pomegranate while doing research on the history of birth control and abortion.In ancient times, pomegranates were used by women as a semi-effective birth control (it contains many hormones similar to The Pill) along with other herbs and plants. The fruit Eve ate? Until medieval times, it was a pomegranate. The pomegranate was in Greek myths, too. And all of this knowledge is older than agriculture! To me, this history is “key” to understanding how deeply rooted birth control (including abortion) is in women’s biology and history.Also, see if you can spot the hidden uterus and ovaries! (My tattoo is also like a sweet i-spy game.)

Love this, super into the pomegranate as symbol.
Was thinking pomegranate for my I-am-a-Jew tattoo but it’s not as obvious as some others. I do lovvvvvveee this, though, and the idea of it being a feminist thing and hmmmmm… yay ink
This is my first tattoo. I designed it after two days of no sleep. I designed it after my love of art, writing, and psychology, because to me it looks like an ink blot test, a paint splatter, and a drop of ink.
Need to start a “Gorgeous tattoos” tag.
