Magic, mystery, and marvel.

There have been few franchises in history with the pull and allure of the Harry Potter series, whose broomsticks swept across many nations all around the world, intriguing and delighting children and adults alike.

In fact, the series’ creator, J.K. Rowling — apart from basically being the Mother Teresa of the writing world — is one of very few authors to ever reach billionaire status by being an author. (Even though she donated so much to charity that she promptly lost that status.) Trust me, that’s not an easy feat, even — or perhaps especially — in a world of myriad not-so-great books that clog up the publishing line and make it difficult for great ones like Harry Potter to slip through the cracks.

Regardless of the difficulties of the task and the twelve separate publishing rejections J.K. Rowling received, Harry Potter has become a cornerstone of the entertainment industry that continues to grow, nearly 20 years later. It has spawned plays, artwork, collectible items, recipes, lasting friendships, cosplay, entire theme parks, and much, much more, leaving thrilled admirers to even add their own tributes and theories to the amazing, life changing magical series.

Even now, the Harry Potter universe continues to spread, with sites like Pottermore breathing life and lore (as well as happiness!) into new wizarding schools. Ask anyone. We’ll bet they’ve sorted themselves on the site and can tell you both their Hogwarts and Ilvermorny houses with pride.

Now, the latest book in the series, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, has people jumping for joy all over again, eager to immerse themselves once more in the world of wizards and witchcraft and continue the saga. People have expressed their love for this magical world in many ways—some more lasting than others, as they await their long expected (and in many cases overdue) acceptance letter to Hogwarts.

So while you’re stepping into the night to pursue that mighty temptress adventure, grab your broomstick, your wand, and a nice cold pint of butter beer and check out 54 of the most magical Harry Potter tattoos you’ve ever seen.

Who knows? Maybe you'll be inspired to great — or mischievous — things.
