Brace yourselves, everyone...because POTTERMANIA IS BACK AND IN FULL FORCE!!!!
Tonight at midnight, the first installment of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows hits theaters in what is argued to be one of the most anticipated films of the year. If you were lucky enough to snatch one of those elusive midnight showing tickets, be prepared to surround yourself by the hardcore folk decked out in Hogwarts uniforms with wand in hand. [As a mere muggle, I'll have to wait until after Turkey Day to experience the fanfare of this flick.]
One thing is for sure...Potter fans are just as passionate as the Twi-hard fanbase
, though there is an obscene amount of crossover, no doubt. However I'd argue that the Potter fans are much larger in scale as men, women, boys and girls have been closely following Harry's journey through Hogwarts as he fulfills his destiny to overpower He Who Shall Not Be Named for the past decade.
And to prove their devotion to "the boy who lived" many fans have covered their bodies in fan-obsessed ink. Some tattoos are clearly more subdued and not overtly Pottertastic, but others leave me scratching my head wondering if they'll still be jazzed about having an homage to Dumbledore across their back when they're 70 years old and sagging.
So to help get your geek on for this weekend's big release...here's a look at some fantastic, absurd, ridiculous and awesome Harry Potter tattoos...
