Skin Deep: Harry Potter Tattoo Art  
Elise Siegmann  

 Harry Potter Tattoo Art is far more prevalent than most people suspect, and covers every aspect of both books and film, from House Shields to Spells, Dark Marks and Quidditch.  The round table would consist of a display of tattoos (both live and photographic), so anyone wishing to be involved could show of their art. Discussion topics would include Most Popular elements within the art (symbols used regularly), Best Elements (those that the participants like to see tattooed the most), and plenty of discussion for anyone interested in getting a Harry Potter related tattoo (including suggestions of design, body placement, colouring aspects, and even artists). This part of the discussion would also be useful for anyone interested in getting a tattoo at all, as we will undoubtedly cover our experiences of getting the ink. This round table will rely on the participation of everyone, asking questions and allowing us all to interact. This round table would be a fun and interesting look into the wide range of Harry Potter tattoos people from all over the world have hidden away, and display some of the fantastic art work that exists, as well as a Q&A for those aspiring to get tattoos in the future.

I am 21 years old and live in Canberra, Australia. I got my first Harry Potter related tattoo on Nov. 12 2006, and haven't looked back. I currently have two completed HP tattoos, and a third one being worked on at the moment, which will be completed just in time for Infinitus. I have been madly in love with Harry Potter since picking up the first book at the age of 12, and can only smile when people look at my ink and ask whether I'll still be so crazy about Harry Potter when I'm 80. Tattoos are my favourite way to show my love of the series, as it takes great commitment (not to mention a dose of pain) to permanently add something to your body.  I love tattoos in general, and love to share my love of ink with other people.
