HP Golden Snitch Tattoo by ZeldaH0ttie HP Golden Snitch Tattoo by ZeldaH0ttie
My first tattoo.

Me: "i want a golden snitch behind my ear"

Tattooist: "A what?"


lol, i still can't get over the fact that he didn't know what it was. I showed him a picture of the actual one used in the movie and he drew this up for me. I love it.

My tattoo artist didn't know what a Golden Snitch was, either. XD Luckily, he didn't have to do any research, since I had an artist friend draw up exactly what I wanted and gave the tattooist the finished line art. He just had to trace it onto the transfer paper and get to work.

I really love this! A very long time ago I had an idea for the EXACT same tattoo but I couldn't quite figure out how I would make the wings in order for it to fit behind my ear. May I have your permission to some day to copy you?

;O I was going to do that! I might get a dark mark instead. Or maybe the hallows symbol? I want something small behind my ear...

About how much did that run you? Your general location might help out too...(I'm KY/WV)

Yeah, 'cause when I do talk harry potter to anyone they're usually confused or can only relate via the movies. So, yeah, I probably should have expected that going in.

That is one of the coolest tattoos I've ever seen! How much does bhind the ear hurt? I can't imagine it would be pleasant compared to the arm or back or something...

:iconzeldah0ttie:
ZeldaH0ttie Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2010
Actually, It only hurt when the artist was working on the detailing because he was going back over raw skin. Just imagine scratching yourself lightly with a pin or needle. That's what it feels like. A vibrating needle.

Really? Yeah, my mum has tattoos on her back but said they merely tickled...I just imagined behind the ear would be rather painful, but I suppose not! *shrugs*

So has anyone ever punched you in the head trying to grab for it? Because you know the match isn't over until the snitch has been caught. Oh my, was that a metaphor in that last sentence?

Anyways, beautiful tattoo! Good choice. : )

hah, no. My brother asked me (a few days after i had gotten it done) when I was going to get Harry around my neck chasing after the snitch, though. Sounds good, but I think I'll leave it just as it is. Thanks for stopping by.

awesome... maybe you should make the face more of the focal point seeing as that is the most obvious thing that differentiates the two... plus the fact that it won't be holing a scythe, lol. good luck!

It was about $60 I believe. It didn't hurt except maybe the detailing. I was also bleeding a lot when i was done... but that sort of thing differs person to person.
