Ida has had her Protego tattoo since October 2010.
What inspired you to get your tattoo?
"It's so simple, really. I figured that my first tattoo should be something that really means a lot to me, and because I've loved Harry Potter ever since the first book was released; it felt like a perfect match. You could say I'm a little bit of an HP geek."
How did you come up with the design?
"Once I decided to do an HP tattoo, I started checking some tattoo websites for ideas and inspiration, but I didn't find anything that I liked. Then I got to thinking that it would be awesome tattooing a spell, so I started to check all the spells I could think of and chose Protego, which is a protection spell."
What's the significance of your tattoo?
"Hmmm, it means a lot of different things to me. It's kind of a tribute to HP, and I also love the thought of having a protection spell next to my heart."
If you had to pick one thing about your tattoo that you liked best, what would it be?
"That I've got the HP scar on my ribs. How geeky is that?"
