My tattoo on my left wrist. “Expecto Patronum,” a spell from Harry Potter. This is a light spell that protects against the darkness and the “dementors,” which are a symbol of the author’s struggle with depression herself. I got it near my self harm scars to remind myself that there is always light in the dark.
Done by Charlie at Enemy Tattoo in Everett, Washington.
