I had this done by Matt at Metamorphosis in Broad Ripple, IN. It is my first (and most likely last) tattoo, and it took about 30 minutes. I had four of my best friends go with me in support.
Why Riddikulus!? Riddikulus! is the spell from Harry Potter used to transform your worst fears into something humorous. It is to remind me that behind every challenge, there is a solution, and behind the darkness, you can find light. You just have to look for it.
It also reminds me of my childhood growing up with Harry Potter, and all of the wonderful people I have met in my journey. Even though the series is over, that just means the next chapter of life has begun. And what better way to meet the next chapter than with a laugh?
