I know, it's 2020 and I'm still talking about Harry Potter, but it's timeless dammit! Harry Potter is a favorite of tattoo enthusiasts to this day and many of these fans not only get a tattoo inspired by the books, but they mark their Hogwarts house on their skin for life.

In the world of Harry Potter, the students of Hogwarts are sorted into four houses based on their personalities. Fans of the series have taken an extreme fondness to these houses, taking personality quizzes to determine their house and showing the world they are a diehard Hufflepuff with a tattoo homage.

We've pitted each house against each other, allowing the tattoos to speak for themselves. Take a peek at home your house shapes up and let us know which house you belong to on social media.
