15 Shattering Severus Snape Tattoos In Memory Of Alan Rickman

Xavier in Tattoo Ideas

Slytherins, Gryffindors, Hufflepuffs, and Ravenclaws, raise your wands together for Alan Rickman, who brilliantly portrayed Severus Snape.

“After all this time?” “Always.”
“After all this time?” “Always.”

Love him or hate him, Severus Snape was a significant character in the Harry Potter series. And the actor who played him, Alan Rickman brought him to life and gave us an excellent portrayal of Snape from the books whom we may have loved, despised, or both. The character Severus Snape himself taught us to question how we view others, and of course, the concept of unconditional true love—no matter how unrequited. We have the late Alan Rickman to thank for giving us a performance to remember—all eight movies of it. Rest easy, Professor.
