So what is the infamous Harry Potter Scar? Where did he get it? Why is it so famous?
Well to put it simply, the night Harry gets it is the night his parents die and he begins a lifelong combat against his ultimate enemy. That same villain is the antagonist and cause of conflict throughout the entire series. He is referred to mostly as He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named or Who-Know-Who, for the first few books out of fear. Then Harry gains the courage to refer to the Dark Lord as Voldemort. Only Dumbledore, however, is willing to call Voldemort by his true name, Tom Marvolo Riddle.
So what does it look like?
How Did Mr. Potter End up With This Scar?
A Lightning Bolt scar appears on the victim of dark magic. In Harry's case, Voldemort struck him with the Killing Curse - aka, avada kedavra. The only reason Harry lived - because that curse is near impossible to block - was because his mother sacrificed herself to save Harry. Voldemort claims it as old magic only, while Dumbledore describes it as loving. Meanwhile, her sacrifice made Harry impervious to Voldemort's curse, so it rebounded. It hit himself. Voldemort only survived because of his horcruxes.
This tattoo lasts 5-7 days and is water resistant. It's 1.5" by 2".
