Sometimes Carly shares her tattoo work on Instagram with a little story about the subject of the teacup. With the above photo, for example, did you know that this ‘fantastic beast’ from the world of Harry Potter¬†is in fact a Niffler?

“The niffler is a British beast. Fluffy, black and long-snouted, this burrowing creature has a predilection for anything glittery. Nifflers are often kept by goblins to burrow deep into the earth for treasure. Though the niffler is gentle and even affectionate, it can be destructive to belongings and should never be kept in a house. Nifflers live in lairs up to 20ft below the surface and produce 6 to 8 young in a litter.”
