That's great and all, but I'm left confused;

When does Hermione get a scar reading 'Mudblood' on her arm?

    @kaine No, but the question in which it is asked is linked to in my question, in quite literally the first two words. – Dr R Dizzle Sep 15 '15 at 12:57

    @kaine Ron's scars are from the brains which wrapped around him in the Department of Mysteries. "Thoughts scar deeper than anything else" – Brindha Sep 16 '15 at 18:06

She gets the scar from Bellatrix Lestrange in book 7 while she is captive at house Malfoy.

In the movie this occurs in the following scene:

According to Harry Potter Wikia:

Hermione has Mudblood written on her arm, a cut on her neck and many bites, all of them made by Bellatrix Lestrange, in 1998, at the Malfoy Manor

As Checked in the book and also as commented by Valorum:

Why shouldn’t I?” said Hermione. “Mudblood, and proud of it! I’ve got no higher position under this new order than you have, Griphook! It was me they chose to torture, back at the Malfoys!” As she spoke, she pulled aside the neck of the dressing gown to reveal the thin cut Bellatrix had made, scarlet against her throat.

    If I remember rightly though the "Mudblood" scar is purely an invention of the movie, the book doesn't mention it. – DavidS Sep 15 '15 at 8:27

    @DavidS, you're probably right. The book only mentions she gets tortured and untill this day bears the scars. – Schuere Sep 15 '15 at 8:44

    The sole mention of hermione's wounds are "“Why shouldn’t I?” said Hermione. “Mudblood, and proud of it! I’ve got no higher position under this new order than you have, Griphook! It was me they chose to torture, back at the Malfoys!” As she spoke, she pulled aside the neck of the dressing gown to reveal the thin cut Bellatrix had made, scarlet against her throat." – Valorum Sep 15 '15 at 8:49

The book didn't mention the carving. In the movie, Bellatrix gives her that scar with the knife that killed Dobby.

Hermione never gets the word 'Mudblood' carved into her, but she does receive a cut on her throat from Bellatrix's knife. Trust me, I read thoroughly.

    Some citations would help, so other people can look it up for themselves, no matter how much they trust you. – Molag Bal Jun 20 '16 at 2:00

Hermione only gets the Mudblood scar in the movie. The only mention of a scar in the book is the cut on her neck that she sustains after Bellatrix threatens to slit her throat.

Hermione, Harry, and Ron steal a sword or something from Bellatrix. Bellatrix gets suspicious, asks Hermione who lied and Bellatrix didn't believe her so she carved "Mudblood" on Hermione's arm.

Some old woman dressed in a wig, I believe her name was Bellatrix carved "Mudblood" on Hermione's left arm and didn't carve anything on her right.
