Zayn Malik now has the Force at his fingertips. The former One Direction singer received a new tattoo of a Star Wars lightsaber — and it actually lights up. 

How does it light up? Tattoo artist Jonathan “Jon Boy” Valena posted Zayn’s new ink on Instagram and referred to it as a UV tattoo, created with special ink that glows under a blacklight. “May the force be with you, [Zayn],” wrote Jon Boy, who’s based out of New York City’s West 4 Tattoo.

Zayn is sporting the Star Wars tat on his middle finger, so he may only whip it out if he’s really mad. See the photo below.
