‘Harry Potter’ fanatics, be they young or old, will never let go of The Boy Who Lived and his trusty pals (and even his foes). We’ve already told you about fans who’ve built cakes dedicated to their favourite books, jumped out of planes to play quidditch, threw a full on Potter-themed wedding(!) and even paid $400,000 for the chair J.K. Rowling sat on when she wrote the books. With HP once again in the news due to the premiere of Harry Potter And The Cursed Child play, we knew some fan was about to take their obsession to the next level.
Meet the person who thought it was a good idea to tattoo this on their arm:
As the caption says, in regular light all you see are foot steps (just as their appear on Harry’s magical Marauders map). But when placed under black light, the map’s famous words “magically” appear: “I solemnly swear that I am up to no good” on the arm.
We’ll be the first to admit that it’s super cool and we were tempted to run out and find a tattoo shop so we could copy the exact idea. However, upon further research it looks like getting a tattoo that magically appears, might itself be up to no good. According to Mic, the ink used to pen the ultra violet (UV) tattoo is made out of phosphorus “a dangerous element that can be incredibly toxic.”
Um, yeah. Let’s put a pin on going out to get this tattoo and just, you know, admire it from afar.
