Zayn Malik, formerly of hit boy band One Direction, has several tattoos. He has a tattoo of a tiger and a tattoo of a skull in a top hat and presumably a few more cliché tattoos of that variety. However, the most recent tattoo added to his collection is a pretty interesting one, especially if you are a fan of arguably the biggest movie franchise in the history of the world. Zayn has gotten a tattoo of a lightsaber on his middle finger, and on top of that it glows in the dark.
Zayn debuted the new ink on the Instagram for Jon Boy, the tattoo artist who is responsible for the tattoo. We see two pictures, one of the tattoo under normal lighting, when it’s just the outline of a lightsaber, and one under UV lighting, where the lightsaber suddenly glows blue.
It’s a representation of the lightsaber that Luke Skywalker used in the films, no purple Mace Windu or Darth Maul double-sided red lightsabers here, and when it glows it really does look a lot like a lightsaber. It’s pretty impressive. Of course, it’s also on his middle finger, albeit on the inside, so it’s kind of hard for him to show it off without flipping people off. Oh well. Once they see he has a glowing lightsaber on his finger, they will probably be cool with it.
