Zayn Malik just showed off his inner fanboy with his newest piece of ink — a glow-in-the-dark ‘Star Wars’ lightsaber tattoo! Aw, Zayn, we can’t get over just how adorably geeky this body art is. Check it out here!
The 23-year-old singer joined the Rebel Alliance on July 14 when he got inked by tattoo artist to the stars, Jon Boy. He chose the inside of his middle finger as the location for the Star Wars-themed ink that glows electric blue — just like a real lightsaber! — under UV light.
The NYC-based artist shared a side-by-side image of the “Cruel” singer’s finger on Instagram, one with the light on and one with it off. Jon Boy OF COURSE captioned the post with the best Star Wars shout out possible, “May the force be with you @zayn #uvink #starwars #jonboytattoo.” Zayn already has a ton of great tattoos going up and down his arms and on his neck, but we think this one is is by the far the best. After all, how can you compete with the Force?

We have to wonder if Zayn chose the classic blue lightsaber — the color of Luke Skywalker’s first weapon in the original Star Wars trilogy — to be his next tat because of the Star Wars Celebration in London on July 15. Or maybe he just couldn’t wait till December, when Rogue One: A Star Wars Story comes out, to show his love for the saga!
Zayn’s tattoo artist also shared a pic of the former One Direction-er and his crew that day — including stylist Luka Sabbat and Anwar Hadid, 17, the brother of Zayn’s girlfriend, Gigi Hadid, 21. Other members of Jon Boy’s celebrity clientele include Kendall Jenner, 20, Chloë Grace Moretz, 19, and Hailey Baldwin, 19.
