Check Out Zayn Malik's New Glow-in-the-Dark 'Star Wars' Tattoo


Zayn showed a fondness for neon in his futuristic video for "Like I Would," but the singer brought that to another level this weekend when he added a glow-in-the-dark tattoo to his collection.

Jon Boy, a New York-based tattoo artist who's inked celebrities such as Kendall Jenner and Chloë Grace Moretz, is the man behind Zayn's new lightsaber, which glows bright blue—just like the one belonging to Luke Skywalker and, in The Force Awakens, Kylo Ren—when held up under a black light.

It's subtle, a ideal fit for his finger, and crazy cool given the weird science behind its brightness in the perfect setting. Who knows? If Zayn decides to reprise his cover art for his next solo album, whenever that may be, maybe the lightsaber will grace the artwork, too. 

Check out Jon Boy's work here, and listen to this episode of Pop Chat below, where Zayn's latest collaborators, Snakehips, get a special spotlight.
