Netflix's adaptation of Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events is officially returning for Season 2, and what better way to celebrate than with some fresh ink? Neil Patrick Harris, who plays the creepy Count Olaf, got his first tattoo in honor of the show:

"We got picked up for Season 2 of A Series of Unfortunate Events. I got this to celebrate," the actor captioned the photo of his "scamp stamp." The fitting tattoo is the Volunteer Fire Department (V.F.D.) insignia, a secret society in the series.

Yesterday, Netflix amped the Season 2 anticipation by dropping a mysterious teaser and new website that channeled the dark vibes of the classic novels. The first season premiered in January and covered the first four (of 13) books. Author Daniel Handler previously said he and the team "hope to get the go-ahead to do Season 3, which...given how quickly young actors age and change, we’re trying to film everything as quickly as possible."
