This 'Harry Potter' Marauders Map Tattoo Is Truly Magical

Now you see it, now you don't.

We've seen a lot of 'Harry Potter' tattoos in our day, but this might be the one to rule them all (wait, wrong film).

A photo of a Marauders Map-inspired inking has gone viral on Imgur for a pretty cool reason.

In normal lighting, the skin looks bare, but when held under a black light the tattoo magically begins to glow thanks to the UV ink.

If you have no idea what the Marauders Map reference means, it's a magical document that reveals all of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

The map is disguised as a blank piece of parchment and the only way to reveal it is by tapping it with a wand and reciting "I solemnly swear that I am up to no good."

Commenters on the photo have been quick to praise the tattoo, but also to warn others about the potential dangers UV tattoos. Not enough research has been done into their safety their long term effects, so it's probably best not to try this one at home.
