Here’s a seriously badass thought: In the Harry Potter wizarding world, tattoos would move like pictures do. While we can’t exactly get to the level of ~magical~ tattoos, one Redditor has got as close to it as possible with an amazing blacklight tattoo that mirrors the magic of the Marauder’s Map. And it’s giving us ALL the #tattoogoals.

At first glance, the Redditor’s tattoo just looks like a little track of footprints across the forearm. However, shine blacklight over it, and a secret message is revealed: “I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.” The ultimate tattoo of Potterhead dreams.

The post has been viewed over 1.3 million times on Imgur since being posted three days ago, and we’ve gotta say — we totally love this subtle nod to Moody, Wormtail, Padfoot, and Prongs, especially in light of all the Cursed Child news we’ve been getting recently (in fact, we have a feeling this is a tattoo that the adult Harry Potter would get as a nod to his father, godfather, and godson’s father — *sob*).

Our only question was asked by Imgurian ImWorkingRightNow: “When you turn off the blacklight, do you say mischief managed?” We can only hope.
