The Netflix star took to Instagram to show off his tat in honor of his show Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events getting renewed for a second season.

“We got picked up for Season 2 of A Series of Unfortunate Events. I got this to celebrate. #firsttattoo #anklebone #oof#olaf #scampstamp @andersonluna@unfortunatetv @netflix,” he captioned the pic.

The body art is located on Harris’ ankle and features the mystical eye that is the symbol of his evil character Count Olaf.

It’s quite a process for Harris to transform into the villainous Count Olaf. He dished about the experience to ET in January.

"It takes about three hours to get all the stuff on, and then all day long you have to make sure it's not coming off," Harris explained. "So all day long someone's just poking at your face. All day--literally, nine hours of someone between takes just [fixing your makeup.]"
