I would not try to wire it directly to an ignition switched source. Rather tap an ignition switched source off the fuse box using an add-a-fuse or something and run that to a relay. Then cut your +12 harness wire and wire either side to the high current side of the relay. That way the light current is only going through the harness wiring/switch and relay and not drawing off of anything under your dash. (relay draw is very low so would be much much safer to where ever you end up attaching it)

Yeah I wouldn't recommend directly wiring it into the ignition
