An ingenious reveller has gained free access to his favourite nightclub for life after getting the entry stamp tattooed on his hand to try to avoid paying to get in. And it worked - the club has now said he can come in for free whenever he wants.
OK, perhaps the word itself isn't ingenious, but it certainly shows a degree of commitment that most people would be unwilling to match.
The guy in question is 27-year-old Adam Marsh and he decided to get the ill-advised ink while he was on a LADs' holiday in Magaluf this August.
The tattoo is an homage to his favourite club in his home town of Barnsley, South Yorkshire.
Now, we've all got a favourite bar, but very few of us are willing to indelibly mark that love onto our skin, much less on somewhere as visible as the back of a hand.
But that's exactly what Adam went and did, and now his hand will forever be branded with 'Che Bar' on the back of it.
The design cost him £35. Entry into Che Bar costs about £4. That means that after 9 visits he'll be in credit.
Despite the bar saying he can now get free entry whenever he likes, Adam does actually regret his decision and says that he's going to have it covered up at the next possible opportunity. Until then, at least, he can party in Che Bar for the foreseeable future.
Adam, who works as a baker, said: "I can't even remember getting it done, but I am known for being the joker of the group so I'm sure I was up for it at the time.
"When I woke up and saw it I just screamed at myself.
"I did get in for free though, as soon as we got home we went out and tried it.
"I actually worked at the bar for two years and used to get in for free, so now I feel like a VIP again."
He continued: "I'm definitely getting rid of it soon enough. I think I've picked what I want to cover it with already and I'm really going to try not get any daft tattoos again.
"People actually expect me to go on holiday and get some ridiculous tattoo now - I've made it my thing, worryingly."
As that last sentence suggests, this isn't Adam's first offence. During the World Cup, he also had 'it's coming home' tattooed on himself. Oh, and that's just two examples - he's got seven tattoos.
Something tells me this won't be the last one.
