Plenty of people choose to get tattoos that are Chinese symbols, which inevitably has people asking them what their tat means. Well one funny guy named Cody got his very unique ink with that in mind. 

Cody posted his body art on Reddit and revealed that it translates to "I don't know. I don't speak Chinese." This way, when asked about what his tattoo means, he can answer, "I don't know. I don't speak Chinese." 

He explained his reasoning to LadBible saying,

"I'd always liked the way Chinese symbols look, but hate that everyone always gets generic meanings tattooed like 'love', 'hope', 'courage' and stuff like that which gets old. I also knew I'd constantly have a lot of people asking me what my tattoo said if I decided to get Chinese symbols on me and thought of this as a clever way to mess with almost everyone I meet and give us both a good laugh."

Cody has no regrets about his ink, and now even goes by The Guy With The Funny Tattoo. In fact, while he got the tat three years ago when he was 19, he just put some color behind it. 

Cody spoke about his art saying, "I can even picture myself as a grandfather being asked what my tattoo says and telling my grandchildren, "I don't know, I don't speak Chinese. And never explaining it to them as they get older."

Here's hoping the joke never gets old.
