@lb007:  Have you tried Dermablend? It’s a PITA to use but it works. When I was a makeup artist I’d use it all the time when a client wanted to cover a tattoo, birthmark, and even vitaligo.

@lb007:  I think my tattoos are a part of me, therefore I would never consider covering them up. 

It really depends on how extensive they are. Do you have pics?

Now… personally I would never ever cover my tattoos, not if every single one of my 50 guests personally called me and begged me to, not in a million years. I got them for a reason, I paid for them in money and pain and time, and I’m very proud and excited to show them off on my wedding day.

But I’ve heard that for those who do really wanna cover up, Kat Von D’s tattoo concealer is serious business and I believe it comes in pale shades. Yours are very dark so I can see how it might be tricky, you may end up needing a pricier product like that or the dermablend one.

Misfits fan, eh? Nice tattoos! I have a few I am wanting covered for my big day too. I also am not ashamed of my tattoos, but very much like you, they dont fit my vision of the day. I am going to try out a brand called “Thin lizzy” (I think its only I  Aus/NZ) and also I have a 2 tier veil for the day, so hopefully the tulle covering my arms/shoulders will help obscure any potential blending issues.

Would you consider getting a.spray tan to help get an easier colour match?
