Dont do it, Let all of your tattoos be seen.  They are beautiful and are a part of what make you you. I have a half sleeve and tattoos going up my legs.  I will not make any attempt to cover them.  As a matter of fact, by MOH asked if I wanted her to cover her arms for the pictures, she has a full sleeve.  I told her no way and as her BM gift, I got her other sleeve done too!  I will look around for pictures, to post in a bit.

this was taken a few months ago, sorry the picture is horrible.  FI and I were at a friends wedding 2 days after i had surgery.  I looked and felt like crap!  I have had more work done since then on the tattoo, but no pictures.

I have two, one won’t be seen but the other is on my right shoulder blade area. I’m wearing a strapless, and with how far to the right it is, my veil probably won’t cover any of it.  I’m okay with that. 🙂

One of my bridesmaids has her Rotweilier dog who passed away from cancer on her left arm. I’m not asking her to cover it up. She’s my good friend, and I knew she had tattoos before I asked her to be a bridesmaid!

I have tats, and 3 of my 4 BM’s have them too, and I didn’t ask them to cover them up. Its a part of us, and i didn’t care what anyone said. And you know what? no one said anything about them

I agree. I wouldn’t cover them. But if you’re concerned about his family, maybe just for the ceremony wear a veil to obscure them. That’s what I’d do. And then take the veil off for the reception or wear a birdcage or something and let everyone see them 🙂 They’re beautiful. I wouln’t worry about the ones on your hands, either. The one on your back will be seen by everyone during the ceremony because for some part your back will be to them.

hey lady! if you don’t want to cover them, don’t! if you are considering it, then maybe you should look into your options. there is some great makeup that conceals the tattoos well…airbrush makeup, kat von d’s line, cover blend, etc.

as a tattooed bride myself, i’m going to show mine off like it’s my job. my tattoos are a part of me and never going anywhere…and i’ve spent a lot of time and money creating and drawing them and they mean a lot to me. enough that i really don’t care what anyone says. if i had money to finish my sleeve by then, i would!

as for my facial piercings, i’ll remove them just for the day because i’ll have a lot of accessories and i don’t need the competition. after the wedding ceremony, and before the reception, they’ll be going right back in. my FI has plugs and facial piercings, and he’s not removing his. this is who we are and even though we’ve gotten a lot of flack for it, i want my photos to reflect us. 🙂
