I would just own it. It’s your body and you’re an adult. They should be happy you’re going to bother covering it for the wedding.

Why do you regret it? What is the tattoo?

You can get coverup makeup for it? Not a lot of other choices, really, if they are going to be seeing you dressing.

Makeup & a veil should camouflage it pretty well. They make a special thicker/heavy coverage for tattoos & scars.

jolieqe:  I too would just own the fact that you made a mistake and got a tatoo. Everyone makes mistakes and down to earth people will realize this.

Don’t have a big entourage when you go shopping. 

Laser removal 

Makeup, but that might rub off on the dresses.

There’s a company that makes tattoo stickers that are cheaper/easier to apply than makeup (I think it’s called tat jacket) but I agree with PP about just showing it.

Here’s another airbrush pic. She even steciled in freckles to make my back look natural.

I would just try on dresses to cover it. No one’s going to be inside the dressing room with you. Do NOT wear coverup makeup for trying on dresses, you will stain them.

i agree with the PP, do not put in make up when trying on dresses. IF you need makeup nars and mac are great concealers.

jolieqe:  I use 2 different airbrush makeup artist in Southern California. One uses Mac and the other Dinair. I’m actually trying a new Dinair xtreme coverage for tattoos this afternoon. It’s supposed to last 48hrs. If it holds up, I may invest in a machine and start doing it myself. I’ll update you with results…

With that being said, I don’t recommend having it on while trying on dresses (unless you are doing all strapless and stepping into the dresses instead of pulling them over your head). While it does hold up nicely, it will not hold up against heavy friction. Due to my tattoo size/color, it normally costs me between $150-200 each time. Most bridal makeup artist will charge $25-50 to cover tattoos.

I did not have my family with me while trying on dresses and I will be rocking a strapless on my wedding day. Maybe only try on dresses that will cover your tattoos and if you don’t have them follow you into the dressing room, I don’t think they will notice. I’ve seen a few sexy yet elegant long sleeve dress with low cut v-style backs.
