I usually would never say this as I love my ink, but could you cover the ones that will stick out with tattoo cover, or could you use body paint to make the stars match better?  Just a thought.

I think that pink accents could work…especially with such bright colors. I don’t think anyone will be paying that close of attention, but if it’s not too much of a hastle, you should definitely do it!

I agree – toss in some pink! I love all my 10+ tattoos and probably won’t be covering them up when I do one day get married, so I think blending them in would be a great idea!

I think you are overthinking this. No one really is going to be looking at your tat’s.  If you really want to cover or change your bouquet then do that. But honestly I wouldn’t change a thing.

If you absolutely want to, you could cover them, but I agree with PP that you’re over-analyzing it. Think about if you were a guest at a wedding where the bride had tattoos: would you be judging her for the lack of color coordination? Your tattoos are a part of who you are, so I think you may regret covering them or changing the colors on them when you look back on your pictures in retrospect.

BTW, if throwing in pink flowers makes you feel better, go for it!

A girl in my sister’s wedding used the tattoo cover up on her tattoos and it looked worse than having the tattoos showing. Make sure the color matches your skin.

@tksjewelry:  Not wanting to hijack, but what exactly is body paint and how well does it stay on?   I am looking for a way to add color to a tattoo that is not finished (outline only) but don’t want whatever I use rubbing off on my dress.

@Klb5882:

That happened to me…I had them airbrushed for my cousin’s wedding, and before the ceremony even started it looked like my chest was peeling off. Gross!

I like the body paint.

Even if you don’t cover them, I really don’t think it is a big deal. The peopl there have probably seen them before.
