well I searched google n came up with something like this, its simple and classy and will cover your tattoos. I really doubt people will be all focused on your tattoos anyways but you could always wear a cover over your sholders or wear your hair down, if its long enough. Honestly I love tattoos but if you are happy not showing them then thats what you should fo =D

@FitBee:  You could always buy a lace-back dress like those above and get your alterations seamstress to line it with a fabric matching your skin tone.  Win-win- you don’t have to go the custom route, but your tattoos are covered.

@FitBee:  srry this got cut off!    I know its hard to not listen to other peoples comments (im a recovered anerexic) but if you are happy you should try to ignore everyone elses comments. You need to be confident on your day in your dress, go with your gut!

@FitBee:  not a problem, Its not that expensif to get them custom made. If you take fabric and a pattern to a seemstress im sure they can do it for a decent price good luck!

 I’m sorry to hear about your situation… have you ever thought about getting the tattoos airbrushed?  I have heard other brides do that for tattoos they didn’t want to show in their dresses. It’s pretty amazing what a little airbrush can do!

((Hugs)) I’m sorry you’re having a rough night and are having to worry about your mom being negative with your dress. May I ask if you would be ok with showing the tattoos? I don’t think it would be as scandalous as your mom seems to suggest, and if you’d be ok with showing them off then that would open up your choices. Just a thought.

@FitBee:  I think showing one wing would be kinda cool actually??
