I love the tattoo and don’t think you should cover it up because its part of who you are and especially that it has a meaning to you and your FI 🙂

I would cover it up for a formal event.

@Asilem_Denae:  It’s not super feminine but it’s also not obnoxiously huge.  It’s part of you and your relationship so I say don’t cover it up.

Might not be a popular opinion, but I don’t like tattoos at weddings. I think it takes away from the classiness. I vote cover it.

@Pinkmoon:  + 1.

I really, really don’t mean to be rude to inked Bees. But at weddings, unless you’re offbeat to the end and rocking a very non-traditional dress, I don’t like seeing big tattoos, I don’t find them to be elegant.

@Asilem_Denae:  If you’re asking if you should cover it up…then I think, in your head, you’re not 100% secure about it showing on your wedding day.  So I think you should cover it up.

@Asilem_Denae:  I have a little bit of ink myself (ankle and hip), so I’m not against tattoos in any way, shape, or form. If it were me, I’d cover any visible tattoos up for the wedding, though.

It’s pretty big and I think its simplicity could be quite distracting.. so yeah, I’d cover it.

Then again, I am not really a big tattoo fan so take what I say with a grain of salt.

I think if you love your tattoo, you should rock it if you find a dress that you love and it shows the tattoo. After all, it’s part of who you are. 

I have tattoos, and didn’t want to cover them up because I thought it a bit silly since I actually have them. I’m not ashamed of them, and if I didn’t like them, maybe I would. 

But at the end of the day, I fell in love with a dress that happened to cover my shoulder tattoo. It had nothing to do with the ink, but it just worked out that way.

You are who you are, and that includes tattoos.  Don’t hide it.

Coming from a Bee with no tattoos who has no interest in getting one.

Edit: I wouldn’t think less of you, or think anything of it if I saw it at your wedding.

@Asilem_Denae:  I wouldn’t go out of my way to cover it up. If I found a dress that did, fine. If I found a dress with a sheer back that kind of covered it up, fine too. If I fell in love with a strapless dress, I would rock my tattoo. (I do not have any tattoos, for the record)
