2 of my bridesmaids have tattoos. I honestly don’t care that they’ll be showing. Is there a good way to tell them about a cover-up product I saw just in case they wanted to? I want them to leave them if they want, so I don’t want them to feel that I want them to cover it up. It seems pretty cheap compared to the other things AOL was showing: http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P231113&om_mmc=cse-Pricegrabber&srccode=cii_5784816&cpncode=24-74540270-2
Would you be offended if I just shared the info, just in case?

Leave it be. They wear their tattoos every other day and your wedding day should be no different. You mentioned you don’t care either way but there is no reason why they shouldn’t be allowed to have them on display as long as they are not offensive. The makeups made for that type of thing all wear off onto other people and surfaces, defeating the purpose they are intended to serve. Take a look at offbeatbride.com for example to see brides, grooms, bridesmaids, etc all with tattoos on display. If a person doesn’t want it to be seen, they will get it done in a place where even the skimpiest clothing still covers it and bridesmaid dresses are pretty conservative in comparison.

I wouldn’t say a thing. I don’t think there’s anyway you’d be able to convince them that you don’t want them to cover the tat’s up. They assume its something that’s bothering you so since its not, let them decide what they want to do. My friend tried to do something similarly and it was a major FAIL.

Personally I wouldn’t offer the info unless I was asked. As someone with a visible tattoo that is completely unoffensive I’d be slightly offended if someone gave me info on covering it without reason. But with that being said I’d also probably ask the bride if she minded it being visible or if her photographer would be editing it out of pics etc

I wouldn’t say anything. Especially if you don’t care. If you casually mentioned it, I would think that you wanted them covered. If they want to cover them, or think you might want them to, I’m sure they will bring it up or figure out how to. Plus, I’ve never heard of a success story of trying to cover up tattoos!

Don’t say anything if you don’t care. They’ll assume that you’re hinting that you DO want them to cover up their tattoos. If they want to cover them, they’ll investigate on their own.

If you don’t mind then I would have them leave it be, they may ask you if you want them to cover it up, tell them that it’s up to them.
This reminds me that my sister has a secret tattoo that she has been keeping from my father… I hope she decides to fess up and show it to him soon, she’s my Maid/Matron of Honor, and I don’t my wedding to be the first time he sees it (i.e. huge blow up) so if he DOESN’T know, I will definitely suggest she use the KVD cover-up. Supposedly it’s the best out there.
May I ask where the tattoos question are?

my Maid/Matron of Honor has one on the back of her shoulder-it’s music notes, and one of my BMs has like 5? a couple on her wrists, one at the back of her neck, and I’m not really sure where else. I mean, it’s not like they’ll be in a lot of the photos. They aren’t really obvious.
