I have a tattoo across my right forarm and my mom wants me to cover it but I really like it. It’s a casual renewal thing we are doing. Should I cover it with tattoo make up or leave it? Also I have my lip peirced and I was thinking of putting in a cute little blue stone stud in but she also wants me to let it close, but then i’ll have a scar that looks like a hole. Help!
It has been fixed since this pic was taken so it says sisTers now. It was like this for about a year though *eekk*

Leave it, a tattoo is a part of you.

Do whatever you want. Who cares what she thinks.

Are you talking about covering it for your wedding?
I think the tattoo is fine, it’s absolutely not offensive, it’s pretty script and it’s a nice message (as well as being a part of you etc) 🙂

It sounds like the tattoo is an important part of who you are. So, I’d say show it off. 🙂

I like the idea of the stud for your lip. Don’t cover your tattoo!! You got it for a reason! I’ve got too many tattoos to even think about covering them, unless I was in a neck to wrist dress, lol, show your stuff!

I have a wrist tattoo and I have no intention of covering it. Most of my bridesmaids also have numerous tattoos, include my SIL that has a sleeve. They are a part of the person, and if you can’t be yourself on your wedding day, then when can you be yourself?

Thanks ladies I chated with my mom more about it and told her I wasn’t going to get rid of the piercing. I’m so not covering my tat either, your all right it is a part of me. She was concerned with the family members that didn’t know about it I guess *cough* Conservative Grandma*cough* haha I think my grandma will get over it eventually nothing I can do about it now. 🙂

Just a head ups – if you are covering it up, make sure you try different products…
I was in my cousins wedding a few years ago and decided to get my chest piece covered for it – they are much more traditional than me…well it was a disaster!! I got up super early and went to a place that specializes in tattoo cover-ups/airbrushig.
It looked like crap! By the time the ceremony started it was coming off and turnign green. It looked like my skin was peeling off. I ended up washing it off half way through the reception.

HAHA my fmil wants me to cover my tattoos too. Instead, I am getting a dress specifically to show them off. It’s our own weddings, right? :o)

I think leave them both. They are apart of you, why change it for one day?!

My mom also asked me if I was planning on covering up my tattoos that are visible (one on my right shoulder and left shoulder blade). I told her that if I didn’t want them visible, I wouldn’t have them in the first place. My sister-in-law is taking my pictures for me (and is a graphic artist, so she’ll be editing them as well). She said that she can photoshop them out for my mother’s pictures. That works for me.

I wouldn’t cover it up… and i would do the blue stud thingy for your lip piercing. Your mom is just being a typical mom. 🙂 But in the end it is up to you! (And l should stress that to every bee on this forum who is looking for advice!)
