Soooo agree with this. Just leave it alone, he’s answered you. From what I can tell when you’re with someone who doesn’t really like them but they love you, they just kind of blend in to that person. That’s probably not the best way to describe it, but they just are you…your skin is just those colours.
Asking him repeatedly would I think only serve to make him more conscious of them on your wedding day if you keep stressing about it, instead of him just seeing the overall image of you, with all the bits and pieces that you are. I wish I could articulate that better :-/

I don’t have any BECAUSE my Fiance doesn’t like them. If I wasn’t with him, I’d have them. I met him when I was 19 and beginning to decide what I wanted. When I learned early on that he didn’t like them at all, I just never did it. Sometimes I want to just forget him and go get one, but in general it’s not worth it to me to put something on my body that he doesn’t like.

We don’t really talk about my tattoo…because his sister and I have the same one! We got them when we were in college. She is my best friend, so that’s awesome, but our tattoos are on our butts. LOL. So it’s not something he and I discuss. I know he doesn’t like tattoos in general, though.

My Fiance is the same, he really doesn’t like tattoo’s even though he has 2. I bought him one as a gift so he couldn’t not get it, It’s of our daughters handprint & her name which is on his calf. It has a lot of meaning behind it so he loves it.
I have 4 tattoo’s 3 which have deep meaning to them, he is okay with what i have but i want to get more, which i will…. also with meaning. His whole thing is he doesn’t like girls with tattoo’s esp sleeves… my next lot of tatts will be forming part of a sleeve :/
He still loves and supports what i want to do but, isn’t 100% happy about it

My SO wants one tattoo on his back, and I have had a tattoo on my calf since about a year before we started dating… He says that one is fine but he doesn’t like more than that. He thinks women with multiple tattoos aren’t very attractive. I’ve always wanted half-sleeves, but I can respect my SO’s wishes. I don’t NEED tattoos, I’ve just always thought they were pretty. So I don’t really mind giving up something that I think is cute while in my 20’s for a guy I’m going to be with forever 😉

you are so right. thank you. 🙂 this thread got away from me and i havent checked on it in a while.
In case anyone wants an “update”… this is what I have
And this is how i choose to go about it for my wedding day. 🙂
I covered the major ones on my upper left arm, and i just left the wrists open and free. A few people commented, but not many even noticed. It was more important to me that my Husband and everyone see me and not the tattoos, even for a second. 🙂
