I would ask her if you HATE it. What does it say?

You should have thought about this before you chose their dresses. It’s too late now. There is no polite way to tell someone “I really hate your tattoo, and I wanted it covered up for my wedding”. You’re only going to come off as a bridezilla.

I would choose appropriate dresses; maybe a different one for each girl. It is not fair to ask one to cover up and not the other one.

If you don’t want your Maid/Matron of Honor to have a gigantic tattoo on her collarbones, don’t ask someone to be a Maid/Matron of Honor if they do. Problem solved!

Honestly, unless the tattoo says something offensive (and I mean REALLY offensive) it would be unfair to ask her to cover it up.  I’m curious what exactly it says but at the same time, unless it is something that would be censored in the daily newspaper, my insinct says you should just let it be.

Its only one day of her life….she should cover it up. people dont realize that that these pictures last forever!! you dont want to look at your pic withyour grandkids and have you Maid/Matron of Honor standing up there with words going across her chest. i think that she should be fine, you not asking her to remove the tattoo permently, just cover it up with a little foundation or whatever the case may be

@FurysSin:  Yeah, usually I feel like you can’t tell them to cover it up but that saying is a bit contrary to the sentiment you want at your wedding. Maybe you can get a different style of dress?

Since she’s the Maid/Matron of Honor, maybe you could sneakily solve your problem by having her wear a different style of dress from the other girls, to “be more special”… or just chose a style that will cover it for all  of them. you can find nice enough dresses like that. It would be really uncomfortable and icky to have cover-up smeared all across your chest, and as a Bridesmaid or Best Man I’d probably 1. be peeved day-of because of that and 2. be offended that you asked me to do it. it’s one thing to ask a girl to wear a certain dress for you, but it’s different when you ask her to change her body.

I know a girl that has a tattoo in the same spot that says Darkness is the heart of all mankind… For a second I thought maybe it was the same person. lol. I don’t have any advice that hasn’t already been mentioned but now I really want to get a tat across my chest… hmm =D

@FurysSin: I was with PPs about not being able to ask her to cover it up…then you posted what it says. Considering that, I think she should understand why you wouldn’t want it showing on a Bridesmaid or Best Man at your wedding.
