Not sure if you were going to be searching for short or long dresses, but I thought that these might help!!

If you can’t find a dress that covers it, maybe you can ask her to wear a shawl or something like that to make her stand out as Maid/Matron of Honor.

Unfortunately, the tattoos come with the whole package, your future Maid/Matron of Honor. I think the only way you can get by this without looking like a bridezilla is to find a dress that covers her chest area. Maybe justifying it that she is the Maid/Matron of Honor and you want her to stand out.

Since she’s your Maid/Matron of Honor maybe just have her wear a dress with a higher neckline and tell her that you want her to wear something disctinct so she’ll stand out. That way, all your girls will still mostly be wearing the strapless dress you loved, and she’ll have a dress that covers her tattoo you don’t care for. Honestly, makeup that covers tattoos is expensive, uncomfortable, and after about an hour doesn’t look great.

I know this thread is a few years old… BUT I don’t see anything wrong with asking someone in your bridal party to cover a tattoo that you don’t care for. And I personally have more tattoos than I can count; no exaggeration. I would not be the least bit offended if I was in a wedding and they asked me to cover them up. Matter of fact, I asked a bride to be if she wanted me to cover them up when she asked me to be a bridesmaid. She said no, but I was more than willing. There’s a time and a place for everything… has nothing to do with disliking tattoos because I love my ink.

Well i am the bride and i have 6 of them. 3 in a place that can be seen and 3 in a place that only my fiance can see.  I must say that I hate the ones that are visible to death.  I have one on my neck, on my chest and my right arm.  Believe me I will be covering them three up and it is costing me $250 and I think it is well worth it.  Personally I think women look ghetto when they have tattos all over their body and I regret it everyday when I look at mines and wondered what I was thinking.  I was 19 when I got them I was not thinking that one day I’ll be in the corporate world always have to wear scars and jackets so they will not show. IJS. Everyone have their own opinion and this is mines.
