I wish people would be able to see mine, but it’s on my lower back.  I’m going to make sure the photographer gets a pic as I’m putting on the dress!

Hey – I have two tattoos. The one on my back will be covered because of my dress, but I am not covering the one on my wrist ๐Ÿ™‚

The one on my back is an angel – in memory of a good friend of mine, who passed away at the young age of 15.
And the one on my wrist is a dancer to honour my passion ๐Ÿ™‚

I have a big one on my shoulder that will be showing.  I wanted to cover it (Grandma’s gonna have a heart attack) but my dress has netting over my entire back, and I just KNEW I’d end up with makeup smeared all over it if I tried that.  I just keep reminding myself that if that’s what people want to talk about on my wedding day, it just makes them look petty.  And hey, at least it matches my color scheme….

I have a small tattoo on my ankle which I hadn’t even thought about covering. Granted, it won’t really show anyway since I have a long dress, but it has become such a art of me that I hardly notice it let alone ever think about covering it. I want to have some fun shoe shots from the wedding, so it will probably show then, and I’m excited about that!

Oh, and it’s "ahavah" (In Hebrew), which means "love", but more specifically is an action verb and seems, to me, to imply a much stronger, more unconditional, and more accurate definition of love than our English word does.

My lower back tattoo will not show (unless I go with a *really* low-cut back!), but if I had a visible tattoo, I definitely wouldn’t cover it. I made the choice to make it part of me, and I’m not hiding it for a wedding, even my own!

Mine will be hiding, no way to be shown without being a totally unclassy person.  It is right between my hipbones on my abdomen and goes all the way across.  I love it, I have had it 4 years and my family has no idea.  Just becuse they are old fashioned and I dont want the drama of it.  I want another but will wait until after the wedding for that one.

I have a huge tattoo on my shoulder cap of a lilly and a pair of shears (i’m a hairdresser) on my right forearm. Theres no way i’m covering them! I also have some hearts on the back of my neck that will most likely be seen unless i wear my hair down, which probably isn’t happening because i’m getting married on the beach!  I have a couple of other tattoos as well, but none will be able to be seen. Its my wedding, and its about me. If i didn’t want people to see them, I wouldn’t have gotten them.

I have 2, one on my lower back and one on the top of my right foot. Doctorgirl, I love your idea of having the photog snap a pic of it while putting on your dress. I’ll have to mention that to mine as well. As for the one on my foot, I want to have one of those cool "shoe shots" so it will be seen in pics as well. Sometimes I wish I had a huge one somewhere visible just to piss off my dad. Oh well, in my next life ๐Ÿ™‚

I have three: one on my lower back, one on my right hip (both of with will be covered by my dress) and then one that covers the top of my left foot. I’m actually having trouble finding shoes that don’t cover the one on my foot, because I love that one and love showing it off!

I have one on my right wrist that I definitely wont be covering up. My mom asked if I’d be buying tattoo coverup but I told her its a part of me, there’s no need to hide it.

I have three tattoos and they will be covered by my dress. At least, I’m pretty sure they will. My newest tattoo I got a week ago yesterday and it goes up to just below my bra line. We’ll see if my dress covers it up, but if not that’s fine because it kind of goes with my dress. Um, I’ll post a picture of it so you kind of know what I’m talking about.

I currently have four, and by the time we get married I’ll have two or three more.  A few will be visible in a dress, and I don’t intend to cover them.

I have an ankh on my right upper thigh (covered by dress, obviously), song lyrics down the side of my left leg (covered as well), a treble clef on my left shoulder (visible) and one on my right forearm that requires a lot of explanation to tell you what it is.  But if you just want to see it, see here.

Fiance and I plan on getting small matching tattoos at some point, and mine will be on the back of my neck (visible).  I also plan to get a couple on my back within the next year and would love to have them visible at my wedding because they represent a huge personal victory in my life.

I’ve got a good sized star on my upper back and I didn’t cover it!  I can’t wait to get back my pro photos – they took a few specifically to make sure it showed!
