<span style=”font-size: 7.5pt; font-family: ‘Verdana’,’sans-serif'”>I’m debating covering mine. It’s between my shoulder blades, right in the middle. I’m wearing a birdcage veil and a strapless dress so it will definitely be shown.

I have a small tattoo on my foot. I won’t be covering it because I’m proud of its significance and I love it!

I have an armband on my left bicep and another tattoo on my right shoulder blade. Both are native designs from the island where I grew up, and both will be visible on my wedding day. Mr.Rain loves them both and is looking forward to "showing them off".

I guess i am the only one who deeply regrets my tattoo. I have one on my hipbone that I got on my 18th birthday with 2 best friends. We arent friends anymore but I wouldn’t get rid of it for anything. It was my first move as an adult! however, on my 19th birthday I got one across my lower back and I now wish I wouldn’t have. Luckily for me, both will be covered.

I have a tattoo (peach blossoms) but it’s on my lower back so it won’t be showing.  🙁  However I’m pretty sure Doctorgirl knows what’s up and I now have a photo to the must-take list.  Yay!

I thought about this one for a long time. My entire family and my fiances family know that I have tattoos. I had a Bolero made for me in case it gets chilly, but it is so darn cute, I decided to wear it for the entire wedding. It just happens to cover up my back tattoo, so it made the decision for me. So you could wear a Bolero or Jacket if you want to cover up back tats.

This is the one that is visible and no I am not covering it. I know a lot of people will not agree with what we did, but its my wedding day and what better day for them to find out than a day they can’t tell us anything! It is on my left shoulder/back.

Oh, and I LOVE The Last Unicorn!

I have a few… two I regret (they’re not bad, they just have no meaning), and one that I LOVE. Luckily the one that I love is the only one that shows.

I have one on my spine in my upper-middle back. It will be showing, and I think my dress frames it very nicely.


My parents, grandparents, siblings, and obviously my fiance know about it, as do some other family members I’m facebook friends with, but it will otherwise be a surprise to my rather conservative family. The comments should be.. fun, but that’s alright. I’m not ashamed of my tattoo. It’s very meaningful to me, I personally designed it, and I think it’s beautiful.

I have two tattoos and will not be covering either one.  I have a childhood cancer ribbon with the word courage through it (which I got as a symbol for my brother who has a brain tumor) that is on my left ankle and will be hidden during the wedding due to my dress.  Though I do really want the photographer to catch some shots with my tattoo.  Also, I have a grouping of colored starts on my back (pink, yellow and blue) that matches a tattoo one of my BM’s has that will be visible in my dress.  That will be a surprise for my family and friends (well, most of them) but it does go well with my dress.

I have seven tattoos. Violets behind each ear, the Celtic Spiral of Life on my neck, a poppy on my wrist, a star on my ankle, a heart on my hip, and a memorial tattoo for my son on my upper arm. Obviously, some of them are going to be visible. The only one that I’m fretting over is the tattoo on my arm. Most everyone knows the signifigance of it, but for the ceremony at the church I might try to do something to cover it up. Before we started officially dating, some of his friends and family called me "that tattoo girl" (which is ludicrous), but thay’re decidedly more conservative than my camp. And his mom asked him nervously if my dress was going to have sleeves or not, so I’m not sure how big of a deal it’s going to be. And actually my original plan was to have it redone so it was more lush and vibrant, and maybe the meaning a little more obscure, since still six years later, people still ask about it.

So, yeah. I am undecided…

I don’t have one but the Fiance and his whole family each have one that are kinda part of the same series! The Fiance & his 2 brothers each have a diff variation of the 3 of hearts. His dad has a king of hearts and the mom a queen of hearts. It’s a play on words on their last name so I def want the photographer to get a pic of all of them together. =D Especially one of the 3 bros together when they’re getting ready.

Not covering! On the contrary, I’m thinking of enhancing it with rhinestones!
