There’s plenty of cover-up makeup options if you’re light skinned I’d suggest Kat Von D’s line of cover-up from Sephora it’s a little pricey but it does the job. Otherwise you could try mixing your own foundation with some clown makeup since it’s thicker it should cover up your ink a little better or else there’s also Dermablend, which is another conceler that comes in different shades. Hope this helps a little!

I have a good sized tattoo on my forearm.  I prefer to have it covered up for my wedding – I just don’t think it goes with the dress or the formality of the whole event.  I am having a makeup trial next month, and having her try airbrushing it.

You might want to wait like 5 mins after you apply the concealer then dab a little bit of powder on the makeup just to set it and wait a couple more mins before getting dressed. After that it should last for a while-the Dermablend is supposed to last 16 hrs. The key with the make-up is patience, give your skin a chance to absorb the makeup then it shouldn’t rub off. You can even wipe off any excess before you get dressed, but double check the instructions that come with whatever you choose!

I have a tattoo of a butterfly on my left shoulder blade, in memory of my mother. One of my requirements for a dress was that the entire tattoo be visible. So, no covering here!

@bamm the MUA I chose is doing my trial for $70 + $20 for the tattoo coverup, and on the day of the cost of the tattoo coverup will be an additional $75.  My tattoo is about 5 inches long and wide; it sounds like yours is alot smaller.

I am going to cover my tattoo up on my shoulder blade.  Kat VonD has stuff that you can get at Sephora that I want to get and try.  Medical mackeup would probably work too, but Im guessing that its more expensive.

NONE of the makeup options I tried worked, maybe my tats are just too dark and my skin is too fair, I don’t know. I wanted a bolero to cover them, but couldn’t find one that matched my dress. In the end, I decided to rock them and I’m glad I did because it just wouldn’t be me without them… but I didn’t have to worry about parents or grandparents (or gangs, eek!).

I have three tattoos but only one will be visable in my dress (well, unless I get one with a super low back and I’m not planning on it).  I haven’t decided yet if I will cover it up (it is the kanji symbol for strong) but if I do cover, I’m going to use the Kat Von D stuff.  My friend used it for her wedding last month and you couldn’t even tell.

I have one on my ankle that is in memory of my late grandfather. I’m planning on a shorter dress and rocking my tattoo even though some of my family members dont approve. I got my tattoo for a reason and in my heart that reason doesn’t change because its my wedding day 🙂

I have a rose tattoo on my shoulder and my dress has embroidered roses all over so I figure the tat’s just a free accessory 🙂
