How much was your dress? Alterations for that will be very expensive. The way your dress is built is very structured in the midsection – it’s how it stays up being strapless. You will remove all the structure and I don’t think it will look like you want. You’ll want to speak with a seamstress but I’d think it might actually be cheaper to just buy a dress with the back you want.

I would leave the back  alone,  not only because it looks great as it is   , but for the reason  pp above gives . You already look better than the model in it. 

It is a wonderfully structured dress and doesn’t need to be messed with,  lol.  You don’t need a belt either , it just breaks the lovely elegant line

If this had a lower back it just wouldn’t stay up. If you really want your tattoo to be on show the. You need a different shape of dress. That being said this one looks nice on you and personally I think having a tattoo on show would clash with the formality of the dress.

evangaline23 :  the issue is not just that the dress won’t stay UP, but that the dress will no longer stay CLOSE to your body. The back of the dress is holding the front on to you, if that makes sense. Lowering the back will compromise the structural integrity of the dress and it won’t fit the same, whether or not you add straps (which you will need to to hold the dress up). If you wanted a low back dress, you should have bought one. I would just go with the dress as-is, and do a boudoir shoot or tell your photog you really want a pic of your tat when getting dressed before youre zipped up.
