Leave it out! I kind of like it. I can’t really explain why exactly, it’s just a tidbit of yourself peeking out!

I would personally cover it up because if I was a guest I would be wondering what your tattoo was and if I could only see a peep that would frustrate me, lol.

I’d leave it. The tattoo is a part of you.

@BP2Be:  I say leave it, it’s cool! Don’t risk the makeup, not worth it! Yay for Japanese dragons!

I would cover it.  

Sephora sells makeup specifically for covering tattoos by Kat Von D. 


By The Way, the back of your dress is gorgeous!!!  and I love the bracelet you have on.

I wonder about the same thing. The same amount peeks out in the same place on my gown. Although I love mine the concern of conservative family wondering about my mystery tattoo kind of worries me. I know we shouldn’t worry what others think because tattoos are part of who you are., But If you feel like putting makeup over it would help you not worry maybe just for the big day, that’s fine.   🙂 sorry I’m not a lot of help…haha.

I would try to cover it up, mainly because so little of it shows.

If more showed I would say leave it out but If you are planning on having it photoshopped out in pictures I would just cover it in real life it would make a lot less work for your photographer and a lot less chance for them to make a weird looking error in the middle of your back.

I have a tattoo on my upper back that I don’t particularly love, or hate; I also have a tattoo on my left forearm that I loooooove. At first I had every intention of covering both since my initial thought was they looked weird when I had my dress on.

Since then, I’ce decided to display them proudly since as PP’s have said, they are apart of me (of you, of whoever is wearin’ them). 

I can understand you wanting to cover them, so if it bothers you, then do it 🙂 Lots of good tattoo covering makeup products out there. But don’t rule out letting it show ’cause it’s awesome!

I would cover it up, as PP have mentioned it’s “just the tip” and doesn’t display the entire beauty of the tat. I feel it’s a sort of all or nothing thing, because just showing a very small piece looks odd.
