This is your day and your tattoo is a part of you! I hope you don’t cover it, but I wouldn’t want you to feel self-conscious about it on your wedding day either.

My vote is let it shine! But only you can decide if you would be comfortable showing it off.

I say let that beautiful tattoo show!  It’s a part of you and to me, a tattoo against a wedding gown looks like an unexpected peice of artwork against a canvas!  Pretty!  I didn’t cover mine, either and my ex wasn’t really into tattoos but he said the same thing as yours.  Plus, I didn’t want to have to explain that it was covered up every 5 minutes to EVERYONE because I know that they would all be asking!

I would say to you that you should ask your photographer to remove it in a few shots so that you could have pictures with/without it!

Congrats!

I wouldn’t cover it up, as long as you’re comfortable showing it on your wedding day!  I almost bought a short dress just so I COULD show off my tattoo… but because of the time of year, I went with a long dress instead.  But I did get a few cute shots in of it!

i’m covering mine. whenever someone asks this question, people always seem to respond — it’s a part of you, why cover it up? — but i don’t feel this way. i have small tattoos on my back, and i just don’t like the way they look with my gown. my tattoos don’t define me, they’re just something on my body, so covering them is no different than covering my legs with a long dress.

do whatever YOU want.
