    I think it’s a great idea.

    I heard someone talk about colouring in her tattoo (with felt tip pens or something) to match her wedding colours. I thought that was an amazing idea too. You might want to brighten yours up, to make the blue colour pop..

    I have 3 black stars running down from the back of my neck. I absolutely love them but I’ve been thinking about covering them up on my wedding day. I think that on your wedding day your makeup, your hair and your skin must be perfect, flawless and immaculate and I think that the tattoos (pretty as they are) just don’t match the full picture.

    I like it and you got it for a reason, not to cover it up!

    i think its a great idea! but i was one of those brides that let her tattoo show.

    i have a tattoo in between my shoulder blades. i really love it so i didnt find the need to cover it up. its also isnt huge or very in your face, i thought it looked lovely with my dress and didnt take away from teh “bridal” look at all…but that is my my experience

    here is a pic ๐Ÿ™‚

    plus – i wore a veil so that covered it during the ceremony

    I have two tattoos on my back- one angel representing my grandmother- and a nautical star representing my grandfather… Both mean alot to me and i wouldnt cover them no matter what….

    Obviously if you hate the tattoo cover it… but if its a part of who you are dont change it just for one day…

    I have 8 earrings in my ears (no gauges) and everyone keeps asking me if i will take most of of the out for my wedding day… and my response always is no because they are who i am and im not changing to match some sterotype of what a bride is supposed to be!!! So i will not be covering tattoos or taking out my many tasteful earrings (though they will all be diamond balls!!)

    So my vote- Flaunt it!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I cant see your picture, but if you are comfortable with showing your tattoo then you should, I have a big tattoo on my back and I will not be covering it up at all!

    I started a thread about mine being finished BEFORE and FOR the wedding. Here is is, in all of it’s glory. I will be wearing my hair very long and down in a hippie style with a jeweled head band…my wedding is along the lines of Anthropogie meets traditional meets city. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m a pretty traditional person underneath the ink.
