First time poster here and boy is my blood boiling!
My sister is always trying to upstage freaking everything I ever do. It is crazy. She always has to one-up me in EVERY aspect. Well I am getting married in 2 weeks and my sister decided to get this beautiful back tattoo, that will show in full view in her bridesmaid dress (did NOT make her MOH). I don’t care about the tattoo itself, but I feel like it is just another way for her to steal the spot light from me. Now everyone will be saying “oh, look at your beautiful back tattoo” instead of paying attention to me-the BRIDE. I get ONE DAY a year and she wont even let me have that one day! I am seriously considering cutting her out of the wedding. Help, please!

Omg what. People will not be distracted from you on your wedding because your sister has a new tattoo. They’ll probably say “hey that’s cool” or not even notice. You HAVE to chill, everything’s fine and this is NOT a reason to cut your sister out of the wedding (WHAT?).
Also, if she wanted to upstage you, there are far better things she could do. Most of what other people do is NOT ABOUT YOU and I guarantee this tattoo had nothing to do with your wedding day and if it did then jokes on her because it will 100% not work.

Your sister might be trying to upstage you and she might not be but you need to remember to stay calm. No matter what she does, your wedding is about you and your future husband and your guests know that.
Also, depending on how quickly she heals and how big the tattoo is, she’s in for a rude awakening come the day of the wedding. Her back will most likely be hot, tight and itchy -like a sunburn- and she will be uncomfortable as all get out. (It will probably be peeling too.)
This more than likely wasn’t the best time to get a brand new tattoo.
Don’t freak, forget about her and enjoy your day!

I really don’t think your sister put a permanent marking on her body to upstage you on your wedding day, that’s sort of insane.
If that is the case, remember no one’s going to ignore the woman in the big white dress, the actual bride, in favour of looking at your sister’s new tattoo.
Take comfort in the fact that she’s not showing up in your same wedding dress 😉

Wow. You are definitely overreacting here. What a ridiculous idea that a person would get a tattoo to upstage someone’s wedding day. I can’t believe you are actually considering cutting her out of your wedding over this. Wow.

A new back tattoo will not upstage a bride.

I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that most people’s reaction to a giant, back-covering tattoo is not going to be “Oh, look at that beautiful tattoo!” but my crowd might be much different than yours.

hahaha those were my thoughts exactly!

Uh… I think you want to be mad at her?
No one is going to care about her tattoo. You’re overthinking this.

There is literally nothing that anyone can do to upstage the bride. Take a deep breath.

LOL, this is a first. I’ve heard of brides upset because they dislike tattoos and wish someone would have waited to avoid a negative reaction, but never someone worried she will be upstaged by one! FYI both attitudes are equally inappropriate.
OP, it’s your sister’s body, and whatever your feelings are on the subject of tattoos, you do not get to dictate. Even if she is doing this to allegedly “look good” at your wedding, so what? If you cut her out that is only a bad reflection on your character, not hers.
That said, I’m out on that limb with beebee1983 :

I don’t know if your sister is trying to upstage you or not. You know your sister and we don’t. Maybe she’s crazy and petty; maybe you’re looking to be mad at her. But I do know that she will not accomplish upstaging you. Someone getting a tattoo does not live in the same realm as someone getting married.

She must really hate you to spend hundreds of dollars and permanently mark her body just to take attention away from you! Props to her for commitment!

OP, you’re about 17, right?
