@Kanebaby: not tryin to sound like a ragin biotch myself, but her getting a tattoo really shouldn’t matter. Yeah it will be visible but unless its some hugely offensive tattoo I don’t see what the big deal is.

I don’t have any and don’t intend to get one, but I also don’t think tattoos are a big deal.  They’re pretty common.

Half my wedding party does and half doesn’t.  It doesn’t bother me at all.

My daughter and my baby sister are my LOHs/Lady of Honours. My daughter has a tat on her back and it will be visible. I am having the girls wear boleros for the ceremony, but if she decides not to wear it, it will still be okay with me. Her tat is a part of who she is and it is not offensive, so I don’t see a problem with her having it show.

It is up to you what you want to do, but if she is not a nice person, maybe that should be the reason she isn’t included in the bridal party; not because she has a tat. JMHO

i can understand you not wanting her tattoo in you photos, but it is her arm and she can do whatever she wants with it. Her being in your wedding should not be about her appearance but what she means to you and your Fiance. I suggest offering a wrap or shawl so that it is not so visible and not mentioning it because she will probably be offended. Just my thoughts. good luck!

I don’t know if this would work, but could you just sit down with her. Tell her you think it’s totally cool that she’s getting a new tattoo, that you’re not against her getting one at all, but if she was willing to wait until after the wedding to get it that you’d gladly pay for it for her.

@Kanebaby: Why is she your MOH? not to be rude just curious as you really don’t seem to like her

It doesn’t bother me. However, once I was a Bridesmaid or Best Man at a wedding and the bride did not want any tattoos. She was a bit rude about it since one of the BMs had a big butterfly on her upper back. I was the Maid/Matron of Honor and she was snapping at me to help cover it up – without saying anything to the Bridesmaid or Best Man herself. Hmmph

@Kanebaby: You have to remember that you can’t control someone else’s body and to not be overly shallow about what she looks like. Be happy that she will be there for you and that you are marrying the love of your life. Those are the most important things.

I think if it’s an offensive tat then get her to cover it for the photos and ceremony and then let her do her own thing for the reception. my best friend will be my bm and i will prob pick a backless dress for her so that her tat can be seen, hers is beautiful though and is about our friendship though so totally different story
