I have one behind my ear that I covered. Kat Von D has a tattoo concealer that works wonderful! Couldn’t even tell it was there! Just make sure you get the right color and no one will ever know 😉

It’s worth a shot, then at least you’ll know if it’ll do the trick or not. We barely had to use any to cover mine, I basically have the entire container left so depending on how large yours is you might be able to get away with only needing one.

It sounds wierd, but make sure you shave over the tattoo before applying your concealer.

Get someone to airbrush your skin tone over it, or if you just don’t want it in photos have the photos retouched. Whats so bad about having tattoos showing for your wedding? I have a full sleeve, a chest piece and legs tattoos and all of them were showing at my wedding. My grandma wasn’t pleased that they were showing but It’s who I am so I figured why the hell not?

A big black one on your back is going to be tricky. My makeup artist did three trials for my big (5 or 6 inch square) red and black tattoo. The Mederma, Sephora,, and Kat Von D stuff was fine for my line drawing one of the same size but not the solid black/red one. We used Tattoo Camo http://www.tattoocamo.com/

Coverage was REALLY good with 3 layers and it blended much more naturally than the Mederma. It was really sticky and humid for my wedding, and I wore a lace bolero too, so I needed a minor touch-up halfway through the day. It probably wouldn’t have needed a touch up if I’d not had the bolero on, but I’d already made my mind up and picked the accessories based on not being able to blend it smoothly.

Anyway. Big, solid-color dark tattoos are their own animal. You’ll have to do a lot of trial and error. The blending might be more problematic than the coverage because you need a lot of layers to fully cover the deep colors but then it doesn’t blend smoothly. If your skin tones are very fair, I’d be happy to round up my Sephora, KvD and Tattoo Camo stuff and sell it for a fraction of what I paid— realistically won’t ever use it again– just PM me 🙂
