You love your bridesmaid, otherwise I assume that she would not be in your wedding.  Her tattoos are part of that.  Unless she is totally on board with covering them up, please do not attack her with coverup or make her feel guilty for not wanting to slather makeup on something that is uniquely her.  Her tattoos will not “ruin” your photos, they are not for Martha Stewart, they’re for your memories.  Your bridemaids are not pretty dolls to line up–they are individuals with their own personalities, wants and needs.  Don’t forget that.  

If you wish to cover yours up, I suggest a visit to a MAC consultant–they do a really good job of everything else, they should be able to cover up and show you how to do it yourself for a small tattoo with no problem.

You knew she had the tatoos when you asked her to be a bridesmaid, right?  If this was a deal-breaker (which in my opinion it should not have been) then perhaps you shouldn’t have asked her.  Do NOT ask her to cover them up, that is going to make her feel like crap.  Your relatives will get over it.  Your friend will not.

I can’t tell from your response if you bridesmaid is cool with covering her tatto. Have her wear a shrug to cover up during the cermony. It’s honestly childish and I don’t think the focus is going to be on her. By the way one of my bridesmaids, has tattos on her legs, half a sleeve, and her back has them, I have no plans on asking her to cover up. Both my father’s family, and Fi family are conservative and they might have something to say about it. I honestly don’t care she is my friend and I accept her as she is. I would hope you take her feelings into consideration, and you at least pay for it.

If you want to cover yours, Dermablend seems to work really well. Ulta and Macy’s both show up as having it online. You can check in stores as well.

Unless she’s looking to cover her tattoos up, you should not be asking her to do it. It’s the judgemental folks’ problem if they’re going to stare, not hers.

As a pp said, you knew she had them when you asked her. Be prepared for her to not be happy about doing this, or flat out refusing to do it.

I agree with the others.  You can cover your own if you’re concerned, but you were aware your friend had the tattoos when you asked her to be in the wedding.  You shouldn’t have asked her if you knew it’d be a problem.  Her tattoos are part of who she is, so I think it’s inconsiderate to ask her to cover them.

The OP didn’t ask whether or not it was okay to have her girls cover their tattoos so I’m not sure why she’s getting so much unsolicited advice.

OP: I think most professional MU artists will do it. I used Make Me Fabulous (from Ballston Spa) for my wedding and I’m fairly certain tattoo coverage is something they offer.

@UpstateCait:  You’re right.  That was rude of me.

OP, I am sorry about my previous comment.  Let me try and answer the question you asked.  Is it possible to call around to local makeup artists and ask if they do it?  Like CaitMarae suggested, I think most will do it….or for a less expensive you could have the bridesmaid wear a shrug.

@UpstateCait:  I gave her unsolicited advice because she could be putting herself in the position of hurting the feelings of a bridesmaid, which I try to keep women from doing.  Last time I checked, we were allowed to post opinions as long as they were not personal attacks or snarkiness, and I neither attacked her nor used snark.

@futuremrsfitz18:  But she wasn’t looking for your opinion hence why I didn’t think it was appropriate to dish it out. If she posted “Is it ok to ask my ‘maids to cover their tats?” then sure, tell her how you feel but that wasn’t the question or what this thread was intended for.

@Jane323:  You’re welcome!

A friend used Dermablend products to cover her tattoo.  And after seeing the skeleton man advert I’d say it’s pretty good!
