I have seen these but I wondered how and how well they work? I have one tattoo, it is my inner upper arm (under my left arm, on my arm right next to my armpit). It is a blue and black compass and basically covers a space bigger than a baseball. The only time I am thinking I might not want it to show is in my dance with my dad and dance with my husband (as far as photos). My only concern with using a kit is wondering if it is sticky, if it is something that I will feel the whole day and most importantly does it really completely cover it up. If it does NOT, that part of my body might look a little questionable with black and blue ink somewhat poking through, like maybe I have weird underarm hair, which in that case I would rather them see the tattoo perfectly clear. haha I hope that makes sense.

When I worked in make-up, we used to use Dermablend on customers a lot to cover up tatoos. It did a great job! Just remember, it takes a few coats of it and it might be easier to go somewhere where they have experience applying it and can make it look flawless (if its in the budget) If not, just play around with it on a small spot to see how it goes!

i agree, Dermablend works well. Make sure you match it to your skin tone, which was very difficult for me…

I’ve heard dermablend, and also you will probably want something to set it – like powder and some kind of waterproof spray, to keep it from rubbing off when people hug you. I have a feeling that it will be pretty hard to DIY correctly, so be sure to buy your supplies early and practice! wear it around all day and touch it a lot to see how it holds up.
my SIL had her tattoos covered up by a professional makeup artist. it looked perfect for the first several hours of the wedding, but by the time the evening got late, the makeup started to wear off just a little bit and it started to look like a bruise.
thankfully, your most crutial photo-ops will be earlier in the evening!

If it is just the pictures you are concerned with I would just have your photographer edit the tattoo out. I would be afraid of any coverup stuff getting on my white dress.

Have you tried trying to find someone who does airbrushing? I found someone local that is covering up mine for $15 and it lasts all day.

in the upper arm area you really have to be careful that the makeup doesnt rub off on your dress *eek*
why dont you keep it and have it photoshopped out of photos by your photographer? Im sure they could do it if you dont want it in the pictures.
