Good for you!!!  It’s nice that you like your bridesmaids just the way they are!  I’m still deciding whether or not to cover mine up 🙂

That’s awesome! Tats are amazing, especially when the tattooer is free to create artwork.

A friend of mine just showed me her wedding album.  She had a Bridesmaid or Best Man with a huge back and neck tattoo in a strapless dress.  The photographer took out the tatt in some pictures – but not in all.  When you meet your photographer after the wedding to design a book or photo shop some prints, ask him or her to delete the tattoo if it becomes the focal point of the picture – instead of you.  Otherwise, keep it in there since it is “her.”

For a minute I thought you were going to ask if it was okay to ask her to cover them up. It’s awesome that you’re so accepting of your friend and her ink! And congratulations — only 6 months to go!!

one of my bridesmaids, my best friend from high school, just got a tattoo and asked me if i wanted her to cover it up, and i said no way! her tattoo is an homage to our home state, so it’s like the history of our friendship is now on her arm! so cool! 🙂

I think that’s so cool of you to let her stand up and not ask her to cover her art. It’s part of who she is and so many brides would be more concerned about having things look like some unrealistic idea of perfect than about having it look like their day with their friends! As a tattooed bride with 4 out of 7 bms visibly tattooed, I’m really impressed by this!

I agree that it shouldn’t be covered up.  It’s part of who she is and I LOVE it when women show off their tats when dressed up.  I would if I ever had the courage to get one.

I have seen lots of gorgeous pictures of tattooed BMs.  She is going to look great.  By The Way, I love your positive attitude about the whole thing!

I think its an expression of who the person is.  I’m not one for tats, but think on the right person, it’s beautiful.  My friend’s husband has one of their two babies on his biceps.  And a smaller one with a date in a cloud..date his father passed.  It shows his eternal love for them!

You’re a good friend DDW.  It’s so wonderful to love our friends just as they are.
