psyche1978 :  I’m not covering my tattoos. I have one on my arm and one on my back. My sister is one of my bridemaids and she has a sleeve along with tats on her back and I will not be asking her to cover hers either. I have another sister and bridemaid who all have tattoos. There dresses are strapless and they will not be covering theirs either.

I have several tattoos and like most ink addicts plans for several more once I’ve got the cash. My tattoos are a part of who I am, I won’t cover them on my wedding day. Only person who would care is my grandma and she long ago gave up, when my mom went to my tattoo artist for her first tattoo.

Think about how you want to feel on your day, how you feel seeing that tattoo? How you feel about covering, and how you would feel about having to cover it for any other occasion?

My tattoo wasn’t visible with the wedding gown I had, but if it was I wouldn’t have covered it up. It’s part of who I am. It’s a piece of me I selected to have forever and my friends and family know I have it. I think as long as you’re comfortable you shouldn’t feel the need to hide any tattoos you have.

I’m covering mine up just because I don’t want to hear anyone’s comments. Most of the guests don’t even know what I look like yet, they’re his extended family.

I don’t have tattoos (yet!), but I think its insane that youwould cover it because it doesnt “go” with your dress. Such a silly reason IMO. Wear your gorgeous dress, rock your awesome tattoo, and ignore any comments from ignorant POS!

psyche1978 :  I vote rock it, tattoos are wonderful works of art and so is your dress. Let the naysayers suck a lemon.

I have three tattoos on my upper back, and one on my lower calf (FI and I are both getting new ink for Christmas, but I haven’t decided what I want or where I want it yet). I plan to show off my existing tattoos. That’s one of the main things I’m looking for in a dress.

psyche1978 :  Rock the tattoos!  It is a part of you.  I showed mine at my elopement and plan to show them again at our big wedding celebration.  No one can make worse comments than my mom so I am good.  At Thanksgiving she stated that she thinks all my tattoos are “ugly” as I am showing my sister my latest one undecided I just ignored her because people who like tattoos love mine and so do I.

psyche1978 :  I have extensive tattoos which cover from the nape of my neck to the base of my spine.

I love them, and I am in no way ashamed, but I plan to cover them for the wedding. My ink is a sacred statement; a totem pole built on my spine. It isn’t something I typically allow others to see. Most people who don’t know me intimately aren’t even aware I have them.

While everyone attending my wedding is well aware of the existence and meaning of my tattoos, I don’t want them to distract from the intent of the day; each tattoo is there to represent someone I have loved, and a lesson I want to remember. It is simultaneously a history lesson and spiritual refrain.

On that day of all days, I want the entire focus to be on my new husband and the future we are creating together.

Also, just from an aesthetic standpoint,  they are large and dark and wild-looking. I’m shooting for something softer and more understated so they just aren’t in keeping with the look or mood I’m going for on my wedding day.

I’m planning to wear makeup and a bolero as well.

I did not cover mine. I love them, everyone knows I have them (arms, shoulders, back). It was not a factor in my wedding “look”.

Mines upper right. I will probably shop for a conservative dress but one that is not gramma style. I am not mormon but like some of the dresses I see on this site.

eg: https://www.latterdaybride.com/a-line-wedding/belleview-details

I don’t really care if my tattoos are out anyways but I personally don’t like strapless wedding gowns.. they are the craze right now but no thanks for me. Not flattering. So a conservative one works for me.
