I get that some women are traditional where they think women shouldn’t tattoo and mark up their bodies, but this is your friend, probably your best friend, the person you chose to stand next to you while you make the biggest life change. IMO that is plain rude, disgusting, and unclassy behaviour to want to change someone’s appearance because they don’t like how it looks. 

I think you should stick up for your friend and tell them to suck it up.

@reynaweddingbee:  I absolutely agree with the other posts about letting her expose her tattoos. She didn’t pay for them to be covered up, and honestly your Future Mother-In-Law and Future Sister-In-Law need to accept that it is YOUR wedding.

I can’t wait to see my mother-in-law’s face when she sees my maid of honor…who currently has pink hair and is covered in tattoos.  HA.  Who the hell cares what they think?

I think the next time either Mother-In-Law or SIL mentions it, you should say, very clearly, something like, “I love Maid/Matron of Honor and her tattoo is part of her. Hearing you saying negative things about her makes me sad. I’d really prefer it if we didn’t talk about this again.” Prepare what you’re going to say in advance so that you’re ready. If they continue, go super-short: “I don’t want to talk about this.” Rinse, repeat.
