    I would cover them with makeup if you don’t like them. You can try stage makeup instead of the airbrush becuase I *think* it may hold up better since you’re concerned about sweating and smearing. I’m not a makeup artist but I’ve heard of people saying that stage makeup was better for this, hopefully someone with more knowledge will chime in regarding the use of stage makeup if covering it with makeup is what you will go with

    @BeeEuphoric:  Considering the fact that you’re regretting these tattoos, I’d strongly suggest that you don’t get another one that’s even bigger.

    Could you wear a light shawl?

    I’d probably go w. the airbrush makeup. Appoint one of your bridesmaids the duty of making sure that the tats stay covered.

    If these tattoos really bother you in everyday life, I’d come up with a long-term plan on how to save up to get them removed.

    I think a tattoo with cherry blossom would  look awesome! I say go for the tattoo!

    If this is a tattoo you would want anyways without getting married then go for it! I think that it is a lovely tattoo. But if you have any hesitations about getting the large cover up piece then you need to wait. You can buy stage quality sweat resistant make up. Look up dermablend and zombie boy.

    @BeeEuphoric:  Yeah, it is a bit of a toughie! Well I suppose if you really would like another tattoo and you’d be proud to show it off, then I would probably go the route of getting another one… as long as you’re sure that you want it and you’re not just doing it for the wedding day.

    If you want to just cover it up for now, I would try kat von d’s make up line.
