This was asked recently — see this post.

My answer is no, I will not cover the tattoos I have that will be visible on my wedding day. And if I have a Bridesmaid or Best Man who has them, I will not ask her to cover them, either.

I have a number of visible tattoos ( back, arm, collar bones ) along with my bridesmaids i too at first considered covering them, however not only do cover ups look cheesy but i paid good money and have beautiful artwork on my body i got them to show off in the first place and will do it on my wedding as well!

My Bridesmaid or Best Man has her full lower leg covered in a tattoo (sleeve? I dont know what you call them but I think thats what you refer to when its on the arm…dunno about legs) I have no issue with her tattoos really. Theyre really pretty, although I wont make her cover them up I may tell the photographer to maybe get shots where her leg is hidden, or if its a great shot to photoshop it out (hmm after saying that, is that offensive to her?) hmmm

My tatoos are part of who I am and I will be displaying them proudly! But they are not huge tattoos either. Just some flowers on my left calf and a froggie on my back!

I would say don’t cover them up.. this is your wedding day… they are yours/your bm beautiful artwork πŸ™‚ SHOW ‘EM OFF πŸ™‚

I have 3 tattoos and there is no way that would make adjestments to wedding dress etc just to cover them up. To me they are like a permanent necklace or bracelet, they are an accessory that can never be taken off πŸ™‚

I actually just got a tattoo on the front of my left shoulder. It is a W with flowers around it as a little keepsake from my maiden name. I absolutely love it and will be proud for everyone to see it on my big day!

I think that is all for tattoos in my wedding party, not that I would mind. I think we are all individuals and as long as they aren’t trying to steal my day, I don’t mind whatever they want to do or show.

None of my bridesmaids had tattoos, but I don’t think I would make them cover them up for my wedding if they did. it’s their body, you know?

Then again, I might feel differently if my wedding were more formal. As it is, the whole thing is relatively casual.

I’m not covering mine and if my BM’s had them I wouldn’t ask them to cover up.  that’s just my personal preference though πŸ™‚

I don’t see any problem with tattooed brides or tattooed bridesmaids. People are individuals. If my tattoo were to freak out someone on my wedding day, I would hope they’d be polite enough not to make a scene about it, you know?

I would feel horrible asking a Bridesmaid or Best Man to cover up a tattoo… to me it’s almost like saying… your nose is kinda big, can you wear a bandaid over that thing?

I think tattoos are a big part of a person’s identity… and I think if they chose to get one, they shouldn’t feel ashamed for sake of your aesthetics! That’s just my opinion πŸ™‚

I am definetly keeping my tattoo in the open (though it is only on my wrist) but I think it is totally ok to keep it in the open! It is a statement of who you are and I think flaunting it is ok.

If I loved my tattoo, I would flaunt it! Since it’s more a regret and I’ve thought about getting it removed, I’ll definitely be covering. I’ve also talked to my photographer about photoshopping any failings in the tattoo camo so I don’t have a weird blotch or ink peaking through in the pictures.
