Okay. I love my tattoo. Obviously, or else I wouldn’t have paid for it and had it inked into my skin for the rest of my life. However, everytime my grandparents (yes, all 4) see it, their eyes start twitching. My grandmother said something about covering it for the wedding because “it’s really distracting”. I had never considered the idea of it being distracting to the people gathered for the ceremony.
So, that being said… Are you covering up your tats? Would you, if you had them?

@Future.McGuffee: Yeah I’m totally gonna raise my hand and ask the priest/preacher/officiant “Ummmm can’t you repeat that? My ears stopped listening to you because my eyes were looking at something.”
I don’t have any tattoos, but I wouldn’t cover up. You love it. It’s a part of you. Do you not want to fully be “you” on your day? I would think not!

I think tattoos on brides can be beautiful. One of my bridesmaids had a tattoo and asked if I wanted it covered, I told her not to cover it. For myself, though, anything visible was covered, but that’s just me.
You love it and it’s a part of you, so I say show it proud. You’ll have plenty of photos from the front that don’t show it to share with your grandparents.

I find things like this breathtaking.

I would never, under any circumstance, for any person, for any reason cover any tattoo on my body.
Sorry, I just have a really strong opinion about this.

@Future.McGuffee: Tattooed brides are the best brides! 😀 😀 😀 This is coming from someone biased though, I will be so PROUDLY showing off my ink on the day of. It is a requirement of my wedding dress that I can do so. Your ink is beautiful and you should soooo flaunt it. You wanna look like YOU on your wedding day, I’m sure, and I feel like any tattoo someone gets is usually a huge part of them.
I’m honestly a little sad when I hear about people covering up beloved tattoos for their wedding day, it’s a day you get to choose to look any way you want!

Honestly, I wouldn’t a tattoo anywhere that couldn’t be covered in an evening/cocktail dress for professional reasons. If i had a tattoo that I loved that showed in a wedding dress, I would let it show. I know my grandma is going to be unhappy if I wear a strapless dress to a wedding. Might as well show a tattoo that you love. 🙂
I keep wanting to get a small bird tattoed on my butt or lower back, but the SO and my dad are against it. Thus far I’ve held off because I’m afraid of pain and afraid I might not like the design in 15 years. I get tired of a shirt in 6 mos!

I dont have one but my Fiance and I are getting one on our ring finger with each other names. It is a little something between the two of us. For those who have them to each is own if it makes you feel special and it is a reflection of how you feel it is your day do what you want.

I love my tattoo. It’s on my shoulder blade so no I won’t be covering it up.

@Future.McGuffee: There is a reason why you got it right? I have 4 tattoos, the largest one won’t be showing because its almost my entire right thigh. I paid a lot of money for my tattoos, I love them, and you better believe they will be showing on my wedding day. I have people in my family (and my FI’s) that don’t like that I have tattoos, but my Fiance has more than I do, and it is a part of who we are! Our wedding day is for us, so we wont be doing things to make others happy!

I have four…one on each shoulder and one on each lower leg…my grandparents and mom aren’t fans of them but they’re a part of me…I plan on wearing them beautifully and proudly at my wedding 🙂 I say, if you love them and they make you “you”, then show them off…after all, you ARE gonna have them the rest of your life!

I got a rose as a present from my (heavily inked and pierced) Maid/Matron of Honor, specifically to show off, bringing my total to 5. That artwork is a part of you, literally. You obviously love it, even if they don’t. Show it off, girl, it’s your day!

I’ve got the word “love” between my shoulder blades, and I definitely wont be covering it up! I had the same thing with my granny when I first got my tattoo, she asked me what I’d do on my wedding day, and I told her I’ll be wearing a strapless dress and will be proud to show it off because it’s a part of me 🙂
Do what you want, it’s your special day- it’s not up to anyone else 🙂

I don’t have any tattoos but I have plenty of piercings. I am not taking any of them out. They are a part of me and I want to show them. My more traditional relatives all say I need to take them out but I want to be myself that day. 🙂 If I had tattoos I would not cover them up.
