@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 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! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ 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.  πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚ 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 πŸ™‚

Do what you want, it’s your special day- it’s not up to anyone else πŸ™‚

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.  πŸ™‚ If I had tattoos I would not cover them up.
