If I were you I would contact a professional makeup artist, see if they can cover it up. I would recommend a shaw, but you might get warm or tired of wearing it.

you can always add lace backing to a dress, or just cover it up with makeup. I’m sorry its going to be tough for you to find something you will love

Keep your hair long and wear it down.

makeup and hair. From what i’ve heard, Sephora’s MUFE (Make-Up For Life) line has excellent coverage, thats what I intend on getting to cover up my art on my boob and back. I’m also stling my hair down, with the hopes that that covers it too. Good luck!!

Can you post a picture to visualize the location and/or what to do to cover it up?

 

Without seeing a picture I can suggest a bolero or buying a modest dress.  There are some dresses that are beautiful and cover up a lot more than others.

Dinair pharamceutical grade airbrush makeup and concealer will cover…find a makeup artist that does it. Flawless coverage

You could wear a dress with a full back like WToo’s Zora

or Watters Escalante

When you go to your appointment just tell them your issue and concerns. Thats what they are there for. I am sure they have a great selection of stunning gowns that would work great. keep us posted, I would love to see what you end up finding.

There are a couple things you could do. 

1) Find a makeup artist who has stage makeup experience who is willing to work with the photographer. Together they can match makeup to the photography style you are going with. 

2) Add a back lace panel or wear abody suit underneath your gown. Several modest brides whose weddings I had the priveledge to attend wore them and looked stunning!

3) Add a lace/sparkle cap sleeve back piece. or bolero =)

There have also been recent posts by bees who are wearing a lace kacket over their strapless dress.

@AndreaSpall:  I personally find any visible tattoos look horrible with bridal gowns in general. As @Mrs.LetsGoPens:  said you could look into getting it covered up, they do make a product meant for covering tattoos that is better coverage.

You could cover it up with dermablend! I didn’t really think those tattoo cover up makeups worked until I saw this commercial a few days ago (another bee posted it, I think):

If you want to wear strapless, try Dermablend or an equivalent. A friend of mine had a destination wedding in the Caribbean years ago and regrets not covering the arm and chest tats up.
