Hey bees! I have a little dilemma. I am still waiting for pics of my gown, but basically its a sweetheart neckline, basque waisted bundle of ballgown beauty lol. Thing is, back in my proud “Hook’em Horns” days (major props if you know that reference), I got a large, lovely tattoo of a Longhorn’s skull, you guessed it, right over my heart. Fast forward 3 years later….Now my family, and fiance (of course) already know about the tattoo, and I love my quirky bit of art, but my childhood pastor does not know about it, nor do I want him to. What should I do to cover it? I actually ordered the dress around a cup and a half larger than i am, with the hopes that my boobs will kind of get “swallowed up” by the bustier; im already kind of flat chested as it goes. I don’t want to use makeup on it, as I dont want it smearing all over my gown. As i’m already styling my hair down, I might even strategically place a full curls in front to cover it up. Any other ideas bees? I sure could use ’em lol. And no snarky “well you should’ve thought of this before you got that tattoo”; I know for a fact that everyone here has been young, and have done things they may not have done at their present age and mindset.

Have you booked your makeup artist yet? They may be able to airbrush it away. I’ve seen it done and it’s INCREDIBLE what kind of disappearing act they are able to pull off!

I think if you really don’t want it to show, you are going to have to use cover up. Because hair moves, and unless you use a lot of padding I have a feeling the cups being too big will need to be altered to not just stick out from your chest. Oh and yay UT!!!

I advise to get the tattoo professionally covered and also stuff the cups of your dress!

i know you said you don’t want to do makeup on it but if you change your mind i like the MUFE waterproof concealer, covers ANYTHING and won’t budge

I say show it off. If your alright with it and so is your Fiance and immediate family, then why should you change something about yourself on such an important day that represents you? I’m sure your pastor has seen a tattoo before and if he’s that up tight about it, then let it be his problem not yours. I would hope that a tattoo wouldn’t change his view of you, because what kind of pastor would be so judgemental about someting so mundane? Unfortunately, if you still want to cover up I don’t really see another alternative besides make up or a huge bandage.
