umm.. well, my 2 cents on the whole tat controversey.. i love them.. i have angel wings tattooed on my back in white ink.. so when i'm tan they really show.. for my wedding i'm planning on getting dress thats low cut in the back so they show and then highlighting them with something shimmery Smiley they're in memory of my grandma so thats why i love them so much! each tattoo that you get is a part of you, dont be afraid to show them off:)


as far as covering 'em up:
Nyc concealer stick.. i swear by it.. it's not wax based so it wont melt off... dab that over your tat just like ya would a blemish or something.. it'll make your tats look greyish.. then blend, and then spray that sally hanson stuff on it and then set it with a loose powder...then you should be good to go.. Smiley please let us know what works for you! Cheesy and congratulations on getting married!!!!!!

I, also, have quite a few tattoos that will be visible with the wedding dress on.  I am only going to cover the one on my back, since it is black work and would stand out.  I got a recommendation from the dress shop to hit the MAC counter in the mall, they apparently have something that works quite well. 
I will let you know what I go with, the wedding is in 4 weeks!!

okay, I was wrong about the stuff being at the MAC counter.  It is a product called Dermablend that can be found in stores like Dillards, Macy's and most any department store.  It is costly and I don't think it is worth it just to cover up one tattoo.  My makeup artist has said that she can do tattoo coverup, but I didn't ask what products she uses.  I will try to remember what she uses and take pictures. 

oh god, the wedding is in 12 days!

I haven't read any of the replies, so forgive me if I'm repeating everyone elses' responses...

I would definetly say let those babies show!! My wedding was in Feb., but both of my tats (lower back) were covered so I can't speak from experience. I have some very conservative family members as well, but the way I look at it is: This is your wedding, and if your hubby-to-be is cool with it- don't worry about it. Especially if you two are paying for the wedding!!

I know a lot of my older family doesn't like my nose ring, but I kept it in anyway Grin

true.  i'm still sort of on the fence...  i haven't found a dress yet, though, so i guess i'm waiting to see what they look like in combination with whatever i choose - for example, if only parts of them are sticking out, i'll just cover 'em.  otherwise i'll probably let them show.  Smiley

Well, if only parts of them are sticking out, then they'll be rubbing the edge of your dress. I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that nothing you can find to use, even the spray on pantyhose, will resist constant rubbing with fabric. I suggest you choose a design that will showcase them and go for it, if you're concerned about only part of them showing.

that's a good point.  strapless would be a good option for showing my shoulder tattoo, but i'm not certain about how strapless would look on the rest of my body.  i haven't tried a single dress on yet, so i really have no idea as far as what i'll be getting, but strapless is definitely my first choice if i can pull it off.

I'm getting married next May and in my searches through wedding magazines, I've read some rave reviews of this stuff...according to The Knot, the results are "flawless, undetectable, and water- and smudge-proof."  I've never used it myself, but thought it might be worth a try...?

Good luck and congrats!

***Baby don't worry cause now I got your back. And every time you feel like crying,
I'm gonna try and make you laugh. And if I can't, if it just hurts too bad,
then we will wait for it to pass and I will keep you company
through those days so long and black.***
