Hello everyone . I am getting married March 20, 2021 and I wanted to know if you all would find it offensive to ask someone to cover their tattoos as a bridesmaid ? I will be covering two of mine, but i have at least one bridesmaid who has quite a bit of them including large tattoos on her fingers and hands and arms and I believe they will take away from the dress and my photos.
You may choose a dress with lace or cloth sleeves if you like, or a high neckline , for all. But not choose bare arm dresses and ask people to cover tattoos or scars. Their bodies, their choice. Same as hair, makeup and facial hair. Bride or groom only pick dresses or suits .
I see where you are coming in the post but it I was me in the Bm shoes and the bride asked me to cover mine I would be pissed 😤. As mine are very meaningful. I would probably drop from the wedding or just unhappy, is there away the dress could be altered not reveal the tattoos as much?
Please dont let others hostility make you feel bad. I posted in this once and got so much negative feedback from a simple yes or no question. It is your wedding and I feel that you can ask that. If my friend request me to cover my tattoos for their wedding I would because I respect that it is their day.
Hi! Congratulations! This isn’t the answer you are likely looking for, but I absolutely find it 100% unambiguously offensive for a bride to ask a bridesmaid to cover her tattoos. My tattoos don’t show, so this isn’t even personal. I just believe in accepting people as they are, and I think friendships are more important than aesthetics. Their tattoos are a reflection of themselves, the people you asked to be in your bridal party, and it feels insulting to ask them to cover that up. That is a decision they should make for themselves.
I had the realization the other day that my bestie has tattoos. I had not even thought about it. Hers are beautiful watercolors, one on each arm representing the two little girls she lost. For this I would never ask her to cover them up, but the random one on her foot that has no meaning I’d feel okay about asking her to find shoes that cover it. If someone has tattoos just to have tattoos and understands why you want them covered I think they would be receptive. If the tattoos have meaning like a connection to a lost one then that is part of them. I know this doesn’t answer one way or the other but I hope it helps.
