How does everyone feel about showing, or hiding Tattoos on their wedding day? Personally I have 9, and I don’t want any showing. I keep seeing folks with them and it’s a huge no for me...just curious

    I’m hiding all of mine. They’re not bad or anything, just not compatible with my wedding dress.

    I don’t have any, but one of my bridesmaids has a full sleeve. She won’t be covering them for my wedding. I figure they are a part of her and I love and accept her exactly how she is.

    I have about the same amount. Some I'm fine with showing such as my sons foot prints on my shoulder because of what it represents and others I definitely don't want to be seen lol

    I think it is all based on comfort. I did not cover one dedicated to my late cousin because it means a lot to me but I did cover up my other ones.

    I have eight and I don’t plan on covering any up. I don’t see the point in spending the time and money to get them if I plan to hide them.

    To each their own. Mine will be covered up but that's more out of coincidence than planning.

    Totally aside, sometimes I cover my shoulders, and arms, and front and back by beltline, and sometimes I don't. 95%of late fall to late spring, mine are never seen. They are small, it is New England. They are not revolting against my parents, or any kind of statement, or major art. I have wondered before how someone with arm and neck covered feels. It probably sounds stupid, but since I was little my dolls and even my trolls had princess gowns and fashion bathing suits. My friends put plastic tattoos on, but I wouldn't do it where they might mess up a glamour gown. A fashion baby even at that age. ... But now that I have kids, I wonder.

    I have five. Some will show but I am going to embrace them. I know certain people have used makeup to cover them up for the big day.

    I'm covering the ones that are going to be visible with makeup, they just don't go with my wedding dress, and my bridesmaid is going to cover hers up with makeup as well.

    I have one on my shoulder, it’s a mother daughter tattoo of a 🐞. No hiding that and I’m not worried as I won’t even see it since it’s on my back! Lol

    I have a traditional half sleeve and it looks really good with my dress. The whole vibe of our wedding is very boho, so I want them to be visible. Plus, all of my bridesmaids are heavily tattooed as well. It was never a thought that I would cover mine or want them to cover theirs.

    I have a couple on my arms and initially i was gonna cover them up to appease my mom. she hates my tattoos. but honestly i thought about how that's who i am and it was not ME who wanted them covered - it was her. so why cover them then if it's not for me. i ended up not covering them.

    I have 9, 5 show. I wish I had the money to get the one tattoo before my wedding. But I don't. Its all personal choice. I thought about covering 2 of mine because they need to be redone. But I'm unsure.
