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 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.
