I have loads of tattoos and I'm really stuck on whether to cover them with heavy duty camouflage makeup or not. On one hand, I'm not sure if my photos and dress would look better (a bit more classic and 'cleaner') without them showing, but on the other hand, they're such a part of me that I can't imagine them not being there! Did anyone cover tattoos? Did you regret it? Or did you not cover tattoos and regret it?

Hi your tattoos are part of you why cover them up :)

Would you feel like yourself if the tattoos were covered up?? If so then keep them on show, you should feel proud to be able to show them off on your big day!! If not, and you'd be happier with 'cleaner' pictures then cover them. It's entirely what makes you happiest, I know if it was me I would want to show them off.

I have ink on both my upperarms. I have a strapless dress and we get married in a church in Nov. so I have a big coat on for the church and photos and all my ink will be on show at the reception and party. Like you, they are part of me and people would think it odd if they suddenly weren't there!!

If you feel happier with them covered then do it, but at the same time they are part of you! I think a bride with tattoos looks cool!! 😎
