Hello lovely ladies! I've got a half sleeve of very colourful tattoos and that's my dress in the picture. I am thinking of either having the sleeves removed or covering my tats up, but before I do that, any of you tattooed ladies had similar sleeves? If so, could I please see some pictures? I'm afraid that the tattoos will look weird through the sleeves. Thank you!

This is mine. Don't cover your tattoos up they are apart of who you are and I'm sure you'll still look lovely

Personally I say wear your tattoos with pride, you are still you on your wedding day! But if you want them covered up Dermacol concealer is really good at covering tatts as is Kat Von D Lock it foundation, it's made just for that!! Xx

Wear your tattoos with pride. They're you & you should be proud of them. I'd never hide any of mine.

Did you not try it on before you bought it surely you would have seen it... If not go to a shop and try on something similar!

Thanks all! I've obviously tried the dress on when I bought it, but this was a while ago and I'v had my sleeve done afterwards. I'm not ashamed of my tattoos or anything, was just concerned they'd look weird underneath the sleeves. Hence thinking about having the dress modified to remove the sleeves. Or keep the sleeves and use some concealer/foundation. But won't the product rub into my dress? Oh, life's hard!

Don't cover your tats! I think they'll look absolutely fine through the sleeves, but the dress would also look lovely sleeveless. I kind of feel like the sleeves make it though. I'd just wear it how it is with pride!

I have a tattoo on my back that was on show, one person told me I could get make up to cover it up, I said no because it Is a memorial tattoo for my granddads and that way they are there with me on the day! I agree with the other comments, tattoos are a part of you.

I haven't any photos, but in my experience tattoos do look a bit odd under lace. Best idea (like someone else said) is to go try it on again. Sorry I can't be of more help!

Estée Lauder do a high coverage double wear that is said to cover tattoos - try a sample of that and see?

Check out offbeat bride and rock n roll wedding! You might not be interested in an alternative wedding but there's plenty of tattooed brides on there that look amazing with the tattoos on show!

most of my tattoos will be on show during the day as they all mean something to me. the only one i am having covered is at the back of my neck and thats only because i dont want to take anything away from my beautiful dress on the day. I will be using Dermacol as this has the best reviews xxx

Most of my tattoos will be on show on the day and I have absolutely no intention of covering any up, I love my tattoos plus I wouldn't risk any make up rubbing off on my dress

My sister has tattoos everywhere and her wedding dress was to her knee and off the shoulder with lace 3/4 sleeves so her tattoos were on show and she looked stunning leave you tattoos how they are and the dress how it is and be confident with the ink ️

Everyone is saying don't cover wear with pride etc etc.. . That is not the issue it wether it looks odd with half lace sleves over the tats... I get it.. the lace looks lovely but may look odd over ur tattoo... so try on see how it looks (to u no one else ) if ok go with it if not adjust the lace work n leave tats on display...
