Many brides with body art opt to hide their visible tattoos on their wedding day or they ask the photographer to keep them out of photos. Other brides get tattoos removed with laser tattoo removal before the big day. With more and more people of marrying age sporting tattoos, the question of tattooed bridesmaids is also coming up. So, can a bride ask those in her wedding party to cover up their tattoos?
According to a recent article by brides.com, the answer is a strong no. Telling a bridesmaid to cover up her tattoos might make her think that you don’t appreciate her uniqueness and that you disapprove of her life choices. According to the article, asking a bridesmaid to cover up her tattoos is akin to asking her to walk down the aisle as someone else.
In our opinion, if you have a bridesmaid and you are concerned about her tattoos – it is something worth having a conversation over. There may be a compromise you can come to with photos or maybe you could choose a dress that doesn’t showcase the tattoo at all. As someone with tattoos, it should be understood that there are certain situations and places where showing them off isn’t appreciated or appropriate. Ultimately it is important to remember that friendships are more important than appearances.
