Showing your Tattoos on your Wedding Day

Whether or not to show your tattoos on your wedding day is a personal choice that depends on your individual preferences and values. You got the tattoo for a reason, am I right? Some people choose to showcase their tattoos as a form of self-expression and as a way to celebrate their body art. Others may prefer to cover their tattoos if they don't want them to be a distraction or if they feel they clash with the formal or traditional aesthetic of a wedding. I personally enjoy seeing the combination of bold tattoos with elegant detailing.

If you do decide to show your tattoos on your wedding day, you may want to consider the following:

Choosing the right outfit: Depending on the location and formality of your wedding, you may want to choose an outfit that showcases your tattoos in a way that complements your overall look. For example, a sleeveless or backless dress can highlight tattoos on your arms or back, while a more subtle design can draw attention to smaller tattoos.

Considering your audience: If you have family members or guests who may not be comfortable with tattoos, you may want to consider covering up or toning down your tattoos to avoid any potential discomfort or conflicts. Kat Von D makes a great concealer. Above all, your comfort is what is most important. If you are feeling extra saucy, how about having a tattoo artist at your reception?

Feeling confident: Ultimately, the most important factor is how you feel about your tattoos. If you feel proud and confident showing them off on your wedding day, then go for it! Your wedding day is all about celebrating your individuality and what makes you unique. Here are a few examples where the tattoo totally completed the look!

Remember, there is no right or wrong answer when it comes to showing your tattoos on your wedding day. It's your special day, and you should feel comfortable and confident in your own skin and with what is on it.
