Tattoo's on your bridesmaids... And your Groom!!
Ok, I dont want to offend anyone (not the purpose of this at all!!) but I am having a nightmare with my wedding party (Groom included) and tattoos.
I have none and I am not the biggest fan (personal taste) but 3 of my bridesmaids have tattoos and also my H2B. H2B has a giant tattoo on his bicep which no matter what shirt we get him to try on, it still so obvious "glowing" through the fabric. Normally I dont notice it but even his mum is now in panic about how we might make it a little less obvious. It really is enormous and was something his delightful ex girlfriend got him to have done. Can anyone recommend somewhere I can buy a shirt that might give a good coverage? Bearing in mind our wedding is in July and will therefore be hot... Or have any of you had the same issue and found a way to cover it up a bit? Obviously make up wont work as it will get all over his white shirt. I might sound a cow but our lovely little country fete vintage wedding theme doesnt really suit the enormous bright blue tattoo.
Also, bridesmaids... one of them has a neat little black aztex sun on the nape of her neck (her own mother despaired when this was on show at her wedding 5 years ago... so its not just me at least...) anyway, this can be covered by the hair style they are having on the day, not an issue. SIL2B has a rather large tatoo on the bottom of her back, which if we get a dress that is lined it wont show through, although we are having pastel coloured dresses so it has so far been hard to find one as her tattoo is quite dark and also large. Then there is the 3rd of the bridesmaids who has tattoos. I think she has maybe 5, but except for one on her shoulder the others are all in areas that will be well covered and they are quite small and dont show... BUT I saw her yesterday and she proudly showed me her new tattoo... a hot pink lego brick on the top of her foot!! Her new boyfriend has had a matching blue one on his foot also. Its pretty big to be honest and its literally hot pink!! I didnt even know that you could get a tattoo in this colour?! Yes its her body and none of my business etc etc and I dont want to sound like a prude or a cow (I am just scared of needles so I dont even have my ears pierced let alone be able to sit through a tattoo being done!) but can I ask her to cover it on the day? And if so, is there any sort of special make up that I can get? What would you do? Please dont think I am being a cow, its just, well, its bright pink and very obvious! I dont want to upset her, or even worse fall out but the other bridesmaids (including one with a tattoo herself) agree that as it is in such an obvious place she should cover it up.
