Weddings and tattoos pose a problem for some brides (and grooms) who prefer to cover them up for this solemn occasion. Other cultures encourage tattooing for religious reason or simply consider them a thing of beauty. Some people dislike them and associate them with people who live extreme lifestyles. For this reason some brides and grooms cover tattoos on their wedding day.
Brides can cover their tattoos with makeup or wear a dress that covers their tattoos. Yet other brides proudly show off their body art. There are also tattoo removing kits. But if you love your body art, temporary coverage might be your best bet. You can of course try to remove your tattoo completely using chemicals, skin grafts, or lasers. Some of these are painful choices so research it thoroughly before making a permanent decision.
So whether you are a bride and groom choosing to get a tattoo as a couple or trying to hide one you already have, there are a variety of ways and different price points to choose from.
