Tattoo's in your wedding photos?

Recommended Posts

I have a bit of a dilemma. One of my bridesmaids has a couple of tattoos on her shoulders and she just got one on her wrist and is talking about getting another tattoo. I don't have anything against tattoos, but I'm not sure I want all of the tattoos showing in the wedding pictures. How do you guys recommend I approach the situation?

Ah thats tough... is she a really close friendhuh.gif... does she need to be in the party? in my personal opinion... i think its kind of unique and if that is who she is than that is who she is... ALSO.. i have seen a bride who had a full sleeve of tattoos on one arm and u couldnt tell because most of the pictures were taken from the opposite angle...

She is a very close friend and I don't have anything against tattoos at all! I have a tattoo on my hip, and my FI has many tattoos, but all of ours (and everyone else in the wedding party) will have theirs covered. I thought about getting a dress that covered the shoulders, but I am having a beach wedding and I don't want them to be uncomfortable, you know? It's a tough one!

You could talk to her about it...she may be willing to cover them up for the wedding. But if not, then you'll have to live with it!! Like Jax said, maybe you can arrange to have her pose a certain way so they (or most of them!) cannot be seen!

I've thought about asking her to cover them, but she is very easily offended and I don't want to make her feel bad. It's not that I have anything against her tattoos. I just don't want them in the photos!

Agreed with the other girls... that could get a little sticky.

 

Is she the type of person that would get defensive or insulted? Or do you think she'd be ok with it?

 

Maybe you can even mention it to the photographer to try to catch her at certain angles that hide them?

Hmmmm, I might be in the minority here, but I don't really think there is anything you can do. I think that there are some things in our weddings that we just can't control. I wouldn't feel comfortable asking my friend to change/cover up something that is part of who they are.
