I have to cover my Tats!!!

Recommended Posts

I'm a makeup artist with a tattoo on my back and I'm struggling with the same issue. NOTHING works to cover tattoos. Finding a makeup artist who has experience with an airbrush machine is the way to go if it's possible. Everything is a a thick, cream base that will surely NOT hold up in hot weather. Kat Von D's concealer does NOT work. Trust me. Dermablend could possibly work, but you have to have someone with skills to apply it. It's a layered process that really takes a perfect touch. Also, shaving the area you're trying to cover is huge because otherwise the makeup lays in the baby hairs and the finish won't look as good.


As far as covering them up, I love my tattoos, but they're not something I want to show in wedding photos. I'm considering wearing my hair down to camoflauge this one on my back.


Permanant removal is extremely time consuming and isn't a sure thing. Pastel colors are extremely hard to remove and yellow and blue is almost impossible. Believe it or not, black is the easiest to remove. The lazer goes for dark colors first. You cannot tan for a month before or afterwards as it can cause mal-pigmentation of the skin.


Ugh. My search continues as well. I will keep you posted if I find a fool proof method.

this is a subject that has been discussed many times before, and the best option ive ever heard is why dont you ask your photographer to blend it away with photoshop? also there is the option of posing in a way that will not show off that arm... ??


im going to close this thread since its subject has already been brought up many times before. lets not forget the search function! thanks!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
