          Thanks for the tip! I may try this out.

          I have a conservative family as well. Not so much my immediate family, but more my future in-laws that I'm concerned about.

          I have a pretty large cherry blossom tattoo on my hip/upper thigh, so it's not visible in my dress obviously, but I am considering this for our day trip to Xcaret where I'll be sporting a bikini.

              it's not water/sweat proof at all!!!

              I would really be careful with a white dress...think stage-type make up. thick so it can cover up and you have to do touch-ups through out the night.

                Kat Von D came out with a product to cover tattoos. In the photo shoot they did with her, they covered up every single one she had. Amazing! Check out her website or here..... http://http://www.se....tml?id=P231113

                  They sell this at Sephora and I had one of their makeup artists try it out on me. It doesn't really work that well. I have a big black tribal tattoo between my shoulder blades and up a little. Hate the darn thing now. I really wanna cover it up, but as a makeup artist myself, I knew that very few are non transferable or sweat proof. the only thing that MAY work is hiring someone who works with an airbrush machine. This is likely the only thing that won't sweat off or need touchups. I'm just trying to grow my hair long enough to cover it and wear my hear down.

                    The best one that I have found and I'm thinking of getting it for myself is Dermablend. It is sold in Ulta. I'm not sure how well it works in the heat but when I saw videos on youtube it really seems to work.

                      I had thought about Dermablend as well. Anyone use it before?
