Long sleaves and a high neckline - this is what many tattooed brides are looking for. Normally proud of their beautiful art work, as brides they want to hide it, before walking down the aisle. Here strong willed and stylish women tend to bow for the common consensus idea of how a bride looks. And a bride does not have visible tattoos!!!!
We are here to end this narrow minded idea of the bridal look, and give you some inspiration on, how you can bring together your tattoos and your inner bride.
Tattoos can be both romantic, feminine and very bridal like. If styled in the right way, your tattoos can be the foundation of you whole bridal look instead of the liability you would like to hide.
1) First of all find a dress that compliments your tattoos. They are there, so they need to be incorporated into the look. Does this mean that you are more bound than a non tattooed bride? Both yes and no. As to the style of the dress you are not, but some dresses might look strange or incomplete on you if only half a tattoo is showing.
One way to solve this problem is by laces. By wearing a laced dress you can both show off and cover your amazing body art work.
Another excellent wedding dress solution is the bare dress. By this I mean a dress that is strategically bare, in order to probably show off the tattoos.
2) Our second good advice is to coordinator your accessories with your tattoo. Whether it is the colors or the style of tattoo, accessories is a good way to connect the bridal look with the tattoo. You will find that a lot of jewelry often is a bad idea!
3) The third and final tip has to do with contrasts. The pureness of the white dress and the rawness of the tattoos is an example of how opposites can compliment each other perfect. If you play with the given contrasts you will see, that instead of creating a messy and devided look, they will bring out the best of the two worlds and combined them in one amazing bridal look!
In the end the essence is that it can be more difficult to create the perfect bridal look, when you are tattooed, but if you remember to use and show of your art work, then you are already one step ahead of the untattooed brides when it comes to the unique and personal bridal style!
