Brides with Tattoos: 15 Brides Who Rocked Tattoos on Their Wedding Day

With tattoos simple and ornate, flat black and bursting with colour, we’ve pulled together a selection of just 15 brides with tattoos who rocked them on their wedding day. Each one proves that tattoos put on display for your wedding day can look phenomenal! In fact, often brides choose to make their tattoos a focal point of their bridal look.


1) This bride with an elegant script tattoo along her spine:

Back tattoos are very often partially (or even completely) covered up by your wedding dress, but you can really show off your tattoo with an alternative wedding dress such as a low-back or backless dress. On the other hand, there are also translucent “illusion” fabrics and lace appliqué designs that could still show off some of your tattoos. You may also want to consider keeping your hair in a pretty up do so that you don’t hide your tattoo.

Sometimes you want to make a tattoo into a focal point of your bridal look, as shown beautifully here with this bride who framed the rose between her shoulder blades with the fabric of her dress. The sleeveless, almost Greek-goddess-style design of this wedding dress also shows off the tattoos along her arms. This would also be a fantastic look for a bridesmaid!
