More traditional garments leave very little skin in sight, which can be a problem for tattooed grooms. Those who love the drawings usually see them as part of their own identity and covering them completely is unthinkable on one of the most important days of life for two, when they will climb the altar to declare short sentences of love in their vows. The arts engraved on the body are a way to express oneself and communicate to the world one’s points of view, values, hobbies, loves. They are an extension of the groom’s thoughts, who uses the outlines to bring out what he believes in.

Therefore, what moment would be more appropriate to add as much meaning to the look as the marriage itself? Knowing this, besides hairstyles, many bride and groom put as research object in the preparations the ways to highlight their tattoos. Being such symbolic elements, some couples use the visual identity of the designs on their wedding invitations. It is expected, therefore, that they are on display.

Touch-up with the tattooist

It’s normal for designs to fade over the years. Because of this, first of all, visit your tattooist or tattooist to highlight the colors of the oldest tattoosmaking whatever repairs are necessary. It is recommended to do this weeks before the big day, so that the tattoo is already properly healed and the region no longer presents swelling.

Skin Care

The more hydrated and protected the skin is, the more vibrant and clear the tattoo is. So use moisturizers, drink plenty of water and pass sunscreen over your body. If you find it necessary, take advantage of the care with the arts to go to a dermatologist to ask for recommendations of products and treatments that make the skin more luxurious. Qhile the healthier she is, including the un-tattooed parts, the greater the visual impact on the altar and photos. Context is important for understanding the contours.

Choose light clothes

A nice white shirt will bring out the tattoos. The color will make a beautiful contrast with the various shades and nuances from the palette printed on the skin. Pastel colors can also marry well to the proposal. Dark shirts are not recommended because they will not have this contrasting effect and will not give the right emphasis to the designs.

Accessories that enhance

Tattoos alone give a more modern and stylized appearance to the groom’s figure. One can take advantage of this by the increase of male accessories such as bracelet, suspender and hat. The latter, depending on the model chosen, can add a vintage tone to the celebration.

Play with your sleeves

Tattooed bride and groom stay a charm with the sleeves rolled up. A shirt with the sleeve carefully folded, leaving the forearm bareis a good proposal to reveal the markings. The short-sleeved shirts also offer a possibility to leave a larger area of the arm out, deserving to receive a vote of confidence in the races for the choice of costume.

O suit in this case, and can be dismissed from the look without demerit of the formal look, which gains more depleted air.

Tie? No, thanks.

If the chest and neck regions have been tattooed, try wear the rest of the outfit without a tie, with the shirt slightly open. That will leave the tattoos visible and it’ll produce a more striking and interesting visual effect.

This proposal leaves the style more informal, which in no way is a problem for unions with a lighter footprint and less traditional, such as those performed in the open air, especially on the beach and with boho chic inspiration. It will be an element seen as complementary to simple wedding decoration.

Other options

Morning and evening weddings make the dream of many bride and groom of marrying in Bermuda a reality more viable. The sunny, free and cool climate of this type of celebration, usually held in the open sky, matches the short piece. The shorts should have a social style, which makes a very interesting combination with suspenders, short-sleeved shirt and butterfly tie.

Although less usual, there are transparent shirts on the market that let the skin underneath show. This is a much bolder option, in the style of what singer Harry Styles has already used on the red carpet. In this case, the pieces should have more neutral tones, such as white, black and gray, to give sobriety as opposed to false nudity.

Being a groom an appreciator of art to the point of printing some on his own skin, he understands the impact that colors and shapes add both to the wedding decoration and the photos of the couple at the altar. Therefore, it is of utmost importance that he values and highlights his tattoos in the celebration. They will help you to give a personal and unique touch to a traditional moment, but that can (and should) print the couples’ assent and go through changes. Have fun and feel comfortable in your own skin, which may even the wedding cake bridegroom get his tattoos too!
