okay, hands up all the brides-to-be out there who’ve got a tattoo? In 2017, chances are that’s quite a few of you. Over the past decade there’s been a huge rise in tattoo culture, and the result is that more and more of us are sporting ink. Apparently almost one in four Australian women have at least one tattoo, so we’re definitely not talking about a subculture here, or a trend favoured exclusively by sailors, bikies and rock stars – tattoos are a mainstream style statement and they’re here to stay. If you’re a lass with tatts, and you’re a bride-to-be, the notion of reconciling your ink with your bridal look might seem like a challenge.

four weddings

“My Venezuelan boyfriend has a history of crashing weddings in his homeland. They’re massive, so there’s little chance of getting busted!” Thea, production manager “The nervous best man crashed to the ground in a dead faint as he made his speech – narrowly missing hitting his head on the window on the way down!” Ginny, editor “There was a fabulous peacock roaming the grounds. He totally stole the moment when he squawked at the top of his lungs right when the groom was told he could kiss the bride!” Emily, feature writer “The mother of the bride and the mother of the groom decided they danced better on tables! This was at an epic wedding that started at 4pm – and finished 32 hours later!” Alissa, art director…
