A local makeup service has got you covered. Literally.

Philadelphian Dana Persia had been a makeup artist for years when she changed her focus to bridal, and launched Beautiful Brides Philly at the beginning of 2011. Not only can she do both your wedding-day hair and makeup (she travels and brings the salon to you—including trial runs); she specializes in covering up tattoos, scars, or anything else you’d rather not see—on you or on your ’maids—in the pictures you’ll be looking at for the rest of your life.

Using a silicone-based waterproof makeup, she’ll get the color just right, then layer it using a self- perfected airbrush technique. Best part: Depending on the size of your tattoo, you’ll only need to add 20 minutes or so to your get-ready schedule on the day you say “I do.” Prices upon request.
