I have some very large and obvious tattoos.   should I cover them up for my Temari ( 4th outfit) and my sailor temari cosplays or let them show?

The only ones they would show for would be my Temari from Naruto in her 4th outfit and sailor temari. ( sailor scouts from Sailor Moon combined with Temari from Naruto. )

Those are wicked. Is that the Grimm version of Cheshire Cat? Awesome.

Anywho, it's honestly up to you. Don't let us be the deciding factor of your personal things. If you want accuracy or something and it's that big if a deal then sure cover them all you like. If you don't care, then don't.

It's a Cheshire cat from American McGee's Alice except it's blue.

I'm torn on the decision.   I'm lazy and have sensitive skin but I also like to be accurate.

I wouldn't worry about it. I have a few tattoos that I wont be covering up. One of which covers up my whole back. I just figure I can edit them out of pictures if I really need to.

I'm a tattoo artist so the amount of tattoos on my body I personally find distracting. I'll probably be covering a majority of mine for costumes. That's my personal choice though. I think it's just a choice of if it bothers you or not.

I am getting my first one this weekend! I dont intend to cover it up. (however it wont be all that visible / obvious even in my Ariel because the hair will cover it.) But why worry about it? I think it adds individuality to your cosplay.

I have a chest piece that reads 'live love die' and never have covered it up and still get really amazing feedback on my cosplays(:

It's your art, let it show! you can still have an amazing cosplay
