Whether because of societal or familial pressures or because they want to look a bit more elegant, some women decide to try to conceal tattoos on their wedding day. Doing so can be difficult, especially for large or dark tattoos. For some women, the best solution may be hiring a professional who has access to heavy duty makeup and knows how to use it.
However, if you want to try covering it on your own, here are a few of the top-rated products for covering tattoos that are currently on the market and that you can still try for free or for a relatively low price. If you have a very large tattoo that you want to cover, you will definitely want to try before you buy enough because tattoo concealers tend to be pricey.
Kat Von D Tattoo Concealer
Kat Von D tattoo makeup is probably the best known name in tattoo concealer products. It is widely available from several major retailers. While it is pricey, you can sample it to find the right shade and make sure it will work by visiting your local Sephora store.
Ben Nye Tattoo Cover
Ben Nye Tattoo Cover was designed for use by theater makeup professionals to cover tattoos or dark blemishes on stage actors. Try it for just $9 from the Stage and Theater Makeup store and see how it works for you before buying enough to cover a whole tattoo.
Make Up For Ever
Make Up For Ever is available in a ton of shades, so you should be able to easily find one to match your skin tone. If necessary, you can also blend 2 shades to achieve the perfect match. Available from Sephora, you can sample this product in-store before you buy.
Tatjacket Premium Tattoo Concealer
Tatjacket Tattoo Concealer is a bit pricier to try than some of its counterparts, but not outrageous. For around $25 on Amazon (including shipping), you can see if Tatjacket is the right product for you. Reviews indicate that it works well, but everyone is different, so you may wish to try some others before shelling out the cash for this one. If it works as well as it claims to, however, it will be well worth the money.
CoverMark Tattoo Cover Kit
CoverMark offers a full tattoo cover kit for under $40, plus the option to sample different foundation shades for only $10. The kit comes with the following for easy application:
- Hydrating lotion
- Finishing powder
- Two shades of foundation

The two shades of foundation make it easier to find the perfect match for your skin tone, and the kit also comes with detailed instructions to help you get the best results.
