A bride-to-be’s brother has always had a “wild” style, and while she doesn’t mind his extensive body art, she has asked for one particularly rude tattoo to be covered up on her big day

Ahead of her special day, a bride-to-be claims to have asked her brother to keep a particularly naughty tattoo covered up during the ceremony, and received a furious response.
According to this unnamed woman, her brother has always had a “pretty wild” look, often switching up his haircut or colour or getting a new piercing or tattoo.
He’s previously sported a mullet, buzzed cut, and a Mohawk, and she usually doesn’t mind his out there appearance at all, reasoning that “it’s his body” and therefore his choice.
However, she feels that one of his many tattoos may look a tad out of place at her picturesque beach wedding, and had hoped that he would keep it hidden, just for one day.

Taking to Reddit, the frustrated bride explained: “When he was in college, my brother drunkenly got a vagina tattooed on his chest. As it’s a beach wedding, the groomsmen will be wearing slightly open button-down shirts and so the tattoo will be visible.
“I asked if he’d be willing to cover for my wedding and he got immediately offended saying it’s his body, his choice. He’s now refusing to attend the wedding if he has to cover it.
“I get it’s his body but I really don’t want my guests to have to stare at a vagina during my wedding and I don’t want to look back at my wedding photos and see a vagina. While my family is used to it, my fiancé’s family would probably be taken aback if not offended by it. He called me a bridezilla and unreasonable”.
Many of her fellow Reddit users were quick to reassure the poster – who goes by the username u/anonymous_girl1345 – that she wasn’t being unreasonable at all, remarking that the brother really wasn’t acting in a very fair or mature manner.
One person wrote: “You don’t want him to get a cover-up or laser removal before your wedding, you just don’t want to have his chest vagina starring at the guests or be in your pictures, which is completely reasonable.
“Honestly, doing his sister this small favour shouldn’t be such a problem. He can consider it his wedding gift if it is such a big deal to him”.
Another said: “Not wanting any kind of pictures of genitals present at your wedding is completely normal.
“I bet he was eagerly waiting for an opportunity to show off his vagina and then call your friends and relatives boring prudes for thinking it’s totally tasteless, rude, and idiotic, which it damn well would be.
“He, of course, would be so cool and rebellious in his own mind”.
