White dress shirts to cover tattoos? - Page 2

post #16 of 17
Thread Starter 
Well, now I have a problem that opaque shirts won't help with. I got the inside of my left forearm done on Saturday, and gave the tattoo guy the go-ahead to go pretty close to my wrist. I wear my dress shirts a little long anyway, but when I move around too much, there's a risk of the tattoo showing when my cuff rides up.

Right now, it's not a huge issue, as I have gauze over it to keep it from seeping onto my dress shirt the first couple days, so it just looks like I tried to slit my wrist over the weekend. The partners know I started skating again, so they probably just think I'm dinged up.

The only thing I can think of, once it's past the gauze point, is to wear a small flesh-colored Ace bandage over the part of my wrist and forearm that could *possibly* show when my cuff rides up. I'm pretty sure I'll be going just as far down on my right arm shortly, so it'll just look like I've been catching myself on my wrists when I fall on my ass.

I'll also be investigating the shirt recommendations made above. I suspect that I will just avoid plain white shirts except in instances where I can reasonably leave my suit jacket or sport coat all day.

I too have the same problem. I like the under armor idea,anybody know how hot it is wearing that for 8 hours?
