My parents recently booked a cruise around the Caribbean for the entire family in December and now that bikini season is almost over, it's almost impossible to find what I'm looking for! I have many string bikinis but I have a small tattoo on the side of my ribs that my family has no idea about (and I'd like to keep it that way!) I've been trying to find a top that would cover it with thicker sides. Any suggestions are very much appreciated! Jenny J."
Jenny, we hate to break it to you, but someone from your family WILL see the tattoo at some point, no matter how hard you try to hide it. That being said, however, your best bet for temporary concealment is a tankini bikini, and, if you're truly scared of them seeing it, hedging your bets with Kat Von D Tattoo Concealer ($25). Good luck, and have fun on the cruise!
