My fiance has an important black tie work event this weekend. He's invited me to go. He stunned me last night when he asked if I would cover up my tattoos. I thought he was joking at first, but he says his co-workers may frown upon them. He says we have to uphold a certain image. This led to an argument. I told him that I won't cover my tats because they are a part of me and he should accept me for me. If he can't, we have a problem. He says he does accept me for who I am, but it's others who may have a problem. I told my sister about what he said and she thinks he has a point. Should I cover my tats or not? I don't think my fiance should care what others think. He is either proud to be with me or not.
