Wear a dress if it's appropriate or pants if you feel uncomfortable but I honestly wouldn't bother with hiding your tattoos. I came from a really conservative family and have zero tattoos but the last girl I dated got a new tattoo every couple months. At first I was nervous but then I realized I still really liked her and I grew to love her tattoos. So cover your tattoos if it makes you feel more comfortable but definetly don't if your doing it out of shame or out of fear of judgement from him. Let him no who you are. If he's a decent person he'll judge you by your character and who knows he may end up adoring them. Plus your legs look beautiful.
Why would you? Your tattoos are a part of you :) They are part of what makes you unique and they obviously have some meaning to you. I personally wouldn't cover them up. Who cares what other people think? You are not there to impress them. You are there to be with your boyfriend and have a good time :)
He likes you for you, so don't hide part of yourself :)
Oh wow. It would be a shame to cover those up but I see your point. I guess it depends on how fancy the place is but I say better safe than sorry in this situation. It would suck to have your evening ruined by some snobby asshole at the restaurant.
If he does not know about your tattoos, then I suggest wearing white hosiery so he can see, yet it will still be tasteful. He needs to know the truth in case he has an issue, but at least there won't be any drama. If he already knows, then, depending on the restaurant, consider wearing slacks and heels if the restaurant is more conservative (like a steakhouse n NYC).
If you don't want to you don't have to! All though here where I live, its colder so I just would throw on a pair of tights! Do whatever you're comfortable with, if you feel like you'd stand out and you don't want to then tights (;
Absolutely not. Truly fancy restaurants do call for a certain style in dressing, but nothing more. Other than covering yourself tastefully, you should not have to go beyond that because you think their clientele would be put off by tattoos. You are beautiful, and tattoos are not conflicting with "beauty" and "fancy."
If you're covering your legs from your boyfriend and he doesn't know about them, then that's crazy! He'll see them one day. If you're covering them for the restaurant I don't think thats necessary, just wear whatever is appropriate to that particular restaurant, but don't choose an outfit based on wanting to cover them up. Your tattoos are a part of you, don't be ashamed or feel the need to cover them up for society or other people. They look awesome by the way.
Damn those are hot. Why are you covering them? Because of him or because of the environment you are going to be in? If you're worried about the restaurant I'd say you are fine to not cover them as long as there is nothing offensive or inappropriate on your tattoos. If you are super worried, bring a pair of thick tights and put them in your purse and if they tell you that you can't come in because of your tattoos, just put on your tights :)
