Should I tell my Grandma I have 3 tattoos, before we go on vacation?

Notes:
Beach vacation--she will have to see them!
Somewhat conservative--but she's also an artist
I'm an artist who had some wild hairstyles over the years/fashion looks
I'm not sure if this will be a good surprise or bad one?
Haven't seen her in 3 years!
The tattoos are of flowers (garter tattoo), a seashell (collar bone) and another has flowers with a butterfly (in honor of my mom) <3 (but they are medium to large tattoos) NO masculine or dark imagery or inappropriate stuff :)

You guys and gals are not making this easy lol! The majority of females wish for me to tell her! The majority of males want me to be mysterious and sneaky! Though... I'm so confused. 😢

  • By my experience yes. My sister had his hair blue and when my grandmother see ut she pratically faint. So I think it's better to prepare her before

  • Why tell her before she sees them? Why get in trouble for the same thing, twice?
    They seem like average, normal tattoos, and nothing that crazy, like in your 'private places'.
    Probably not going to be a big issue. . .

    • My friend is black and I can barely see the one on her wrist... I understand how you feel... I'm kinda the opposite... SUPER PALE... so there is no way she won't see these... I'm not even tan, so I can't hide them at all :(

  • She'll find out soon enough.

  • Let's see here...
    • She's an artist
    • You don't see her very often at all (you haven't seen her in 3 years)

    Going off those two points alone, I'm gna make a strong guess that "somewhat conservative" might be totally, absolutely, astonishingly wrong, and that yr grandmother might actually one day tell you stories that would make you blush.

    In fact, whatever rebel-girl qualities you have -- that's probably where you got them.

  • Why, if she is an artist, she is open minded. And she will see them anyway. You can always warn her when you change to bikini with some joking phrase like "First sunbath for my tattoos this year" or something like that. :-)
