She somehow managed to keep it a secret for years.

An oblivious father got the shock of his life when he saw that his daughter had kept a sleeve of tattoos secret for several years.

Amy Davidson was shopping for her wedding dress with her father when she realised that she had no choice but to reveal her secret tattoos.

The 28-year-old from England has a colourful sleeve running from her shoulder right down onto her hand and somehow managed to keep it a secret from her father for years.

However, when he picked out two sleeveless dresses for her upcoming wedding, she knew she had to tell him.

Amy was getting advice from Princess Diana’s wedding dress designer David Emanuel for an episode of Say Yes To The Dress when she admitted that her dad was unaware of the tattoo.

“I need to cover my arms as I have this and he doesn’t know,” she said to David in the fitting room.

“I feel really nervous like  I am going to cry, my dad doesn’t like tattoos at all. He is going to go mad.”

Safe to say, Amy’s dad was in major shock when he saw the multicolour designs covering her arm.

“I don’t know how you make a wedding dress look nice with that arm,” he said when he saw the tattoo, insisting she tries a dress with sleeves.

“She shouldn’t have a full sleeve like that. Appalling. It will ruin any dress.”

David suggested she tried a long sleeve dress with a white sleeve underneath, which concealed her tattoo.

“I can imagine walking down the aisle with Amy in this dress. It is just how I imagined her to look,” her clearly relieved father said.

The episode will be broadcast on TLC on 12 August at 9pm.
