The use of make-up will help by matching it to your skin tone.

Then from there paint on the guild symbol.

Hope this helped.
When in doubt, just take the next small step.
With that next step take a deep breath. It calms the mind.
When the mind is calm you realize the best is still yet to come.

I know some people who have also tried buying body tights and painting over that since they couldn't use make up but personally make up would probably look the best.

Use skin-tone makeup to cover it, and then paint over it. If you use alcohol-based makeup, then it won't run or smear throughout the day.
Planned Cosplays:
Mulan//blue outfit variant (Mulan)
Kid (Kaito Kid)
Blair (Soul Eater)
Kizuna (Pilot Candidate)

Part of why I will neveeeeeeer get a tattoo. As others have said though, makeup. Get a liquid foundation that matches your skin, let it dry, powder or conceal it as needed. Shouldn't be too too hard as long as it isn't dark dark.

Cosplay 1: Sailor Venus (Commissioner failed to make 4 month deadline)
Update: August 10th.... still nothing.

Reality: Recycled or no cosplay at all. Got to love commissioning! Thanks everyone!! Serious thanks to Dulcinea, who actually made the deadline for the accessories far in advance and of outstanding quality. Sucks they won't be used.

Yep what Naiagu said. That's what stage performers use when they have to cover their tattoos. (:
