His mom/ my tattoos /Piercing

I’m 25 years old, I have tattoos & piercings and my bf mom is old school, I met her three times now. We’re 8 months in and he just told me whenever I’m around his family to cover all of that up

I have one sleeve and that’s all my tattoos right there, basically he’s asking me to constantly wear a sweater or long sleeves whenever I’m with them.

I have my septum which I always keep inside. So that one isn’t a problem

I thought okay the first time out of respect I’ll cover them but now he’s telling me all the time??

He’s 27, I just don’t like how I have to wear stuff that covers them up

What do you ladies think???

Why would you do?

Have you been in my position??
