    Its Old And Faded Now...

    But when I was very young it was a bright red stain across my lips. When it was at it's worst, I was too young to be bothered by it, but it caused a lot of problems for my mother. My lips are probably plumper than average, and with the birthmark people often assumed my mouth was...

    Right Leg

    I was born with an identical birth mark as my mom. Her's is on her left leg, mine is on my right. same size, same spot, different legs. Our doctor finds that pretty awesome. I think it's stupid. I don't even get my own birthmark.

    Cafe Au Lait

    I have a large cafe au lait spot on the side and back of my right leg. It never bothered me as a child as it was lighter in color but as I grew older, the spot got bigger and darker. I haven't wore shorts or short skirts since I was 9 - it was just something I had to hide. I can...

    Harry Potter Funny

    I have a birthmark similar to the shape of Harry Potter's, the lightning shape,  but it's on my neck. No one ever tease me about my birthmark. I'm glad they respect that. The annoying thing is that they always touch it. Maybe they think it will glow or does something...

    I have many birthmarks all over my body,

    mainly on my arms and legs. The interesting thing is that the two biggest ones are shaped like two of the countries which my ancestors came from.

    It's shaped like a turtle.

    I think it actually means something because when I was younger people used to say I moved so slow. But now I love the Teenaged Mutant Ninja Turtles. By love I'm mean I've got the Halloween costume (wore that to school), a Turtle Shell bookbag (still wearing that to school(I'm in...

    I Hate My Birthmark. Does Anyone Else?

    I don't know if anyone else feels this way about their birthmark? I have a congenital melanocytic naevus in a fairly dark brown colour, about 5 square centimetres on my upper left arm. I have worn a plaster over it every day for over 4 years, and have a ridiculous tan line...

    It's oval shaped about an inch in length on my

    outer thigh. It is somewhat interesting to me because I have actually met others who have it in the same place (it's not in a very sexual spot or anything) and they looks exactly like mine. It has never caused me any harm and I hope to god it never does. I am not ashamed of it...

    and I have a really big birthmark,probably the size of a quarter, on my leg. It's a lot darker than my skin tone and is impossible to cover if I wear a bathing suit or shorts even some dresses end up showing it. Because of this I rarely wear shorts and if I do I end up getting...

    It'S On My Eye. =]

    It may not be a Birthmark at all, just a slight discoloration (that's apparent in African-American cultures, supposedly). But I still consider it a Birthmark. ^_^

    Cool

    I have always liked my birthmark, it reminds me of my ancestors. My background goes into three different Native American Tribes. My birthmark is on the top of my left forearm and it is in the shape of an Arrowhead.
