    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. ^_^

    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...

    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...

    Hemangioma Wonderfulness

    I was born with a benign vascular tumor (Hemangioma,) on my left arm. It's easier to explain as a birthmark. It goes from my shoulder to my wrist and hurts whenever the weather is humid. (Weird, right? :) ) I have gotten bullied and discriminated against because of my "Skin...

    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...

    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.

    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.

    An Unusual One...

    I have a birthmark. It's an unusual one but then again most things about me are, so I guess it's to be expected. My birthmark is a pink one that spreads across my buttocks & thighs. Most of the time you wouldn't notice it if you saw it - you only really notice it if it gets hot...

    Bothers Me.

    I have a birthmark and it has always been a concern for me. It is a dark looking place and I used to cover it with make up. It is in a place that MOST pictures don't pick it up lol but it still bothers me.

    My Birthmark

    I was born with a little birth mark on my arm. My sister used to be so jealous because she didn't have one. She used to like to lift up my sleeve so she could look at it and touch it. It has faded now so you can only see it if you know where to look.

    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.
