    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. ^_^

    On the side of my left eye about the size of a

    guitar pick. when people notice it for the first time they get alarmed and ask me if i got punched in the eye, or asked me if i banged my head. I get very embarrassed by this. People think out loud. they just can't refrain from asking questions about it? can someone help me?

    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.

    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.
