So I'm just curious about whether or not anyone on here has any birthmarks they'd like to share. We've had threads about tattoos and piercings but none so far (that I've noticed) about those naturally occuring "tattoos" known as birthmarks.

I have one on my right hip that is in the outline of the continents Europe, Asia, and Australia. All connected too, well except for Australia, that one isn't connected but has "islands" leading down to it. Weird, I know, but completely true.

And one, I think it's a birthmark either that or it's a burn scar, shaped like one of Frankenstein's monster's scars on my right elbow.

My dad also said that I had a cross shaped one at on the top of my neck near the base of my head when I was a baby, but it went away.

I have three, actually ._. one is just a lovely splotch about the size of a half dollar on my calf. I had hoped it would get smaller as I grew, but not so! Many people ask me if its a bruise when they first meet me. I also has a wolf-head shaped one on my knee and a tiny one on my arm. Definately not something I enjo but I suppose I'm lucky not to have red ones on my face or anything!

I've noticed the white ones aren't as noticeable. But Strawberry marks are cool and interesting too. I wonder if the color of the birthmark has anything to do with the color skin a person has.

I have one on my right thigh that is in the shape of a heart, and becomes more noticeable when it gets wet. When I was little, you could only see it when I was in the bath, or swimming.

I only have one! Its just a small little brown 'splotch' on my left lower back. Basically right above my butt!

My Grandma and I have the same exact birthmark. We find it funny because I'm basically her twin. But y'know younger..

I have a brown splotch on my calf, when I was a baby my mom thought it was dirt and tried to wash it off :)

You are never better than anyone. Every rider has skills they need to improve. The only one you must compare yourself with, is you.

I have a little dolphin shaped looking think on my right lower back right above my hip. Two small mole type things on my rib cage on right and one left and a small brown stop above my left pinky toe.
