There’s no denying that birthmarks make people self conscious. However, with their designs, these tattooists helped people cover their birthmarks and to regain some much needed self-confidence, showing that imperfections - tattoos or not - are what make us beautiful.

Yet the tattooists did not only cover the birthmarks - they worked to incorporate them as a living part of the tattoo; whether it be a basketball, part of a flower, or a map of an imaginary world!

OMG that's me and my new Tattoo! And you are absolutely right, Jess Hannigan of @littlemissjesstattoos has helped liberate me from a lifetime of self consciousness. She is not only a true artist but a beautiful soul and I highly recommend her to anyone with a birthmark or scar that holds them back from being the freeist and brightest version of themselves that they can be! Thank you Jess and well done boredpanda for an article which will help others like me find a solution.

My niece has exactly this type of birthmark. Though I am certain she is not kin for a tattoo to hide it.
