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.
