Birthmarks can be in various shapes, flat or raised, and they can be brown, black, blue, pink, purple or tan. Approximately 10 percent of babies have a birthmark. Birthmarks are usually harmless, and many of them disappear on their own or shrink over time. Birthmarks can sometimes be associated with other health problems. The cause of most birthmarks is unknown. They cannot be prevented by anything done or not done during pregnancy. Usually, they are not caused by trauma to the skin during childbirth. There may be a genetic component to certain types, but it has not been identified yet.
Many people take pride in their birthmarks because they enhance their individuality, but some birthmarks can be bothersome or uncomfortable. They are especially dangerous if they grow over time, are found on people’s faces, or are raised, like strawberry hemangiomas. Some people don’t give a damn about their birthmarks or their placements, but it’s a real problem of self-esteem for others. However, with their creative tattoo designs, tattoo artists helped people hide their unattractive markings and regain some much-needed confidence, proving that our imperfections – whether embellished with coverup tattoos – are what makes us truly beautiful. Tattoo artists covered birthmarks and incorporated them into tattoo designs, whether a basketball, a flower, or a map of an imaginary world! There is no end to the imagination when covering up tattoo ideas.
