Tattoos that Transform Birthmarks into Art

Birthmarks are a common characteristic of our skin, but they’re hardly consistent in how they look. Some are small and can be easily concealed while others are more prominently displayed. Because of this irregularity, it can cause a person to feel self conscious about their appearance. The trend of birthmark tattoos have become an unlikely way for people to have some fun—or completely cover up—their blemish.

These type of cover ups aren’t the first time we’ve seen people use tattoos to reclaim certain characteristics of their body. Artist David Allen regularly conceals the scars of breast cancer survivors by inking gorgeous designs across their chests.

Check out some of the best birthmark tattoos, below. Would you ever get one?
