Birthmarks come in all shapes and sizes and can be anywhere on the body. Unfortunately, they’re not something we have any control over. Either you’re born with one or you’re not and what you get is what you get. With that said, it’s very common for a person to be self conscious about their birthmark. Nonetheless, people have gotten creative and covering up their birthmarks with clever designs. Some birthmarks are completely covered while others are simply incorporated into the tattoo. Take a look at some of the unique designs below.For example, this birthmark was the perfect base for Mr. Potato Head!
The birthmark actually makes the perfect background for this type of image.
Although it’s not an actual tattoo since he drew it with a pen, the concept is still really cool!

Sometimes you just gotta go big or go home.
But that doesn’t mean the job can’t be accomplished! You just need the right subject, like this Japanese styled koi fish.
This watercolor rose did the perfect job.
The use of this birthmark as a part of this cover art is just brilliant.
