Birthmarks can manifest in a number of forms. They are growths on the skin that a baby is either born with, or appear shortly after birth. They can appear as moles, pigmented stains, or lesions. They often disappear as the child grows, but some stay put for life. This is fairly common, and there are plenty of celebrities who are prime examples of that.
While we’re often made to feel ashamed of our differences, seeing public figures embrace their unique birthmarks reminds us that they’re really something to be celebrated. Click through this gallery to learn all about the different kinds of birthmarks, and see some of the celebrities who proudly display theirs.
