What about a tattoo that was around some of the parts of it and incorporated the birthmark into the design. I have had the birthmark my whole life with no problems....is there still a large chance that it might develop a melanoma. If anything the birthmark has lightened and become less visible over time. Do you have any other suggestions as to what I can do to make this birthmark? It is very embarrassing for me and I am very tired of living with it. Would getting the tattoo over it affect it in any other way, other than masking the look of the nevus?
