My apologies I thought I added pictures. I have about 5-6 and I noticed them three weeks ago. At first I thought they were razor bumps or ingrown hairs; however, after giving it a closer look it does not appear to be from ingrown hairs. I have no pain nor do I have itching. I am 37 y/o. Attached are pictures.

From the pictures, the black spots could be one of two things - they could be angiokeratomas. These are benign overgrowth of surface blood vessels. They may bleed when scratched or touched. in many cases, they clear up spontaneously but may need to be incised if they bleed.
The black spots may also be due to melanomas. These are malignant cancers and need to be treated as early as possible.
Your doctor will need to do a biopsy of the growth for an accurate diagnosis

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
