Birthmark Superstitions

By July 2, 2003

Follow me on:

Pictured here is a photograph of my husband's butterfly birthmark. I recall clipping a piece from a women's magazine (probably "Woman's Day" or "Family Circle") in the 70s that I picked up at the checkout lane at the local grocery market. It was a cute poem that gave superstitious meanings for various locations of moles or birthmarks on the body. I actually framed it and hung it in my bathroom as a conversation piece. I don't remember whatever became of it.

I'm considering gathering some information about birthmarks and folklore to put together in a fun and interesting article sometime in the future. Meanwhile I hope you will tell about your birthmarks and also upload photos of your birthmarks.

I have yet to find someone else with a birthmark on their left hand in the same place.

This is weird because i have a red teardrop birthmark 45degrees below my left eye. Red teardrops sybolize that you’ve lost a lovedone. As a kid i had a reoccuring dream that my wife was killed in front of me. i was like 6 or 7 at the time, i obiously hadn’t lived that.

I have a birthmark or a scar that is the exact shape of a Bull’s head located on my left wrist. By the way I’m a Taurus. Wondering if it is a quinky-dink? I have always known that I’ve been blessed in many aspects of my life and most people that know me would say the same. Does this symbol on my wrist mean anything besides an interesting comment on your blog?

April 13, 2009 at 12:20 am

(69) Karina says:

I have an light oval shaped birthmark near the bridge of my nose, closer to my eyebrow. I learned today that the light/tan ones are called “Cafe au lait spots.”

My youngest daughter has an identical birthmark as my sister…same shape, same place on the back of their leg. She also has an inverted/symetrical one on her back. It’s beautifully unique… it’s the same thing on the left shoulder blade, but transposed as a white birthmark on the right shoulder blade.

My oldest daughter, mother and myself have the same mole on our left arm, two inches from the wrist.

I read today that birthmarks are a place where energy can focus in development, explaining the additional pigmentation in one particular area, and these areas are areas where we have strength. Something like that.

April 21, 2009 at 10:19 pm

(72) francisco juarez says:

At the age of 5 or 6 i realized something on my chest that wasn’t there beofre, it was a large diamond shaped scar looking thing on my chest, and after awhile I also noticed there was a number 8 inside of it, I had it since 1997 as far i can remember it, ever since i have hidden it from people, because what would they say if they saw a superman sybol with a number 8 inside/ well I don’t know what it is, i’m guessing its a birthmark, and my question is
Will it go away?

April 29, 2009 at 5:30 am
(73) ellen hauwert says:

I was born with a flaming red birthmark on the top of my right arm. Presumably being pulled out , leaving this mark .
Either kiddingly or seriously people ask me when unfortunately shown in summer with open arms: Having had a rough sex time last night? Or is that a kiss of LOVE.. It is a birthmark nothing to it.No cancer mark. Greetings, ellen h

May 1, 2009 at 9:57 pm
(74) Nicholas says:

I was born with a birtmark in the shape of a perfect oval on my right arm, a flame mark on my left temple and a another flame mark on my back and on my chest. I’ve read that when you die you are reincarnated, and when iyou are reincarnated the marks of the previous injuries that have cause your death in your past lives are healed over and become these birthmarks in your new life. Ppl that don’t have birthmarks died of natural causes in their past life. Now let’s look at me for example, I could have been shot in the arm, then hit in the head in my past life. And the mark on my chest and back line up like a sword

May 2, 2009 at 4:04 am

May 5, 2009 at 11:10 pm
(78) Kamilah says:

May 28, 2009 at 9:34 pm
(83) Lily says:

I have a vivid blue birth mark on the palm of my left hand just between my middle finger and ring finger. I also have another one on the inner side of my left elbow that is strawberry and in the shape of a fire ball shooting up my arm. Also another one on the back of my leg that is brown. I am not sure what shape it is because it is hard for me to see. I have just recently noticed a new blue mark on my right hand as well between my first finger and thumb. Noone else in my family has any birth marks so I guess I got them all. Except my little nephew who is less than a year old and he has a light brown birth mark on his left thigh exactly the same as my strawberry mark. I have often wondered if any of them mean anything.

May 31, 2009 at 12:14 am

(89) Luke says:

I have a weird birthmark on the left side of my neck. It almost looks like a scar; or my skin never quite finished growing over; or it has come to me that it looks a lot like a rope burn mark……almost like I was hanged!! Also interesting is that I have, since I could talk, had a stutter – something I have tried all thru my path to overcome….and have not succeeded YET!! I also them have loads of small ones scattered over my body. When I look in the mirror it looks like a galaxy, or a part of a galaxy.
Peace and Love to ALL

(102) Linda says:

For the first month that I was pregnant – i had no idea that was with child and drank like a rock star. I somehow feel that there might be some correlation to that alcohol consumption and the large brown birthmark or my newborn’s arm – almost as if it were some kind of birth defect. I am in no way criticizing birth marks, but rather, I am just feeling very guilty – that my drinking was a direct cause for this. Anyone?

I have another on the right side of my right arm shaped like…well it changes, yesterday it was shaped like Maine, and now it’s shaped like a genie’s bottle you know like from Aladdin? It’s not connected though there are like a few of them together that make up the different shapes, and I SWEAR it changes. Oh and it’s light brown.

Ariel: I have another one shaped like a bat above my right knee, and my initials spell out B.A.T weird right?

I have always had a small birthmark on my forehead all my life, but my son was born almost two years ago and he developed a pretty big birthmark that started at his thigh and moved all the way to his bum. He later got a birthmark that looks like a small round bruise at the bottom of his rib cage on his right side. He has had it for about 6 months now. The odd thing is I have recently had one pop up in the exact same spot. They are identical. Don’t know what it means.

I have a birthmark in the shape of a rabbit on my elbow. You can see its tail, legs, ears, and even its eye. It seriously looks exactly like a rabbit.

My mother was chased (and sometimes attacked) throughout her pregnancy with me by flocks of little birds whenever she was outside. When she was in labor with me, a blue and yellow bird perched on her window and would sing only when she had contractions. (As her pain became more intense, the bird would sing louder.) When I was born, I had a light tan birthmark on my face of a peacock, it started above my left eyebrow and extended down my left check. It faded when I turned 6 months. I now have two upside down hearts, one above my navel and the other on my right thigh. I am wondering what these marks mean, as I read thru the comments and so many people have animal shaped marks…

I have a couple of interesting ones: I have a set large freckles on my left arm that make a perfect Big Dipper from my elbow to my wrist. Secondly, I have a perfectly heart shaped, flat, light brown mole on the side of my right buttock. I also have a large pigmentation condition that runs from my right hand to the bottom of my ribcage. That one changes color with my body temperature; if I am cold it turns purple, and if I am hot it turns red.
I guess I just got the luck of the draw on that one.

(156) jynx11 says:

I have maybe four different birthmarks. One is located in the middle of left arm, between my elbow and wrist. It is shaped like a broken heart. Two more are located down by my genatials. Both are circles, but one it much darker and larger then the other one. The four one that I have is debatable. It is on my left shoulder and is sometimes there and other times not. It is just a like a mess of freckles but I know that it is not due to the fact that I only get freckles in the summer and they never stay past the fall. This mes comes and goes throughout the year. Can there be any messages that my birthmarks are trying to get through to me?

I’ve got a pale birthmark on the left side of my face– its shaped like a half-moon, I guess. it nearly curves into my eye, distorting it. i think it’s cool it’s supposed to have a meaning, rather than just being weird. what’s this about it having to do with your past life, exactly?

Perfectly center on my collar bone is a giant birthmark shaped like a full moon. I always thought it was beautiful and, when my parents asked if I wanted it removed (when I was younger) I refused. I am eighteen, now, and oftentimes add glitter or black-light ink to it when I go to nightclubs to really make it POP. It’s like having a wicked tattoo except its completely and utterly unique and “un-copy-able.” :D

(194) Dreamsayer says:

I have a symetrical four pointed star in the center of the back of my right hand in alignment with my center knuckle. The scar pulls out in all directions from the center like beams of light. So basically like looking at the North Star. As i got older, i started getting more strawberry in it, until a dark rift split down the middle, This was around a time when i started to not be scared of my procognitive memories & changed outcomes of predetermined events.. You cant see it now a days unless i have a tan. Green Lanterns: Jade had the star on her left. I’m pisces.. so starfish?? starchild? It couldnt have been a nail through only one hand at death, hint. or the old man put a cigarette out on me.

(208) Kris says:

I was born with a large dark brown raised birthmark on my right arm. Its a crescent moon or half moon and it almost looks like a cluster of moles. Im not sure what it means my mom used to tell me that my great grandmother told her she must’ve wanted a ciggarette while pregnant and didnt have one. For anyone out there who has a child with large ones that are visible i say talk to your child about them.. I always hated mine growing up but never could get it removed due to the depth it went into my skin. I still want to get it removed but im just sayin, talk to them because noone talked to me about it and i was always ashamed and embarrassed.

(209) Amy says:

I have a birthmark in the shape of the letter K on my right leg, position in the inner thigh (to the left of my knee)..

Funny enough, my dad’s name starts with K, my first serious relationship was with a guy whose name begins with K. I really like a certain name beginning with K and recently came to know a guy with the same name (who doesn’t know i exist by the way). I really feel like fate brought me to him. Coz he’s exactly the type of guy i like. He’s sweet, sexy, and he’s a musician.

Coincidence? maybe

Hey. Everybody has different birthmarks with different meanings. Well I was born with a birthmark below right eye and it’s close to my nose.

At times I have real vivid dreams of girls that look like me except in old times.
