So I have a decent size birthmark that looks like it could be a huge rash or bruise around my right elbow. Even when my arm is down at my side, it's still visible from behind. I usually don't think about it, but can't help but wonder what people really think of it. I know people look at it. Not necessarily stare at it, but I know they see it for sure, it's very visible and kinda hard to miss. Not very many people ask about it, but when they do, they're usually a little nervous asking me and it's always along the lines of "What happened to your arm?" or "What's wrong with your arm?"
What do you think? What's your honest initial reaction to seeing it? Is it ugly and unattractive? Is it a turn off?
And yes it is a birthmark, I think it's called port-wine stains. has to do with the blood vessels in the effected area and usually appears in shades of purple and red in blotchy patterns.

A bit weird looking yes but I don't think that will keep girls away. Once she knows you than I doubt she will pay your birth mark any attention.1
