A WOMAN has revealed how turning her birthmarks into pretty floral tattoos has helped boost her confidence.
Amanda Jean, who is from the US, took to TikTok and wrote, “I’m in the process of turning all my birthmarks on my arms and chest into small dainty floral tattoos.”
“I’m obsessed and can’t wait to do the rest.”
In a short video, she can be seen revealing a couple of her birthmarks, which have already been inked.
The mole forms the bud of the flower while petals are delicately tattooed around the outside to complete the image of a daisy.
Amanda shared how she got the idea from another social media user who turned her freckles into little stars.
The post received over 253,000 views, 18,000 likes and was inundated with comments.
“My mom is going to sue you for giving me this idea but I’m obsessed,” one joked.
A second agreed: “Oh my god I’m obsessed with this idea!!!”

A third added: “Wait. That’s really awesome.”
Another commented, “That’s the one tattoo that won’t age well because you’ll most likely need to have the moles removed…plus I want to get that done.”
Another wrote: “That restraint would probably help my confidence SO much considering how many moles there are on my body.”
In response, Amanda commented, “It has honestly helped me quite a bit, do it!!!
Another joked: “I would literally be a field of flowers,” to which Emily quipped: “That’s what I intend to do!!! Lol my other arm will be pretty full when it’s done.”
However, others warned that if one of the moles ever became cancerous, the idea could prove dangerous.
“I have sleeves and I panicked a while ago because I was wondering how to tell if my arm moles are turning into skin cancer,” warned one.
A second remarked: “Cute but now it’s harder to monitor for potential skin cancer which is super important!”
A third wrote: “This is super cute!!! Be careful! My tattoo artist wouldn’t tattoo any of my birthmarks because it’s dangerous!”
However, Amanda took a very different perspective, replying, “I think it’s easier because I can see if they’re growing out of the lines.”
“We didn’t do raised ones – just the little beauty marks.”
