According to science, birthmarks appear on our bodies due to an excess in the production of melanin in our bodies during our time in the womb.

It’s a process that you can learn more about in the video below:

However, some people believe that there is a lot more to them than that. They believe that birthmarks can be used to predict our luck, our life choices and our overall personalities.

So without further ado, this is what the position of your unique birthmark says about you:

1. Near your lips

If you happen to have a birthmark situated on your upper lip, you’re more likely than your peers to be straightforward and can sometimes be perceived as being blunt. You don’t believe in holding back when it comes to your personal opinions which can sometimes lead to tension between yourself and the people you associate with.

2. On your left cheek

Being born with a birthmark on your left cheek could be a troubling sign that you will experience financial difficulties later on in life. However, it also signifies that you have enough strength of character to be able to handle such a situation.

3. On your right cheek

People who sport a birthmark on their right cheek tend to be very passionate. They have drive and ambition in spades and are always looking to pursue brand new endeavors.
