If your didn't know, there's a lot of speculation out there about the meaning of birthmarks. The placement, the purpose, what they could be a sign of.

This is partially because spiritual schools of thought tend to step in when science finds something unexplainable, and dermatologists (although they know a lot) don't know what causes birthmarks.

Some spiritualists believe that birthmarks have a special meaning that's designated by the location of the mark on the body.

So without further ado, here's what your birthmark could mean, based on its placement.

Forehead

A birthmark on the right side of your forehead is a symbol of someone who is extremely intelligent, someone who is knowledgeable, and destined to stand out in their chosen field.

A birthmark on the left side of the forehead is a sign of someone who is spontaneous, who lives life to the fullest, and who may be a little extravagant with money... although extremely creative. This is probably because of the belief that the left side of the brain is the creative, free-flowing side.

Eye

A birthmark on the eye is the mark of a troublemaker. According to Face Reading Dictionary, (yep that's a thing) someone with a birthmark on the eyelid likes exploring, and their love of adventure can lead them to be influenced by some pretty bad people.

This is the mark of someone who is destined to have the kind of wisdom that comes from making terrible decisions.

Neck

Birthmarks that appear on the back of the neck are called stork bites, which is adorable, and the superstition behind these birthmarks is that while you will be very successful in life, your success may take you away from those you love.

Breast

A birthmark on the breast is a fantastic omen; if your birthmark is on or under your left breast, it's said to be a sign that you will be triumphant in work and in life, even if those triumphs come from hard work.

If you have a birthmark on or underneath your right breast, you have luck on your side- whatever you want will come to you fairly easily.

Shoulder Blades

A birthmark on the shoulder blades is a sign of someone with a deep calling. An unhappy or challenging childhood won't destroy this person's drive to achieve as he or she climbs the ladder to success. This person needs to be with someone who understands or even shares the same calling as they do, as they have a strong sense of purpose in their life.

Arms

For some inexplicable reason, birthmarks on the arms of men are believed to be a sign that the man enjoys staying at home, caring for children. For women, a birthmark on the arm is believed to be a sign of a woman who puts her career first.

I should mention that this isn't qualified as a good or a bad thing in my research, but it is definitely weird that they separated it by gender; an arm is an arm.

Stomach/Abdomen

In Iranian lore, it's believed that when a pregnant mother touches the same spot on her belly over and over again, the baby will be born with a birthmark in that same spot.

Others believe that having a birthmark on the abdomen is a sign of greed or gluttony.

Thighs

A birthmark on the thigh indicates someone who will carry the confidence of those who are favored in life. This birthmark is believed to be a sign of luck, and an omen of wealth and happiness throughout the person's life.

Legs

A birthmark on the legs is supposedly a sign of someone who will need to learn to stand firm on their own throughout life. These people are supposedly born with a belief that they are dependent on others and may have difficulty making decisions on their own.

Feet

A birthmark on the heel is a sign of a fighter... in a Real Housewives kind of way. This mark placement is supposedly a sign that you'll have a lot of fallouts with your friends and family. Sorry?

A birthmark on the right foot is a sign of a person who seeks out adventure through travel and exploring other cultures. The left foot birthmark reveals someone who leads with and values actions before words.
