As a guy I can't relate to this whatsoever but I feel bad for you nontheless! FYL!
Since hers are pink cocoa butter, vitamin E and the like could really help! Mine are white (I got them when I was young from a medication that made me fat post-pneumonia. I dropped the weight instantly and the stretch marks stayed :( ) and rubbing vitamin E on them everyday for a month (so far) has actually helped them fade. Good luck op!
If this were true, pregnant women wouldn't complain about stretch marks as much. I used lotion before I got a big belly and after. Still got stretch marks. My sister in law has had three kids (one was breech and HUGE on her petit build) and got zero stretch marks. It all depends on what your skin is like. Time makes them fade and I heard tanning might help but you can't get rid of stretch marks once they're there.
Why exactly did you have to show everyone else? Showing your brother wasn't proof enough?
1) Other people in the room were curious about the 'tattoo' 2) Pulling your brother aside and lifting up your shirt as a woman is frowned upon 3) Hiding it from everybody but the brother would lead them to believe there really was a tattoo and she was hiding it from them ....and so on.
Why did you show everyone else? "Believe me or don't, I don't care. " That should've been your attitude
I don't know if it would be any better to have her mom ground her for the next three years because she thinks she got a tattoo. I had a crazy growth spurt when I was younger and have stretch marks. Luckily I have lots of other things to be self-conscious about so I forget about them a lot. I noticed some on my hips the other day, white, not pink though.
