Today, my wife gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. She's perfect in every way, except for her birth mark. It's under the corner of her left eye and looks almost exactly like a prison teardrop tattoo. FML

Hey don't worry, she's your daughter and you should love her anyway and it'll just make for an interesting story.

That's not a big deal. You should just be happy that the baby is healthy!

You never know, she could have had a twin in the womb and killed, and then absorbed her. Therefore, the tear drop was meant to be.

I thought was the story was going to end with my best friend has the same mark. I'm glad it did not end like that.

#24: Birth marks aren't genetic. If a friend had the same one it would be an amazing coincidence, nothing more.

Hey see it from the positive side! She doesn't have to prove herself if she wants to join a gang.

Oh don't worry! Many birth marks fade within the first couple years.

Lol 133, thanks for letting us know you have a giant birthmark on your ass... :p

Don't call people idiots especially when you don't understand that there are various types of birthmarks, of which DO fade. IDIOT.

It's true. I used to have one on my lower back (my mom told me when I was a baby) but now I can barely see it.

Particularly when she shivs some other kid in daycare.

I have a birthmark under my left eye (much bigger than a tear drop though) & it's occasionally fun to come up with a wild story for it's origin. :P It's never affected my life in a negative way, aside from the occasional stare or impolite remark, but that never bothered me. My parents taught me at a young age to take it in stride, n to handle the situation with tact & consideration. Most people just don't know what it is! Congrats on your baby girl OP! :D

At least she doesn't have a birth defect!

Can you read the FML correctly 31? The FML is about a birth mark!

And she can always cover it with makeup with she's older. Not a big deal

And sometimes birthmarks fade or get smaller over time. Even if this one doesn't, she's still your baby and you love her, right?

I was gonna thumbs up, but its at 420 so...

Born to be wild? Just kidding You should love your baby no matter what.

I've never heard of a prison teardrop tattoo, so it can't be too bad. My cousin had a birthmark and was allowed to undergo (laser) surgery when she was 6. Of course, by that time her birthmark will stretch and fade out. It's not like she will be called an ex-con, since she's so young. OP is very lucky to have a healthy baby :)

Sounds like someone has never been locked up. The tear drop tattoo is pretty well known. This OP is so badass even his kid has a teardrop tattoo. Just incase you didn't know 39, you will never be that badass.

I just googled 'teardrop tattoo' to see which corner it was under...I'll be honest, the tattoos look like birth marks/beauty spots, not the other way around. They're tiny and in the same area that women have drawn on beauty spots for really not a big deal. She may even love it when she's older if she likes that kind of style.

A prison teardrop indicates you have murdered someone. OP, it's fine. Sometimes birthmarks fade or change. If its that bad, it can be removed.

I heard that on one side of your face its when you killed someone, and on the other side is when someone you know or close to you passed away.

If you can't be happy with the way your daughter is them that's your loss!

I'm sorry, but where does he say that he loves his daughter less? Let me give you a hint; no where. He's just worried about her growing up with that.

Seriously, #4 calm your shit. Op said his daughter is perfect in every way. But, who wants their kid to have what looks like a tattooed teardrop under their eye? That's something only criminals have.

I know a lot of ppl with tattoos who arent criminals tattoos are for anyone who wants one

#59 didn't say that only criminals get tattoos... she was talking specifically about the teardrop tattoo. Duh.

What makes a teardrop tattoo so special for criminals anyways and sorry i was tired so i read it as he meant for all tattoos at the time

110, it means you've killed someone.

Really? Why a tear drop though?

It's just a commonly accepted symbol, just like a red octagon means "stop." Google it if you're still not sure.

I would think it's more of a clown looking tattoo.

Unfortunately, it actually means that you've killed someone.

Hey it might suit her beautifully when she grows up. And she'll definitely be a special one

Awh but imperfections are what makes us unique.

You can get birth marks removed if it bothers you that much.

It's not his birthmark for it to bother. Like everyone else said, that shouldn't stop him from loving her especially because she did come out healthy. And OP, a birthmark is nothing compared to what she could have came out with.

Yes, but if that's his only complaint and he's worried it could cause her problems in life he can ask to get it removed. But I'm sure his child looks fine. But yeah you should love your child no matter what, at least he has one.
