Birthmarks by FurtiveLungs Birthmarks by FurtiveLungs
Birthmarks are called voglie in Italian, antojos in Spanish, and wiham in Arabic; all of which translate to "wishes" because, according to folklore, they are caused by unsatisfied wishes of the mother during pregnancy.

Love the lines and curves of the female body. Great composition and a perfect birthmark on a remarkable body.

i think the picture would have worked out better when just the welving of breasts were shown. not that i'm a perv or something, but now you're body (which is beautiful) seems a bit disturbed..
