    Stretch marks should be filled in with ink. Get to a tatoo parlor stat.

    I have some on my love handles and on upper arm by the tricep.

    got them from when I used to be fat.

    not that big of a deal.

    There is a product here in New Zealand called Bio Oil.

    When my friend had his child his wife used it on her stretch marks and while it wasn't the magic bullet, she said it was great at lessening the obviousness of them.

    I think I might have just gotten my first stretch mark. After running I was doing sets of chin ups today. Following this I went into the bathroom to brush my teeth and noticed something that looked like a scratch on my pec right in my armpit area. When feeling it the skin seemed smooth but it looked a bit bloody like a decent scrape.

    Does this sound like a stretch mark? If so is there anything I can do about it? Will it get worse? Thanks. If its around I'll just look at it as my battle scar. It'll go well with my appendicitis scars. Haha.

    stretch marks don't look bloody, sounds to me like you cut yourself when you were running.

    Edit: or at least mine don't, but one of the other posters on this thread said his looked like purple lightning bolts.

    Once you get one it will continue to get worse.:)



    I'm covered with them, they don't look that bad once you get used to them.

    No blood you just tend to notice them appearing overtime.

    Question: Does guys like Poundstone, Misha have crazy stretch marks?

    If they don't, how the fuck don't they?

    Yah. I had my buddy look at it and he said it was a burst blood vessel. He said he gets them often in the same area. After further inspection this appears to be a pretty good explanation. This region of my arm/pec tends to be quite "veiny".

    I bet it has to do with skin type as well but I would imagine they have stretch marks

    It's related to skin type and genetics. It's like how some women get stretch marks from pregnancy but others don't.

    They fill in and get pale eventually. Or at least mine did.

    I've always wondered this. How old are you when you're freshman/sophmore/junior year ?
