Yasmin Vossoughian Tattoo
She has no tattoo but has a big purple birthmark on her entire left leg. She wrote an article about the birthmark and said she has learnt to accept herself.

She added that as a news anchor she fells the idea of getting scrutinized over her birthmark often felt too much and she chose to cover up with pants and tights.
“The idea of adding scrutiny over my birthmark has often felt too much. Imagine turning your TV on tomorrow morning and seeing me sitting there with a dress and a purple leg. I can’t help but wonder: ‘What would you think? What would the executives that pay my salary think? Would it distract even more from the incredibly important news we’re trying to deliver? Would your opinion of me change? Would you think I was ugly or pretty? Would you wonder what exactly happened to me?’
Those are the thoughts that run through my head everyday when I get dressed for work. Instead of dealing with all those unknowns, I have previously chosen to cover up with pants, tights, whatever. But as the days get longer and warmer, those decisions get harder. And guess what? It hurts.”
