Wow, I can't believe there are so many people with this problem. I am the only one I've ever seen with a Nevus of Ota. I am white, female 59 and have dealt with this since birth. It covers almost the entire right side of my face from temple to jaw, right eye and some scattered around my head-left temple also. I had brain cancer almost 3 years ago and the blue color was also in the tumors. I tried the Ruby laser treatment, but ended up with a lot of scarring. Has anyone tried tattooing with a normal skin tone color? I don't have any insurance, so will have to pay for it out of pocket. I'm tired of using so much makeup, it's getting very old, and the older I get, the worse all the makeup looks. I would love to hear from some of you that have tried tattoos, or other treatments that have worked well. Please email me at wendyhodge1@verizon.net. Thanks!
