    A friend of mine has a blackish birthmark (nevus) on the back. He's been wondering what to do with it. The doctors say it isn't malignant or anything, so it won't cause a problem. However, it's somewhat big so when he's at the beach, etc. he gets a bit self-conscious.

    Should he:
    1. leave it alone
    2. cover it with a tattoo
    3. get elective surgical removal
    4. rub it with paint everyday
