They may seem like Body art at one glance, but this is actually a rare medical condition called Blaschko’s Lines. Its name was derived from a famous German dermatologist who actually studied this disease. Ironically, these lines are lines of normal cell development in the skin and are not really visible. However when triggered by skin diseases, they become extremely obvious in the shape of an “S” in the chest or “V” over the back.

Factors linked to these abnormal urge are stressors such as family issues, parental neglect, pregnancy, poverty and disorganized family structure.
