Skin tags may be either smooth or irregular. Their colors may match your flesh tone, or sometimes have a more deep pigmentation, similar to that of a mole. They can either be slightly raised above the skin, or have a stalk (a peduncle) and hang down slightly.

Common locations for skin tags include the neck, under the arms, underneath breasts, around the groin, or on the inside of the upper thigh area; however, they can occur just about anywhere.
