Though Jenner, 19, has had the mark since a childhood game of hide-and-seek went awry, not all fans have noticed its existence. One such follower on Twitter saw it for the first time in a picture of the Kylie Cosmetics founder from New York Fashion Week, and tweeted at Jenner to make sure she was all right.

“@KylieJenner Kylie What happened to your leg?It worries me, Take care and i hope youre well! XOXO 😍😘❤,” the fan wrote on September 11.

Jenner replied, “I’ve had it since I was 3 it’s in all my pics! I could try&do treatments to remove but i like it I think it makes me [me].”

This isn’t the first time the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star has shared her love for the mark via social media. She posted a close-up image of it while getting her makeup done on a trip to Miami in December 2015. “I love my scar,” she declared at the time.

Though it now has a place in her heart, the story behind it is fairly graphic. “My sister and I were playing hide-and-seek and I hid inside this really tall enclosed gate,” she said in a 2011 interview. “After a while when my sister didn’t find me I had to climb up on this sharp pole sticking out from the gate. I slipped and the pole went into my leg. I tried pulling away to get the pole out but it just tore through my whole leg. It’s smaller now though because I grew!”
