hi welcome,
the black circle of thighs due to bruise only.due to the rupture of subcutaneous vessels blood will come outside and settle beneath the skin.
if it occur without any history of trauma , it may be due to some circulatory system defect or some rheumatoid effect or may be increased pressure inside the vessels
thanking you
