What you are describing is completely normal and is where the foreskin was cut during the operation creating skin of a slightly darker color on the penis shaft.
Sorry to burst your bubble, but although most circumcisions are complication free, they are certainly not non-existent. The Canadian Pediatric Society says: "Circumcision may lead to complications, which range from minor to severe. They include easily controllable bleeding,84,85 amputation of the glans,84-86 acute renal failure,87 life-threatening sepsis and, rarely, death.84,85 The evidence of postoperative complications is unknown.84 The rates of complications reported in several large case series are low, from 0.2% to 0.6%.8 However, published rates range as widely as 0.06%88 to 55%.89 Williams and Kapila90 have suggested that a realistic rate is between 2% and 10%." A far cry from almost nonexistent.
If you do a search for circumcision complications on the Net, you will find many many references to what could happen. I will agree that the examples are usually the worst case scenarios, but complications have, do, and will happen. I am not trying to start a debate about the merits of circumcision, but just wanted to let the original poster know what is what.
I am circumcised, have no obvious complications, and my remaining inner foreskin reaches just past halfway down my average sized shaft. At the junction between the inner and outer skins, I have a noticeable jagged ring of dark scar tissue from the circumcision. I also have a straight 1 centimeter scar radiating from my meatus (pee hole). All 'normal'. The location of the scar varies by the method used to remove the skin, and preference of the doctor. When you are 18, you can do a search on the Net and find photos of other circumcised penises to note the scar ring. I'm not sure what you mean by "another ring" though.
If it is just a scar, there is probably nothing that can be done as it is "normal". Although laser (birthmark like) surgery may fade it a little, you are left with it. Some may call it a badge of honour, some may call it a disfigurement, to each their own.
