In brief: Maybe

Spider angiomas across the upper chest and shoulders can be an indication of liver trouble, but their presence might also indicated nothing.
If you have see a sudden appearance of several angiomas and have never had them before, if you have a a sudden increase in the number of angiomas you have, or if you are covered with them, you might want to get you liver checked.
