    My thought is "...get better ones tonight". And don't jump to a conclusion- does the spot wash off? Many times substrate (or pigment from) gets stuck under scutes.

    Much better photo, tks, but sorry, I still cannot tell what that is. From here it looks like he got a minor (shallow) cut that got caked (embedded) with dirt or substrate.

    I don't see any redness- it doesn't look inflamed or infected. Are you sure he didn't try to get a tattoo & then changed his mind?
