3.
A red mark located somewhere on a violin/violists neck area (Location varies) from excessive practicing.

Due to looking a lot like a hickey, they are usually referred to as the "Violin hickey", But in the medical world, it is referred to as "Fiddler's neck" Which is much tackier.

Violinists/Violists get these on the left side, so anyone claiming a hickey on the right side has a violin hickey is really a whore trying to cover up by looking cool.

Hickeys are most often located under the jaw, in the mid-neck area, on the collarbone, or near the front of the shoulder.

Some hickeys are caused by a reaction to the nickel in the metal holding the chin rest on, while others are caused by the constant movement of the instrument against the skin.

This red mark is often considered a "Badge of Honor" among musicians, although they are actually quite painful.
Guy 1: Oh man, is that a hickey? What've you been doing?

Guy 2: No, man. That's just my Violin Hickey.
