    The elbow is probably a strong competitor for the title of the Most Irrelevant Part of the Body Award, closely followed by the middle toe.

    Right, ok, that's pretty normal. You shouldn't feel self conscious about it!

    What's so normal about having your elbows turn black when they were light mocha to begin with? Is it dead skin build up?

    LOL Do you lean your elbows on tables a lot? I had this problem when I was younger, at school, when I kept leaning my elbows on the desk. I'm a light olive skin tone and my elbows turned brown, no longer matching the rest of my arm. They're back to normal now, so stop leaning!
