I'm searching for a word describing the sound of blood drops falling on someone's shoulder. I found some describing the sound of liquids hitting a surface, such as tap, splat, and tuck. I was going for splat but can you give me some other suggestions.
I would be surprised if a single blood drop made any audible sound hitting something as soft and yielding as human skin, the gentlest of "ticks" on a taut section of fresh perhaps. "Splat" suggests the sound a bucket of blood makes hitting the wall or floor. Repeated drops on the same area, if the person is very still might "plop" as blood falls into pooled blood already lost.
