    I hate to say it, but this is sort of a trick question. It's different for every person, sometimes extremely different. It would be more useful to describe them in terms of relative densities. The tip of your finger will have the highest density followed by your lip, palm, nose, forehead, cheek and lastly shoulder. But, again this may vary from person to person.
