I have NO idea where to start looking with this. :D) \
Let's just say character A is slightly crazy, and thinks it'd be an amazing idea to impale her hands on nails, right through the palm! Religious symbolism and all that jazz.
What sort of damage would occur to her hands? This is a 'futuristic' setting, and while nails are an anachronism, I can fudge material so there aren't any horrible diseases and what not. I'm looking at what would occur to her hands specifically.
She's probably not going to be taking them out, if that matters. [I assume it would.]
