"Wah!! I got a boo-boo!"
This is what happens when you pinch your hand cutting copper tubing. Mind you, it doesn't look as bad as it did when it was gushing blood for half an hour, but it hurt plenty and embarrassed the hell out of me for making such a rookie move. Took a small brush and peroxide to it to clean it out then added neosporin and a bandage later on. Why I didn't go for my camera when I did it is beyond me. Oh yeah, the chunk of skin came completely off. I just put it back on to cover up the hole to keep the dirt out. It'll make a big scab.

I'm missing part of my ring finger on my left hand from an accident at work. Blisters and small chunks of skin are a piece of cake.

Dude, my wife has blisters bigger than that on her hands.I dont know how long you have been in this trade, but hand damage like that is weekly for me.Looks like your well on your way to scars galore, welcome to the club.

24 years in the trade and I have managed to keep myself relatively scar free. And yeah, I know it isn't that bad; I was just bored and wanted to post something to see how many people would rag on me for what amounts to nothing more than a hole in my hand from a chunk of skin coming off.
Now, I really wish I had taken pictures of that cut I gave myself last year when a razor knife I was using slipped and stabbed me in the meaty section of that same hand above. 3/4" of the blade went right in, and all I did was slap a pressure bandage on it. Two days later my stupid ass was in the emergency room getting stitches because it wouldn't stop seeping, but not until they broke it back open to properly clean it out. I hate hospitals.
