Another firework injury!! 💥🤦♂️
The injuries that occur in a firework-injured hand include soft tissue injuries, fractures, burns and traumatic amputations in addition to disruption of the neurovascular supply. Ground- spinners, sparklers and flares have wicks that are lit, and are the primary culprits of burns and soft tissue injuries. String-bombs and rockets cause blast injuries that result in fractures, amputations and disruption of the hand’s neurovascular supply.
Soft tissue injuries are injuries that cause abrasion and lacerations that affect the skin and underlying fascia. These tissues are essential in covering the underlying blood supply, nerves, muscles and tendon, ligaments, bones and joints. The skin as an organ in its own right is essential for successful hand function as pliable skin allows for tendons to glide under the skin, it stretches over joints to allow for movement and is essential for tactile functions of the hand.
Any soft tissue injury with resulting scar tissue, if left untreated, can have a significant negative impact on hand function by limiting the amount of pliability and elasticity, and reducing the range of movement.
Fractures occur when the vibration of the blast component causes the phalanges to break while the distal volar plates of the interphalangeal joints (IPJs) give way, which results in dislocations and avulsion fractures of the IPJs. In cases where the joint undergoes repair or reconstruction, the complications include infection, stiffness from long-term immobilisation and pain. The stiff and fixed joint has a direct implication on the ability of the patient to assume a specific grip or pinch.
Traumatic amputation occurs when the soft tissues, bones, tendons and ligaments are unable to withstand the explosive force of the firecracker, resulting in a shattering of bone, disruption of the joint, and irreparable damage to the blood vessels and digital nerves as well as insufficient skin coverage.
If you or a loved one are experiencing these conditions, go to the emergency room immediately to prevent any further complications. Stay safe and stay healthy everyone! 🤓

Let’s talk sanitation... it’s so important and critical and I see and hear of far too many, not thinking it’s a big deal. Well let me remind you, it’s a huge deal!
Everything you see in this image is sterile and 100% disposable. This is the top shelf on my metal cart. The middle tray, will hold my pigment bottles, shaping tools and anything else that is not a “disposable” item. Once I am done with a procedure my blade goes in the sharps container and everything else you see here simply gets wrapped up in the dental bib and get thrown away. Everything, including pigment bottles, numbing tubes and bottles etc gets sterilized with hospital grade steri-wipes and gets stored away in a cabinet. The bed, cart, light, floor etc all gets sterilized too. I The “wet” time for steri-wipes is 2 minutes, in those 2 min it’s kills damn near everything 🙌🏻 anytime my hands are not touching a clients face or an item on the sterile/disposable tray, I complete a full glove change. This means my gloves are properly removed, disposed of, hands are then washed and dried and a new pair of gloves goes on. I probably change my gloves on average 5-10 times per appointment. This might seem excessive, but I promise you it is not. It is super important to be washing your hands when taking off a pair of gloves and before placing a new pair on. Blade babes, if you have any questions about sterilization, let me know! Potential clients, if you go in somewhere and it doesn’t look clean and ink bottles are dirty and gunked up, then you’re probably not in the best environment. Do all the research you can before letting someone create a “wound” on you. Stay tuned for some brows that need some brow rehab! You won’t want to miss this and learn about what can be done. XoXo .
