For the most part I know which wound goes with which injury, but is there a term from a sharp object going under the flesh and coming back out? Besides 'pierce'.I don't think it counts as an impale unless it goes strait through the center mass, and I'm meaning more under the left pectoral muscle.
Serious question, thinking about doing a work based on this.
I've always been partial to the term 'flail chest' because the name of the wound can be caused by a weapon of the same name. A flail is a badass weapon. And doesn't chest flail just sound do hopeless and desperate?
In answer to your question, googling it gave me avulsion wounds (http://www.medstudentlc.com/page.php?id=65), or maybe puncture wound? Hell if I know; I'm a writer Jim, not a damn doctor!
"Fucking painful business."
I would describe it as 'threading through the flesh' or something else that makes it look like a needle stitching together skin.
Perhaps hooking through the skin?
Shank, if it is a raw blade and street lingo.
It was a bit of industrail plastic.
I think the official term is puncture wound. I've had a few in my day.
It's totally a puncture wound. They give pretty cool scars. Weird little circles.
I like the sensation your going for. Gives me the heebie-jeebies.
I had a real one, and I'm going to base a story on it. Mine dind't give me a circle, it's a little bump.
How long have you had it?
I got mine from dog teeth, the scars went through this long process of change but what I have now is a couple of little purple-looking circles where the canines hit.
6 years or so. This was one big one 3 or 4 inches so fairly different.
I see, yeah, that's pretty intense.
Painful. The word you are looking for is painful.
We used to have an acronym we used in some of my medical training.
An arm or hand can be impaled just as a chest cavity can. It would be impaled if it is still in. Punctured when talking about something being penetrated like the skin, heart, or spleen. Penetration is the actual act. A knife penetrated the skin puncturing the heart.
I believe impale would leave the person or object immobile.
