Caption: Piercing a blood blister. Close-up of someone piercing a blood blister under their toenail. A blood blister occurs when blood vessels are damaged without breaking the skin (or nail) above it. Blood and other body fluids collect under the skin and form what looks like a blue blister. The pressure can build up and become painful. Here the the nail is being pierced with a sterilised needle in order to release the blood and relieve the pressure.
