    If a fingernail gets ripped off, will it grow back?

    Allright just wondering that if a fingernail would happen to get ripped off would a new one grow back or not. I know that if you smash your finger and kill your fingernail a new one will grow behind it but if it gets ripped completely off will it grow back? Please say it will

    I'm nut sure.. you might want to have a doctor look at it.

    I think there is a "root" part of the nail where the growing happens.. I supose if this part is intact it will grow back.. but could look deformed. I have a funny looking big toe nail. I snapped the nail running down stairs.. long story

    Do a search of S & M sites, I'm sure there must be someone on one who has had the odd fingernail or two pulled before.

    yeah, it will grow back, I got mine ripped off when I was 12 or 13. I actually had to get stitches in my nail bed, but it grew back, it'll take forever though
