    The tips of your fingers will become hard. You will be able to feel this, but it's unlikely anyone will be able to see it. Is a hand model a real thing? Any “damage” done to your hands by playing guitar can be reversed by no longer playing guitar.

    Do you play guitar?

    It will only give your finger callouses. Having callouses on your fingers while playing guitar because it will make your fingers more numb to the pain while pressing on the strings. However, if you haven't played the guitar for a long time, the callouses will be removed and your fingers will hurt again if you play the guitar.

    Definitely no, it will hurt for a while but not that worst. Of course, you should expect that your fingers might get hurt when you start to play a guitar because your fingers are the only reason why guitars are producing sound.

    Depending on the definition of damage you are referring to is what I'm going to dwell on. If you mean a serious injury, I don't think playing a guitar would do that but it would give you finger tips some kind of bruises.
