In brief: Sat on hand/pain

Yes it will, you can not stop the circulation completely by sitting on your hand.
Of corse it may hurt for a short period, but it will all heal quickly.

In brief: OK to sit on hand

Cutting off blood flow to an extremity (arm, hand, leg) can be painful but usually not serious unless prolonged more than 1-2 hours.
In orthopedic surgery tourniquets are used for prolonged periods of time without long term effects.
