Are there special lancet devised for arm sticking? Our One Touch Ultra

I thought the blood in your body is circulated- Can a medical professional step in here and help us figure this out?  As far as the arm stick vs finger stick issue, its one of distinct comfort- Yes I guess there are some out there that prefer the finger, just like there are those who only have a little red mark after changing an infusion site after 5 days.
