Tiny black dots on my hand

Noticed recently some tiny black dots that have appeared on the palm of my hands.

Not overly worried, just curious what they are.

Hi,
Apart from being moles on the palm I cannot tell you much.From the pictures that you have sent that is what I could gather.Moles are usually harmless collections of pigmented cells called melanocytes on the skin. They can appear alone or in multiples.
They can be flesh-coloured, brown, blue or black spots that vary in shape from oval to round. They can be as small as a pinhead or large enough to cover an entire limb.
Moles are likely to change over a lifetime. They may darken with exposure to sun. They also may start out flat and brown in colour and later become slightly raised and lighter in colour. Some may become raised enough that they form a small stalk and are eventually rubbed off. Others may just disappear.
Most moles are harmless and don't require special care. One should monitor moles for changes in size, shape, colour, texture and sensation that may indicate a problem.

Thanks for the information Dr_Aparna.  The only issue is that the spots have appeared within the last week.
